Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is playing a prominent role in the first and only debate between vice presidential candidates Joe Biden and Paul Ryan.

Ryan, running mate of GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, accused Biden and President Barack Obama of ignoring Netanyahu and giving Iran the time to forge ahead toward building a nuclear weapon. Biden dismissed him and said Obama's met with "Bibi" dozens of times. Ryan's accusations, Biden said, "is a bunch of stuff," or "malarkey."

Biden said the Iranians don't yet have a nuclear weapon and called any claim to the contrary "loose talk." In a speech to the United Nations last month, Netanyahu said Iran was ready to move to the final stage of making a nuclear weapon.
