Call it “Plastic Ono Band diplomacy”:

President Barack Obama talked briefly about the Iran nuclear deal and said “give peace a chance.” Via the pool report:

“My preference is for peace and diplomacy, and this is one of the reasons why I’ve sent the message to Congress that now is not the time for us to impose new sanctions, now is the time for us to allow the diplomats and technical experts to do their work.”

“What we want to do is give diplomacy a chance, and give peace a chance.”

It kind of loses something, doesn’t it?
