 Oklahoma congressman, senator express concern on Iran deal

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Many members of Oklahoma's all-Republican congressional delegation are criticizing an agreement between Iran and world powers that's intended to curb Iran's nuclear program.

Sen. James Lankford and Rep. Jim Bridenstine say Iran is the world's largest state-sponsor of terrorism while Rep. Tom Cole says he's skeptical about trusting the intentions of Iran and believing it will abide by its word.

Sen. Jim Inhofe says only the complete dismantling of Iran's ability to build a nuclear bomb ensures the safety of America and its allies.

Rep. Steve Russell took a more cautious approach - saying this isn't the time to review what could have or should have been done, but for Congress to consider whether to ratify or reject the deal - or to ratify the deal with additional expectations.
