(Worthy News) - Iran's leaders on Tuesday revealed the existence of a previously undisclosed weapons bunker stocked with ballistic missiles, adding to President Obama's diplomatic headaches in the region at a time when tensions between Iran and Saudi Arabia have soared to new heights.

The revelation prompted fresh hand-wringing within the Obama administration, which has awkwardly sought to avoid taking sides since the regional saber rattling ratcheted up over the weekend with Riyadh’s execution of a prominent Shiite cleric and the subsequent sacking of the Saudi Embassy in Tehran.

The weapons bunker is also the latest provocation by Iran since the much-touted signing of a nuclear deal last summer, provocations that have provided more ammunition to critics both at home and in the Middle East who say President Obama’s outreach to Tehran has done nothing to curb Iran’s aggressive policies in the region.

  1. I think it is time we all stop pretending that Obama didn't know all these things, all along. Who is in a better position to have known? If we know it now, he knew it then. It's time we stop pretending that Obama isn't just what Islam considers him to be - a good friend - to them. Israel knows it. Many in Europe know it, can recognize it. Why not we Americans?
