Lawmakers concerned over Iranian enrichment, split on more sanctions

CNN's Dana Davidsen

After President Barack Obama said he would accept a peaceful nuclear program from Iran, including modest uranium enrichment, U.S. congressmen on the Homeland Security and Intelligence committees agreed Sunday that the concession complicates further negotiations.

"We can envision a comprehensive agreement that involves extraordinary constraints and verification mechanisms and intrusive inspections but permits Iran to have a peaceful nuclear program," Obama said Saturday at the Brookings Institution's Saban Forum in Washington.

    Really, what does the average congressman or citizen know about the nuclear programs of various nations? At least the President has the technical and intelligence experts from both the US and its allies who work in the industry as well as our military to give him facts to make rational decisions. Most of the congressional verbiage is strictly political posturing with no hard facts included.

    Iran is cooperating peacefully? Better start a war in order to cover it up.

    IRAN WENT BEHIND OUR BACK AND MADE A DEAL WITH AFGHANISTAN BUT WE KNOW IRAN CAN BE TRUSTED??? obamakerry is now dumb and dumber-it took years and years to get all the sanction in place and just to look good obamakerry is willing to give into this terrorist state. THEY HAVE OPENLY SAID THEY WILL DESTROY THE UNITED STATES AND ISRAEL-and obamakerry wants a deal???? and they won't lie just like obamakerry won't lie. WHY WON'T CNN REPORT ON THE IRAN/AFGHANISTAN PACK????? wonder why??? could it be obama hasn't called them yet to tell them what to do or is it obama hasn't found out yet about this agreement-he has not read his morning paper.

    At the very least we are going to learn a lot from getting intel feeds from the inspectors. If they want to be part of the NPT then they need to abide by the rules.

    By my count they have already broken a few commitments, not to install more centrifuges, not to continue work on the reactor. Exactly how long do we wait , and why are more sanctions that clearly havent worked since they are not complying already, our first choice.

    Insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results.

    By this definition our leaders are indeed insane.
