Video: Joint Chiefs Chairman worries Iran will miscalculate, says sharing intelligence with Israel

Here's the Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, Martin Dempsey, who says that he worries that Iran will miscalculate regarding US resolve. Dempsey also says that the US is sharing intelligence on Iran with Israel.

Let's go to the videotape.

There would be much less danger of an Iranian miscalculation if the Obama administration were not sending mixed messages.
According to CNN, the Pentagon is pushing back against suggestions that Panetta has speeded up the US prediction of when Iran could have a nuclear weapon.

"Nothing has changed about the views he has expressed - repeatedly - of the concerns about where Iran is headed and about the approach the United States and the international community need to continue to take," Pentagon spokesman Captain John Kirby said Tuesday.

"I think what he meant in general was they could have the nuclear weapons capability in a year, I think was how he captured that," Kirby said. "We all recognize that is a difficult process - could be that fast, might not be that fast."
It sounds like the US is going to wait for Iran to develop nuclear weapons before attacking. And we've heard repeatedly that Obama and Panetta really don't want to attack.

What could go wrong?
