Polls in the sh*tter? Time for a military strike
Good god. Larisa at Raw Story has a breaking item about plans for a military strike on Iran that has Pentagon officials worried. Weep for this country. What is this sick man in the Oval Office doing?
Concern is building among the military and the intelligence community that the US may be preparing for a military strike on Iran, as military assets in key positions are approaching readiness, RAW STORY has learned.
…Intelligence sources confirm hearing the allegations of a June attack, but have been unable to fully confirm that such an attack is in the works. Both the New Yorker and the Washington Post have previously reported that the Pentagon is studying military options on Iran.
All sources, however, agree that given the administrationâ€™s interest in regime change, an attack on Iran is likely, regardless of international support or UN backing. Furthermore, all sources agree that [Retired Air Force Colonel and former faculty member at the National War College Sam] Gardinerâ€™s scenario is the most probable, including an estimated duration and “pause” assessment.
…As previously reported by Raw Story, a terrorist organization known as Mujahedeen-e Khalq (MEK) is being used on the ground in Iran by the Pentegon, bypassing US intelligence channels. The report was subsequently covered by the Asia Times (Article).
Military and intelligence sources now say no Presidential finding exists on MEK ops. Without a presidential finding, the operation circumvents the oversight of the House and Senate Intelligence committees.
