good evening. and it's great to have you with us here on a tuesday night. and we begin with that historic deal with iran sparking some semibragss in iran but there has been backlash here at home. it is a major victory for president obama, saying the deal is, quote, not built on trust, it is built on verification. tonight, vowing to veto any efforts by congress to derail the deal. to millions of americans, it's an agreement few could have imagined. those images from more than 30 years ago, americaning blindfolded, held hostage at the u.s. embassy in tehran. tonight, decades later, iranians watching president obama. abc's martha raddatz is the only network reporter on the ground in tehran but we begin tonight with abc's chief foreign correspondent terry moran in vienna, where the deal was struck. >> reporter: here they are -- those jubilant negotiators, in their moment of triumph. you can see it on john kerry's face.
