U.S. officials reportedly told Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres that Israel will have adequate advance warning of any attack on Iraq. “We know that Israel is likely to be attacked,” one diplomatic source quoted Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage as telling Peres. A similar message was conveyed to Peres by Vice President Dick Cheney and National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, according to the Jerusalem Post.
