Panetta: Give Iran sanctions time

Israeli officials have recently lamented that the sanctions against Iran haven’t been effective. An indication that they might favor military intervention to thwart Iran’s nuclear weapons program – a nuclear program that Tehran insists is for the development of energy only and is peaceful.

But Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, speaking in Tunisia, says it’s not yet time to abandon sanctions – that they need time to work.

  1. With all due respect, Panetta’s comment reveals impotence. The Obama administration has had 3 1/2 years to accomplish their stated goal of preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons. The truth is they have failed badly, because they frittered away the time with weak, useless, tactics that Iran has exploited to their advantage. Is anyone surprised?
