    So much for secret operations?!?

    Makes you wonder if it's true...

    I think the 1984 US Womens Gymnastics team would have a better shot at destabilizing Iran.

    It could be our entire fleet and Iran wouldn't give a crap. They know we dont have the political clout to mount an operation against their country.

    De-stabilize? Doesn't something need to be stable in the first place for this to succeed?

    Presidential approval eh? This s/b good. More crap we don't need to be involved with.

    btw - secrets are when you don't tell anybody...................... at least in the normal world. Apparently in the presidential world, it's broadcast on the news.

    Just to point out a simple fact here.

    Disclosure of classified information to the public without written authorization is punishable by 20 years to life in maximum (Pound me in the ass) federal prison.

    So, if you read where any of these "Sources" are arrested and thrown in prison then you will know this is true.

    Or, if no sources are arrested then you know it's disinformation, which means we're just fucking with the Iranians to get them paranoid. Since their leadership is ALREADY paranoid they will end up arresting innocent people and doing stuff that will piss off their people and could lead to their downfall.

    It's certainly reassurring to realise that America's current foriegn policy is based upon an old "Get Smart" script.

    Wait, are you saying the media didn't hunt this information down, they just accepted it at face value and made it news? That's impossible, I won't believe it. Next you will tell me their in bed with both political parties and they only post news that will help or hurt a specific party depending on their own political agenda. I TELL YOU I WILL NOT HEAR IT!

    Axx makes a good point, the media doesn't get any info unless either the Democrats or the Republicans chooses to give it to them.

    There's a darker aspect to this as well.

    If it IS true, and someone at CIA leaked it then it's a sign of a civil war inside of the CIA. There was one going on in the late 1990s too, which is why it was so easy for 9/11 to happen.

    If I was the President I would fire EVERYBODY at CIA and close it down and start a new foriegn intelligence/direct action agency and fold Special Operations Command into it, taking that away from the military.

    Seriously, no honest CIA agent would ever speak to a reporter on the record.
