AIPAC Pushing For New Sanctions on Iran

Not pleased with recent Iran nuke deal

The most powerful pro-Israel advocacy group in the U.S., the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, is bucking the Obama administration by urging Congress to press forward with legislation that could impose new nuclear-related sanctions on Iran.

In the wake of Iran's agreement over the weekend to a six-month deal that would place strictures on that country's nuclear program in exchange for relief from some international sanctions, top aides to President Barack Obama urged Congress to hold off any action on new sanctions that they say could upset the pact.
