WMNF Drive-Time News Monday | Listen to this entire show:
Hillary Clinton said today that "all options must remain on the table" if Iran does not comply with nuclear nonproliferation requirements.
In an article in Foreign Affairs Magazine, the New York senator says the U.S. should be prepared to offer incentives if Tehran curtails its nuclear weapons plans, renounces sponsorship of terrorism, supports Middle East peace and plays a constructive role in Iraq.
Clinton argues that the U.S. must make a serious diplomatic effort with Iran.
Also in the Foreign Affairs article, Clinton says if elected she would direct U.S. military leaders to come up with a plan within 60 days of her inauguration to "bring our troops home" from Iraq in a way that begins to restore stability in the region and replaces military force with new regional diplomatic initiative.
