7:00 am
up there? >> up up up. and the weekend will be nice. >> yes. thank you very much. happening right now on "today in the bay." >> we'll be back with you with more local news updates at 7:25. good morning, deal or no deal. republicans vow an all-out battle to stop the president's unprecedented nuclear agreement with iran. >> they made a worse deal than even we had feared. >> you know the iranians are going to cheat. >> this morning one of the most vocal critics republican candidate lindsey graham, why it calls it a nightmare. new video showing the exact moment el chapo escaped as nbc news goes inside the elaborate tunnel. disciplined in a rare more. the faa puts new restrictions on sky west airlines after a plane packed with passengers stalls
7:01 am
mid flight dropping more than 12,000 featset. and courage controversy. the special honor being awarded to kaitlyn jenner and why some say it's undeserved. this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie, live from rockefeller plaza. >> welcome to "today" on a wednesday morning. we have willie in for matt. the very moment that el chapo disappeared. >> here it is, inside the prison cell, makes his way to the shower and disappears through a hole in the floor going through that tunnel we've been talking about all week, that elaborate tunnel with a train system inside. we'll go in the tunnel with mark potter. >> why wasn't anyone watching that video at that exact moment. now the question is will they ever find him? more on that in a moment.
7:02 am
we have a top story first. president obama is facing a tough sell over the deal that he says will prevent iran from building a nuclear bomb. we're going to talk about all of this with u.s. senator and presidential candidate lindsey graham in just a moment but first the national correspondent peter alexander at the white house with the details. good morning to you. >> savannah, good morning to you, now the congressional sales pitch of this iran deal begins. this morning vice president joe biden will meet with house democrats. they are key to ensuring the republicans don't kill the agreement. already republican 2016 candidates and lindsey graham is is there, attacked the deal, calling it naive and one of america's worst diplomatic failures. iran the latest flash point to the race for the white house with pld obama defending the agreement in a new interview with the "new york times." >> we have cut off every pathway for iran to develop a nuclear weapon.
7:03 am
>> just as soon as the ink dried hillary clinton, now the democratic front-runner, announced her support with a note of caution, releasing a statement, i'm still studying the details but based on briefings i received and review of the documents, i support the agreement because it can help us prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon. congress has 60 days so review the deal with republican candidates aren't holding their fire, blasting the agreement at every turn. >> we need a president who will terminate that bad deal with iran on day one. >> we have created legitimized iran being a nuclear threshold country and that in and of itself creates huge instability in the region. >> this is the most dangerous, irresponsible step i've ever seen in the history of watching the middle east. >> you know the iranians are going to cheat. >> a group backing marco rubio released this ad urging congressional republicans to
7:04 am
kill the deal. >> lessons of history are either confronted or defeated or it grows and it spreads. >> reporter: the landmark agreement would lift hundreds and billions of dollars of economic sanctions on iran, only if iran meets the following requirements, limits to nuclear program for ten years and to nuclear research for 15. and granting more access to u.n. inspectors at suspect sites but with notice. >> a legacy defining deal for president obama that could also define much of the 2016 campaign. >> as we said now it's in the hands of congress but even senate republican leader mitch mcconnell admitted blocking this agreement will be very hard. even if the gop controlled house and senate rejected president obama's already said he will veto that bill. to override a veto, it would take all republicans plus 13 snas and 34 house democrats and right now that looks like a really big long shot. >> high hurdle for sure.
7:05 am
let's talk more about this with republican candidate lindsey graham. he opposes this deal. good morning. >> good morning. >> diplomats will tell sign of a good deal is nobody is happy. do you think the iranians look too happy this morning. >> when the iranians tell you this is a win-win, it's probably not. my biggest problem is we're taking the largest state sponsor of terrorism, people who overran our embassy and killed hundreds of americans and given them billions of dollars and they can use the money any way they would like. might as well right a check to assad, hezbollah and hamas, that's where the money is going. we'll give them more weapons regardless if they change their behavior. we took a very dismantled approach to the nuclear program and ensured they are on a path to become a member of the nuclear club and arabs will get their own weapon and creating a nuclear arms race and using the largest state sponsor of terrorism.
