Former Secretary of State Colin Powell: JCPOA with Iran is “a good deal”

From the September 6th, 2015 episode of NBC’s Meet the Press….

NBC’S CHUCK TODD: General Powell, welcome back to Meet the Press.

COLIN POWELL: Good morning, Chuck, good to be back.

NBC’S CHUCK TODD: Appearance number thirty-three, let’s start right with Iran. Is this a good deal?

COLIN POWELL: 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. And my judgment, after balancing those two sets of information is that it’s a pretty good deal.
