White House spokesman Jay Carney sought to reassure Israel on Friday when he said in a press briefing that the U.S. has real-time information on the Iranian nuclear program. “We have ‘eyes’ inside the nuclear facilities and we will know in real time when and if Iran decides to cross the threshold and develop nuclear weapons,” Carney said, according to a report by Channel 10 News. Carney’s remarks were made in response to recent assessments in Israel, especially those of Defense Minister Ehud Barak, according to which the Americans understand that the Iranian threat is becoming an increased concern.
“The president remains committed to preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons,” he was quoted as having said. “We are leading an international move to enforce the sanctions, which even the president of Iran has called the most severe sanctions ever imposed on a country,” Carney continued. “Hardly a week goes by in which we do not worsen the sanctions.”