7:06 am
>> yesterday it was said opponents proposed no viable alternative. you said we should have kept the interim deal and wait for next president. what do you think that a president lindsey graham would have any more luck than president obama with iran? >> i would tell the iranians you're not going to get a penny as long as you're the state sponsor of terrorism and not going to lift the arms embargo until you stop toppling your neighbors and make sure you would never leave inspections -- take inspections away as long as they were the largest state sponsor of terrorism. >> secretary kerry says that sounds good but it's fantasy. you look at someone like ronald reagan, did a nuclear deal with soviets -- >> the fantasy is to believe the a i can'tya >> the fantasy is to believe the a i can'tyatollah was building a power plant not a bomb. a fantasy is to believe that when they charnt death to israel they are just kidding. this is the 70th anniversary of
7:07 am
the end of world war ii where the jewish people were almost wiped out. you've given the chief an tag nits a pathway to a nuclear weapon and putting us at risk. this is a terrible deal. anybody could have done better. and you have taken a can of gasoline and thrown it on a fire as far as i'm concerned. >> senator graham, you and colleagues have 60 days to review the build. any measure you take to eliminate this deal could be vetoed. are you going to get democrats on board? you know democrats will go against the president? >> number one, eight years from now they can build the largest missile they would like to build without any consequence. i'm going to introduce legislation with democrats to put sanctions on their missile program saying they can't get new technology until they stop becoming the largest state sponsor of terrorism. i think there are a lot of democrats who say they support israel. this is your chance. because when they say death to israel, i think they
7:08 am
literally -- you're about to give them the camability to enact it. i do believe this is a destabilizing event in world history and the more you know about this deal when the arabs build their own weapon, and they will, a lot of members of congress will say i don't want my fingerprints on that. >> we've got to ask you about presidential politics. donald trump is a atop the polls, even betting jeb bush, the front-runner in the most recent one. what does that say about your party? >> i think he's riding a wave of outlandish behavior, that there's some people in the republican party that like hearing that all of the illegal immigrants for the most part are rapists and drug dealers and some may be good. i think the overwhelming majority of republicans don't hike that rhetoric. i think he's riding a wave. if you ask me is this man ready to be commander in chief? absolutely not. he's going to charge the mexican government $100,000 for every immigrant that comes across the border. we live in the most complicated
7:09 am
dangerous times in the world. he's a wrecking ball when it comes to policy and the way he's engaged the public is hurting the republican party at a time where the chance to do better. >> lindsey graham, always good to get your straight talk. thank you so much. one other note on this, we'll hear more from president obama about this deal. he holds a news conference at the white house later today and nbc will have live coverage, 1:00 eastern on most of these stations. >> we're now getting our first look at surveillance video showing the moment mexican drug lord el chapo escaped from prison. mark potter is in mexico where he was allowed inside the elaborate tunnel used in that escape. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, willie. that tunnel connects from the prison behind me from a house about a mile away in that direction. when we went inside the tunnel, we were really struck by how well constructed it is and how much work went into it. it is a professional job and allowed chapo guzman to ride out
7:10 am
of jail. >> this video released by the mexican government shows chapo guzman on a security camera in his cell on saturday, the night he escaped just before 9:00 p.m. he can be seen pacing, going in and out of the shower stall where the tunnel entrance is. finally he bends down and goes out of the camera's view and disappears. tuesday mexican authorities recorded video of the tunnel entrance and then went into the tunnel itself where an old motorcycle with a cart can be seen on a set of tracks. mexican officials tell nbc news, chapo laid on that cart and was pulled through the tunnel carrying the drug lord to this house a mile away. >> what's most impressive how well it is built. there are steel beams and wood, electricity. this is a generator to run all of the lights we're told. this is an electrical panel. if you look over here, this is the equipment that's used to bring the mud up. and over here, more equipment
7:11 am
and then over here is the main tunnel -- main shaft going down to the tunnel heading over towards the prison. following his escape, the chicago crime commission named guzman public enemy number one. >> with a very powerful drug leader like chapo guzman, when they are repatriated with their cartel, oftentimes there is hell to pay. >> guzman cartel dominates the drug trade in the u.s. u.s. officials say it reaches from western mexico into more than a thousand cities, distributing heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana. now he could be overseeing day to day operations. >> it's tremendously significant to the united states and our safety and well being. >> reporter: many blame the cartel more much of the current heroin epidemic, one more reason he is considered most wanted on both sides of the u.s./mexican border.
