Our attention should remain riveted on President Obama’s deal in process with Iran. It will put Iran on a path to the development of nuclear weapons to be mounted on Iran’s intercontinental ballistic missiles. It will undo the sanctions regime intended to prevent this outcome.

It is an agreement, as a famous man once said, “the consequences of which will travel far with us along our road.”
