The Iran Project has just published a new briefing book, “Weighing Concerns and Assurances About a Nuclear Agreement with Iran.” We hope it will serve as a reference guide for the American people, policymakers, legislators, staffs, the media, and the public. It is intended to encourage a bipartisan discussion on the nuclear agreement with Iran, and assess whether any of the serious concerns should be deal-breakers.
