The US Congress moved quickly Tuesday to signal its disapproval of Iranian President Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad, calling for tighter sanctions against his government and designation of his military as a terrorist group.
The swift rebuke was a rare display of bipartisan cooperation in a Congress bitterly divided on the Iraq war. It reflected lawmakers' long-held nervousness surrounding Tehran's aggression in the region, particularly toward Israel - a sentiment fueled by the pro-Israeli lobby in Congress whose influence reaches across party lines.
