Think about that. The President of the United States is supposed to take the lead in foreign policy. Because this President refuses to go to war with Iran, and is, in fact, taking steps to bring Iran to the table and negotiate with them after 30+ years, the war hawks in the Congress want to undermine that. They are mad that this President is choosing NOT to bring this country into another war and feed the Military Industrial Complex. How obvious was this that this speech was all about undermining the President?
Israeli intelligence officials have been briefing both Obama administration officials and visiting U.S. senators about their concerns on the Kirk-Menendez bill, which would increase sanctions on Iran only if the Iranian government can’t strike a deal with the so-called P5+1 countries by a June 30 deadline or fails to live up to its commitments. Meanwhile, the Israeli prime minister’s office has been supporting the Kirk-Menendez bill, as does the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, ahead of what will be a major foreign policy confrontation between the executive and legislative branches of the U.S. government in coming weeks.
