President Obama on Iran: Nothing's off the table

President Obama told a gathering of Reform Jews today that his administration is determined to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons, describing its nuclear program as a "threat to the security of Israel, the United States and the world.

"That's why we’ve worked painstakingly from the moment I took office with allies and partners, and we have imposed the most comprehensive, the hardest-hitting sanctions that the Iranian regime has ever faced," he said. "We haven’t just talked about it, we have done it. And we’re going to keep up the pressure. And that’s why, rest assured, we will take no options off the table. We have been clear."
