Diplomacy works: Iran nuclear deal holds

Today is the second anniversary of the Iran nuclear agreement, which "successfully blocked every pathway Iran had to a nuclear weapon," according to former Secretary of State John Kerry, who spent four years working toward this goal with the full support and initiative of then President Barack Obama and the other countries involved.

Kerry goes further:  "We demanded that Iran meet tough, verifiable obligations, and they are complying -- as even the new administration, as well as the International Atomic Energy Agency has acknowledged.   They've shipped out more than 98% of their enriched uranium, shut down two-thirds of their centrifuges, permanently disabled their heavy water reactor, and abided by unprecedented verification procedures."
