    Debka is reporting this was done by Iran on purpose to embolden the Hezbollah fighters in Syria so they feel the war in Syria has an effect on them at home. If there was indeed a 3 day heads up then everyone on the inside knows it. The US is untrustworthy and largely incompetent and Iran is having a great time playing the propaganda game. I still don’t understand how Obama pivots from inaction in Syria which is driven by Iran to trying to make peace with a country who not only doesn’t trust the US (like most Americans) but has continued to reinforce the fact that they have no interest in peace. Obama makes George W. Bush look like Marry Poppins and the Iranians make the Palestinians look like partners for peace!
