ImageWASHINGTON (AP) — The top U.S. military official says he believes Iran now has enough fissile material to build a nuclear bomb.

Adm. Mike Mullen issued that assessment after the world's nuclear watchdog said last week that it was wrong in earlier reports and now has evidence that Iran has enough enriched uranium to make a nuclear weapon.

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said, "We think they do, quite frankly," when asked Sunday about the International Atomic Energy Agency assessment.

Mullen said Sunday a nuclear armed Iran would be a "very, very bad outcome." He spoke on CNN's "State of the Union."
