Cheney on Iran Deal: Closest We've Been to Nuclear War Since WWII
Former Vice President Dick Cheney said on "Hannity" tonight that the Iranian nuclear agreement brings the world closer to the actual use of nuclear weapons.
Cheney said that President Obama's claim that the deal has stopped the proliferation of nuclear weapons is a lie.
He explained that Iran is now on the road to getting a nuke. Whether that takes months or years, it will motivate other countries in the region to get their own nuclear weapons, setting off a potentially disastrous arms race.
"That will, in fact, put us closer to the actual use of nuclear weapons than we've been at any time since Hiroshima and Nagasaki in World War II," Cheney said.
He added that President Obama's actions will lead to strained relationships with U.S. allies in the Middle East, such as Israel and Saudi Arabia.
"He's not a man of his word. He's not a man who can be trusted," Cheney said. "And I think our allies who find their very survival at question here, there isn't any way they're going to rely upon Barack Obama for safety and security. They're going to get their own."
