Michael Hayden, former head of the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Security Agency, said Iran is “far too close to a nuclear weapon” following its interim agreement with world powers. The deal allowed Iran to continue enriching uranium to 5 percent.

“At the end of the day, Iran is going to be a nuclear threshold state,” Hayden told Fox News.

“We have accepted Iranian nuclear enrichment,” he said. “What we have to do is push that threshold back as far as possible, and that will define whether this is a good idea or a bad idea.”
