IRAN: DFA says progressives right to be wary of WH deals post-TPA, but “deal with Iran is a good one
Earlier today, the six major world powers announced a historic agreement that will dramatically restrict Iran's nuclear program in exchange for the easing of economic sanctions.
Response from Democracy for America's spokesperson on the agreement with Iran:
"After the difficult fight over Fast Track authority for the job-killing Trans-Pacific Partnership, progressives have good reason to be wary of any massive international agreement that emerges from secret negotiations led by the White House.
"However, it's clear that this historic deal with Iran is a good one that will make our world safer by blocking every potential path Iran has to a nuclear weapon and keeping us out of yet another disastrous war of choice in the Middle East.
"Over the next sixty days, we will work with our allies to defend this precious chance for peace and urge every congressional Democrat not to cave to right-wing efforts to defeat this deal and launch our country back on the path to war." -- Neil Sroka, Communications Director, Democracy for America
As a part of its support for the deal, DFA has joined other progressive allies on the StopWarWithIran.com joint petition.
