Iran: The Senate Strikes Back by Elizabeth Drew | NYRblog | The New York Review of Books:
"Ever since Hurricane Bibi blew through Washington last week, advocates and opponents of a possible nuclear agreement with Iran have been assessing the damage. It’s clear that the traditional bipartisan approach toward Israel has been smashed. But the essential question is what effect Netanyahu’s visit will have on the the nuclear deal and above all, whether Congress, by bringing it to a direct vote as it now threatens, will reject it, thus ending a long effort to rein in Iran’s nuclear ambitions and raising a long-term question as to whether US negotiators’ word amounts to anything.***
The stakes are clear: not only Barack Obama’s potentially greatest foreign policy achievement but also any hope of avoiding a war between Israel and Iran or even a nuclear conflagration in the Middle East."
