Just last week Mr. Obama announced he was invoking the waiver power for another six months. If presidents can figuratively drive a truck through such a narrow opening, what is possible with a more generalized waiver power?

President Obama has also regularly invoked broader national security waivers in legislation restricting funding to the Palestinian Authority or to international agencies supporting the PA or terrorist groups.

In drafting any new Iran sanctions legislation, our elected representatives need to great care that the current president not be enabled to further indulge his fantasies about resetting U.S. relationships around the world.
