"Did Dennis Ross, just retired as President Obama’s top adviser on the Middle East, quit over differences with the Obama administration on Iran? ... in his WINEP talk, Ross was talking tough on Iran, implying that President Obama was seriously considering the possibility of military action to stop Iran from making a nuclear weapon. ... In an address two weeks ago to the Brookings Institution, however, Secretary of Defense Panetta laid out four reasons why an attack on Iran is a bad idea." (12/19/11)
