Hagel: Iran, North Korea can't nuke U.S.

(Times of Israel) Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Thursday that neither Iran nor North Korea is capable of attacking the United States with a missile armed with a nuclear warhead.

North Korea has acknowledged it is working on such a capability and has threatened to use it. US missile defenses are positioned in the Pacific in anticipation of a possible North Korean missile launch in coming days.
