Barak to Cheney: All options should remain on table against Iran

Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak says all the options should remain on the table concerning Iran's nuclear program. Barak met with visiting US Vice President Dick Cheney late Sunday. Barak said Israel believes the time is still right for sanctions against Iran to prevent it from getting nuclear weapons. But a statement from the Israeli defense minister's office quoted him as adding, "none of the options should be taken off the table." Israel believes Iran is trying to make nuclear bombs. Iran denies that. Cheney has also spoken of the threat Iran poses. The US vice president winds up his trip to Israel and the Palestinian territories Monday morning by meeting Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert for the second time in three days.