7:12 am
>> incredible to see el chapo casually step through the hole in the door to freedom rngts the faa is taking action against sky west airlines, one of the bigger regional airlines after what the faa says was a close call. a crew stalling the plane mid flight with passengers on board. tom costello covers aviation for us. we find him at reagan national this morning. tom, good morning. >> reporter: hi, savannah, sky west flies as regional airline for american and united express. this flight occurred on april 23rd. it was flight 6367, flying from denver to oklahoma city. the faa says the crew allowed the plane's air speed to drop too low, stalling the plane. the plane dropped from 39,000 feet down to 27,000 feet. the crew then managed to restart the engines and the plane landed safely in oklahoma city. now the faa is ordering maximum
7:13 am
altitudes and minimum air speeds for sky west flying these crj regional planes. the minimum indicated air speed is going to be 272 miles per hour for a crj-200 and 288 miles per hour for the crj-700 and 900. if a pilot allows his or her plane to fly too low and for the speed to drop too low, the plane can quickly stall and they can lose altitude. however, sky west tells nbc news, this was an isolated incident and did not meet the true definition of a stall. skywest says in a statement, the aircraft's slow air speed alert system functioned perfectly and air crew responded appropriately with a 4,000 foot descent. it says it voluntarily told the faa about the incident and finds the actions arbitrary. it did immediately order retraining for all of the crew members and says sky west
7:14 am
considers the safety of the passengers the number one priority. back to you. >> sounds like they have to agree to disagree. thank you very much. >> natalie is here with an important day at a trial we've been following. >> it's been 11 weeks of testimony in colorado and jury deliberations begin today in the colorado theater shooting trial. james holmes accused of killing 12 people and injuring 70 others in a shooting spree at a movie theater back in 2012, defense attorneys want a verdict of not guilty by reason of insanity. prosecutors say holmes was legally sane when he went on a shooting spree and should be convicted of murder and executed. the 94-year-old former ss sarnlg ent who served at auschwitz has been convicted of 300,000 counts of accessory to murtd, known as accountant of auschwitz has testified that he guarded prisoners baggage after they arrived and collected money

news conference later today, expecting to face some questions about this nuclear agreement with iran. congress has 60 days to review it. house speaker john boehner already vowing to fight what he calls a bad deal. and after nearly three months of testimony, jury deliberations get under way this morning at the trial of accused colorado movie theater shooter james holmes. he's pled not guilty by reason of insanity to the 2012 attack that killed 12 people and injured 70 others. and coming up the honor being given to caitlyn jenner tonight and why some are praising it while others say it's a bad idea. but first, surprising new claims against seaworld. peta is accusing a theme park employee of masquerading as an animal rights activist for years to gather information on the animal rights group. nbc's gabe gutierrez has more on this story. gabe, good morning. >> reporter: willie good morning. it's no secret that seaworld and people for the ethical treatment of animals have butted heads for decades, but now the battle's intensify intensifying each accusing the
7:32 am
other side of spying. this morning, seaworld faces a possible pr backlash after a whale of a claim. peta says a seaworld employee posed as an animal rights activist and infiltrated protests for years. >> we came to discover that what appears to be a case of corporate easy naj onespionage on the part of seaworld. they placed someone to act like an activist in san diego. >> reporter: peta provided these pictures. according to the group, a man identifying himself as thomas jones protested against seaworld posted incendiary tweets and was each hauledven hauled away by police during a demonstration. but peta says his real name is paul macomb and he's worked for seaworld since 2008. nbc's repeated attempts to reach him were unsuccessful. in a written statement, seaworld says it "does not comment on our security operations," but accuses animal rights activists of doing the same thing, trying to gain employment at places like seaworld and growing
7:33 am
increasingly extreme in their rhetoric and tactics. since the release of the documentary "blackfish," which argues against keeping killer whales in captivity, industry reports show seaworld attendance has dropped. still, if peta's claims are true it's not clear why one of seaworld's employees would pose as an activist or even what the legal fallout would be. business experts say these allegations of corporate espionage are unusual. >> it's not common. big, publicly traded big brand company tend to try to avoid this thing because of what they call reputational risk. that's the worry that this is going to blow up in their faces and cause a lot of embarrassment. >> reporter: this isn't the first time peta has sounded the alarm. in 2002 the animal rights group filed a lawsuit claiming the ringling brothers barnum and bailey circus spied on them. that lawsuit was dismissed in 2006. willie and savannah? >> strange story. gabe gutierrez, thanks. meantime tonight all eyes are going to be on caitlyn jenner. she's accepting an honor tied to her transition to life as a woman.

