(Worthy News) - Enforcing President Obama's nuclear deal with Iran will greatly expand the work of the U.N.'s nuclear watchdog and put it in a political spotlight that rivals, if not exceeds, the run-up to the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq.

For months, lawmakers and former nuclear inspectors have expressed concerns that the International Atomic Energy Agency's integrity and independence would be hurt by the pressure of policing Iran's compliance with a deal in which the world's most powerful countries have placed so much hope. Those concerns have been reinforced in the wake of reports that the agency may be willing to place an unprecedented level of trust in Iran's integrity.

"From what we can tell, this inspection arrangement with Iran is far from established practice. It is far from routine, as the Obama administration claims. And it is very far from what we should find acceptable in an agreement so central to our security," said Rep. Ed Royce, R-Calif., chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. [ Source ]
