Obama revealed the existence of secret Israeli bases in Azerbaijan.
The Obama administration undoubtedly released classified intelligence assessments and documents that detail Israel’s most sensitive military zones. They released staging grounds (air bases) and logistics in Azerbaijan where Israel Defense could easily strike Iran. They have a secret relationship with Azerbaijan or at least, they had. The information was leaked through the Foreign Policy Magazine, which also named Israeli officials who manage the secret relationship with Azerbaijan.

Two weeks ago, Obama’s administration leaked to the NY Times the results of the Pentagon’s war games which predicted that an Israeli strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities would draw the US into a wider regional war with a loss of hundreds of American forces. In other words, if Israel acts, they will be responsible for the death of our forces. The Times had specifics about the location, date, parameters and some of the participants in the war game. The administration wanted to be sure there was no question the leak was official and it was a message.
Obama has no intention of preventing Iran from getting the bomb. Don’t listen to his words, watch what he does. He’s selling snake oil.
