Iran nuclear agreement presents Obama with promise and peril

President Obama speaks about the framework agreement on Iran's nuclear program during a statement in the Rose Garden of the White House in WashingtonBy Matt Spetalnick WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Barack Obama still faces a formidable task in preventing a skeptical Congress from sabotaging a nuclear pact with Iran and keeping talks from collapsing over the fine print, despite achieving a surprisingly detailed initial agreement that he hailed as “historic.” While major world powers and Iran made genuine progress in reaching a broad agreement in Switzerland on Thursday, the real test looms at the end of June when the deal must be finalized. “This is an encouraging development, but of course the devil lies in working out the details,” said Edwin Lyman of the Washington-based Union of Concerned Scientists, a nonprofit group that is typically highly critical of nuclear power.
