House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) said Sunday that the interim deal on Iran's nuclear program might lead to more violence rather than less.
Rogers noted Iran is still classified by the State Department as a state sponsor of terrorism and has played a significant role in the conflict in Syria. He suggested on CNN's "State of the Union" that the deal might embolden Iran.
"We may -- we may have just encouraged more violence in the future than we have stopped," Rogers said. "That's why I hope we reconsider where we're at, certainly in six months."
Rogers compared the situation to negotiations with Pakistan and North Korea, which rank among the few countries that have tested nuclear weapons.
"You have now given them a permission slip to continue enrichment," Rogers said. "That's what the whole world was trying to stop them from doing."
