Iran talks, Obamacare rollout dominate "Face the Nation"

(CBS News) -- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu joined Norah O'Donnell on "Face the Nation" Sunday, hours after talks in Geneva ended without an agreement to curb Iran's nuclear program.

"Iran gives practically nothing, and it gets a hell of a lot," Netanyahu said in his only Sunday interview.

"I'm expressing, as I said, not only the concerns of Israel but the concerns of many in the region. Some of them say it aloud, some say it behind closed doors, but I'll tell you this is the broad feeling here, broad feeling, that Iran might hit the jackpot here. And it's not good. It's not good for us, it's not good for America, it's not good for the Middle East, it's not good for Europe either," Netanyahu said.

The Israeli Prime Minister's outspoken criticism of the talks made headlines Sunday at ReutersBloombergLA Times, USA TodayPoliticoThe HillThe Jerusalem PostThe Wall Street JournalUnited Press InternationalAl JazeeraWashington Times, and Orlando Sentinel.

In an interview later in the program, Bob Schieffer sat down with Leon Panetta at the Panetta family home in Monterey, California to get the former Defense Secretary's take on the Iran discussions.

"Iran is a country that has promoted terrorism," Panetta told Bob Schieffer. "They've had a hidden enrichment facility that we had to find out about. So we've got to be skeptical and make sure that, even with some kind of interim agreement, that we know what the next steps are going to be in order to ensure that they really do stand by their word."

Panetta also had some candid advice for President Obama on the troubled Obamacare rollout.

"You cannot rely on the bureaucracies to do this kind of work. They're good people, they're dedicated, but very frankly, they're not the ones that really have the capability to in fact get this done," Panetta said.

"I would drive this out of the White House. I would have an ongoing task force, I'd have one person in charge of it, and I would meet every day to make sure that they're getting this straight, because I think the president's trust on this program is really going to be dependent on his ability to fix it."

In his appearance on "Face the Nation" Sunday, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said President Obama's apology to people who were being dropped from their healthcare plans was "not enough."

"When you make a mistake, you should own up to it and apologize for it and I think people give you credit for that. The fact is that the President didn't tell the truth," Christie said. "It turns out not to be true that people can keep their insurance policies no matter what, that they can keep their doctor no matter what. And we need to confront that issue and the President needs to deal with it in a head-on way."
