Tidak cukup bantahan resmi dari juru bicara pemerintah, samapai-sampai Bush sendiri yang memberikan komentar saat berbicara di Universitas John Hopkins, New York (BBC, 10/04/06).

Laporan yang ditulis Seymour H Hersh dengan judul “The Iran Plans: Would President Bush go to war to stop Tehran from getting the bomb” dan dipublikasikan oleh majalah New Yorker edisi 17 April itu mengemukakan rencana serangan AS ke Iran.
