Obama: "Nothing New" in Netanyahu's Speech; Says Israeli PM's Congress Speech Lacks Option

U.S. President Barack Obama said today (March 4, 2015) that there was "nothing new" in Benjamin Netanyahu's controversial speech to Congress yesterday, insisting the Israeli Prime Minister did not offer a better option than the current negotiations, the Yahoo News website reports.

Netanyahu "did not offer any viable alternatives," Obama said.

Netanyahu -- before an impassioned joint meeting of Congress -- denounced the ongoing U.S. talks with Iran, which if successful, would be a key plank of Obama's foreign policy legacy.

Receiving a warm welcome from Obama's Republican foes, Netanyahu insisted the deal "doesn't block Iran's path to the bomb. It paves Iran's path to the bomb."
