Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stressed that the purpose of Iran's nuclear program is to build a nuclear bomb rather than use enriched uranium for other purposes by comparing Iran to Timothy McVeigh on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday.
"There are legitimate, peaceful purposes for enriching this uranium," said host Candy Crowley, speaking to why Iran's activities are allowed under international agreements.
"You think so? You think so, Candy?" Netanyahu said. "That's like Timothy McVeigh walking into a shop in Oklahoma City and saying, 'I'd like to tend my garden. I'd like to buy some fertilizer.' 'How much do you want?' 'O, I don' know, 20,000 pounds.' Come on, we know that they're working toward a weapon."
