Fierce opponents of the Obama administration’s negotiations with Iran have not been shy about drawing unflattering historical parallels, and one group is up with a new web ad that pulls no punches.

American Legacy PAC, a conservative group with a board of advisors that includes Bill Kristol and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, is up with a 30-second web ad that compares Barack Obama to British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, known for his policy of “appeasement” of Nazi Germany and Adolf Hitler.

The comparison has been made by other detractors, including Illinois GOP Sen. Mark Kirk of Illinois, who said on Thursday that “Neville Chamberlain got a lot of more out of Hitler” than U.S. negotiators got from Iran.
