Senior White House aides have issued similar veto threats since the end of December, when Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman Robert Menendez, a Democrat, introduced the Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act of 2013.  The bill— which would trigger new sanctions tools against Iran should negotiations fail to reach a comprehensive agreement in twelve months time— has since garnered 59 public cosponsors in the upper chamber across party lines.

    Reblogged this on Catholic Glasses and commented:
    Obama in August 2023 Chastised President Assad for the Chemical Weapons, that POTUS had AlQaeda use on Syrians, then he pivots to Syria’s Ally “Russia and pulverized them with Geo Soros styled “Regime Change” and then plays “Patty-cake with Iran” ignoring their WMD’s. Shame in Obama!
