Republican Party hawks maintain that Obama wants so much to burnish his legacy with an agreement to restrain Iran from becoming a nuclear-armed state that he is not pushing back against Iranian activities in Iraq, Yemen, Syria, Lebanon and Bahrain.In Iraq, Iran-backed militias are fighting alongside Iraqi forces to retake Tikrit, a Sunni stronghold seized by ISIS militants. Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, says the U.S. worries that the militiamen, who are Shiite, might eventually turn against Sunni and Kurdish Iraqis, further destabilizing a country whose future depends on less infighting among the factions. The administration had touted Yemen as a success in the fight against terror, but Houthi rebels, backed by Iran, seized the capital from a U.S.-backed leader who supported American drone strikes against suspected Al-Qaeda figures there. Leaders in Bahrain claim Iran is helping Shia militia; Iranian leaders accuse leaders in Bahrain's capital of Sanaa of supporting anti-Iranian forces there.
