Oh, the irony!joint session of Congress to speak out against the Iranian nuclear sellout back in February (before we knew how bad it really was), President Hussein Obama is calling upon the ambassadors of the United Kingdom, France and Germany to the United States, to lobby Congress to pass the sellout.
Obama administration officials flooding Congress to sell the pact are now working in tandem with ambassadors from the three European nations — Great Britain, France and Germany — that also signed off on the July 14 agreement.
The diplomatic trio, whose countries are known together as the “E3,” echo administration talking points and parries specific concerns from skeptical members of Congress. They also push a signature message: that the Iran deal is an international agreement, not just the handiwork of a Democratic president scorned by the GOP.
“We think it’s important that people who will vote on the bill understand that it’s not just about this administration and the Iranian government. The other governments who are part of the deal, what we call the P5+1, also have views on it and also think it’s the right way to go,” British Ambassador Peter Westmacott told POLITICO just after meeting with senators on Tuesday.
Can someone please explain to me why the Europeans lobbying Congress is okay but Netanyahu lobbying Congress wasn't?
