On July 14, the U.S. and its international negotiating partners finalized a strong, verifiable agreement to prevent a nuclear-armed Iran. Tough and principled diplomacy resulted in a very good deal that will block any pathway Iran might have to a nuclear weapon for many years to come.
But now it is in the hands of Congress.
Earlier this year, Congress passed legislation that gives it 60 days to review the deal. Unlike the 165 Republicans who opposed the accord before it was even submitted to Congress, other lawmakers ought to closely examine the deal. In doing so, they should rely on arms control and nuclear nonproliferation experts.
