This looks like part of the Hagel roll out

Washington Post:

New U.S. sanctions take aim at Iran’s industrial infrastructure

They don't look all that tough on paper, and are probably less so as a practical matter, but the headlines are probably intended to deflect from Hagel's softness on Iran.  You combine is wimpy posture on Iran with his hostility toward Israel and the administration felt it needed to act tough to try to get Hagel approved.  I think he would be a terrible Secretary of Defense which is probably what Obama wanted.  He is a classic RINO on defense issues.
