    Since it will be the grand jury that indicts or not.
    And this investigation has been going on for a very long time.

    Color me surprized. I didn't think the Holder Justice Department would ever go after a fellow Democrat. Certainly not a sitting senator, anyway.

    On the other hand, let's see if they actually file the charges.

    That's the big question mark. I don't know that Europe has the appetite. They're already under pressure. Israel has clearly stated it's intentions, so I don't know that Obama is left a lot of room to do anything other than lay the deal on the table, and hope. I think it's doomed to failure, but only time will tell whether that's entirely true or not. There's little doubt that the nations of the ME would prefer sanctions to nuking up, but Saudi Arabia, at least, has given signs they're fully prepared to do just that. I don't think Obama wants to be the president presiding over the introduction of a nuclear ME.

    And might you tell the rest of us in what dictionary or lexicon of phrases is "being surprised" is considered to be a synonym for whining? And where did the poster ever oppose his being charged?

    Hypocrisy? No, looks more like you are just making hay out of a strawman...at it's finest.

    Well the French aren't to happy about the Iranians stance on their BM's. So that's a plus. Moreover Egypt will speak out and especially if the Saud acquire their Nuke from the Pakistani.

    I was reading today about Kerry stating to the Saudi's that inspections would be intrusive, a must have, and run past the expiration date of any deal made.

    Never mind that the Federal investigation has been going on for several months in front of a grand jury.

    Did you even notice that Menendez excoriated McConnell for trying to advance the DEM sanctions bill before the Iran talks are done?
    But heh, carry on with your anti-Obama noise, even though your fellow righties in this thread aren't with you; kudos to them
    One does not have to believe in a 'conspiracy' to question Holder's motives. Obama does not need to "conspire", any more than Putin does - the modern enforcers know when the boss is unhappy and how to take care of business. It has not just been the past few months, Menendez has been under fire over the past three years for allegations of hiring underage prostitutes in the Dominican Republic, for accepting suspicious campaign donations and much more. (see: Your 2014 Guide to the Scandals Surrounding Senator Bob Menendez). Yet the Justice department was less than enthused with bringing down a party member. Were they waiting for the clock to run out?

    But in the last six months Menendez has been a harsh critic of President Obama's policy and negotiations with Cuba and Iran and has been a staunch supporter of Israel. And Holder's leaving soon so the timing is curious - looks like the nod has gone out for a whack job.

    Very interesting.

    As has been said, it's Sunni vs Shia. That leaves us in the middle, which is no place to be in a dog fight.

    Depends on the scope. Intrusive only means something if everything is on the table. I'm not sure, by any stretch, that everything is in fact on the table.
