Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said in an interview Thursday that the Pentagon “absolutely” is preparing possible military options for a strike on Iran, in a rare public acknowledgment shortly after President Obama met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Panetta, in the interview with the National Journal, said the U.S. has been examining those options “for a long time.”

The comments come as Iran’s nuclear program and the possibility of a strike by Israel dominate the discussion in Washington and Jerusalem. Obama earlier in the week used a press conference to urge the international community to allow more time for sanctions to work — he repeatedly has cautioned against the “loose talk of war” in Washington.

Still, Panetta acknowledged that military planning is underway and noted that a U.S. strike would be more effective than an Israeli one.
