Not Enough Support to Override an Obama Veto on Iran Sanctions

President Obama “used his State of the Union address Tuesday to threaten a veto of any congressional plan to slap Iran with new sanctions, and he just might have gotten his way,” Defense One reports.  

“The top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee thinks Obama is ‘naive’ to believe the U.S. is having any ‘great success’ in persuading Iran to curb parts of its nuclear program—but he is not optimistic there’s enough momentum in the Senate, all told, to ram through new sanctions against the wishes of the president.”
