Newsweek magazine quoted Pentagon officials this week saying the US will “look the other way” regarding an impending Israeli airstrike on Iranian nuclear facilities and the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientists. This is despite Washington’s interest in preventing warfare in the region, according to the report.
The article alleges that Mossad Director Tamir Pardo’s was sent to Washington to determine what the consequences would be for Israel if the Jewish state bombed Iran over American objections, and that Israel has shared significant details of its plans with the US.
President Obama has consistently urged Israel to delay an attack, and wait for financial sanctions to deter Iran from creating atomic weapons.
