Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta on Wednesday aimed to reassure Israelis that the U.S. is resolved to prevent Iran's leaders from gaining nuclear arms.
Former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir, who clung throughout his life to the belief that Israel should hang on to territory and never trust an Arab regime, has died. He was 96 years old.
"Iran wants to annihilate us. I won't let that happen," he said, adding that he has not yet made up his mind about a preemptive strike.
