(National Interest) In the last year, the U.S. Air Force has conducted at least three trial runs of a bombing campaign against Iran's nuclear facilities, according to a report in Politico Magazine.
"At least three times in the past year, a B-2 stealth bomber has taken off from an Air Force base in Missouri and headed west to the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. For these missions, the $2 billion plane was outfitted with one of the world's largest bombs," the report by Michael Crowley said, referring to the Pentagon's Massive Ordnance Penetrator (MOP) bomb.
"Those flights were, in effect, trial runs for the attack on Iran that President Barack Obama, or his successor, may order if diplomacy can't prevent Iran from trying to build a nuclear weapon."
