David Fulghum over at Aviation Week is one of the capital’s top-notch defense reporters, although the lede on his latest story might leave you scratching your flight helmet:
Evidence is mounting that the U.S. defense community and the Obama administration view 2013 as the likely window for a bombing attack on Iran’s nuclear and missile facilities.
…fascinating. Interesting. But better not read the second sentence:
It could be earlier, timed to use the chaos of the Syrian government’s fall to disguise such an attack, or later, if international negotiations with Iran stretch out without failing completely.
Nonetheless, the full story is some typically fine Fulghum tea-leaf reading…
