Obama: My security decisions on Iran – only what’s right for America

US President Barack Obama said Sunday night on CBS “60 Minutes” that he understands and agrees with Netanyahu’s insistence that Iran not be allowed to obtain nuclear weapons as this would threat both countries, the world in general and kick off an arms race. But he then added: "When it comes to our national security decisions – any pressure that I feel is simply to do what's right for the American people.
