Phyllis Bennis joins The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell to discuss the ramifications of the negotiated nuclear agreement between the U.S. and Iran, both in terms of future relations between the two countries, as well as for diplomacy at large:

“I think the broadest, most important aspect, is that this deal… is a huge victory of diplomacy over war. It gives us clear evidence that diplomacy works… In an era when we’re hearing constantly ‘there is no military solution,’ whether it’s [related] to ISIS or the crisis in Syria, Libya, Iraq, and yet, the only strategy we see being imposed tends to be a military strategy. So this is a very important example of why the point that is made is true: there is no military solution, and there is in fact a negotiated diplomatic solution.”
