America Abroad: Examining the Nuclear Deal with Iran

Sometime in the next two weeks, Congress will vote on one of the most important and hotly-contested foreign policy agreements in decades. The Iran Nuclear Deal will have a major impact on America's national security and the future stability of the Middle East, and it will help define President Obama's legacy.

In this hour-long documentary special, we look back at the last ten years of U.S. policy towards Iran, including an oral history with the key players.

We also look ahead to how the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action will play out over the next ten years, and we'll visit Tehran and Tel Aviv to hear how individuals in those countries perceive the deal.
