Kerry: Military Option Not Off The Table With Iran

Secretary of State John Kerry said on Sunday that President Obama will still consider the military option if Iran does not live up to its part of the deal to halt the country’s nuclear program.

“The president maintains as commander-in-chief and has said specifically that he has not taken that threat off the table,” Kerry said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”.

Kerry added that Iran is going to have to prove itself with actions in order for the deal to proceed.

“Iran will have to prove that its program is really peaceful,” he said. “There’s nothing built on trust. We’re not sitting here pretending that Iran is going to suddenly turn over a new leaf. We have to prove it.”
