Secretary of State John Kerry said Friday that if the U.S. Congress disapproves of the Iranian nuclear deal, it will undermine President Barack Obama's ability to act throughout the world.Kerry defended the nuclear deal the U.S. and five other world powers negotiated with Iran at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York, saying that the deal struck last week in Vienna is the only alternative to military action and must be tested if diplomacy is to succeed.In a reprise of his testimony Thursday before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Kerry said the agreement is the best way to prevent Iran from developing an atomic weapon. Kerry has been front and center in the Obama administration's campaign to sell the deal to skeptical lawmakers.Slowly, a number of congressional Democrats have begun lining up behind the deal.At a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on Thursday, Kerry said that it is "fantasy, plain and simple," to claim that Obama failed to insist on enough restraints on Iran's nuclear program before agreeing to lift economic sanctions long in place.
