    While publicly pressuring Israel to make deeper concessions to the Palestinians, President Obama has secretly authorized significant new aid to the Israeli military that includes the sale of 55 deep-penetrating bombs known as bunker busters, Newsweek has learned.
    In an exclusive story to be published Monday on growing military cooperation between the two allies, U.S. and Israeli officials tell Newsweek that the GBU-28 Hard Target Penetrators—potentially useful in any future military strike against Iranian nuclear sites—were delivered to Israel in 2009, just several months after Obama took office.

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,

    .......Yeah, I saw that here:

    What strikes me about this so-called secret sale, is that it will be officially reported on Monday, lol.

    Also, Iran is considered an enemy and however they interpret the sale, it puts pressure on them. Notwithstanding, Bush had agreed to the transaction after refusal, also key military officials okay'd the deal.

    Peace In,
