Posted on 03/01/2015 9:36:33 AM PST by tcrlaf
The Bethlehem-based news agency Maan has cited a Kuwaiti newspaper report Saturday, that US President Barack Obama thwarted an Israeli military attack against Iran's nuclear facilities in 2014 by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.
According to Al-Jarida, the Netanyahu government took the decision to strike Iran some time in 2014 soon after Israel had discovered the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Irans nuclear program and were about to sign an agreement in that regard behind Israel's back.
The report claimed that an unnamed Israeli minister who has good ties with the US administration revealed the attack plan to Secretary of State John Kerry, and that Obama then threatened to shoot down the Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.
Former US diplomat Zbigniew Brzezinski, who enthusiastically campaigned for Obama in 2008, called on him to shoot down Israeli planes if they attack Iran. They have to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Are we just going to sit there and watch? said the former national security advisor to former President Jimmy Carter in an interview with the Daily Beast.
We have to be serious about denying them that right, he said. If they fly over, you go up and confront them. They have the choice of turning back or not. No one wishes for this but it could be a 'Liberty' in reverse.

We speculated for years on FR that Obama might order the USAF to stop an Israeli attack on Iran. If this is true, NOW WE KNOW.
This also explains why the Democrats have been in complete panic mode over Netanyahu's speech to Congress.
That would be the first time ever that Obama found the guts to actually do something — if Israel attacked Iran. Apparently the Muslim world can just massacre all the Christians and Jews as far as he cares.
Thanks for the notification, I was reading where someone posted the original article this morning from this site, Ma’an or however it is.
Hear that thump on the floor?
That’s me LMFAO!!
This is why I expect any Israeli strike to consist almost entirely of drones. Necessity is the mother of invention and they already lead the world in drone technology.
Kuwaiti paper claims unnamed Israeli minister with good ties with the US administration ‘revealed the attack plan to John Kerry.’

Ummm ... you know how Muslims lie! They like to invent conspiracy theories. They even believe “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” too ... LOL ...
The Protocols of the Elders of Zion
A “PEOPLE” who believe this kind of garbage can’t be trusted with anything! ... :-) ...
Knowing Zbigniew Brzezinski, this is 100% believable. I hated him.
Could this be what Drudge tweeted about when he said OBAMA was worried about something becoming public?
So Obama is now providing air defense for the Iranian nuclear program.
a) Weakens America/AmericansThere are NO counter examples.
b) Distances America's allies
c) Strengthens America's enemies
d) Serves Islam
e) Harms Israel
Or some combination of the above.
And yet the world doesn’t see who this guy is. It is truly mind-boggling. He would actually order the killing of Israeli military pilots.
I would hope that someone between Obama and the men who would actually shoot down the jets would have the sense and nerve to disobey the traitor-in-chief.
We need more confirmation on this. Even for Obama, it is almost too much to believe.
I also had those feelings! I include his spawn.
There are, but only in the twisted, make-believe world of his sycophantic apologists.
But it sure makes you wonder with all the purging of command and control people in out military all the brass he has removed
All for the glory of Obama.
