Iran's Nuclear Development and the Prospects for War

Hosted by

A meeting today in Washington will set the state for efforts to get tougher UN sanctions against Iran's enrichment of nuclear fuel. If diplomacy doesn't work, what are the prospects for military action? Could the US live with a nuclear-armed Iran as it did with the Soviet Union? Also, an update on Iraq and, on Reporter's Notebook, wherever he is, Americans know about public messages from Osama bin Laden.  But now a public message to Osama has been released by one of his teachers.  We hear about a powerful reprimand.

US Defense Secretary Robert Gates (R) bids farewell to French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner following their talks at the Pentagon in Washington yesterday. Kouchner is in the US to meet with US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and to attend the United Nations General Assembly in New York. France has recently been leading a drive within the European Union for tougher sanctions on Iran that it has said could be adopted outside of the UN.
