The Secrets In The Iran Deal That Congress Is Not Allowed To See

The nuclear agreement with Iran has been drawing a lot of scorn and ridicule since it’s agreement without Congressional approval.  The overwhelming majority of Republicans and even some Democrats have raised serious concerns about the Iran deal.  But the concern doesn’t stop there.

According to Fox News, there are “side deals” between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) that Congress has not been privy too.  Needless to say, Congress has not been happy about being kept in the dark.

House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell requested that President Obama make the agreements available to Congress so that they can be reviewed. 

"We request you transmit these two side agreements to Congress immediately so we may perform our duty to assess the many important questions related to the JCPOA [Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action]," they wrote.

Understandably, Congress feels left in the dark: The letter to Obama continued, "Failure to produce these two side agreements leaves Congress blind on critical information regarding Iran's potential path to being a nuclear power and will have detrimental consequences for the ability of members to assess the JCPOA."

This area of distrust is in addition to the numerous areas of disagreement in the already known parts of the Iran deal, namely that the deal will not make America any safer, America is $150 Billion dollars in the hole, and American citizens still languish in Iranian captivity.

What do you think?  Is Congress right to be upset about the secret side deals?
