Jimmy Carter Likes Iran Deal

Former President Jimmy Carter says the Iran deal is a good one and on this, at least, we can trust the Iranians.

Speaking with WABE on Wednesday Carter gave Secretary of State John Kerry high marks:

“I have complete confidence in John Kerry and his ability as a negotiator,” Carter said to [WABE’s Dennis] O’Hayer.

“I‘ve known him for 30 years … He’s one of the finest secretaries of state we’ve ever had.”

The humanitarian said he doesn’t have any doubts that there are adequate safeguards built into the nuclear agreement to ensure Iran sticks to its end of the deal. And he said he believes the Iranians will abide by it.

“They’ve lived up to things in which I’ve negotiated with them. … They kept their agreement completely when it was made.”

Carter was originally supposed to discuss his 30th (!) book, and what I would assume is memoir number five or six.
