Clapper: Iranian Compliance on Nuke Deal a ‘Big Assumption’


Monday on  MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said it is a “big assumption” to think the Iranians will comply with the restrictions and inspections in the nuclear deal recently announced by the Obama administration.

Clapper said, “Well, I will say this about the deal, the joint comprehensive plan of action, is that from an intelligence perspective it puts us, assuming Iranian compliance, a big assumption, but if they do comply it puts us in a much better place to observe the entire industrial infrastructure of the Iranian nuclear capability then we are today without it.”
