    A crowd of protesters chanted “Try Bibi for war crimes,” as Benjamin Netanyahu’s limousine pulled up to the White House Monday. The Israeli prime minister is in Washington to urge President Obama to take a tougher stance against Iran over its nuclear program. Though Obama said he was optimistic following his phone call with Iran’s newly elected President Hassan Rouhani that a “resolution” to Iran’s dispute with the West is attainable, Netanyahu is more skeptical and has warned Obama not to be wary of Iranian “sweet talk.” Bibi is expected to insist that any diplomatic solution to the standoff between Iran and the West include the demand that Iran dismantle its nuclear weapons program.
