Congress Members: Don't Let Up on Iran


Republican members of Congress have called on the Obama administration not to let up on the sanctions on Tehran and to even increase them.

Republican Senator Mark Kirk said on Thursday that the sanctions should be increased to the highest level in order to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear bomb capability. He rejected the notion that the president-elect, Hassan Rowhani, is a moderate reformer and noted that he was hand-picked by Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.
