Benjamin Netanyahu, Republicans Criticize Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran
WASHINGTON D.C. (Worthy News)– Fallout from the Obama administration’s preliminary nuclear deal with Iran stretched from Capitol Hill to Jerusalem on Easter Sunday, with lawmakers vowing to push ahead with legislation that would give them, not the president, the final say on whether the agreement crosses the finish line, the Washington Times reported.
At the same time, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stepped up his all-out assault on the deal, saying the U.S.-led effort to lighten economic sanctions on Iran will allow Tehran to bolster its “terror machine” and wreak even more havoc across an already-unstable region.
White House officials, including Mr. Obama himself, have worked relentlessly over the past few days to push back against criticism and to dissuade Congress from pursuing legislation that would give the House and Senate the authority to essentially kill the deal. –[wp_colorbox_media url=”http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/apr/5/netanyahu-republicans-take-aim-at-obama-iran-nucle/” type=”iframe” hyperlink=”Source”]
