US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Monday the Obama administration's nearly yearlong effort to engage Iran has fallen short and new sanctions are needed to press the Iranian leadership to provide more information about its suspect nuclear program. She said the administration had offered Iran a chance to participate in meaningful discussions about its nuclear activities and intentions or face fresh penalties for defiance in line with the dual-track, carrot-and-stick approach. That dual effort, though, has "produced very little," she said, adding that "additional pressure is going to be called for" to get results.
