House Speaker John Boehner has issued an invitation to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak to a joint session of Congress on February 11th concerning Iran.
Boehner issued the invitation in response to President Obama's threat to veto further sanctions against Iran.
If anyone can make the case of the folly of entering a nuclear deal with Iran, it is Netanyahu. Not that it would make a difference to President Obama who loathes Netanyahu. Nevertheless, Netanyahu's words will resonate with a large segment of the American public.
This isn't the first time Bibi has addressed a joint session of Congress. He did so previously both in 1996 and more recently in 2011. Yet it would provide another opportunity to contrast Obama's glib buffoonery and Netanyahu's eloquent statesmanship.
