If you really want to know about legal aspects of the Iran deal,

this might help. http://www.asil.org/insights/volume/19/issue/14/iran-nuclear-weapons-and-international-law-what-might-final-agreement Yes, the June deadline has passed, but there is an agreement to continue talks to July 7. http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Middle-East/2015/0701/UN-report-says-Iran-is-on-target-to-meet-goals-for-cutting-nuclear-arms

ASIL is a nonpartisan association of US academics and practitioners of international law. http://www.asil.org/community

If you have about a 1.5 hour to spare and really want to know about the history, background and legal issues pertaining to any Iran deal, you can find a recent event video (from May 22, 2015) at this link. http://www.asil.org/resources/asil-event-videos

While some content is restricted to members only (I am one), much is available free of charge to the public, as you can see from these urls.

Please inform yourselves as best you can about these (and other) IL issues because the preponderance of the US MSM will not (CSMonitor can be an exception in some instances). And we have a truly crazy bunch of nutcases in the US Congress and their allies - bad as any Iranian hardliners - who would like to sabotage any deal so that the saga of ongoing war everywhere continues and they can continue to drive their own selfish agendas, whether economic, political, or religious.

For legal junkies, this is a great reference from SCOTUSblog.
