    Jerusalem May 15, 2009 (ANI): Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) chief Leon Panetta was sent on a secret mission to Israel to warn its leaders not to launch a surprise attack on Iran without notifying Washington.

    As Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli Prime Minister, prepares to visit Washington, it emerged yesterday that Panetta, went to Israel two weeks ago to seek assurances from Netanyahu and Defence Minister Ehud Barak that their hawkish new Government would not attack Iran without alerting Washington.

    Concerns have been rising that Netanyahu could launch a strike on Tehran’s atomic programme, in the same way that Israel hit Saddam Hussein’s Osirak reactor in 1981.

    According to The Times, Israel has been preparing for such an eventuality. It has carried out long-distance manoeuvres and is due to hold its largest civil defence drills this summer.

    The country’s leaders reportedly told Panetta that they did not “intend to surprise the US on Iran

    Hard to tell the good guys from the bad guys in this game.

    If Israel told Washington they were going to bomb Iran, Obama would warn Iran.

    It seems to me that Israel would love to live in peace. But people fire rockets into their country all the time. Not to mention Iran has been threatining to wipe Israel off the map. Now I dont know about you but I think they have every right to defend themselves against these people.I dont see how you can blame Israel when they are surrounded by people who want to destroy them. This administration is obviosly pro terrorist and Palistinian. I say this based on their actions. I think it would be in Israels best interest to tell the US to take a hike. They will have to confront Iran by themselves.
