Prepared Opening Statement by Senator John Kerry Before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations Hearing: U.S. Strategy Regarding Iran

March 5, 2009

Weapon Program: 

  • Nuclear

Related Country: 

  • Iran

I am very pleased today to welcome Dr. Zbigniew Brzezinski and General Brent Scowcroft, two of our most insightful strategic thinkers and most distinguished public servants. I can think of no better way to cap off this week’s series of events on Iran and its troubling nuclear program. If America is going to successfully overcome this most difficult and pressing foreign policy challenge, we are going to need the kind of wisdom and insight that today’s witnesses have demonstrated throughout their careers.
