Breaking down the new Iran deal

The United States, China, Russia, France, United Kingdom, Germany and Iran have reached a comprehensive deal to curb Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for the easing of international sanctions. The deal still needs approval from the U.S. Congress. President Obama called today’s agreement a step toward a "more hopeful world." We’ll talk about the significance of the deal and the road ahead with Trita Parsi, president of the National Iranian American Council. Steve Clemons, Washington editor-at-large for The Atlantic weighs in on the Congressional review process and David Cortright, associate director of policy studies at the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies at the University of Notre Dame also joins us. He’s an expert on sanctions. (Photo: Flickr/United States Mission Geneva)
