Obama is desperate to find a solution that doesn't involve either force or sanctions .. he likes group hugs. Forging information that says Iran is working on nuclear triggers is the smoking gun that the pro air strikes people have been looking for. Also the report was not leaked by the US it came from a British newspaper the Times and everybody was taken by surprise with this report. I think the one thing we can be sure of is it didn't come from the US and Obama should take it seriously because even if they are not testing nuclear triggers yet considering they are getting closer to nukes and more reliable delivery systems everyday its only a matter of time before it comes to testing the detonation devices begins. Also once they get delivery of the S-300 anti aircraft rockets the only planes that will be capable of doing the job will be the B2 bomber & the F22 Raptor both aircraft in service with the US and if they rule out air strikes nobody has the hardware to pull it off.
