Clapper: 120,000 troops is a massive deployment

Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan presented a military plan at a meeting of top national security officials that would send as many as 120,000 US troops to the Middle East in the event that Iran strikes American forces in the region or speeds up its development of nuclear weapons, The New York Times reported. The Times said the plan, which does not call for a land invasion of Iran, was ordered in part by national security adviser John Bolton. CNN national security analyst James Clapper discusses with John Berman on New Day.
