Re: Timing, timing
So what would lack of support from the NSA stop exactly? Is anyone stupid enough to suggest that the Israelis would not defend themselves without NSA satellite photos or whatever else they're supposed to be talking about here. If anything, this might allow the entire process to be less haphazard.
Although Hamas rocket sites seem to be pretty much anywhere and they like to surround UN sanctuaries with mortar positions. So I am not sure what help extra intel would be anyways.
