“This deal is a catastrophe from the perspective of American national security interests…The Iranians continue to cheat, even on the interim agreement, and it’s simply a fact that some of the most worrisome aspects about their nuclear work, their weaponization activity, their ballistic missile program to deliver the nuclear weapons, were not part of the interim agreement and are not going to be part of any final agreement.”

“People are not willing to look at the facts of this, to look at the circumstances of Iran’s conduct these past 30 years and to believe, almost as if it’s a fairly tale, that this agreement is one they’ll comply with when they haven’t complied with any other commitment they’ve made on the nuclear side going right back to the time they became a party to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.”
Bolton thinks that instead of trying to block the agreement from moving forward in the Senate, Republicans should focus on pointing out specific points they object to.MORE NEWS: 2 Mothers, Babies Rushed To Hospital After Being Rescued From Burning Frankford Apartment Building, Officials Say
“I think the President’s probably got the political situation in this country sized up. If I were a Senator, I wouldn’t be focusing on whether I get to approve the treaty, I’d be dissecting, day by day, every single thing that’s wrong with it because it’s so filled with flaws.”
