The June Attack on Iran

Last April, Seymour Hersch was making the rounds insisting that President Bush planned a major attack against Iran in the near future. He based this on a column he had published in the New Yorker. That column didn't give any timetables for the attack but he named June on several talk show appearances (which were verbal and therefore harder to find a link for). At the time, no one called him for making the exact same prediction a year earlier. At that point he was claiming that the attack would be in June, 2005.

We are now half-way into July so it is safe to say that there will be no June attack. Further, there seems to be less talk about attacks.

So, will anyone call Hersch on his mis-calculation? Besides me, that is.
