Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu arrived in Washington on Sunday for a "historic" quest to stop an international nuclear deal with Iran sought by the United States. "We know a great deal about the emerging agreement," a member of Netanyahu's entourage said on condition of anonymity. He would not indicate the source of the "excellent information" Israelis have about the deal, saying only that Netanyahu would elaborate when he addresses US lawmakers on Tuesday.
