Nuclear negotiations with Iran extended for seven months

Just hours before the deadline, negotiators working to curb Iran’s nuclear program announced that the talks would be extended for another seven months. Some officials have said they hope to reach an agreement by March. Trita Parsi, president of the National Iranian American Council, has been in Vienna for the talks. He joins us to talk about today’s decision. Joseph Cirincione, president of Ploughshares Fund, a global security foundation, weighs in as well. He’ll tell us whether he thinks a deal in the future is likely.
