Trial Balloon floated ?

NEW YORK - The owner and publisher of the Atlanta Jewish Times, Andrew Adler, has suggested that Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu consider ordering a Mossad hit team to assassinate U.S. President Barack Obama so that his successor will defend Israel against Iran.
Adler, who has since apologized for his article, listed three options for Israel to counter Iran’s nuclear weapons in an article published in his newspaper last Friday. The first is to launch a pre-emptive strike against Hamas and Hezbollah, the second is to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities and the third is to “give the go-ahead for U.S.-based Mossad agents to take out a president deemed unfriendly to Israel in order for the current vice president to take his place and forcefully dictate that the United States’ policy includes its helping the Jewish state obliterate its enemies.”
     First , i posted the link - not just so everyone could read the entire article , but so it could be clear the source was a leading newspaper of Israel - not a far fringe speculative blogspot. Second point , at a time when relations between the US and Israel are at a nadir , the idea this has been floated seems like curious timing. Third , we can feel some type of other event is in the offing - apart from being on Carrier transit watch , one has to consider an other event of some type closer to home. Fourth , in era where useful idiots can be influenced to do horrible things , the timing of this again seems curious. Fifth , the Op Ed was penned on January 15th - the same day the joint US - Israel Austere Challenge 12 was postponed and just days before General Dempsey was scheduled to travel to Israel for critical talks concerning Iran - again the timing is curious. stay tuned for other events and don't be surprised what or where they may occur !
