overplayed their hand

the dirty little secret is that israel probably can't attack iranian nuclear facilities alone. it doesn't have the technical capabilities to hit something that far away while traveling over several hostile countries. netanyahu and barak have been amping up their rhetoric on iran in the hopes of getting americans to go along with their crazy plan.

now that it's clear that isn't going to happen (at least not before the american election), they are suddenly trying to back their way out of all that "now or never" language. because they now know it won't be now, but they don't want that to mean never.
