President George W Bush Backs Israeli Plan for Strike on Iran

President George W Bush has told the Israeli government that he may be prepared to approve a future military strike on Iranian nuclear facilities if negotiations with Tehran break down, according to a senior Pentagon official. Despite the opposition of his own generals and widespread scepticism that America is ready to risk the military, political and economic consequences of an airborne strike on Iran, the president has given an “amber light” to an Israeli plan to attack Iran’s main nuclear sites with long-range bombing sorties, the official told The Sunday Times. “Amber means get on with your preparations, stand by for immediate attack and tell us when you’re ready,” the official said.
Sure the article goes on to say that Israel can expect no help from us (behind the scenes help, of course), and the light may never go green. But come on folks. W is licking his chops ready to strike - either directly or through an intermediary.

Where is the outrage Congress? Where is the outrage?
