The demands: "Stop all uranium production, remove all enriched material [from the country] and close the illegal nuclear facility in Qom.
"We believe that now more than ever, in light of Iran's progress, it is important [that the international community] tighten the economic sanctions and make Iran face a credible military option."
Here you have it all: Since Rohani won the presidential election, Iran has continued to expand its enrichment program and develop its ballistic missile force. And a US official gives credence to words that suggest Rohani might be going in a different direction.
It's difficult to imagine that the US official cited above, and his associates, could have failed to note this:
"Iran could develop and test an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching the United States by 2015, a new U.S. intelligence report released and declassified for publication on Friday has determined.
Surely better if those ballistic missiles not have nuclear tips. Wouldn't you think?
