It’s disappointing to see the generally pro-Israel Times of London publishing Israel’s potential plans against Iran. While a fabulous scoop if accurate, the Times story can only be seen as helpful to the Islamic Republic. Personally, such stories fall under the zone of protection that includes troop movements, ships at sea, invasion dates.
Having said that, the story is a mighty-damaging leak to come out now. That falls on Israel. Obviously somebody in the know over there isn’t on the team. If they’re goal was to torpedo Israel’s military goals, they did a good job. If it’s a bluff to prompt diplomatic action, it’s likely to fail.
