McCain: We Should Put New Sanctions on Iran in Six Months if Deal Fails

by Alec Torres

Senator John McCain told CBS’s Bob Schieffer that he thinks the U.S. should impose more sanctions on Iran if a deal is not reached within six months.

“Six months is the operative,” McCain said, citing the fact that Iran still has centrifuges, is continuing heavy-water operations at Arak, and thinks that the current deal implicitly acknowledges their “right” to enrich — all of which, according to McCain, are unsatisfactory.
