Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel (L) and Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon speaking to IDF soldiers, April 23, 2013. Later Hagel wondered why he hadn't been told about the Syrian chemical attacks on his visit.

And let us not kid ourselves, if at that point the Administration is not prepared to launch a military operation against Iran, it will be doing precisely what it’s doing today about Syria. Kerry will belittle the evidence, Hagel will express doubts about the source of the analysis and Obama will keep mum about the whole thing.

As always, we are on our own and we have no one to turn to other than our Father in Heaven. I’m suggesting this not as an expression of despair, folks, but as strategy.

  1. It would certainly serve Yori and his readership well to take his own advice, take off the blinders, and to stop whitewashing the truth and ignoring reality when it collides with the facts.
