Contrary to "Letter to Iran is a disgrace" (March 11), the letter to Iranian leaders from 47 GOP senators was not a call to war but part of the delicate negotiations between the P-5 plus 1 nations and Iran. The terms of a final agreement are not yet public, but sufficient information has been leaked to indicate that Iran, with the approval of our president will become a nuclear power, but at a somewhat reduced pace, and with the possibility of a breakout to a bomb in a year or less. With no permission by Iran to the International Atomic Energy Agency to inspect all of the Iranian nuclear facilities, any agreement, even for the limited time, will be a farce.
The Republican senators have sent a message that the current state of negotiations presents a threat to U.S. interests internationally as well as domestically. Is the White House listening or does it think that it can govern by fiat, ignoring the Congress and the Supreme Court in its unilateral decisions?
