Military Sources Say U.S. Has Sent Cruise Missile First Strike Attack Team to Israel

Interview with Bruce Gagnon, coordinator of the Global Network Against Weapons in Space, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

On Aug. 6, the day commemorating the U.S. atomic bomb attack on Hiroshima Japan in 1945, the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space issued a statement that warned that the U.S. and Israel are selecting targets for a cruise missile first-strike attack. The group said that multiple military sources informed them that Pentagon personnel responsible for selecting targets for cruise missile first-strike attacks have been sent to Israel.

Bruce Gagnon, co-founder of the Global Network, warns that this information indicates that the U.S. and Israeli military strategists may be meeting to plan a joint attack on Syria and/or Iran. Pentagon spokesman Lt. Commander Joe Carpenter told Between the Lines, "I could envision no scenario where first strike planners would be in Israel." However, he did acknowledge that the U.S. has transferred weapons to Israel since the war with Lebanon broke out a month ago.

The Global Network was founded in 1992 to oppose the arms race in space. Based in Brunswick, Maine, co-founder Bruce Gagnon has staffed the organization since its inception, developing contacts within the military on a variety of issues. Between The Lines' Melinda Tuhus spoke with Gagnon about his group's assertion and this potentially dangerous expansion of the war in Lebanon.
