Ex-Israeli spy boss attacks Netanyahu and Barak over Iran

It is clear that there is an effort to start a war with Iran. And it's apparent there is more debate in Israel than in the U.S. Unfortunately no one is asking whether Obama will carry out such an attack if he is re-elected. Think that is far-fetched? So far this President has shown a willingness to act like another George Bush in many respects. Just as when he was elected in 2008, the President will be under pressure to appease the pro-Israel lobby, who want war. After coming into office Barack Obama broke just about every promise he made to the American people and did the bidding of the big business donors who financed his campaign:

"My major problem is that I have no faith in the current leadership, which must lead us in an event on the scale of war with Iran or a regional war," he said.

"I don't believe in either the prime minister or the defence minister. I don't believe in a leadership that makes decisions based on messianic feelings. Believe me, I have observed them from up close ... They are not people who I, on a personal level, trust to lead Israel to an event on that scale and carry it off.

"They are misleading the public on the Iran issue. They tell the public that if Israel acts, Iran won't have a nuclear bomb. This is misleading. Actually, many experts say that an Israeli attack would accelerate the Iranian nuclear race."
