Eric Cantor Calls Iran Nuclear Deal 'Dangerous'

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) — House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is assailing the new nuclear deal with Iran, saying he believes it "bodes very, very ominously for the region and U.S. security."

The Virginia Republican calls the arrangement "dangerous" and says it brings Iran "closer to becoming a nuclear power."

The accommodation announced Sunday gives Tehran six months to increase access to its nuclear sites in exchange for keeping the central elements of its uranium program. Cantor tells "CBS This Morning" Monday that the terms are softer than those already in several U.N. resolutions. In a twist on a famous Ronald Reagan statement about arms control, Cantor says the attitude toward Iran should be "mistrust and verify." Reagan famously said he favored arms pacts with the Soviet Union if there was a "trust-but-verify" standard.
