Two things necessary for responsible coverage of the #IranDeal today:
First: Pressing the president and his team on WHY break the agreement now? What about it, *specifically,* is a problem?
If the answer is "it's not permanent," then why not extend it, rather than kill it? 1//
If the answer is about missiles or other bad behavior, then "how does leaving the deal make [that thing] any better?" Ex, "Couldn't they build a bomb to put on those missiles now?" or "Isn't it harder to stop their destabilizing behavior if they have a nuke?" 2/?
