Congress to Hold Off on New Iran Sanctions – Mark Landler and Jonathan Weisman
(Daily Alert)

After a meeting with President Obama on Tuesday, Senate leaders agreed to hold off on a vote to impose new sanctions on Iran until after talks in Geneva later this week. After a two-hour session, a bipartisan group of the Senate’s top foreign policy and national security committees urged Mr. Obama to reject any nuclear deal with Iran that did not include a tangible rollback of its nuclear weapons program. With the Senate going on Thanksgiving recess on Friday, it will be at least two weeks before any measure will come up for a vote. (New York Times)
