McCarthy condemns Obama for licensing aircraft sales to Iran

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., blasted the Obama administration's decision on Tuesday to issue an export license allowing Airbus to sell more than 100 aircraft to Iran Air, in defiance of GOP warnings that Iran has a history of using these aircraft for military purposes. Only weeks after Iran was found to have violated the nuclear agreement, the Obama administration is yet again giving the Ayatollah more concessions, McCarthy said in response to the decision. House Republicans voted to ban these sales last week, but that was a symbolic gesture given the certainty that Obama would veto the bill if it ever reached his desk. There were reports that the administration was considering the licensing in order to fortify the Iran nuclear deal before President-elect Trump takes office, a complaint Republicans echoed in condemning the sale.
