Much of the focus is on the accumulation of intelligence and targeting information on Iranian nuclear, chemical, and missile sites, both declared and suspected. The goal is to identify and isolate three dozen, and perhaps more, such targets that could be destroyed by precision strikes and short-term commando raids."

Perhaps even more important than the specific allegations about Iran are the relevations Hersh provides about Pentagon control of covert operations.
