Report: Bush administration denies plan to bomb Iranian nuke lab
On the front page of Sundayâs New York Times, reporter David Sanger broke the story about the Bush Administration denying a plea by the Israeli government to provide sophisticated, deep penetration bombs to attack Iranâs underground nuclear enrichment facilities.
According to the story, the administration also rebuffed Israelâs plan to fly through U.S.-controlled Iraqi airspace to reach the Iranian site. Sanger reported that the Israelis had not proposed a specific date for an attack, and it was not clear how far along the planning was when the requests were made.
Sanger is the chief Washington correspondent for the New York Times, and that story and others are contained in his just published book, called, âThe Inheritance: The World Obama Confronts And the Challenges to American Power.â
Sanger spoke recently with WMNF. You can hear Part I of the interview by clicking on the audio link attached to this story.
Weâll have the second part of this interview later in the week.comments powered by Disqus
