U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and British Foreign Secretary William Hague will both be in Geneva on Saturday.

    Defense: Breaking yet another promise, this one to Congress, the administration jeopardizes our national security with plans to eliminate an entire squadron of intercontinental ballistic missiles and destroy its silos. Yet another example of what President Obama meant in 2012 when he promised Russian President Dmitry Medvedev at the Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul, South Korea, that after his re-election he would have more "flexibility" on defense issues, comes on the news that an ICBM squadron would be scrapped to comply with the New START Treaty — even as both the Russians and Chinese deploy new ballistic missiles. A document...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — On the eve of new talks, President Barack Obama is plunging ahead in search of a nuclear agreement with Iran despite outright opposition from American allies in the Middle East and deep skepticism, if not open hostility, from Congress. Iran is pressing ahead in its own way, trying to make a deal more likely to ease painful economic sanctions without losing its own hardliners at home. There was a fresh sign of efforts to make headway as negotiators from Iran, the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council and Germany prepared for Wednesday's new round of...

    French President Francois Hollande began a three-day visit to Israel over the weekend, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was all smiles and full of praise for the French delegation that was apparently the last holdout in thwarting a “bad deal” that would have traded sanctions relief for some all-but-meaningless nuclear concessions from the Iranians: Hollande vowed to keep up pressure on Iran and not make any concessions regarding nuclear proliferation. …Speaking alongside Hollande, Netanyahu once again warned that Iran could soon have enough fissile material to develop a bomb within weeks and that Israel would not be bound to...

    Administration ups efforts to prevent Congress from passing new penalties against Tehran that could put kibosh on nuclear deal The Obama administration Tuesday stepped up lobbying against congressional action for new sanctions on Iran, with the White House warning such a move would lead to war. “The American people justifiably and understandably prefer a peaceful solution that prevents Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, and this agreement, if it’s achieved, has the potential to do that,” White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters. “The alternative is military action.” Earlier in the day State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said John Kerry...

    The roll out of O-Blunder-Care has taken almost all of the oxygen out every media news room. One is left to wonder if anything else is happening of importance. There is, and it's not good. Secretary of State John Kerry is trying to cut some serious nuclear slack to Obama's newest best friend Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. As the Wall Street Journal reported this week: GENEVA—Iran and world powers expect to announce an initial deal as early as Friday to curb Iran's nuclear program in exchange for an easing of sanctions, a step that would mark the first breakthrough in...

    With a first round of nuclear negotiations with world powers ending without agreement, Iranian officials looked ahead Sunday to parallel talks with the U.N.’s nuclear chief amid reminders that concessions by Tehran have limits. The overall message from Iran closely mirrored the work-in-progress tone of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and other powerful envoys, who failed to seal a first-step accord during overtime talks in Geneva and but then quickly agreed to try again next week. The administration of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is emphasizing that the talks are a work in progress. He’s mollifying hard-liners by reasserting that...
