Reply to Senator Feinstein

Dear Senator Feinstein,

Thank you for your reply to my emails of February 7, March 1, and March 4. I am glad to see that you agree with me that the President has overreached himself in the matter of the NSA wiretaps outside the FISA framework: I must say this was obvious to us outside the Beltway in December, and I hope that you will accellerate the process of holding the Administration accountable rather than giving them another pass, or waiting for the Republicans to give the Democrats the talking points.

We do have a far graver matter before us now: the Administration's insistence that diplomacy is failing and will fail in Iran, leaving only war as an option to prevent Iran from pursuing its nuclear program. It has been widely reported that the Administration is refusing to take use of strategic nuclear weapons off the table, against the counsel of its military advisers.

This is beyond recklessness, idiocy and stupidity: it is insane, as George Stephanopoulos said on Sunday to Joe Klein. It also looks like national suicide. The United States has become the most serious threat to the security of the peoples of the earth, and has become so led by a very small number of people. Please bring the Congress together to take imediate action: do not allow this Administration to take the course it is set on. Do not leave it until it's too late, as we have seen so many times with this Administration.
