Indiana Congressman Question Nuclear Agreement With Iran
Sen. Dan Coats, R-Indiana, says he is “profoundly skeptical” of the nuclear agreement announced Tuesday between Iran and a group of nations led by the U.S.
Sen. Coats, who serves on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, says he will carefully review the details of the deal before rendering a final opinion.
He says the Iran agreement reminds him of a deal President Clinton made with North Korea, which ultimately resulted in that country obtaining nuclear weapons.
“I don’t want to see that same thing happen to Iran and so the words of the president don’t reassure me in saying, ‘Trust me, everything’s going to be good. And by the way, I’m going to veto it if you don’t agree.’ That is not leadership,” Coats says.
Former Congressman Lee Hamilton, D-Indiana, says while the deal might not be perfect, it’s better than no deal at all.
