(CNN) - Israeli sources tell CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that the White House rejected Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s request to meet with President Obama later this month to discuss Iran’s nuclear program.

"President Obama said here five years ago, if another nation cannot or will not take action, we will," Brennan said. "And it is an unfortunate fact that to save many innocent lives we are sometimes obliged to take lives – the lives of terrorists who seek to murder our fellow citizens."
