Former CIA chief tells Haaretz: Decision on Iran strike can wait.
Iran will achieve nuclear-weapons capability no earlier than 2013 or 2014, says Michael Hayden, adding that the U.S. would be better equipped to launch a military operation against the Islamic Republic than Israel.
A decision on attacking Iran need not be taken at present, as current assessments point to its achieving nuclear-weapons capabilities no earlier than 2013 or 2014, former director of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency Michael Hayden told Haaretz on Monday.

The US has basically not behaved in a manner that makes Washington a suitable partner for Israel.
President Georg W. Bush promised Japan and South Korea, that the US would not permit North Korea going nuclear.
When Pyongyang trigged its first bomb on October 9, 2006, the US military did nothing to stop this nation from continue down the nuclear path.
Why should Israel believe that Washington would be able to do better in regards to Tehran?
Israel should not listen to the CIA, nor the Pentagon. The security of the Jewish people is a matter for the IDF and the incur cabinet in Jerusalem.
You can only be sure about one thing. The World will not get a prior warning when the Israel Air Force destroy the Iranian nuclear weapons program.
