Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas took to Twitter on Monday to warn Iran that any nuclear deal with the US could easily be wiped out once President Barack Obama leaves office. But did he and 46 other senators step beyond their authority?
While Iran gives cautious signs that it's willing to consider negotiations with western nations, and the E.U. and U.S. increase the sanctions against the country in an effort to halt its nuclear ambitions, Iranians worry their country is hurtling toward war.
State Department confirms Shane Bauer and Joshua Fattal, captured by the Iranian government while hiking along the Iran-Iraq border and charged with espionage, were freed today.
