NBC NATIONAL NEWS — President Obama welcomed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to the White House today, and no issue on their agenda is more pressing than Iran.
The president is hoping international sanctions will force the Iranian regime to drop its nuclear program.
The prime minister, meanwhile, is reserving the right to take swift military action.
The last White House meeting of the two leaders last May was notably contentious and their relationship since seems best described as tense.
Meanwhile, the United Nations' nuclear watchdog reports today that Iran has tripled its enriched uranium production, raising serious concerns about a how close the regime is creating a weapon.
