Secretary of State John Kerry doubled down on the controversial Iran nuclear deal Tuesday, telling lawmakers that there was not a better deal available to negotiators and that since 2003 Iran has not pursued a nuclear bomb to the best of Americas knowledge.
Speaking in a moderated discussion on the nuclear deal reached with Iran hosted by Thomson Reuters in New York, Kerry tried to counter Republican claims that a better deal can be reached.
Kerry told the forum that President George W. Bush tried in 2003 and 2008 to get a better deal, but there is not a better deal to be gotten.

I’m not sure if this is desperation or delusion on his part.
He could always show us proof of that by sharing satellite imagery of certain areas of Iran in 2003 vs today
Just borrow it from Hillary’s private server
WOW! It is sad to see some one buy their own BS in public. ( well not so sad to see Kerry do it. He has had a great deal of practice).
If they stopped in 2003, then why the need for the treaty?
Kerry lying?? You don’t say!!! It’s hard to believe.
Bingo. He just stepped on his weenie and didn’t even realize it. If there hasn’t been a nuclear program there in over a decade, why were there sanctions. Why the deal now. Why worry about stopping something long dead. Kerry must have been hanging around with Biden too much, he’s starting to sound just as idiotic. Hey, don’t worry Israel. If Iran fires a nuclear weapon at you, just go out and fire three patriots in the air. Yeah, three blasts out to do it.
Riiiiight Mr. Kerry! And who gave you this inside information? Your raghead son-in-law?
Yep, it makes perfect sense. They’ve built half a dozen new underground nuke facilities and quadrupled the number and effectiveness of centrifuges they have running 24/7/365 since 2003, because they’ve abandoned the nuke weapon idea.
“I smell the obnoxious odor of mendacity!” Burl Ives “Big Daddy” Pollett “CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF”
“If they stopped in 2003, then why the need for the treaty?”
It is a case of both.
It’s called “Blazing Saddles” diplomacy
Kerry lies almost as much as his sicko boss. It’s really amazing. But yes, we are in deep deep doo doo, and tremendous danger. Pray for America
So, what's the reason for their nuclear program, nuclear medicine?
The only way they would not be PURSUING a nuclear weapon since 2003 is if that’s when they ACQUIRED one! And I don’t believe THAT. If they had one they’d have used it by this time, either on US, or Israel.
Kerry, you’re a liar. But....what else is new?
I have no military expertise and I know there are several people here with extensive knowledge and experience in that area, so I’m hoping for an informed opinion: in any way is the accuracy or penetration ability of a bunker busting bomb face gross negative effects (beyond compensation measures) if John Kerry is physically attached to the weapon?
Both liars Obama and Kerry have asserted in the past few weeks, that without the “arrangement” Iran would have nukes in 6 months.
Since nothing in the “arrangement” does nothing to actually stop that, they feel compelled to insist Iran has not been trying to build nukes for 12 years.
These compound lies should be enough to sink the deal.

There’s a whiff of desperation Around his comments.
