But surely this one beats the band; by a long chalk.
Behind The Story Of Israel’s Aborted Nuclear Strike
By William Thomas Jan 25th 2007
What does a reporter do when handed the most incendiary story of his career?
What if it’s wrong? What if it’s true?
When no one else is reporting Israel’s attempted nuclear strike on Iran—and a pair of intelligence agents are tracking your source, “publish or perish” takes on new meaning.>>>
Israeli Nuclear Strike On Iran Turned Back ...
Yeah, when we saw that we both blinked too.
Here's what we found when reading further.
A recent strike by nuclear-armed Israeli Air Force fighter-bombers bound for targets in Iran was turned back after being intercepted by U.S. fighters over Iraq, this reporter has learned.
Two sources have independently confirmed the encounter, which took place on January 7, 2007.
Though the first informant offered few details beyond an initial tip, a second source long-known by this reporter to have well-placed U.S. and “non-U.S.” military and government contacts provided specific information regarding the raid, which was aimed at the radical religious ayatollahs holding ultimate power in Iran.

Pants pissed yet?

All of the above?
And there's more of the same scary sort of stuff where this came from.
Feast your eyes on the following for example.
According to this very reliable source, on two previous occasions Israeli fighter-bombers armed with nuclear bombs have headed “downtown” before being turned back over Iraq.
The January 7th mission, which trespassed beyond 160 station before being recalled by Israeli authorities, comprised three IAF F-16s. Each carried conventional munitions—as well as a single 20-kiloton nuclear bomb.
The atomic detonation that razed the city of Hiroshima and killed 140,000 people outright was a 13-kiloton blast. [Agence France-Presse Aug 6/05]
