Politifact deemed Sen. Ted Cruz’s claim that the Iran Deal will “facilitate and accelerate” Iran’s acquisition of a nuclear weapon as false:
“The Iran deal may be less than perfect, but experts say it’s hard to see how implementing the agreement — rather than doing nothing at all — would actually “facilitate and accelerate” an Iranian nuclear weapon. The worst-case scenario would be that the deal throws up a couple years’ worth of roadblocks that would not exist otherwise. We rate the claim False.”
