Former national security adviser to US President Barack Obama, James Jones, warned of Tehran's role in uprisings in the Middle East, saying "you can bet that Iran is affecting virtually everything and trying to play in every one of these countries where we’re having some difficulties … Iran is out there agitating things.” Jones made the comments in an interview with CNN aired on Sunday.

“(Iran) is flying under the radar right now because, you know, you don’t hear too much about their nuclear program because everyone else is focused elsewhere,” Jones stated.

He added that chaos reigning in the region is something the Iranian government is "reasonably happy with."
