Inhofe: Iran Will Be Able to Hit US With WMD by 2015

Many politicians in both parties are worried about Iran’s nuclear weapons capabilities. And Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., put it in stark terms during a speech Monday, the Tulsa World reports.

"We know, and it is not even classified for me to tell you today, that Iran will have the capability of delivering a weapon of mass destruction to western Europe and the eastern United States by 2015," said Inhofe, the second-ranking member on the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee. "I see that as the most imminent threat to this country right now. So that is a problem we are going to have deal with."

Separately, Inhofe said the United States must strengthen its alliances around the world with nations such as Israel.
