Gen. Hayden: Iran ‘Far Too Close to Nuclear Weapon’

CIA Director Gen. Michael Hayden speaks



With few good choices in dealing with Iran‘s push for nuclear weapons, former  CIA and NSA Director Gen. Michael Hayden said he’s OK with letting the six-month temporary deal  with the country go forward.

But we should be truthful, Hayden told “Fox News  Sunday.”  “We have accepted Iranian uranium enrichment.”

The “red line” with Iran has clearly changed, Hayden told host Chris  Wallace.

“Right  now, the Iranians are far too close to a nuclear weapon,” he said. “We   have hit the pause button. Now we’ve got to negotiate hitting the delete  button  with them.”

At the end of the day, Hayden said, “Iran’s going to be a nuclear threshold  state.”
The deal allows Iran to have uranium enriched to 5 percent.  Previous U.N. resolutions have called  for a complete dismantling of its nuclear program and that  all materials be shipped out of the country.
