SAS Sniper Kills IS Executioner Before He Can Behead 8-Year-Old Boy

Opponents of the Iran nuclear deal in Congress admit they can no longer kill the accord. Their focus now is making sure there will be a vote on the agreement at all, and salvaging some political benefit from their well-funded bid to stop it.

Lawmakers, Congressional staffers and lobbyists opposed to the deal reached in Vienna last month tell us they are now fighting to get more than 60 votes in the Senate for a resolution of disapproval to avoid a filibuster by Democrats supporting President Barack Obama. That is a far cry from the 67 votes in the Senate needed, along with two thirds of the House, to overturn an expected presidential veto of that resolution.

Yes, overturning an Obama veto was always a longshot. House Speaker John Boehner in April was privately warning Republicans that his party didn't have the votes to stop the deal. Now Republican leaders are saying this out in the open.

Bob Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said Wednesday it was "very unlikely" there would be 67 votes against the deal in the Senate, but there would be a "bipartisan majority" voting to disapprove of the deal. As of now, only two Senate Democrats and 14 House Democrats have come out against the pact.  (The Republicans hold 54 seats in the Senate.)

From the very beginning, this was much ado about an aberration, a tragic aberration to be sure, but an aberration nonetheless.
