Nuclear Deal Fallout: The Global Threat of Iran
Congressional Testimony - May 24, 2017
 

Chairman Poe, Ranking Member Keating, distinguished members of the Subcommittee:

It is a privilege to appear before you today to discuss the strategic effects of the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and the P5+1 powers, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). More than a year after its implementation, the effects of that agreement have been profound - and profoundly negative for the stability of the Middle East, as well as for American interests there.
