WaPo: Experts Look At Iran Nuke Deal

Looking at the morning papers and websites a very interesting story comes out of the Washington Post where Carol Morello and Karen DeYoung combined to pen an interesting story titled :” Nuclear deal with Iran scrutinized by experts.”

The diplomats who negotiated a nuclear deal with Iran always knew that if they succeeded, it would come under heavy scrutiny.

Four days after a deal was announced, it is becoming increasingly clear that they are getting what they bargained for. Since the agreement was announced Tuesday, much of the reaction has been critical and some downright hostile, as Republican presidential candidates, conservative pundits and even some U.S. allies in the Middle East have challenged what was achieved.

After nearly two years of intense, and largely secret, negotiations, the Obama administration has started a new phase of defending the deal that could determine whether Congress will approve it after a 60-day review.

As officials from President Obama on down publicly praise the accord and describe it as the best available alternative to war, behind the scenes, the administration is briefing nuclear and nonproliferation experts on its complex details in hopes that they will back it and share their views with skeptical lawmakers and the American public.

Political proponents and critics of the agreement are looking to these experts for help in understanding the strengths and vulnerabilities of a 109-page document that includes five highly technical annexes.
