TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. (AP) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says the Obama administration has concluded that the best way to pressure Iran to come clean on its nuclear ambitions is to impose sanctions aimed at the country's ruling elite.

Clinton said Monday that the final go-ahead on sanctions has not yet been made, but added that administration officials are moving in that direction after consulting widely with allies and other nations. Iran has balked at coming to an agreement on curtailing a nuclear program that the U.S. and other nations fear is aimed at building atomic weapons.

Before landing here en route to Hawaii for meetings with foreign ministers, Clinton told reporters aboard her State Department plane that sanctions would be aimed at Iran's top officials who make the decisions on nuclear matters.
