Speak Hopefully and Carry an Unbelievably Small Stick

Iran tests ballistic missiles capable of being equipped with nuclear warheads. So naturally:

The administration had additional diplomatic and technical work to complete before announcing any new sanctions related to the [Iranian] missile program, but the delay was not a result of pressure from Tehran, said deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes.

Why the delay for merely symbolic sanctions "limited to a small number of individuals and companies?"

Is the State Department unable to find where they put the unbelievably small, limited kind of sanctions?
