by Michael S. Rozeff, Lew Rockwell:
Obama is negotiating with Iran. Now he encounters the neocon counterattack, seeking to stop the talks.
The neocons want to strangle Iran. Why? Must Iran be throttled to protect Americans? Must Iran be strangled to protect Israel? A “yes” answer to either question is senseless.
There is some disarray at Obama’s highest levels. His own Treasury Secretary (Dan Cohen) and chief negotiator (Wendy Sherman) ask Congress not to impose further sanctions, but one hour later Cohen adds a bunch of companies to the sanctions list. McCain and others in Congress again threaten new sanctions. Iran wisely says it will continue the negotiations, despite these pinpricks. Obama says nothing and bides his time. He has won some backing in Congress for negotiations, namely, Tim Johnson and Mike Crapo.
