Now you can get all of your Obama administration Iran nuclear deal justifications in one handy location.
With the 60-day congressional review period now underway, the lobbying war will only be getting more intense. Groups like the National American Iranian Council and J Street are lobbying on the behest of the White House, while AIPAC and other pro-Israel groups have geared up to try to blow the deal out of the water.
When asked if he’ll be lobbying Congress to shoot down the deal, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu replied, “Look, I feel it’s my obligation as the prime minister of Israel to speak out against something that endangers the survival of my country, the security of the region, the security of the world.”
President Obama angered many members of Congress, including some in Democratic leadership, by taking the deal to the UN Security Council on Monday. The administration insists they didn’t break the nuclear agreement review law because Congress’ approval is still needed to implement the deal.
The Iran deal Twitter account links to the White House’s Iran deal website, which includes “Iran deal facts” and graphics that the administration hopes will be circulated on social media.
No word yet on whether they’ll be retweeting the Ayatollah.
