The ministers before the final plenary.

Laura Rozen: Nuke deal chance for ‘new chapter’ with Iran.
Borger and Rozen are the best journalists I’ve been following on Iran.
Now Congress will weigh in. Tom Cotton, Lindsay Graham, and others who have opposed the deal all along condemned it long before they could possibly have read it. Here are a couple of more thoughtful conservatives: Daniel Larison and Jeffrey Goldberg.
Lots more out there, but I’ll end with this:
