Strike on Iran seems more likely now: Ex-CIA Chief
Washington: A former CIA director says
military action against Iran now seems more likely because no
matter what the US does diplomatically, Tehran keeps pushing
ahead with its suspected nuclear programme.
Michael Hayden, a CIA chief under President George W
Bush, says that during his tenure a strike was "way down the
list" of options. But he tells CNN`s "State of the Union" that
such action now "seems inexorable."
He predicts Iran will build its programme to the point
where it`s just below having an actual weapon. Hayden says
that would be as destabilising to the region as the real
US officials have said military action remains an
option if sanctions fail to deter Iran. Iran says its nuclear
work is for peaceful purposes such as power generation.
