Colin Powell: Deal With Iran Is A ‘Pretty Good Deal’ (VIDEO)

September 6, 2015 10:42 a.m.

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell said Sunday that President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran is a “pretty good deal.”

“I think it is a good deal. I studied very carefully the outline of the deal and what’s in that deal. And I’ve also carefully looked at the opposition to the deal,” Powell told NBC’s Chuck Todd on “Meet The Press.” “And my judgement after balancing those two sets of information is that it’s a pretty good deal.”

Many of the Republican presidential candidates have voiced their opposition to the deal.

“I say, we have a deal, let’s see how they implement the deal. If they don’t implement it, bail out. None of our options are gone,” Powell told Todd.
