Israel, he said, will warn Congress that “within 10 years, Iran will have a short nuclear breakout time, and until then it’ll continue funding terrorism using the billions it’ll get.”
But members of Congress, who have 60 days to review the deal before voting on it, have yet to be given any details on the agreement.
Jewish Senator Ben Cardin, the senior Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee who criticized the emerging nuclear deal, said he must read the agreement before he could decide how to vote.
“The devil is in the details,” Cardin told CNN.
“We still don’t know exactly about the inspection regimes. That’s going to be a very important part for many members of Congress. We’ve heard about arms embargo issues. We need to know how that has been resolved. The sanctions relief is also a matter of incredible importance, what research Iran will be permitted to do. So there’s a lot of questions I think members of Congress want to know the details before they decide whether they can support or not this agreement,” Cardin said.
