William Kristol's newest protege, Senator Cotton[head] (Kristol's other protege was Sarah Palin, so there's that to think about) is worried that Tehran is being controlled by the Iranians.
[On the Sunday talk shows, Cotton] "couldn't control himself, and had to quote Netanyahu by saying "The alternative to a bad deal is a better deal". He then prattled on with some fears, that Iran must be stopped because: "Moreover, we have to stand up to Iran’s attempts to drive for regional dominance. They already control Tehran. Increasingly, they control Damascus and Beirut and Baghdad, and now Sanaa as well. " h/t daily kos
Cotton[head] is worried that the Iranians control their own capital city. Glad he's on top of those foreign policy thingies, aren't you?

Senate Historian Can’t Find Anything In History That Matches GOP Iran Sabotage Letter
"Republicans who are already reeling from the letter that 47 of their senators sent to Iran were dealt another blow as the U.S. Senate Historian’s Office can’t find another example of this type of behavior anywhere in Senate history. McClatchy reported: The U.S. Senate Historian’s Office has so far been unable to find another example in the chamber’s history where one political party openly tried to deal with a foreign power against a presidential policy, as Republicans have attempted in their open letter to Iran this week.
We haven’t found a precedent,” said Senate Historian Donald Ritchie. “That doesn’t mean there isn’t a precedent. After 200 years. It’s hard to find anything that unprecedented.” In the past, Ritchie said, “what usually happened is a senator would sign a ’round robin’ letter or a sense of the Senate resolution, or write a letter to the president or secretary of State voicing objections to some particular policy.”
Oh, look! Over there! The Obamas flew in two different airplanes!
