Huh. It says here that Israel requested the bunker busters, which could be used to target Iranian nuclear sites, in 2005, "only to be rebuffed by the Bush administration." Then Obama authorized the delivery of the bombs just months after taking office, despite being anti-Israel/soft on Iran. Weird. Obama must have meant to drop bunker busters on Israel, and then just filled out the wrong form, or something. [Daily Beast]
