11:00 am
right now, cars vandalized in one community. someone smashed multiple windows in south jersey. in one camden county neighborhood got a rude awakening when they went out to their cars. this happened in dmren doer gle. >> reporter: we found broken out windows and we also found one shattered windshield along fern drive. the larsens were taping up their
11:01 am
windows, others were vacuuming up glass. they say whoever was responsible had no regard, and police live in this neighborhood. >> i'm in school, in class 9:00 to 6:00, and now have i to come back, the 40-minute long break i have, to go get the window fi d fixed. i only work a few hours a week, because i'm in school full time. coming out of my paycheck, not a fun thing. >> my dad woke me up and came inside and said, did you get in a fight with somebody? i said, no. >> reporter: also reached out to gloucester township police and they say so far they have had reports of four incidents in glendora and nobody in custody. we'll tell you what one resident believes is the timeline. live in glendora, monique braxton, "nbc10 news." hapgs now, secretary of state john kerry is in
11:02 am
philadelphia to deliver a speech on the nuclear agreement with iran at the national constitution center. the senator kerry is in the process of being introduced. he is standing to the left of the podium. we expect to hear from him any moment now. the state has just 15 days left to vote on the deal to freeze iran's capability of building nuclear bombs but not destroying their arsenal. two local democratic senators announced their support for the deal yesterday. bob casey of pennsylvania and chris kuhns of delaware. tom carper announced his support for the deal last week. that leaves the president just one short -- one vote short, rather, of the number he needs to prevent a veto override if the congress tries to strike down a deal. >> i think the agreement enhances our own national security and also enhances the security of israel. right now the reality is, as we sit here today, iran has only two or three months before they
11:03 am
would have enough fisile material to make a bomb. >> it puts us on a path of iran making a bomb within the next 15 years. >> senator kerry said in the past is it will weaken the u.s. dollar and force our allies to lose confidence in the united states. iran's clerical body of experts held their annual meeting yesterday. the chairman of the assembly said members support the historic nuclear deal but it does not change the islamic republic's policy during the u.s. he added the u.s. remains iran's number one enemy. if you want to watch secretary kerry's speech in its entirety, go to our website -- actually, secretary kerry stepped to the po podium. let's listen in. >> it's great to be in philadelphia. i'm delighted to see so many young people with us. i know school has started. i know the choice between coming
11:04 am
here and sitting in class was a very tough one. we're glad you made the choice you did. i am particularly greatful senator lugar chose to come here this morning in order to introduce me and reaffirm his support for this agreement. i'm even more grateful for his service to our country over the course of a lifetime. as a former colleague of his on the foreign relations committee, which he referred to in his introduction, i can bear witness that dick lugar is one of the true legislative path-finders of recent time with a long record of foreign policy. what he and sam nunn did is a lasting legacy of making this world safer. he is also someone who has consistently placed our country's interest above any other consideration. and he has a very deep understanding of how best to prevent nuclear weapons from
11:05 am
falling into the wrong hands. he is one of our experts when it comes to that judgment. so, it is appropriate that the senator is here with us this morning. and i think every one of us here joins in saying thank you to you, dick, for your tremendous service. it's also fitting to be here in philadelphia, the home ground of this absolutely magnificent center to the constitution, the liberty and one of our nation's most revered founders, benjamin franklin. and i must say, i never quite anticipated, but this is one of the vistas in america and to be able to look down and see independence hall there is inspiring, i think, for all of us here. i would say a quick word about ben franklin. in addition to his many inventions and his special status as america's first
11:06 am
diplomat, franklin is actually credited with being the first person known to have made a list of pros and cons, literally, dividing a page in two and writing all of the reasons to support a proposal on one side and all of the reasons to oppose it on the other. and this morning i would like to invite you, those here and those listening in the media, to participate in just such an exercise. because two months ago in vienna, the united states and five other nations, including permanent members of the u.n. security council -- as early as next week, congress will begin voting on whether to support that plan. and the outcome will matter as
11:07 am
much as any foreign policy decision in recent history. like senator lugar, president obama and i are convinced beyond any reasonable doubt that the framework we have put forward will get the job done. and in that assessment -- >> you were just listening to secretary of state john kerry, who first lauded the former senator of indiana, dick lugar, who just introduced him. we just learned in the moments as the secretary took to the podium they just received the 34th vote they needed to -- in order to -- for the override of a veto. democrat barbara mccullsky of indiana is that vote. we'll continue to monitor the speech and have more of his remarks on "nbc10 news" this
