What's the deal with the deal brewing between the U.S. and Iran?
It’s become an international debate. The proposed deal between the United States and Tehran. Designed to stop Iran’s nuclear weapons aspirations. Something that, if it works, could make the world a safer place. If it doesn’t: much less safe.
As a sign of good faith, the Obama administration says no more sanctions against Iran. Many in Congress, who otherwise have supported sanctions, are with him on this gamble. Others are not.
Of course, enter House Speaker John Boehner’s invite to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address a Joint Session of Congress about the dangers of trusting the Iranian regime – and you’ve got the makings of a monumental debate over a monumental issue.
But what is it, exactly, the United States is trying to extract from Iran? Today we are learning more about that.
Much as the White House is miffed at Boehner for inviting Netanyahu without first alerting the president, The European Union is upset. Because it was kept in the darktoo, about this reportedly proposed deal.
