With the aim of shaking Tehran’s commitment to its nuclear program, Bush also approved last fall secret operations to target Iranian influence in southern Lebanon, in western Afghanistan, in the Palestinian territories and inside Iran.
Schwarz’s reaction made me laugh:
I’m so pleased the president is finally going to “target Iranian influence” inside Iran. For too long we’ve sat here doing nothing while Iran hatches more and more nefarious schemes to influence itself. But finally we have a leader who understands we have to stop this. It’s a simple matter of self-defense!
