WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States does not believe media reports about an explosion at an Iranian uranium enrichment plant, White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters on Monday.

The reports had said there had been an explosion early last week at the underground Fordow bunker near the holy Iranian city of Qom.

"We have no information to confirm the allegations in the report and we do not believe the report is credible," Carney said. "We don't believe those are credible reports."

Even if it was true, they would not tell us because it might hurt the “Iranian boogeyman must be destroyed” plan.
Israel wanted Saddam gone, we (The US) did that for them as ordered.
Now Israel wants Iran gone, and we will obey and we will follow Israel’s orders on that also.
How many Americans must die for Israel?
