The Daily Beast has published a new opinion piece by SIWPS member Stuart Gottlieb.
“Don’t Buy The Democrats’ New Tough Talk on Iran” explores the increasingly aggressive rhetoric against Iran espoused by congressional Democrats, particularly Democrats who support the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). Highlighting the fact that this “sabre-rattling” has come after rather than before the deal was reached, Gottlieb ultimately questions the credibility of this new rhetoric and finds that hearing such hawkish language from JCPOA supporters is not as surprising as it may seem.
Gottlieb co-wrote the piece with Danielle Pletka, senior vice president for foreign and defense policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute. Pletka and Gottlieb both appeared as featured panelists in a Saltzman Forum held on September 10 at which the JCPOA was the topic.
