Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will come to Congress next Tuesday to try to mobilize it against the Obama administration’s efforts to reach a deal with Iran. This week, he described Congress as the “last stop” before a deal that he deems catastrophic for Israel. But will Congress come to Netanyahu’s help? Can Congress thwart such a deal? And what kind of a deal are President Obama and Secretary Kerry trying to secure? In what way does its chief characteristics differ from Netanyahu’s approach?
To answer these questions and others, please join us for a briefing call on Friday, February 27th, at 4:00 PM Eastern Time, with two of America’s leading experts on this issue, Larry Hanauer and Joseph Cirincione.
Larry Hanauer is a senior international policy analyst at the RAND Corporation, where he focuses on foreign policy and national security.
