Top US officials are reporting that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu formally requested that Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta approve the sale of refueling aircraft and GBU-28 bunker buster bombs to Israel.
While this is nothing new in and of itself, President Obama is said to have told Panetta to “work directly” with his Israeli counterpart and to “favorably consider” the request with an eye toward sending the advanced weaponry as soon as possible.
Both the GBU-28 and the refueling aircraft would be key elements of an Israeli attack on Iran, with the long distance of flight and the heavily reinforced positions inside Iran, particularly after decades of threats to attack have given Iran plenty of time to reinforce those positions.
Israel has been seeking GBU-28 bombs for years, and while the nation reportedly did acquire some in 2009 both the practical matter of acquiring more and the propaganda value of having the US publicly send some on the eve of a major war with Iran would be significant wins for the hawkish Netanyahu government.

If the USG thinks that Israel would not think about using one of those bunker-busters on American troops or installations in order to further it's agenda on destroying the US by getting us involved in fighting Israels wars, think again. Remember the Liberty…
So true, so true.
Sale of war materials? who's paying the price? The US certainly seems to have paid dearly so far.
Israel got some GBU 28's to help them combat the notorous Gaza smuggling tunnels through which T80 tanks SAM and Scud missiles and whole divisions of Bazhi-Bazouk infantry were being sneaked into the refugee fortress.
They found the BGU28's to be ineffective due to poor fusing and poor penetration qualities. Being the mavens of militaria they are, they re-engineered the bomb and sold their own pattern called "Deep Throat'" back to America. Now the American people are donating them back.
Curmudgeonvt, that's just crazy talk. They wouldn't use those bunker-busters on Americans; Americans have no bunkers.
How can Obama then say that he had nothing to do with it ?
What's this "sale" kemo sabe? Since when did they EVER pay for ANYTHING?
It's all "forgiven debts" or "loan guarantees"!
War with Iran will turn many people into Anti-Isreali's! Thats a fact!
Netanyahu is the Rothschild/Britannia sock puppet. With a national debt ten times GDP, the Belgium, Netherlands, and British royals must pay or the Rothschilds lose complete credibility. Thus. their domination of America to pay up and help the lizard queen's family pay up.
I think it's interesting how one day Mr. Obama is claiming its 'unwise' to bomb Iran 'at this time', as to let the 'diplomatic' route of "crippling sanctions" work its magic…and yet the next day it's reported Mr. Obama intends to expeditiously facilitate the sale of "bunker busters" and a refueling aircraft to Israel… This ‘move’ seems even more ingenious than Mr. Obama's idea to run around the UN crying to everyone how Iran's Qods force was planning "terrorists activities" within the US by way of the Zeta Mexican drug cartel via their covert operative working as a used car salesman in Corpus Christie Texas… I can guess the "rational" here; be that as it may, I’m sure Mr. Obama isn’t concerned as he was able to get assuances from Bibi and Barak that Israel would not to actually use these items on Iran…at least not before the 'diplomacy' of "crippling sanctions" was given sufficent time to 'work', or at least not before the US elections–which ever comes first… How this whole 'situation' has play out to date is "brilliant" I have to admit…
Let the crazy shenanigans continue…
They mean more bunker busters. It wasn't too long ago that they were caught in franganti sending entire ship loads of the stuff to the Zionists.
