'Sources close to Barak' deny Times of London story on Iran

On Saturday night, I blogged a Times of London report that indicated that Israel is making preparations so that it can be ready to strike Iran in a matter of hours. Unsurprisingly, 'sources close' to Defense Minister Ehud Barak are now denying the story.
Sources close to Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Sunday morning dismissed a report that appeared in Saturday's The Times newspaper claiming that Israel was preparing for the possibility that it would need to attack Iran's nuclear facilities at several hours' notice.

The sources called the article in the UK paper the "baseless speculation of a reporter," adding that such reports isolated Israel against the Iranian threat, Army Radio said.
Let me tell you a secret: I believed that the IDF was making those kinds of preparations before the Times published its story, and I continue to believe that the IDF is making those preparations after the story has been both published and denied. The defense minister once dressed in drag to assassinate a key PLO-member in Beirut. Iran is threatening to destroy us with nuclear weapons. Does anyone seriously believe he isn't up to something?

Interesting. People close to Barak deny the details of the London Times story but they don't deny Israel is preparing for such an eventuality. I'd call that a denial non-denial. Not that Israel is going to fool anyone when it finally happens.
