Kerry Started Deal While Still in the Senate

Secretary of State John Kerry began back channel talks for an Iran nuclear deal with a secret trip to Oman before he was even confirmed for his job, the Boston Globe reports.

"The trip -- aimed at ending Iran's nuclear program -- was undertaken with the blessing of the Obama administration. The overture proved to be the beginning of a relationship that Kerry has now relied on as secretary of state and that aides credit with helping the United States, Russia, France, Britain, Germany, and China reach the agreement with Iran. Oman has become a vital link in communication between the US and Iranian leaders."
