Former Sen. Joe Lieberman, who elected to a fourth and final term in 2006 as an independent after his pro-Iraq war stance cost him the Democratic Party’s nomination, Lieberman now is lobbying against the nuclear deal negotiated by the United States and others to force concessions from Iran in its nuclear program.

“I don’t see my opposition to the Iran agreement as a continuation to what I supported in Iraq, ” he told Stephen Singer, the Associated Press in a phone interview Friday. “It is post-9/11. It is in opposition to a country like Iran, which is essentially run by an extremist terrorist government getting nuclear weapons, which I think this agreement essentially allows them to do.”
