U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk feels it's time to cut off talks with Iran.
Another deadline looms in the talks to curb Iran's nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions. Having already missed the original June 30 target for reaching a final agreement, Kirk says the U.S. and its allies should walk away from the negotiations.

"I think in the end (Secretary of State John) Kerry's going to find there is no deal," Kirk said. "I've been very worried that if there is a deal, the Obama administration will facilitate the refund of about $165 billion...of Iranian funds that have been held up around the world."
Kirk says such a move would lead to Iran expanding efforts to build a nuclear weapon. Without a deal, Kirk says he favors extending the current sanctions and imposing new ones by passing the Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act which he introduced in Congress earlier this year.
