Israel lines up landing sites for upcoming Iran raid

Counter The irresistible force draws ever nearer to the immovable object. Woe to him who stands between.

UPDATE APRIL 27 from DEBKAFile
Israel’s Defense Minister Ehud Barak arrived in Washington Thursday, April 19 with tough questions for US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta about the administration’s dialogue with Iran, on the lines of, “What’s going on? Is there a deal? Don’t tell me what you have settled with the Iranians, just your minimal demands, your bottom line.” The questions reflected Israel’s concern at being kept in the dark about US-Iranian back-track negotiations and American concessions, including President Barak Obama’s willingness to yield on full transparency and international nuclear watchdog inspections at Iran’s nuclear sites. According to our sources, they focused on the fresh intelligence reaching the US and the International Atomic Energy Agency that Iran has begun moving military nuclear facilities to secret locations not covered in the confidential deal evolving between the Obama administration and Tehran.

UPDATE AUGUST 6 2012
Now reports indicate that the existence of backup landing sites in Azerbaijan was leaked by the Obama administration in an attempt to head off any Israeli use of these sites.
