The debate over the proposed agreement with Iran limiting their ability to develop a nuclear weapon has passed the silly point and has reached the status of absurdity. Some critics actually state that it permits Iran to create such a weapon. The opposite is, of course, true.
If, as seems likely, President Barack Obama retains enough support to complete the nuclear deal with Iran, it will be largely because enough members of the House and Senate are persuaded by his argument that the only other real option is war. This was the rhetorical gauntlet the president threw down at his press conference last week. Equally significant, Mr. Obama omitted the until-now obligatory warning that "all options, including the military one, remain on the table."
WASHINGTON -- Rep. Donna F. Edwards on Wednesday criticized her opponent in Maryland's Senate race, Rep. Chris Van Hollen, for "holding his finger to the air" rather than coming out in support of a nuclear agreement with Iran negotiated by the Obama administration.

Now that President Obama has signed a bill giving Congress, at its request, greater oversight authority over any potential Iran nuclear agreement — including the explicit opportunity to vote down the deal — the cacophony from those opposed to diplomatic negotiations with Iran has reached a new high.
President Obama has proclaimed Hillary Clinton an effective secretary of state. All along, it must have been the plan for Russia to seize the eastern Ukraine, Beijing to build airstrips and assert sovereignty over international shipping lanes in the South China Sea, and Iran to have nuclear weapons capabilities.
Rep. Donna F. Edwards is facing criticism from members of the Jewish community for votes she has taken on Israel during her tenure in the House — positions that some believe will limit her support from an important constituency in her bid for the Senate.
Don Cooke remembers the protesters pouring over the wall of the U.S. embassy in Iran — some wearing images of the Ayatollah Khomeini on their chests — and his scrambled escape into the roiled streets of Tehran.
Sen. Ben Cardin became the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Thursday, providing the Obama administration with a potentially powerful ally at a critical time for U.S. foreign policy.
It has been an Iranian tradition since 1979 to end Friday prayers with chants of "Death to America!" In a purely rational world, that would be all one needed to know that Iran is not a reliable negotiating partner. Alas, we do not live in such a world. But there's more evidence.
