Monday, January 17, 2005 - Journalist: U.S. planning for possible attack on Iran "WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The Bush administration has been carrying out secret reconnaissance missions to learn about nuclear, chemical and missile sites in Iran in preparation for possible airstrikes there, journalist Seymour Hersh said Sunday.
The effort has been under way at least since last summer, Hersh said on CNN's 'Late Edition.'
In an interview on the same program, White House Communications Director Dan Bartlett said the story was 'riddled with inaccuracies.'
'I don't believe that some of the conclusions he's drawing are based on fact,' Bartlett said.
Iran has refused to dismantle its nuclear program, which it insists is legal and is intended solely for civilian purposes. (Full story)"

Seymour Hersh said his information on Iran came from "inside" sources.
