Obama to Argue Iran Debate Is Most Important Since Iraq War

Updated on

President Barack Obama will argue on Wednesday that a congressional debate on whether to block a deal with Iran over its nuclear program is the most consequential foreign policy issue since the decision on going to war in Iraq.

Obama, in a speech at American University in Washington, will argue that many of the agreement’s critics are the same people who rushed to support going to war in Iraq in 2003, the White House said in a statement.
