listened to the briefings. he lists three reasons for not going for the deal. he doesn't feel inspections are sufficient. not anytime, anywhere. it could take 24 days to gain access. also 10 to 15 years down the road, iran would be a threshold nuclear state. >> then the non nuclear parts. iran will get all sorts of money once the sanctions are lifted and they will use too much of that money, in my judgment, to create real problems in the middle east. they will fund hezbollah and houthis in yemen. they will use it to build an icbm. they have enough missiles to reach israel and europe. >> reporter: schumer says the only alternative is the eventual war with iran. why not go back and try to get a better deal. president obama acknowledged in
1:09 am
any negotiation, especially this one, either side was not going to get everything they want. the white house could not see this more differently than schumer. the white house insists it is the best deal possible. and 10 to 15 years down the road if iran tried to break out and build a nuclear bomb, that would be longer than it is today. the u.s. would be able to detect that and respond. >> thank you, michelle. the white house did get good news on monday. brian schatz of hawaii will back the deal. he is the 16th senator to do that. the senate votes in mid-september. a study kept secret by the federal government for four years. the nation's air traffic controllers are dangerously sleepy. the associated press obtained a copy of the study which blamed long work hours that endangers the safety of the national air traffic system.
