After the initial round of talks failed, it is obvious that Mr. Kerry has his work cut out for him. In an unusual alignment, Saudi Arabia, the Gulf States, Israel, and France plainly stated that the deal offered to Iran was far too generous and unacceptable. In addition, indications are that the US Congress is not aboard Mr. Kerry's ship and will introduce amendments this week to toughen economic sanctions on Iran. Mr. Kerry will testify before Congress on Wednesday in an attempt to convince Congress to hold off on imposing additional sanctions. Congressional aids say that Congress is highly skeptical of the Geneva plan and Mr. Kerry faces a tough uphill battle.