but as nbc's national correspondent kate snow explains jenner's selection is not without some controversy. kate good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah. caitlyn jenner's being honored at the epsys with the arthur ashe courage award this evening, an accolade she says means a great deal to her, not only because ash was one of her heroes but because she'll be able to stand as her true self in front of her peers. >> it's so great out there. >> reporter: less than two months after revealing herself on the cover of "vanity fair," caitlyn jenner now says in a blog post that she never expected all this. "it's honestly been incredibly positive." the former olympian has been taping a docuseries with "e!" network called "i am cait," but tonight's epsy awards in los angeles will mark jenner's return to the red carpet this time as caitlyn. >> i think people should expect the same person they've gotten to know all these years, actually. because when a transgender person transitions, they just become more of their authentic self and who they really are. >> reporter: epsy awards producers say it was her courage
7:35 am
to be her authentic self that caught their attention. they say jenner's journey "may not only give comfort to those facing similar circumstances but can also help to educate people on the challenges that the trans transgender community faces." on social media, many expressed support for jenner but some question whether she deserved the award named after the groundbreaking tennis star turned aids activist arthur ashe. "i totally respect caitlyn jenner," one woman wrote on twitter, "however in my opinion, this year amy van dyken is much more deserving of this honor." when asked about this year's recipient, nbc's bob costas weighed in. >> this is not anything against caitlyn jenner. i'm pretty sure they could have found someone who was much closer to actively involved in sports who would have been deserving of what that award represents. >> reporter: the executive producer of the epsy awards told "sports illustrated" that the decision to honor jen year was not a publicity stunt, adding
7:36 am
that if caitlyn jenner attracts viewers to the broadcast "we are not going to run away from that. every person who has a cause needs a platform." for jenner who's been experimenting with her nails and asking fans what she should wear this day is a long time coming. >> this award is a powerful recognition of the fact that for her personally this was a courageous act to transition and also that transgender people can be celebrated as heroes. >> now, all of caitlyn jenner's children are expected to attend tonight's ceremony with her, including stepchildren kourtney khloe and kim kardashian. >> a lot of people can see both sides to this. >> one thing is for sure a lot of people will be watching. >> to see what she says too. >> and whether that was the motive i guess we'll never really know. by the way, caitlyn jenner's dockuseries "i am cait" premieres sunday on our sister network, "e!" >> thanks a lot. let's get the weather now with al. do you know why yesterday

at ally bank no branches equals great rates. it's a fact. kind of like shopping hungry equals overshopping. good day, president obama is about to hold a formal news conference in the white house east room. it comes on the heels of this week's historic agreement between the u.s. and five other nations with iran to limit iran's nuclear program. in exchange for ending some economic sanctions. our senior white house correspondent chris jan sing is in the east room. >> he is going to be giving a re
10:23 am
robust defense of this deal. every republican coming out and being strong against it. we've heard the republican presidential candidates against it. his target is going to be the american people. and democrats who are concerned about whether this deal really is safe really in the long run. it keeps iran and its nuclear program in check. which is why earlier today we saw vice president biden on the hill and we're hearing from the president later today. lester? >> one of those hoping to sway congress to reject this is benjamin netanyahu. i spoke to him a few hours ago about his relationship with the president over this. >> i think we have an honest disagreement. i think the question is really what's the nature of this iranian regime. i thought that the right deal would have lifted the restrictions on iran's nuclear program only if we saw a perceptible change in iran's behavior. >> a lot of opposition overseas and certainly in congress. the president having a very wide
10:24 am
audience he will be trying to reach today. he'll be answering questions on some recent supreme court decisions. the president has held his last formal news conference in december. he has spoken to the press since then. we are awaiting him to come out any moment to begin that campaign try to convince congress and the american people that this deal with iran was a good one, that it makes us safer, that it makes the middle east safer. the question of course the timeline as it nears the end of his agreement, ten down to 15 years. does it open the door for iran to resume its nuclear activities and how quickly could they get going again, even if this were somehow to fall apart. chris, is the president going to be working the room so to speak, with members in congress in the days ahead? >> he absolutely is. he's been making a lot of phone calls. his vice president is making a lot of phone calls. he is sending any cue member in his administration out there. when you hear democrats that are
10:25 am
skeptical. they say i need to know about the details. a person to watch is energy secretary who can answer the technical questions. we have heard the president is going to be out there. he is ready to answer any question about this. he will be doing this in a visible way. congress has 60 days to review it. that's time for them to build opposition. they have a plan at the white house to counter that opposition. lester. >> and here comes the president as we hear the announcement. >> please have a seat. good afternoon, everybody. yesterday was a historic day. the comprehensive long term deal we achieved with our allies and partners to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon
10:26 am
represents a powerful show of diplomacy. it shows what we can accomplish when we lead from a position of strength and principle when we unite the nerlt community around a shared vision. we resolve to solve problems peacefully. as i said yesterday it's important for the american people and congress to get a full opportunity to review this deal. that process is now underway. i've already reached out to leaders in congress on both sides of the aisle. my national security team has begun offering extensive briefings. i expect the debate to be robust. that's how it should be. this is an important issue. our national security policies are stronger and more effective when they are subject to scrutiny and transparency that democracy demands. and as i said yesterday, the details of this deal matter very much. that's why our team worked so hard for so long to get the details right.
