Nuclear tensions between the United States and Iran have intensified in the past week — at the same time the relationship between the U.S. and Israel has grown somewhat strained. The two issues are very much connected, and "GMA" anchor George Stephanopoulos had the exclusive opportunity to ask Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about them. Here is what Netanyahu had to say about the threat posed by Iran: "I said to then-Senator Obama, all the issues that will flood his desk will one day be pushed aside by one overriding issue and that is if Iran attempts to develop atomic bombs. Because they could very well either use it or threaten to use it or threaten to give it to terrorists or even give them a crude device with fissionable material that can be put in a container ship. And this could come to Manhattan or to any port in the United States or in Europe or, for that matter, in Israel."  So tonight, we ask: Is it time for President Obama to adopt a more aggressive stance towards Iran? Embedded below is a clip from the interview.
