Dempsey: ‘We Have a Range of Options’ Between Iran Deal and War


Wednesday at the Senate Armed Services Committee on the Iran nuclear agreement, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chair Gen. Martin Dempsey said “we have a range of options” between accepting the Obama administrations Iran nuclear agreement and going to war with Iran as both Secretary of State John Kerry and President Barack Obama have said several times in defense of their deal.

Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) asked, “Is that what you have told the president, is that we either take this deal or go to war?”

Dempsey replied, “No at no time did that come up in our conversation nor did I make that comment … I can tell you that we have a range of options and I always present them.”