10:27 am
at the same time as this debate unfold i hope we don't lose sight of the larger picture. the opportunity that this agreement represents. as we go forward it's important for everybody to remember the alternative and the fundamental choice that this moment represents. with this deal we cut off every single one of iran's pathways to a nuclear program. a nuclear weapons program. and iran's nuclear program will be under severe limits for many years. without a deal those pathways remain open. there would be no limits to iran's nuclear program and iran could move closer to a nuclear bomb. with this deal we gain unprecedented around the clock monitoring of iran's key nuclear facilities. the most comprehensive and
10:28 am
intrusive inspection and verification regime ever negotiated. without a deal those inspections go away. and we lose the ability to closely monitor iran's program and detect any covert nuclear weapons program. with this deal if iran violates its commitments there will be real consequences. nuclear related sanctions that have helped to cripple the iranian economy will snap back into place. without a deal the international sanctions regime will unravel. with little ability to reimpose them. with this deal we have the possibility of peacefully resolving a major threat to regional and international security. without a deal we risk even more war in the middle east and other countries in the region would feel compelled to pursue their own nuclear programs threatening a nuclear arms race in the most volatile region in
10:29 am
the world. as i said yesterday, even with this deal we will continue to have profound differences with iran. in support of terrorism and its use of proxies to destabilize parts of the middle east. therefore, the multilat rrl arms embargo will remain in place for five years. and ballistic missiles will remain for eight years. the united states will have its own set of sanctions, and will continue our unprecedented security cooperation with israel and continue to deepen our partnerships with the gulf states. but the bottom line is this this nuclear deal meets the national security interests of the united states and our allies. it prevents the most serious threat iran obtaining a nuclear weapon which would only make the
10:30 am
other problems that iran may cause even worse. that's why this deal makes our country and the world safer and more secure. it's why the alternative, no limits on iran's nuclear program, no inspections an iran that's closing to a nuclear weapon. the risk of nuclear arms race and a greater risk of war, all that would endanger our security. that's the choice that we face. if we don't choose wisely i believe future generations will judge us harshly for letting this moment slip away. no one suggests this deal resolves all the threats that iran poses to its neighbors or the world. moreover realizing the promise of this deal will require hard work and vinyl lnsgilance and execution. this deal is our best means of
10:31 am
insuring that iran does not get a nuclear weapon. from the start that has been my number one priority. our number one priority. we've got historic chance to pursue a safer and more secure world. an opportunity that may not come again in our lifetimes. as president and as commander in chief, i am determined to seize that opportunity. so with that i'm going to take some questions. al and let me see who i'm starting off with. here you go. i got it. andrew beaty. >> thank you, mr. president. yesterday you said the deal offered a chance of a new direction and relations with iran. what steps will you take to enable a more moderate iran and does this deal allow you to more
10:32 am
forcefully counter iran's destabilizing actions in the region aside from the nuclear question? thank you. >> if you don't mind because i suspect that there's going to be a common set of questions that are touched on i promise i will get to your question. i want to start off just by stepping back and reminding folks of what is at stake here. and i already did in my opening statement. i want to reiterate it because i've heard already some of the objections to the deal. the starting premise of our strategy with respect to iran has been that it would be a grave threat to the united states and to our allies if they obtained a nuclear weapon. and so everything that we've done over the last six and a half years has been designed to
10:33 am
make sure that we address that number one priority. that's what the sanctions regime was all about. that's how we were able to mobilize the international community, including some folks that we are not particularly close to to abide by these sanctions. that's how these crippling sanctions came about because we were able to gain global consensus that iran having a nuclear weapon would be a problem for everybody. that's a reason that iran's accounts got frozen and they were not able to get money for the oil sales they've made. that's the reason they had problems operating commerce. we built the international consensus around this very specific narrow but profound issue. the possibility of iran getting a nuclear weapon. and, by the way, that was not simply my priority if you look
10:34 am
back at all the debates that have taken place over the last five six years, this has been a democratic priority this has been a republican priority this has been prime minister netanyahu's priority. it's been our gulf allies priority. it's making sure iran does not get a nuclear weapon. the deal negotiated by john kerry and our allies and partners achieves that goal. it achieves our top priority. making sure that iran does not get a nuclear weapon. but we have always recognized that even if iran doesn't get a nuclear weapon iran still poses challenges to our interests and our values both in the region
10:35 am
