Forget Congress, Obama’s Taking the Iran Deal to the UN

It took years to get other nations on board with sanctions against Iran, and Barack Obama has done his best to undo all that work — for nothing in return. Meanwhile, Congress tried to insert itself into the process, but all it got was an empty political victory. Congress now needs a two-thirds majority to disapprove of Obama’s bad deal. But it might not even matter, as Obama could essentially skip Congress altogether. CNS News reports, “Despite a legal obligation to allow Congress to review the Iran nuclear agreement for 60 days, the Obama administration will press ahead with a U.N. Security Council resolution enshrining the deal, likely within days.” According to Secretary of State John Kerry, implementation of the agreement will begin “within 90 days of the UN Security Council endorsing the deal.” Obama has worked his deal, declared it’s awesome, threatened to veto any congressional measure of disapproval, and wants to get on with securing the UN’s seal of approval for his legacy-building enterprise. And yet he had the temerity to say, “I welcome a robust debate in Congress on this issue and I welcome scrutiny of the details of this agreement.” As long as he can ignore the debate, that is.
