Former CIA and NSA director Michael Hayden said on Sunday that Iran is "far too close" to obtaining an atomic weapon and the international community must now push back the threshold of a possible weaponized nuclear Iran.

In an interview with "Fox News Sunday," the retired US general said the recently-signed interim deal on Iran's nuclear issue diverges from prior agreements with the United Nations that called for dismantling the Islamic Republic's entire nuclear program and shipping materials out of the country.

"We have accepted Iranian uranium enrichment," Hayden said, adding that this signaled a new "red line" for what the US would accept in regard to Tehran's nuclear activities.
