CIA director John Brennan gave a staunch defense of the framework nuclear deal with Iran on Tuesday, calling some criticism of the accord "disingenuous" while expressing surprise at Tehran's concessions.In his first public remarks since the outline agreement was announced last week, the spy agency chief said the deal would impose a litany of restrictions on Iran's nuclear work that had once seemed impossible to secure. The outline deal announced last week would see the United States and the European Union lift all nuclear-related sanctions on Iran in exchange for a 98-percent cut in Iran's stocks of highly enriched uranium for 15 years.Brennan, a career intelligence officer who served as President Barack Obama's counter-terrorism adviser before taking over at the spy agency, said Iran's attitude on the issue had changed since Obama entered office six years ago mainly because sanctions had hit the country's economy hard, he said.
