Earlier today, the U.N. Security Council backed the Iran nuclear agreement and President Barack Obama hailed the endorsement, saying it showed last week's accord commanded broad international support as the best way of ensuring Iran never gets nuclear weapons. Joining me today to discuss the deal as well as the support and opposition it is getting from around the world is Steve Clemons, the Washington editor at large for The Atlantic and editor of Atlantic Live.
Last week, an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ruled that discrimination based on sexual orientation violates Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. The case centers on a male air traffic controller who alleges the Department of Transportation denied him a promotion because he is gay, and the ruling allow him to now pursue a claim under Title VII's prohibition against sex discrimination. Joining me today to discuss the ruling and what it will mean for advancing workplace protections for LGBT people is Art Leonard of New York Law School.
