Pentagon to develop new bombing plans for Iranian targets

clipped from

Seymour Hersh reports in The New Yorker that Vice President Cheney has convinced the White House to order revisions to the Pentagon's plans for an attack on Iran, shifting the targets from suspected nuclear facilities to sites thought to be associated with attacks on U.S. forces in Iraq.

The proposal to attack Revolutionary Guard Corps facilities, among other targets, is attracting support from military brass at the Pentagon, Hersh says. "The strategy calls for the use of sea-launched cruise missiles and more precisely targeted ground attacks and bombing strikes, including plans to destroy the most important Revolutionary Guard training camps, supply depots, and command and control facilities," he writes.
