House Speaker John Boehner says the U.S. needs to do more to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons.
The Ohio Republican said the Iran Sanctions Act approved by Congress gives President Barack Obama several options for pressuring Tehran to abandon its nuclear program. He said Obama has used some of those tools but that others are also available.
He did not specify what actions he believes the U.S. should take, but said he agrees with Obama that all options should be considered — a phrase that is often used to threaten military action.
