Obama pushes back on imminent military decision on Iran

US President Barack Obama pushed back on Tuesday against suggestions that Washington was on the cusp of making a decision about possible military action against Iran, pledging to take a 'sober' approach to dealing with Iran's nuclear program.
Amid mounting speculation that Israel could attack Iran's nuclear sites in coming months, Obama said that American politicians "beating the drums of war" had a responsibility to explain the costs and benefits of military action.He said the notion that the United States needed to make a choice in coming weeks or months was "not borne out by facts."
