Things get a little heated between Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace and Secretary of State John Kerry when Wallace tries to discredit the Obama Administration over Iran nuclear deal negotiations.
July 20, 2014

Fox News' loyal foot soldier, Chris Wallace, ruffled Secretary of State John Kerry's feathers over the Obama Administrations handling of the Iran nuclear deal negotiations and Kerry was having none of it:

Wallace and Kerry first sparred over toughening sanctions on Russia following the downing of flight MH17, allegedly by Moscow-backed Ukrainian separatists. Wallace played a clip in which Obama seemed to acknowledge the ineffectualness of U.S. sanctions, a clip Kerry strongly suggested was taken out of context.

But things got real heated after Wallace characterized the negotiations over Iran’s nuclear deal as counterproductive. Kerry, who has been orchestrating the talks since even before he was Secretary, took particular umbrage at this, arguing that the Obama administration had achieved a rollback in Iran’s nuclear development for the first time in a decade.

“I know you and others don’t ever want to give the Obama administration credit for almost anything, but the fact is this is the first administration to get a rollback in those ten years,” Kerry said. “Right now, Israel and the countries in the region and the world are safer.”
