President Obama was having a press conference on the recent nuclear deal with Iran. He is aggressively defending the bill, as he should, because it’s an excellent deal that avoids war and stops Iran’s nuclear program. CBS reporter Major Garrett decided to insert a poorly-thought-out political dig into his question. Obama wasn’t having it. Cenk Uygur hosts The Young Turks. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
"Today's Q&A became tense for a few minutes after CBS' Chief White House correspondent Major Garrett asked his questions after a particularly pointed statement insinuating that President Obama was "content to abandon" American prisoners held by Iran while the President "celebrates" the Iran deal. Garrett also stated that President Obama left the joint chiefs of staff "hanging out to dry" regarding arms trading in the Iran deal.
President Obama called out Garretts' framing of the issue on each point, saying, "You should know better than that". The President then went on to address why the prisoners weren't linked to the negotiations and the relevant parts of the arms deal in regards to the broader comprehensive nuclear agreement.”*
