The first report in Foreign Policy quotes anonymous American officials saying that Israel has been given access to airbases by Iran's northern neighbor Azerbaijan from which Israel could launch air strikes or at least drones and search and rescue aircraft.
The second report from Bloomberg, based on a leaked congressional report, said that Iran's nuclear facilities are so dispersed that it is "unclear what the ultimate effect of a strike would be…" A strike could delay Iran as little as six months, a former official told the researchers.
"It seems like a big campaign to prevent Israel from attacking," analyst Yoel Guzansky at the Institute for National Security Studies told ABC News. "I think the [Obama] administration is really worried Jerusalem will attack and attack soon. They're trying hard to prevent it in so many ways."
The first leak is absolutely egregious because it is telegraphing Israels attack plan and will probably get a lot of IDF pilots and maybe even Azerbaijani Air Force ground crews killed. I could see Iran preemptively striking these airbases before the IDF can get their planes in place. They could also mass their air defenses in the northern part of the country and be ready for a strike they know will come. That move put a lot of lives in danger.
Also the idea of a tie between Azerbaijan and Israel is probably quite a state secret if it is true and Obama just ruined that so he could get the Jewish vote to win re-election. I'm hoping this is a smoke screen by Israel to throw Iran off and maybe get them to put their anti-aircraft missiles in the wrong area or maybe goad the Iranians into striking first. If it isn't and Obama leaked this info then it would have to be one of the worst betrayals of an ally in US history.
The second leak was just Congress saying that Israel shouldn't strike Iran because you only put their nuclear program back by 6 months. I mean it is still better than negotiating with Iran while they have their program going full blast. I mean Israel doesn't care about US elections they only want to prevent a second Holocaust and a nuclear arms race in the Middle East. I am seriously hoping that this is just a ruse and not Obama selling Israel out to insure the Jewish vote in November.
