Next U.S. war?

The week's news at a glance.

Tehran

American commandos are on the ground in Iran searching for weapons of mass destruction, according to the U.S. journalist Seymour Hersh. “The goal is to identify and isolate three dozen, and perhaps more, such targets that could be destroyed by precision strikes and short-term commando raids,” Hersh wrote in The New Yorker this week, citing unnamed government sources. Having gone to war with Iraq over weapons of mass destruction that have never been found, he said, the Bush administration is determined to avoid any similar embarrassment if it attacks Iran. But White House Communications Director Dan Bartlett described Hersh’s story as “riddled with inaccuracies,” while Iranian officials dismissed it as “psychological warfare.”
