Interesting timing of this Committee hearing announcement.
Chairman Howard Berman has decided not to wait for the outcome of next week’s meeting between the P5+1 and Iran in Vienna. Nor will he wait to see if Iran lives up to its promise to allow IAEA inspectors at the Qom nuclear facility by the October 25 deadline.
Regardless of how those events transpire, apparently the Chairman has made up his mind to pass a gas embargo as soon as possible.
