Iran nuclear deal stinks [Letter]

IranU.S. Congress

We provided North Korea with the technology and materials to build nuclear plants for energy only, they promised not to build a bomb. They have tested seven bombs and have more. Now they are building ICBMs.

Now, Iran says if we lift some sanctions, they will talk to the U.N. about not trying to make bombs. After top secret talks between the U.S. and Iran, the Obama administration went public with planned talks with the U.N. and Iran. The reason our talks were secret is we haven't had normal relations since they stormed our embassy and held our citizens hostage for 444 days.

This deal stinks, but it took Obamacare off the talk shows and front pages, and throws a bone to a religion close to the president's heart ("The nuclear deal with Iran," Nov. 25).

Congress can stop this if our representatives forget party and vote American.

Dan Shannahan, Fullerton
