Obama on Iran Deal: A House Under Contract, Awaiting “Appraisal,” “Inspector” (NPR)

In an interview with NPR’s Steve Inskeep, President Obama defended a nuclear deal with Iran, calling it “the right thing to do for the United States” and for “world peace.” Obama argued that it would succeed whether Iran’s government reforms itself or not. He defended it even though the details have yet to be agreed upon. And he pushed back on critics, saying Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was making a “fundamental misjudgment,” and advising presidential contender Scott Walker to take “some time to bone up on foreign policy.”
