Obama Tells Congress to Approve Deal, Khamenei Directs Rouhani to Pick It Apart


That’s the Supreme Leader’s letter to President Hassan Rouhani, as released on his Twitter account.

So while President Obama is urging Congress to quickly drop its opposition and approve the deal, Iran’s leader is urging his president and lawmakers to carefully pick it apart.

The White House dismisses tweets from Ayatollah Khamenei as fodder for domestic consumption.

In another slap in the face to the United States, Khamenei pardoned 930 convicts today for Eid al-Fitr. Americans Saeed Abedini, Amir Hekmati and Jason Rezaian were not among them.
