Any Israeli attack upon Iran would require America's knowledge and blessing, to say nothing of cooperation. Because of this, America would be seen as a sponsor of such an attack and would bear the responsibility. An Israeli attack on Iran would be an invitation for Iran to strike at America's effort's in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as American shipping in the gulf. Any overflight of Saudia Arabia or Iraq would be an inviations to strike at the oil fields of those nations as well as their infrastructure. The first thing that would happen as a result of an Israeli attack upon Iran would be a massive spike in world oil prices, even if Israel's attack failed in it's purpose. Does anyone think that Obama, currently riding a modest wave of popularity, would throw it all away to make Israelis feel more secure? Dagan can call an Israeli attack on Iran stupid. It is stupid, but from Dagan it is merely sour grapes.
