Dick Cheney: The (mad) deal with Iran

Vice President Cheney spoke at the American Enterprise Institute on the Iran deal yesterday. AEI has posted the video along with a brief summary here; I have posted the video below. The speech is about 35 minutes long followed by 10 minutes of questions and answers.

Cheney’s speech provides a compelling critique of the deal tying together numerous threads against it, several drawn from previous statements made by President Obama himself and from Secretary Kerry. Arming and funding Iran “is not an act of peace, is not — as the president claims — the only alternative to war. It is madness,” he argues.

Code Pink supports the deal; a representative of the group makes an unscheduled appearance briefly disrupting the speech at 10:45. You can understand why they would prefer Cheney not be heard.
