Hersh: Plans already in place to attack Lebanon before the Israeli soldiers kidnapped
As if we didn't already guess this was true, here's proof from the New Yorker and Seymour Hersh that the Bush admin was informed in advance and gave the "green light" to Israel's military strikes against Hezbollah w/ plans drawn up months before 2 Israeli soldiers were seized. The US considered Israel's actions as a necessary prerequisite for a possible strike against Iran, and earlier this summer Israeli officials visited Washington to brief the BushCo on its plan to respond to any Hezbollah provocation and to "find out how much the US would bear". But sadly, as was the case w/invading and occupying Iraq, no real plans of what to do except attack/ invade Lebanon were made by the US or Israel.
