William A. Jacobson on Larry O'Connor Show December 29 2014

On March 27, 2015, I appeared in studio on Washington’s Drive at Five hosted by Larry O’Connor on WMAL 630 in D.C.

We touched on two completely unrelated, but interesting, subjects: Obama’s plan to make an end run around Congress to the U.N. Security Council to sign a nuke deal with Iran,...

47 Traitors. White House snubs. A Presidential temper tantrum. Public fights with Netanyahu. Damaging international relationships with Israel. Leaked intel information.

The Obama administration has vented its fury at Israel based on Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress, and pre-election statements.

None of those issues justified the complete fury coming from the administration. It just didn’t add up.

This is how The Guardian broke down the differences between the United States and the French on Friday:

As the arbitrary deadline to strike a deal with Iran draws close, Secretary Kerry says “genuine progress” has been made.

France is not so sure the negotiations are going well, and neither is Israel. Both nations share concerns that Iran is receiving far too many concessions, saying any rush to relax...

Last week, Senator Tom Cotton and 46 other Republican Senators penned an open letter to Iranian leaders, reiterating Congress’s constitutionally-guaranteed roll in negotiations with foreign powers.

Democrats responded by mounting their high horses and leading the charge against the ‘47 Traitors.’
