– The nation’s top military officer said on Sunday that a U.S. strike against Iran would go “a long way” to delaying its nuclear program but that he considered doing so his “last option” right now. “Military options would go a long way to delaying it,” Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters after speaking at a forum at Columbia University in New York. “That’s not my call. That’s going to be the president’s call,” he added. “But from my perspective … the last option is to strike right now.” (Reporting by Adam Entous; Editing by Jackie Frank)
