In a shocking but trustworthy report, a Kuwaiti newspaper asserts today (March 1, 2015) that President Barack Obama once threatened to shoot down Israeli jets if they went through with a plan to target Iranian nuclear sites, the Daily Caller website reports.
Citing "well-placed sources," Al-Jarida claims that in 2014, the Israeli government made plans to attack Iran when it heard that the United States and Iran were on the verge of striking a secret nuclear deal behind Israel's back. The decision was made after Israel learned the terms of the deal were supposedly "a threat to Israel's security."
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu allegedly came to the decision after four nights of deliberation with commanders, and Israeli jets even managed experimental test flights in Iranian airspace after evading Iranian radars.
But when an Israeli official with good ties to the Obama administration revealed the planned airstrikes, Obama threatened to shoot down the Israeli jets, thus foiling the Israeli attack.
