Netanyahu planning to attack Iran: CIA officer

Israel is certainly planning to launch an attack on Iran before the September General Assembly vote on Palestine.



Israel is certainly planning to launch an attack on Iran before the September General Assembly vote on Palestine.
The ex-CIA official went on to predict that the
Israeli air force would attack "Natanz and other nuclear
facilities to degrade their capabilities".

"The Iranians will strike back where they can: Basra,
Baghdad," effectively forcing the US to "jump into the fight"
with attacks on Iranian targets.

"Our special forces are already looking at Iranian
targets in Iraq and across the border (in Iran) which we would
strike. What we`re facing here is an escalation, rather than
a planned out-and-out war... it`s a nightmare scenario," he
said.

He warned that the US does not have enough troops in
the Middle East to fight such a war and "we are looking into
the abyss".

In September, the Palestinian side has decided to move
the UN General Assembly to seek recognition for their state.

Baer spoke on the provocative KPFK Los Angeles show
Background Briefing, hosted by Ian Masters.

He didn`t quote any sources for his prediction of an
Israeli attack, but the few he cited were all Israeli security
figures who have publically warned that Netanyahu was adamant
to strike Iran, such as former Mossad chief Meir Dagan.
