10 questions about Netanyahu's speech

(CNN)After Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's dramatic speech to Congress, CNN's Elise Labott took to Facebook to answer your questions.

1. How will Netanyahu's speech to Congress impact U.S. relations?
The level of animosity between the U.S and Israel is unprecedented. I think that the Prime Minister's blistering attack on President Obama's Iran policy is likely to deepen that rift even further.
    U.S. officials tell me the relationship is unlikely to improve much before the March 17 election. If Prime Minister Netanyahu wins the election, the U.S. will need to reengage. If he loses, the U.S. won't have to deal with him anymore.
    2. Did Netanyahu reveal any secrets that we were led to believe he might?
    No. In fact he really did not reveal any sensitive information that he received from the U.S. or other sources. In fact, he said that most of the elements of the deal were readily available at public sources and that you can even google them. Instead, he used a combination of intelligence and emotion to warn about the dangers he saw in this deal. That might work better for him than if he revealed sensitive information, which would antagonize the U.S. even more.
    3. What was President Obama's response?
    The President has said that Prime Minister Netanyahu did not offer an alternative to the deal except for no deal and military action. The President said the deal that's being discussed is the best way to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.
    4. Is it possible that Netanyahu wants the deal with Iran to go through as an excuse to attack Iran?
    The Prime Minister never said he was against any deal. He said he was against a deal that he thought would not put enough safeguards in place to prevent an Iranian nuclear weapon. He doesn't think that this deal does that. He did say today that Israel will "stand alone" if necessary, suggesting that Israel could take matters into its own hands. But its unclear whether Israel has the military capability to wipe out the Iranian nuclear program without U.S. help. And that seems unlikely with the U.S. in negotiations with Iran.
    5. Will we now have a parade of candidates from other countries during their campaigns?
    It's a good question. Although certainly Netanyahu and his supporters hope and believe that this speech will give him an election boost by stressing his Iranian credentials, Netanyahu probably would have done this speech anyway. He's been speaking about the threat posted by Iran for years. Could he have done it in a less provocative way? Probably, but I honestly don't think that Congress would extend the same courtesies to the leaders of many other allied countries.
    6. What have Netanyahu's political opponents in Israel said about what he is doing?
    All of his opponents share the threat posed by a nuclear Iran. Some of them think the Prime Minister is going about it the wrong way. And all of them have said he's doing serious damage to Israel's relationship to the U.S.
    7. Did the U.S. begin negotiating with Iran because sanctions were working or because Iran was getting closer to building a nuclear bomb?
    The U.S. believes that Iran came to the table and was ready to negotiate because sanctions were working. The Iranian economy has taken a serious hit as a result of these sanctions. President Rouhani was elected in part on his campaign pledge to end the sanctions. But, Iran does have its red lines that it is not willing to cross in order to strike a deal - particularly an Iranian enrichment program.
    8. Has the U.S. agreed to allow Iran to continue to enrich uranium as part of the negotiations?
    The U.S. and its partners in the talks have agreed to allow Iran to continue to enrich a certain amount of uranium to a low level as part of a deal, but that amount is far, far beyond what they started from. Years ago when the U.S. had started negotiating with Iran, the U.S. said Iran could keep no centrifuges to enrich uranium. Now they're talking about as many as 6,500 centrifuges. That's not insignificant, considering Iran currently has 19,500 of them.
    9. If Israel has nuclear power, what is wrong with Iran having it too?
    it is believed that Israel has nuclear weapons, but it has been deliberately vague about it's suspected program. Iran is a signatory to the nuclear non-proliferation treaty, but Israel is not.
    10. Do you think there is a possibility of Iran building Nuclear weapons even after the deal?
    They will be able to continue to enrich uranium. And although there will be curbs in place for the duration of the deal, once the deal expires in perhaps 10 years or so, all bets are off. I would say that the deal would slow Iran's ability to develop a nuclear weapon, but won't stop it in its tracks indefinitely.
