Ed Krayewski on the Case Against New Iran Sanctions

Give John Kerry, and diplomacy, a chance


taking a crack at it
White House

Secretary of State John Kerry came before the Senate Banking Committee to argue against a line of thinking in the Senate that the U.S. should respond to continuing negotiations over Iran's nuclear program by renewing sanctions. Kerry acknowledges he voted for sanctions against Iran several times, but considers any vote now "a vote for or against diplomacy." Kerry was wrong to have voted for sanctions then, writes Ed Krayewski, but is right to call them a mistake now.
