“Never has so much been written about a speech that hasn’t been given,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday in reference to his upcoming speech to a joint session of Congress. The Israeli leader has stirred up controversy in Washington by accepting an invitation from GOP leaders to speak. We discuss Tuesday’s speech, which was expected to focus on Iran’s threat to Israel, and examine the likely political fallout from Netanyahu’s visit.
