Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton says she would impose penalties on Iran, even for small violations of the new nuclear deal. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
STORY: Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton on Wednesday (September 9) said if she were U.S. president, she would impose penalties on Iran for even small violations of the new nuclear deal and would take military action if Iran tried to obtain a nuclear weapon. "We should anticipate that Iran will test the next president. They'll want to see how far they can bend the rules," Clinton said in a speech at a Washington think tank. "I'll hold the line against Iranian noncompliance. That means penalties even for small violations." The U.S. Congress is expected to begin voting this week on a Republican-led measure to block the deal struck in July between Iran and world powers who want to prevent Tehran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. But President Barack Obama has enough support in the U.S. Senate to prevent lawmakers from derailing the accord which they say is not strict enough.
