In this video, George Bush’s former Secretary of State comes out championing President Obama’s historical nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran, praising it as a good deal and solidly rejected the fearmongering and hyperbolic doomsday prophecies of his fellow Republicans:
“It’s a pretty good deal… I know there are objections to it, but here’s why I think it’s a good deal. One of the great concerns that the opposition has that we are leaving open a ‘lane’ for the Iranians to go back to creating a nuclear weapon in 10-15 years are forgetting the reality that they have been on a superhighway for the last ten years to create a nuclear weapon or nuclear weapons program with no speed limit.”
He then demonstrates just how much we really got from the deal, in contrast to the constant protestations from the right which falsely claim that the deal doesn’t go far enough to be effective:
