WASHINGTON – The chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff says the U.S. military has a plan to attack Iran, although he thinks a strike is probably a bad idea.

Adm. Mike Mullen, the nation’s highest-ranking military officer, has often warned that a military strike on Iran would have serious and unpredictable ripple effects around the Middle East. At the same time, he says the risk of Iran developing a nuclear weapon is unacceptable.

Mullen would not say which risk he thinks is worse. But he tells NBC’s “Meet The Press” that a military strike remains an option if need be.

And he says that, should it come to that, the military has a plan at hand. He didn’t elaborate.
