Stalking Iran

Seymour Hirsh of the New Yorker say that Israel and the US have a co-ordinated plan to go after Iran.

“Naturally Jerusalem and Washington have a common interest in defeating Hizbullah within the framework of the war on terror and efforts to curb the Iranian threat, but there was no operational coordination between the two countries,” Danny Ayalon, Israel’s ambassador to the US, said.
Why would there be operational co-ordination? The US has no troops in the fight.

Strategic co-ordination? Absolutely. i.e. The US very likely knew the general outlines of the plan and was also given progress reports. Which allowed the US to properly handle the UN.
