A major U.S. intelligence review has concluded that Iran stopped work on a suspected nuclear weapons program more than four years ago, a stark reversal of previous intelligence assessments that Iran was actively moving toward a bomb.
CLEVELAND - Republican presidential hopeful Jeb Bush got a second chance on Thursday to explain why he wouldn't have gone down the path that led his brother to war in Iraq. But during the first GOP primary debate, he sought to place the blame for Iraq's failure on President Obama, claiming that Islamic militants took over "because of the void" created by departing U.S.
CLEVELAND - Lindsey Graham would deploy American troops to Syria and Iraq if he were to become president, the South Carolina senator said Thursday at a gathering of Republican candidates seeking the nation's highest office.
President Barack Obama on Wednesday described the historic deal to curb Iran's nuclear program as the best way to make the world safer and more secure, and challenged critics at home and abroad to offer an alternative that doesn't mean war.
What if the Iran deal had taken place in 2002, right after the country's clandestine but nascent nuclear program had begun? In announcing an historic agreement, President Obama asked skeptics to consider the alternative. Without a nuclear deal, "Iran could produce, operate and test more and more centrifuges," he said.

Washington Post Staff WriterSunday, March 27, 2005; Page A15 Lacking direct evidence, Bush administration officials argue that Iran's nuclear program must be a cover for bomb-making. Vice President Cheney recently said, "They're already sitting on an awful lot of oil and gas. Nobody can figure why they need nuclear as well to generate energy."
The sad truth of Sunday's nuclear agreement with Iran is that it could have come 10 years earlier and with far fewer costs. It took a Mideast war, an accelerating nuclear program, a crisis with U.N. inspectors and crippling sanctions before the sides started talking.
Less than 24 hours after Republican Sen. Tom Cotton shared an insanely adorable photo of his just-born son Gabriel, snug in that wide-striped hospital-issued swaddle cloth, the Arkansas lawmaker went on an epic Twitter rant aimed at the Iranian foreign minister. For Cotton, there is simply nothing that will keep him from the Iran debate.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
