Huh?

Reader comment on item: Panetta Predicts an Israeli Strike on Iran

Submitted by Dan Lenard (United States), Feb 4, 2012 at 13:47

Dr. Pipes,

Nothing like a little "wiggle room?" All of these scenarios make sense but I find it curious that a standing Secretary of Defense would divulge the plans of an ally. Indeed, it acts a as a point of intimidation to the Mullahs, but it also gives the Mullahs some super propaganda points. The US feigns innocence while the nut jobs in Teheran can keep scapegoating Israel. How nice.

I despise this President's policies. He is not serving the interests of our country by toying with Israel and Iran. I hope that this is not lost on the electorate in Florida and Brooklyn.
