-- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said today that the agreement reached over Iran's controversial nuclear weapons program is a "bad deal" and asserted that Iran would use the relief from sanctions currently imposed to bolster its military operations and what Netanyahu called its "terror machine."
"It leaves Iran with a vast nuclear infrastructure. It lifts the sanctions on them fairly quickly and enables them to get billions of dollars into their coffers. They're not going to use it for schools or hospitals or roads," Netanyahu told ABC's Martha Raddatz on "This Week."
"They're going to use it to pump up their terror machine worldwide and their military machine that is busy conquering the Middle East now," he added.
