Why Arab allies are worried over the Iran nuclear deal

CBS News

While many believe a more transparent Iran will reduce tensions in the Middle East, CBS News correspondent Charlie D'Agata says some of the nations within reaching distance of the Islamic Republic don't buy that the nuclear deal reached Tuesday will stop Iran from building an atomic bomb, and they worry and the country's massive financial windfall could tip a delicate power balance.

We're Going with the Ayatollah on this One

President Obama believes that the nuclear “framework” concluded Friday in Switzerland is a historic achievement. Iran’s foreign minister, Javad Zarif, says he believes the same.

Mark Hensch, The Hill

Former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton, often mentioned as a longshot Republican presidential candidate, said Saturday that President Obama is negotiating “an unprecedented act of surrender” with Iran in discussions over its nuclear weapons program. “This deal is fundamentally flawed,” Bolton said at the South Carolina National Security Action Summit in West Columbia, S.C. “There really is no deal I’d trust Iran with. It is a regime determined to have nuclear weapons and this deal will give it to them.”

Greta Starts Out Right Ends Up Wrong On GOP Iran Letter

Greta got it wrong last night when Alaska’s newly elected Senator Dan Sullivan appeared on her FOX News program to explain why he and some 46 other members of the Senate wrote an open letter to Iran's leaders stating that any nuclear deal needs congressional approval in order to last beyond President Obama's term.
