2:06 am
you can enrich uranium to well below the level needed to make a bomb and allows intrusive inspections on all nuclear sites on a daily basis so a real achievement for diplomacy but just a start because they have to start talking now about the final status for iran's nuclear program. >> let's talk a little bit about the nay sayers. israeli prime minister netanyahu called the deal a historic mistake. i understand the president and he have spoken since. what happens next? is israeli going to be involved in the next stage here? >> reporter: they are not going to be. i supposed the way they are going to be involved is in publicly lobbying against this deal as prime minister benjamin netanyahu has been doing before the deal and since then. u.s. official have said throughout they only have tactical disagreements with israeli over this but it's a pretty big tactical disagreement because the administration has made a decision they can bargain
2:07 am
with iran and trust that iran will follow through with this deal and israeli, america's closest ally in the region has made the conclusion it cannot. it seems the u.s. administration is willing to live with that difference but it's going to have to be fighting. fighting, knowing, pushing through with these negotiations each while israeli is pushing against them and, of course, there is also opposition on capitol hill as well. >> jim sciutto live for us in geneva, thank you for that. afghan president hamid karzai is holding up a security green light with the united states. afghanistan's elders met with karzai four daze and elders are endorsing a deal to keep some u.s. support troops in the country beyond 2014 but karzai is refusing to sign on. he wants to wait until after presidential elections in april. even though the u.s. has set a firm year-end deadline for him to decide. president obama is visiting san francisco today and los angeles where speeches on immigration and the economy. attending fund-raisers for
