Israel to Keep US in Dark on Possible Iran Strike

Ad Feedback

Israel will not alert the U.S. ahead of time if it decides to attack Iran's nuclear facilities, one U.S. intelligence official told The Associated Press.

Israeli officials explained the move is intended to protect the United States. That way, the U.S. can't be held responsible for failing to stop an Israeli attack.

But Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., who recently met with Israel's prime minister and defense minister in Israel, suggested the move also stemmed from the Jewish state's frustration with the Obama administration.

"I got the sense that Israel is incredibly serious about a strike on their (Iran's) nuclear weapons program," Rogers told CNN on Monday. "It's their calculus that the administration ... is not serious about a real military consequence to Iran moving forward."

"They believe they're going to have to make a decision on their own, given the current posture of the United States," he added.

American officials have been working for months to convince Israel an attack would only be a temporary setback to Iran's nuclear program.
