Misleading attack ads aimed at Warner


    While watching the PGA golf tourney today, I was treated to an attention-grabbing ad that urged me to contact Senator Warner and tell him to vote against the Iran nuclear agreement.

    The ad was slick and very well-done.  It featured an Army sergeant who had been horribly wounded in IRAQ.  He went on to blame Iran for his wounds.  He described how “terrorists” in Iraq had murdered little children — all the while the screen was showing Iranian mullahs.  

    Obviously, the ad is an attempt to subvert the nuclear agreement with Iran by blaming Iran for killing and wounding soldiers in Irag.

    I didn’t catch the name of the organization responsible for the ad — something like “American Security Initiative.”

    I immediately fired off messages to Warner and Kaine urging them to support the nuclear agreement.
