In the Crossfire: A deal with Iran

Iran reaches nuclear deal with world leaders - now what? Is President Obama surrendering to Iran? Or will the deal slow the Iran's development of nuclear weapons?

In the Crossfire: Trita Parsi of the National Iranian American Council and Clifford May of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies.

Parsi, who supports the deal, and May, who opposes it, join Newt Gingrich and Van Jones at 6:30pET to make their case.

parsi may split

    You need the power of Socratic interviewing on Crossfire. See Jan Helfeld interview May on you tube and see the difference.

    One of the reasons I enjoy most Crossfires, is the respectful, considerate way ppl diametrically opposed to one another intelligently discuss subjects. I was so happy to see Stephanie Cutter was not a host tonight, but alas Mr Parsi interviened on her behalf. He took over her usual interruptions, talking over the conversants, taking over the conversation in an effort to keep the others from voicing their views, simply refusing to answer the questions put to them. POOF!! " I don't want to hear what the other side is saying, so I will just pretend I did not hear what they just said. LOL
    Mr Parsi was not well schooled on the details of this subject except to root for his home team, and say the US should basically let Iran do what they want or there will be a war.
    He used the tired democratic line, "Well, what do you have that's better??"
    I am shocked Iran has been ignoring the rules for so long. But what is worse – they, and those who support them say, "well don't even try to say we cannot have nuclear weapons. "Start your negotiations from that point." As if since they broke the rules and built these forbidden weapons, too bad now. We have them, and we are keeping them."
    It is lunacy .
    We need to find a way for everyone to adhere the agreement they all signed without either side threatening war.

    Too bad Van could not expose Clifford May like Jan did when he got him to say that Afghanistan attacked Russia! He also says Iraq attacked the USA first!

    The Iran deal was just a cop out by the US as usual. We did not gain a thing.They need to be stopped and facilities destroyed thats the only way to deal with these people.This is just a diversion for Obama to sidetrack people from Obama care.
