By now, Sen. Jeff Flake’s (R – Ariz.) announcement that he will oppose the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) has been overshadowed by Sen. Robert Menendez’ (D – N.J.) Tuesday announcement of his opposition.

Still, I’d like to revisit Flake’s announcement because he was viewed by the administration, in the words of ...

Following the nuclear negotiations with Iran, I am constantly amazed at the revelations that get reported (though often not widely enough) that document the administration’s systematic capitulation to every single Iranian demand.

Though it’s probably not the most shocking news I’ve heard, the news broken by MEMRI, that already in 2011 President...
