McCain uses speech to pro-Israel group to criticize Obama

WASHINGTON. - John McCain is raising the specter of a nuclear Iran as he positions himself for a presidential election campaign against Barack Obama.
     
In a speech to a pro-Israel group in Washington this morning, the Republican candidate again criticized Obama for his willingness to meet with leaders of Iran and other U.S. foes without
preconditions.
     
McCain says all Obama would get would be "an earful of anti-Semitic rants and a worldwide audience" for Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
     
McCain says the Clinton administration tried to engage Iran for two years, even lifting some sanctions, but got nothing for it. He argues Obama is naive to think meeting the Iranian would yield any progress.
     
McCain says the pressure on Iran should be turned up with targeted sanctions.