and around the world. so when this deal gets implemented, we know that we will have dismantled the immediate concerns around iran's nuclear program. we will have brought their stockpiles down to 98%. we will have significantly reduced the number of centrifuges they operate. we will have installed an unprecedented inspections regime. and that will remain in place, not just for ten years, but, for example, on the stockpiles will continue for 15 years. iran will have pledged to the international community that it will not develop a nuclear weapon and now will be subject to an additional protocol. a more vigorous inspection in
10:36 am
monitoring regime that lasts in perpetuity. we will have disabled a facility like iraq the iraq facility from allowing iran to develop pluton plutonument that could be used for a bomb. we will have greatly reduced the stockpile of uranium that's enriched. and we will have put in place inspections along the entire supply chain, so that if uranium was diverted into a covert program we would catch it. so i can say with confidence but more importantly nuclear experts can say with confidence that iran will not be in a position to develop a nuclear bomb. we will have met our number one priority.
10:37 am
now, we'll still have problems with iran's sponsorship of terrorism. it's funding of proxies like hezbollah that threaten israel and threaten the region. the destabilizing activities that they're engaging in including like places like yemen. and my hope is that building on this deal we can continue to have conversations with iran that incentivize them to behave differently in the region. to be less aggressive less hostile, more cooperative to operate the way we expect nations in the international community to behave. but we're not counting on it. so this deal is not contingent on iran changing its behavior. it's not contingent on iran
10:38 am
acting like a democracy. it solves a particular problem, making sure they don't have a bomb. the point i've repeatedly made and one that's hard to dispute. it will be harder for us to check iran's activities, to push back against the other areas where they operate contrary to us or our allies' interest if they don't have a bomb. so will they change their behavior? will we seek to gain more cooperation from them in resolving issues like syria or what's happening in iraq to stop encouraging houthis in yemen? we'll continue to engage with them. keep in mind that unlike the cuba situation, we're not
10:39 am
normalizing diplomatic relations here. the contacts will continue to be limited. will we try to encourage them to take a more constructive path? of course. we're not betting it. in fact having resolved the nuclear issue we will be in a stronger position to work with israel work with the gulf countries, work with our other partners work with the europeans to bring additional pressure to bear on iran around those issues that remain of concern. but the argument that i've been already hearing and this was foreshadowed even before the deal was announced. that because this deal does not solve all those other problems that that's an argument for rejecting this deal. defies logic. it makes no sense. and it loses sight of what was our original number one priority which is making sure that they don't have a bomb.
10:40 am
john carl. >> mr. president, does it give you any pause to see this deal praised by syrian dictator assad or praised by those in tehran who still shout death to america, yet our closest ally in the middle east calls it a mistake of historic proportions? here in congress it looks like a large majority will vote to reject this deal. i know you can veto that rejection, but do you have any concerns about seeing a majority of the people's representatives in congress saying that this is a bad deal? and if i can just ask you a quick political question a very quick one. >> let me answer the question that you asked. it does not give me pause that mr. assad or others in tehran
10:41 am
may be trying to spin the deal in a way that they think is favorable to what their constituencies want to hear. that's what politicians do. and that's been the case throughout. you will recall that during the course of the negotiations during the last couple of months every time the spleemupreme leader or tweeted something out, we bought into the notion that well the obama administration must be giving this or capitulating to that. now we have a document. so you can see what the deal is. we don't have to speculate or engage in spin. you can read what it says. and what is required. nobody has disputed that as a consequence of this agreement, iran has to drastically reduce its stockpiles of uranium, cut off from plutonium. the facility that is underground
10:42 am
is converted. that we have an unprecedented inspections regime. we have snackp back provisions if they cheat. the facts are the facts. i'm not concerned with what others say about it. with respect to congress my hope i won't prejudge this. my hope is everyone in congress also evaluates this agreement based on the facts. not on politics. not on posturing. not on the fact that this is a deal bring to congress as opposed to a republican president. not based on lobbying but based on what's in the national interest of the united states of america. and i think that if congress does that then in fact based on
10:43 am
the facts, the majority of congress should approve of this deal. but we live in washington and politics do intrude. as i said in an interview yesterday, i am not betting on the republican party rallying behind this agreement. i do expect the debate to be based on facts and not speculation or misinformation. and that i welcome. in part because, look there are legitimate real concerns here. we've already talked about it. we have huge differences with iran. israel has legitimate concerns
10:44 am
about its security relative to iran. you have a large country with a significant military that has proclaimed that israel shouldn't exist, that has denied the holocaust that has financed hezbollah. and as a consequence, there are missiles that are pointed towards tel aviv. there are really good reasons why israelis are nervous about iran's position. i've said it to mr. netanyahu, i've said it to the israeli people. what i've also said is that all those threats are compounded if iran gets a nuclear weapon. and for all the objections of prime minister netanyahu or for that matter some of the
