Condoleeza Rice according to the Jerusalem Post:
We don’t say yes or no to Israeli military operations. Israel is a sovereign country,” she said in response to a question from The Politico Web site as to whether she was concerned that America would be blamed in the case of an IDF attack on the Islamic Republic.
Her statements come amid speculation that Washington has warned Jerusalem not to attack Iran and media reports that the US told Israel it doesn’t have the green light to use Iraqi airspace for any such attack.
Col Pat Lang says the issue of Israel attacking Iran still seems unresolved.
Artfully worded. What she said was that the US does not take responsibility for Israeli decisions. What it does not say is whether the US will accept Israeli overflight of Iraq going to and coming from strikes on Iran.
