General Petraeus: Iran's nuclear sites can be bombed

Yesterday General David Petraeus made some very interesting comments regarding the U.S. bombing Iran's nuclear facilities.

Petraeus told CNN, "Well, they certainly can be bombed. The level of effect would vary with who it is that carries it out, what ordnance they have, and what capability they can bring to bear." Petraeus went on to say, "It would be almost literally irresponsible if CENTCOM were not to have been thinking about the various 'what ifs' and to make plans for a whole variety of different contingencies."

Debkafile also reported on this story and noted, "The deployment in the Middle East of the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower carrier strike group in the first week of January adds muscle to the words of Gen. David Petraeus, CENTCOM commander, on Jan 10 that Iranian nuclear infrastructure, albeit strengthened against attack with enhanced underground tunnels, wasn't fully protected."
