Description

Ted Cruz and the gang are on the war path again!

Hardliners in the U.S. Senate have taken another step toward thwarting detente by writing to Iranian Supreme Leader Khamenei that if he and President Obama negotiate a “mere executive agreement” on Iran’s (civilian) nuclear program that is not approved by Congress, it will bind neither Obama’s successor nor a future Congress.

The condescending letter, signed by 47 of 54 Republican senators, must have Iran’s Revolutionary Guard celebrating. With enemies like these who needs friends?

Join Sheldon Richman as he delves into the motives for this move, and the history behind the US-Iranian conflict.
