Obama: “Window of Opportunity” for Iran Attack Opens in June
February 26, 2013
The Times of Israel reports that president Obama will tell Israel’s prime minister Netanyahu during a visit next month that a “window of opportunity” for a military strike on Iran will open in June if current diplomatic efforts fail.
Israeli TV reported on Monday that the United States will tell Israel to “sit tight” on the sidelines and keep a low profile as it attacks Iran’s nuclear facilities.
Obama set the June attack deadline last year. At the time it was rumored that Israel would attack Iran prior to the U.S. presidential election in November.
Iran recently met with the International Atomic Energy Agency to discuss its nuclear program. The United States and Israel have repeatedly claimed Iran is working on a nuclear weapon despite a lack of conclusive evidence.
