Krauthammer’s Take: Iranian Negotiations Are ‘Simply Catastrophic’

On Tuesday’s Special Report, Charles Krauthammer said the United States’ ongoing negotiations with Iran are misguided and make President Obama’s other foreign policy blunders look favorable by comparison.

“This [deal] will mean a lifting of the sanctions, so Iran will be with a very strong economy, undeterred, nothing in any way holding it back; it’s simply catastrophic,” Krauthammer said. “It is an unbelievably bad deal. It makes the Cuba deal look like a really good bargain.”

Krauthammer explained that he thinks the United States is negotiating from a place of weakness, which has shifted the Obama administration’s original objective of stopping the Iranian nuclear program. He added that if this deal goes as poorly as he expects, it could allow Iran to become a “legitimate nuclear power.”
