    Cyberattacks on Iranian nuclear program were a US-Israel effort started under the Bush administration and continued by President Obama, The New York Times reports.

    The confirmation from Obama-administration officials that Stuxnet was a joint US-operation comes from extracts from a forthcoming book, Confront and Conceal: Obama's Secret Wars and Surprising Use of American Power, by David Sanger that's due to be published next week.
    I guess the term "State Secrets" no longer applies to the USA.

    Although I am a great fan of this type of warfare I wish the U.S. would not admit to such things; it make retaliation almost a certainty.

    Exactly.

    The question is whether the announcement was to bolster Obama's war on terror cred, or whether it was done because he wants to undermine the Israelis.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    Definitely yes to the first & a high probability of a yes to the second.
    The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    Yep, you and Zeus are right. The only thing Obama can point to as even remotely successful is his foreign policy. And he's certainly no fan of the Jooos.
    Starbuck is right too, deny deny deny.
