Webb Campaign Press Release - Jim Webb on Iran: 'Wrong Time for an Agreement Like This'
Former Sen. Jim Webb of Virginia says it's the wrong time for a deal on Iran's nuclear program and that the situation of giving "tacit approval" for another country's eventual acquisition of nuclear weapons is unprecedented.
Mr. Webb, a 2016 Democratic presidential candidate, said he thinks the deal is something that "in detail" should have been put before Congress.
He also knocked "an approach that is just focusing on a nuclear agreement when we have to look at the balance of power in the region and the signals that have been sent in the region in terms of Iran's growing power."