10:45 am
republican leadership that's already spoken none of them have presented to me or the american people a better alternative. i'm hearing a lot of talking points being repeat about this is a bad deal. this is a historically bad deal. this will threaten israel and threaten the world, threaten the united states. i mean there's been a lot of that. what i haven't heard is what is your preferred alternative? if 99% of the world community and the majority of nuclear experts look at this thing and they say this will prevent iran from getting a nuclear bomb and you are arguing either that it
10:46 am
does not or that even if it does it's temporary or because they'll get a windfall of their accounts being unfrozen that they'll cause more problems, then you should have some alternative to present. i haven't heard it. and it's because there really are only two alternatives here. either the issue of iran obtaining a nuclear weapon is resolved resolved resolved resolved diplomatically or it's resolved through force, through war. those are the options. now, you'll hear some critics say, well we could have negotiated a better deal. okay. what does that mean? i think the suggestion, among a lot of the critic has been that a better deal an acceptable
10:47 am
deal would be one in which iran has no nuclear capacity at all, peaceful or otherwise. the problem with that position is that there is nobody who thinks that iran would or could ever accept that, and the international community does not take the view that iran can't have a peaceful nuclear program. they agree with us that iran cannot have a nuclear weapon. and so we don't have diplomatic leverage to eliminate every vestige of a peaceful nuclear program in iran. but we do have the leverage is to make sure they don't have a weapon. that's exactly what we've done. so to go back to congress i
10:48 am
challenge those who are objecting to this agreement to read the agreement before they comment on it. number two, to explain specifically where it is that they think this agreement does not prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon. and why they're right and people like the mit nuclear physicist and an expert in this is wrong, why the rest of the world is wrong, and then present an alternative. and if the alternative is that we should bring iran to heel through military force, then those critics should say so. and that will be an honest debate. all right. >> if i can, prime minister netanyahu said you have a situation where iran can delay 24 days -- >> i'm happy -- that's a good
10:49 am
example. so let's take the issue of 24 days. this has been swirling today, the notion that this is insufficient in terms of inspections. keep in mind first of all, that we'll have 24/7 inspections of declared nuclear facilities. four down iraq the uranium mines facilities that are known to produce centrifuges, parts. that entire infrastructure that we know about we will have sophisticated 24/7 monitoring of those facilities. so then the issue is what if they try to develop a covert program? now, one of the advantages of having inspections across the entire production chain is that it makes it very difficult to set up a covert program.
10:50 am
you know there are only so many uranium mines in iran. if in fact we're counting the amount of your uranium and something is missing on the back end, they've got some explaining to do. so we're able to track what's happening along the existing facilities to make sure that there is not diversion into a covert program. let's say that iran is so determined that it now wants to operate covertly the iaea the international organization charged with implementing the non-proliferation treaty and monitoring nuclear activities in countries around the world, the iaea will have the ability to say that indeclared site we're
10:51 am
concerned about. we see something suspicious. they will be able to say to iran we want to go and inspect that. if iran objects, we can override it. in the agreement we set it up so we can override iran's objections. we don't need russia or china in order for us to get that override. and if they continue to object we're in a position to snap back sanctions and declare that iran's in violation and is cheating. for the fact that it may take 24 days to finally get access to the site the nature of nuclear programs and facilities is such -- this is not something you hide in a closet. this is not something you put on a dolly and wheel off somewhere. and, by the way, if we identify
10:52 am
an undeclared site that we're suspicious about, we're going to be keeping eyes on it. so we're going to be monitoring what the activity is. and that's going to be something that will be evidence if we think that some funny business was going on there. that we can then present to the international community. so we'll be monitoring that that entire time. and, by the way, if there is nuclear material on that site you know your high school physics will remind us that that leaves a trace. and so we'll know that in fact there was a violation of the agreement. so the point is jonathan that this is the most vigorous inspection and verification
10:53 am
regime that has ever been negotiated. is it possible that iran decides to try to cheat despite having this entire inspection verification mechanism? it's possible. but if it does, first of all, we built in a one-year breakout time which gives us time to respond forcefully. and we've been in a snap back provision so we don't have to go through lengthy negotiations of the un to put the sanctions right back in place. and so really the only argument you can make against the verification and inspection mechanism that we've put forward is that iran is so intent on obtaining a nuclear weapon that no inspection regime and no verification mechanism would be sufficient because they'd find some way to get around it because they're untrustworthy.
