GOP Letter to Iran: Not Illegal, Not Smart Either

Doyle McManus, LAT
It seemed like a good idea at the time. Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), a rising conservative star, persuaded 46 fellow Republicans to sign a letter to Iran’s Ayatollah Ali Khamenei et al warning that Congress could revoke any nuclear deal that President Obama makes.But as one of Napoleon’s ministers said of a decision that went awry, it was worse than a crime; it was a blunder.Notwithstanding yelps from overwrought Democrats, the senators’ letter to Khamenei wasn’t against the law, much less treasonous.
