Are you sur­prised Iran’s pres­i­dent has been very vo­cal about the dan­ger of Is­lamic State?

Bloomberg Businessweek (North America) - - Politics / Policy -

Well, I’ve been asked the ques­tion “What hap­pens if the sanc­tions are taken off?” And I said that Iran will con­tinue—and prob­a­bly have more re­sources—to sup­port ter­ror­ism. They’re the prin­ci­pal sup­porter of ter­ror­ist or­ga­ni­za­tions. They’ve used their proxy in Syria for it. Sure, any­one with any sense is con­cerned about ter­ror­ism, par­tic­u­larly home­grown ter­ror­ism. And the fact that he’s wor­ried about some of that is fine. But they’re sup­port­ing, ac­tively, ter­ror­ist or­ga­ni­za­tions.
