Ex-US Diplomats: No Fatal Flaws in Nuclear Pact

Seven former US diplomats and State Department officials sent a letter Monday to leaders in Congress urging them to support the nuclear deal with Iran.
Those for and against the international agreement with Iran to place temporary constraints on its nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief are engaged in a verbal battle to lobby lawmakers. Congress has until September 17 to review the deal, vote to approve or disapprove of the agreement or take no action.
The views of those opposed align with statements by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who staunchly opposes the deal.
Former ambassadors to Israel — James Cunningham, William Harrop, Daniel Kurtzer, Thomas Pickering and Edward Walker Jr. — signed the letter as has R. Nicholas Burns, former undersecretary of state for political affairs and ambassador to NATO, and Frank Wisner, former undersecretary of state for international security affairs and undersecretary of defense for policy, the AP reported.
“No agreement between multiple parties can be perfect or without risks,” the letter states. “We believe that without this agreement, however, the risks will be much higher for the United States and Israel. We see no fatal flaws that should call for the rejection of this agreement and have not heard any viable alternatives from those who oppose the implementation (of the deal).”
Obama administration officials have made numerous appearances on Capitol Hill to brief lawmakers and convince them to approve the agreement.
