Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, discusses diplomacy in Iran, Iraq's unstable government, and China's military buildup.
The notion has been floated that some people in the Obama administration feel that Israeli policy toward the Palestinians somehow undermines US national security. Do you feel that Israeli policy is a threat to your men and women in uniform in places like Afghanistan?
Adm. Mullen: No, I don’t.
On Iran, I have spoken very clearly for a long time about the consequences and unintended consequences of Iran obtaining nuclear weapons capability and the threat that presents. On the other side, if there were a strike (against them), I worry as much about those unintended consequences as I do about those that we could figure out going in.
