Ninety-five to nothing. That was what the Senate voted in 1997 when then Vice President Al Gore brought the signed Kyoto Accords home, and senators decided it wasn't in the best interest of the U.S.
Sen. Barbara Mikulski and Ben Cardin should now be publicly raising the same question about the so-called "deal" that Iran, Russia and China like that does nothing for the U.S. ("Bargaining with Tehran," July 14).
By both President Barack Obama's and Secretary of State John Kerry's own admissions, Iran is well on its way toward developing a nuclear weapons program despite years of international sanctions.
The American people need to know exactly which country or countries cheated and violated the sanctions to help Iran get to this point and why the U.S. should now validate their bad behavior to our nation's detriment.
