Israelis Suspect Obama Media Leaks to Prevent Strike on Iran ABC NewsBy Alexander Marquardt | ABC News 6 hrs ago
JERUSALEM - Two reports today about Iran's nuclear program and the possibility of an Israeli military strike have analysts in Israel accusing the Obama administration leaking information to pressure Israel not to bomb Iran and for Iran to reach a compromise in upcoming nuclear talks.
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 Foreign Policy report by Mark Perry quotes an intelligence officer saying, "We're watching what Iran does closely But we're now watching what Israel is doing in Azerbaijan. And we're not happy about it."
If true, the deal with Azerbaijan "totally changes the whole picture," says Guzansky, making it far easier for Israel to strike faster and harder, rather than having to fly 2,200 miles to Iran and back over Iraqi airspace.

I wonder if ABC News will run this on their Nightly News. /never mind
The obamanation stabbing God’s chosen race in the back yet again. Obama will burn in the hottest places in hell for the evil he has done against God and his fellow man. The man is a monster and the most evil president America has suffered under. He is as evil as the most evil sitting in jail for murder and stealing and lying against humanity.
Yeah... but he’s pretty good at picking BBALL winners.
Let’s defy Obama and go on a fool’s errand for which we aren’t even equipped. Sounds like a plan.
If Obummer was a Wikileaker, Obummer would be under arrest for aiding and abetting and treason.
Because Obama needs to wait until late October to launch his own strike.
Checkmate ! You lose Precedent Erkel Mugabe !
Because Obama needs to wait until late October to launch his own strike...
Against which country?
No one will ever defeat Israel. Ever.
Israel does not need the US. We need them.
Hey Obama, your betraying and ratting out another nations secrete plans you may find to be a two way street. And I am sure MOSAD has more than a few unpleasant things in the offing they could drop and lead the trail right back to your white hut front stoop.
