Facts on Uranium One
Earl Hood (Your Views, Jan. 8) claims Hillary Clinton sold 20 percent of U.S. uranium to Russia. The Uranium One sale was approved by the nine-member Committee on Foreign Investments.
The State Department’s representative was an assistant secretary, not Clinton. Even so, the committee can’t stop a sale from going through; it can only approve a sale. The president is the only one who can stop a sale. Clinton could have objected — as could the eight other voting members (none did) — but that objection alone would not have stopped the sale.
A well-informed citizenry is one of the key pillars of democracy. Please, step outside the confines of political tribalism and exercise some critical thinking. The future of our country depends on it.
