Iran Test Fires Missile That Could Reach Israel; Defense Sec. Gates Leaves Door Open For Iran Diplomacy, Chides Cheney (Video)

Iran has test fired a missile which "could reach Israel". The Obama Team continues to naively believe that words and diplomacy can work with the Islamic Republic.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates appears on "State of the Union" to talk about the discovery of Iran's new nuclear facility.

Gates says: "The reality is, there is no military option that does anything more than buy time. The estimates are one to three years or so. And the only way you end up not having a nuclear-capable Iran is for the Iranian government to decide that their security is diminished by having those weapons, as opposed to strengthened." However, he adds: "I think there's still room left for diplomacy... The Iranians are in a very bad spot now, because of this deception."

Also, Gates, who says that they have been "watching" construction of the new nuke site "for quite some time," is asked by John King if former Vice President Dick Cheney was of the belief that that location was a target. "I'll just let his statement speak for itself," he replied.

  1. Gates has obviously been drinking Obama's Kool Aid. What is so hard to understand that Iran HATES Isreal and America. Iran will not stop until they carry out exactly what they have planned.
