“Our primary objectives are to prevent Iran from having a nuclear weapon, make sure Israel is safe and, if possible, avoid another war in the Middle East,” the Colorado lawmaker said in a statement that was released first to the Denver Post. “This agreement represents a flawed, but important step to accomplish those goals.”
