Iran Deal

Two Debates on Iran

As Congress begins its consideration of the Iran deal, two distinct debates have been hopelessly conflated. The first is the debate over how Congress should vote on the so-called “resolution of disapproval” that will be introduced sometime in early September. A second is less concrete but no less critical: Not whether a better alternative now lies before us, but whether we could and should have done better.  It is in reply to this question that the White House’s repeated warnings of war (and other bad consequences) are a misdirection. Worse, they are an evasion of democratic accountability.
