President Obama met with veterans and Gold Star Mothers, who understand the loss of life required to defend freedom, and pushed his Iranian Nuclear Deal as one that would avoid war and the casualties of war. Even with a veto proof Senate, the president reached out to them to support the Iran Deal to be voted on by Congress.

2. Clamping down on Veto proof Iran Deal
With enough votes in Congress to ensure the survival of his landmark nuclear deal with Iran, President Obama on Thursday turned his attention to other constituencies as the White House ramps up efforts to sell the agreement to a skeptical public.
The president, along with other officials such as Secretary of State John Kerry, met with veterans and Gold Star Mothers — mothers of men or women who died in the line of duty — at the White House.
Mr. Obama made the case that the alternative to his deal with Tehran is war, and that another conflict in the Middle East would result in a new wave of American casualties. via Washington Times
