U.S. National Security Advisor Tom Donilon shared Washington's contingency plans for a possible attack on Iran with Israel's PM, according to a senior American official.
The U.S. national security adviser has shared with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu the United States' contingency plans for a possible attack on Iran.
According to a senior American official, National Security Advisor Tom Donilon briefed Netanyahu on the plans during Donilon's visit to Israel two weeks ago. According to the official, who requested anonymity, Netanyahu hosted Donilon at a three-hour dinner. For part of the time, Israel's national security adviser, Yaakov Amidror, was on hand.
Donilon sought to make clear that the United States is seriously preparing for the possibility that negotiations will reach a dead end and military action will become necessary. He said reports of such preparations were not just a way to assuage Israel's concerns.

Only an insane administration would telecast their intentions..............
tom donilon? Gag me with a spoon.
What part of NATIONAL SECURITY is so hard to understand?
Or a totally dishonest one. I am sure the MILITARY has contingency plans, as I am equally sure obama would never agree to it.
Visions of Jimmy Carter’s Iran fiasco and $10 a gallon gasoline
As former SecDef Gates was reported to have said to NSC Donilon, “I recommend a new communications policy: Shut the F$X* up!”
Romney is in Israel. ‘Nuff said.
This pecker head will do anything to get reelected destroy this country is just a consequence.
announcements like these are just now popping up because Obama can't afford to lose the jewish voters he has and hopes to draw some back into the fold by getting a sprayed-on makeover to look like a tough guy.
Obama will never agree to an attack prior to the election. There is a serious risk the Navy will lose capital ships in the narrow confines of the Persian Gulf. Serious causalities will be political disaster and Obama will simply not do anything to jeopardize his reelection prospects.
Not to worry. Israel knows they can’t trust the Obama administration.
Another ‘leaky barrel’, over here. The ‘October Surprise’ is advance-televised.
SOmeone needs to slap the P*SS out of Donilon...THAN toss his ass in jail!
THAN=THEN (I do not type well when POd!
These Obammy Marxistsw leak more than Pelosi’d DEPENDS!
Another Donolin intel leak? One would have thought he’d knocked it off when he got caught.
This is so the Jews will support and vote for obamma.
Here is what, if anything, would happen: Bibi would tell Obamugabe that Israel won’t be waiting around for the Kenyan Commie to do anything...and Obamugabe sneered.
That’s good, it’ll give Zero something to discuss when he meets with Ahmedeadman.
“Hey Tom keep this national security sensitive between our countries,...we go red on November 6th or 8th, date unsure at this time. I know the timing is bad but we don’t want any discussion of this for political gain. For misdirection you can leak that we are eying Feb. Thanks again my trusted friend.”
IF this is true, he need summary trial & execution.
Intentions are obvious, Zero doesn’t want to lose the Jewish vote!
Intentions are obvious, Zero doesn’t want to lose the Jewish vote! That’s all!
