Leon Panetta: Trump Should Be Very Careful About Getting Rid of Iran Deal
BLITZER" "Yesterday President Trump, at the U.N., the U.N. General assembly, called the Iran nuclear deal an embarrassment to the United States. He said it was awful. Today he said he has actually decide what to do about it but he won't announce that decision, at least not yet. What would the consequences of breaking that agreement, walking away for that agreement be for the United States?"
PANETTA: "Well, I would hope that the president, particularly his national security team, are very careful about taking a step of throwing that agreement out the window. Look, there are a lot of concerns about that agreement. That's understandable. But the fact is we do have an agreement, and it has been effective at preventing Iran from developing a nuclear weapon. As a matter of fact, we have evidence that Iran has abided by that agreement. If the president of the united States decides to get rid of that agreement, then I think he has to think seriously about the fact that at some point down the road he will bare responsibility for Iran getting a nuclear weapon. It will be his responsibility if they get that capability."
