"After interviewing many people with direct knowledge of internal government thinking, however, I’m highly confident that Netanyahu isn’t bluffing -- that he is in fact counting down to the day when he will authorize a strike against a half-dozen or more Iranian nuclear sites.
One reason I’m now more convinced is that Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak are working hard to convince other members of the Israeli cabinet that a strike might soon be necessary.

Goldberg ought to know. He has good access. He is a dual national and a reservist in the IDF. I have the "gut" feeling that this time Natanyahu is going all the way. His clock is running out and he knows that if BHO is re-elected Israel will suffer a massive loss of leverage in its ability to force America into war with Iran. Logic is logic. pl