10:54 am
if that's your view we go back to the choice you made earlier. that means presumably that you can't negotiate. and what you're really saying is that you've got to apply military force to guarantee that they don't have a nuclear program. and if somebody wants to make that debate whether it's the republican leadership or prime minister netanyahu or the israeli ambassador or others they're free to make it. but it's not persuasive. carol lee. >> thank you, mr. president. i want to ask you about the arms and ballistic missile embargo. why did you agree to lift those even with the five and eight year duration? it's emerging as a sticking point on the hill. and are you concerned that arms to iran will go to hes bola or hamas and is there anything you or a future president can do to stop that?
10:55 am
i wanted to see if you could step back a little bit. when you look at this iran deal and all the other issues and unrest that's happening in the middle east what kind of middle east do you want to leave when you leave the white house in a year and a half? >> so the issue of the arms embargo and ballistic missiles is a real concern to us has been a real concern to us. and it is in the national security interests of the united states to prevent iran from sending weapons to hezbollah for example. or sending weapons to the houthis in yemen that accelerate a civil war there. we have a number of mechanisms under international law that gives us authority to interdict arms shipments by iran.

one of those mechanisms is the un security resolution related to iran's nuclear program. essentially, iran was sanctioned because of what had happened,ist unwillingness to comply with previous un security resolutions about their nuclear program. and as part of the package of sanctions that was slapped on them the issue of arms and ballistic missiles were included. now, under the terms of the original un resolution the fact is that once an agreement was arrived at that gave the international community assurance iran didn't have a nuclear weapon. you could argue looking at the
10:57 am
text that those arms and ballistic missiles prohibitions should immediately go away. but what i said to our negotiators was given that iran has breached trust and the uncertainty of our allies in the region about iran's activities let's press for a longer extension of the arms embargo and ballistic missile prohibition prohibitions. and we got that. we got five years in which under this new agreement arms coming in and out of iran are prolibtsed. we've got eight years with respect to ballistic missiles. but part of the reason why we were willing to extend it only for five let's say, as opposed to a longer period of time is because we have other un
10:58 am
resolutions that prohibit arms sales by iran to organizations like hezbollah. we have other un resolutions in multilateral agreements that give us authority to interdict arms shipments from iran throughout the region. and so we've had belts and suspenders and buttons, a whole bunch of different legal authorities, these legal authorities under the nuclear program may lapse after five or eight years. but we'll still be in possession of other legal authorities that allow us to interdict those arms. and truthfully these prohibitions are not self-enforcing. it's not like the un has the capacity to police what iran is doing. what it does is it gives us
10:59 am
authority under international law to prevent arms shipments from happening. in concert with our allies and our partners. and the real problem, if you look at how, for example hezbollah got a lot of missiles that are a grave threat to israel and many of our friends in the region it's not because they were legal. it's not because somehow that was authorized under international law. it was because there was insufficient capacity to stop those shipments. i share the concerns of israel saudis gulf partners about iran shipping arms and causing conflict and chaos in the region. and that's why i've said to them let's double down and
11:00 am
partner much more effectively improve our intelligence capacity and our interdiction capacity so that capacity so that fewer of those arm shipments are getting through the net. but the legal authorities we'll still possess. and obviously we've got our own unilateral prohibitions and sanctions in place around non-nuclear issues like support for hezbollah and those remain in place. in terms of the larger issues in the middle east obviously that's a longer discussion. i think my key goal when i turn over the keys to the next president is that we are on track to defeat isil.
