Senator Corker slams Kerry on Iran deal: You've been fleeced

July 23, 2015 17:40

Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman Senator Bob Corker issued harsh criticism of the Obama administration over the nuclear deal with Iran signed last week.

Speaking at the beginning of a Foreign Relations Committee meeting in which US Secretary of State John Kerry was set to testify, Corker said to Kerry, "Quite frankly, I think you've been fleeced."

Discussing what he called the "disdain" which the administration had shown for US allies in the region who have criticized the deal, Corker said that "if we had dealt with dismantling of their nuclear program they wouldn't be reacting as they did."

He said that the administration had crossed a new threshold in US foreign policy in which "a state sponsor of terrorism" was now given the capability to make nuclear weapons.
