Bush's nod for more covert action in Iran
assassinations under way since last year
• Bi-partisan support for $400m secret war
• Resistance from Generals for an all-out attack
The Bush administration has
significantly increased covert military operations inside Iran aimed at destabilising the country's
government, according to a U.S.
The report, in the New Yorker
magazine, on Sunday quotes military, intelligence and congressional sources
as saying CIA and special forces operations were ordered by U.S. President
George Bush in a "presidential finding" in the past few months.
It said Mr. Bush sought — and
Congressional leaders from both parties approved — $400m for the secret war,

speculation that the White House is considering air strikes against Iranian
nuclear facilities before Mr. Bush leaves office next January. Over the last

would retaliate against any U.S.
or Israeli attack on its nuclear installations by targeting the global oil
supply. — © Guardian Newspapers Limited, 2008
