John Kerry, US Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew and US Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz were testifying on Tuesday before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on the nuclear agreement reached in Vienna between Iran and the P5+1 nations earlier this month.
Last week in front of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Kerry mounted a furious counter-attack against the deal’s detractors, saying it would be “fantasy” to think the US could simply “bomb away” Tehran’s atomic know-how.
In his opening statement, Kerry argued the Iran deal is “good” and accused critics of spreading false information about the agreement. He said the Islamic regime has agreed to limit its nuclear program and allow inspections of its facilities.
“If this deal is rejected, we immediately go back to the scenario I just described,” Kerry warned.
