Democrats delivered President Obama a victory on his Iran deal today, with enough votes to sustain a veto of a resolution of disapproval. They own it now. All of it. It’s their fault our debt-ridden nation is promising even more aide to our allies to protect themselves from the Iranian threat. It’s their fault that war is now more likely, according to former top military officials.

A group of former top military officials and intelligence analysts released a new report Wednesday concluding that the nuclear deal with Iran will threaten American interests and increase the probability of military conflict in the Middle East.

In its report, the Iran Strategy Council wrote that the nuclear deal, called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), “will enable Iran to increase support for terrorist and insurgent proxies, aggravate sectarian conflict and trigger both nuclear and conventional proliferation cascades.”
