Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu planned airstrikes targeting Irans nuclear program, but called them off following a request from United States President Barack Obama, General (res.) Giora Eiland has reportedly revealed.
The Mida website quoted statements reportedly made by Eiland, the former head of the National Security Council, in a closed conference on defense.
According to Eiland, The Prime Minister thought that we had reached the point where a decision had to be made on Iran, and he planned an attack.
In principle, Israel does not need American authorization for military action, unless the Americans demand unequivocally that we refrain from an action, he continued.
That is what happened in this case, he said. Netanyahu presented his plan to American leaders, and was told that it was not acceptable to them. This led him to shelve the plan.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
While I appreciate the information being released, our government is becoming a sieve for information that would’ve previously been considered classified.
Netanyahu seems to be the only foreign leader who listens to Obama.
figures...Odungo has three more years to go....he’s got to have something in reserve for next year as a smoke screen
There's been more security leaks under the 0bama regime in one week than in eight years under Bush. This is NOT by accident.
Aytollah John Brennan as head of CIA? ROFL!!! Hahaahaaaaa Can anyone say with a straight face that we're 'lookin' good'???
The dorkball will pick a muzzie over our military or Israel every time.
Perhaps libs will eventually figure out the root cause.
Then again, perhaps not.
Israel must stop telling obama anything, and do what is best for Israel.
obama hates Israel, and is doing whatever he can do to discredit and or destroy them.
And meanwhile he’s still using our Air Force to protect Iran’s nuclear war prepArations work.
And perhaps the last one who should listen to Obama.
Israel is small, however, and we need American, even with someone as useless as Obama in charge.
It’s an Israeli general who is spilling the beans in this case.
The target is Israel.
I don't know if Broken Arrow is the proper term but it is how i would classify the current administration.
