Since it was announced in January, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress has been highly controversial. The planning of the speech did not follow normal diplomatic protocols, and left the White House out of the loop.

Netanyahu's supporters said it was imperative to give the speech due to the nature of the Iranian nuclear threat.
