EXCLUSIVE: President Obama Sending ‘Direct Messages’ to Iran

Barack Obama / AP

Barack Obama wants the world to know that the United States has been "very straightforward" with Iran regarding the presence of Iranian cargo vessels off the coast of Yemen.

"What we've said to them is that, ‘If there are weapons delivered to factions within Yemen that could threaten navigation, that's a problem,’" Obama said in an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews. "And we're not sending them obscure messages. We send them very direct messages about it."
