As Iran's President Hassan Rouhani taunted the West on Twitter that it "surrendered to the Iranian nation's will," Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., wonders what he should tell the people of his state – or the state of Israel.



"The interim deal is like Swiss cheese; it's got holes all in it," Graham said Tuesday on Fox News Channel's "On the Record With Greta Van Susteren." The six-month deal takes effect on Monday.

Van Susteren noted that the tweet was not directed at the Iranian people, as it was not in Farsi but English.

With Iran claiming a secret side deal, the White House is under pressure to release details of the agreement, but so far has not.

Graham noted that the deal allows Iran to do research and development on centrifuges, but there isn't agreement on what that means.

"Our guys say that just means pen and paper. They can design new centrifuges for research and development," Graham said. "The Iranians say, no, we can actually operate centrifuges."

Republicans and Middle East nations Israel and Syria fear Iran is stonewalling while it continues to advance toward nuclear bomb capability, not just nuclear power plants as it claims.

Graham said the Obama administration doesn't have an end-game for stopping Iran's uranium enrichment, just a plan to try to reduce it.

"I think they want a deal for a deal's sake," Graham said.
