Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel pledged to Israeli leaders Friday that the U.S. "will do what we must" to prevent the Jewish state's greatest fear of a nuclear-armed Iran. Hagel made the public pledge in a statement at talks in Jerusalem with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Hagel said, "I want to assure you of the United States' commitment to ensuring Iran does not get a nuclear weapon — and that America will do what we must to live up to that commitment."
