Cotton denounces Iran nuclear deal
WASHINGTON — A general agreement announced Thursday by the United States and other world powers to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons was sharply criticized by Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., who has emerged as a leading critic of President Barack Obama’s foreign policy strategies.
“There is no nuclear deal or framework with Iran; there is only a list of dangerous U.S. concessions that will put Iran on the path to nuclear weapons,” Cotton said in a press statement.
The freshman senator has insisted that the Obama administration was too eager to strike any deal with Iran rather than force a hard bargain that would ensure Iran would never be able to obtain a nuclear weapon. He has appeared recently on multiple national cable news programs to criticize the negotiations.
