by Colonel on March 8, 2013

“The comments do not represent a change in the Obama administration’s thinking, but come as the president prepares to travel in two weeks to the region where he is expected to be pressed over Iran by the Israeli government.

Obama was pressed at the meeting about why he didn’t use tougher rhetoric regarding Iran’s nuclear program, which Tehran says is for peaceful purposes. …

Obama said he will work toward a diplomatic resolution and that he still intends to achieve one. He said he is not going to do something for “chest beating” just to show people he is tough, two sources said.

During the trip, Obama will issue what is called a “clear and direct” challenge to Iran and that he told the meeting “no options are off the table, including military options,” one participant told CNN.
