President-elect Barack Obama on Friday repeated his campaign assertion that Teheran "is a genuine threat to US national security." Obama told reporters at a Washington press conference that he would have more to say about the Iranian nuclear program after he is inaugurated. Obama also touted a "practical, pragmatic approach" to concerns about its nuclear development and said once more that he believes diplomacy should be put into play more than it has been in the past.
