Oh. It's Not a "Treaty"

Have to admit that I wasn't keeping up with the parsing since the Clinton(s) left office.  I should have.

The White House did not pursue the nuclear agreement with Iran as an international treaty, because getting U.S. Senate advice and consent for a treaty has “become physically impossible,” Secretary of State John Kerry told lawmakers on Tuesday.

Kerry, of course, is lying.  The only treaties which are "impossible" to get through the Senate are the ones which put the US in a secondary position internationally, such as "Law of the Sea" or "Comprehensive Test Ban."

Others which vitiate the Constitution cannot pass, either.  But not to worry!!  We have SCOTUS for that purpose.
