In Iran today, more missile tests, the second round in two days. Is Tehran working eventually to arm missiles with a nuclear warhead? That's the U.S. suspicion.
The U.S. and allies revealed Friday that Iran's been building a uranium-processing plant in secret. "Iran is on notice; that when we meet with them on October 1st, they are going to have to come clean," said President Barack Obama.
Six nations face Iran in Geneva this week on its long-term weapons goals. "The Iranians are in a very bad spot now because of this deception, in terms of all of the great powers. And there obviously is the opportunity for severe additional sanctions," said Defense Secretary Robert Gates.
On Tuesday, war strategy in Afghanistan tops President Obama's agenda.
General Stanley McChrystal meets with the President along with Defense Secretary Gates and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
She said sorting out election results in Afghanistan, where the regime's been accused of fraud is step one in U.S. strategy review.
"It's not over yet. We have to wait until it is resolved -- hopefully, very soon, then make a new commitment about how we're going to meet our strategic goals," said Clinton. Secretary Gates said he has not given the President General McChrystal's request for more troops, and doesn't plan to yet.
