Grover Norquist and the Iran Lobby
American Thinker ^ | 14 Nov 2011 | Clare M. Lopez and David Reaboi

A report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) released this week shows that Iran has made considerable progress in its nuclear weapons program. This alarming move toward a deliverable nuclear capability also demonstrates the dangerous consequences of the efforts-from 2007 through at least 2010-by a group of Washington anti-Israel activists and lobbyists who went to bat for the Islamic Republic through an organization known as the Campaign for a New American Policy for Iran (CNAPI).

This report is about the ways that Grover Norquist's Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) supported CNAPI activities, through support for a second organization, the American Conservative Defense Alliance (ACDA), a founder and leader of the CNAPI campaign. The policies for which CNAPI lobbied became the do-nothing Iranian policies of the Obama campaign in 2008 and of the Obama administration to the present day: no support for the Iranian Green movement and Iranian democracy activists, few or no economic sanctions, and no military option. And advocacy for unconditional negotiations, as Obama had advocated during the 2008 campaign.

The report first describes all the connections among Norquist's ATR, and the lobbying groups ACDA and CNAPI -- and then why those connections created dangerous consequences for national security.

It is really remarkable (or maybe par for the course) that Norquist isn’t shunned and condemned by all conservatives and Republicans. Why in the world should we care what somebody, that is so obviously working toward our subjugation to a hostile foreign ideology, cares about taxes?

Norquist has been infiltrating and coordinating conservative and libertarian groups for 21 years. He is too well connected and knows where the bodies are buried.
