America Breaking News: Senate Majority Urges Obama to Press Iran Over Nuclear Program

A majority of senators have urged President Barack Obama to raise pressure on Iran over its disputed nuclear program by toughening sanctions and renewing the option to use military force while also exploring diplomatic solutions. U.S. diplomatic posts in 19 cities in the Mideast and Africa will remain closed for the rest of the week amid intercepted "chatter" about terror threats, which lawmakers briefed on the information likened to intelligence picked up before the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. Chris Boyce, who spent 25 years in prison for espionage, says U.S. intelligence agencies want Edward Snowden in Russia because it helps discredit him.
