WASHINGTON — Officials said the administration of President Barack Obama was not expected to ship advanced GBU-28 bunker-busters to Israel.
The officials said Obama himself offered to transfer the GBU-28 as well as the KC-135 refueling aircraft to Israel. They said the president, however, demanded an Israeli commitment not to attack Iran in 2012.
The president’s offer was relayed during his meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on March 5. Officials said Netanyahu said Israel would welcome the advanced U.S. platforms but could not commit to allowing Iran to develop nuclear weapons.
They said the advanced weapon was in short supply in U.S. military stocks amid threats in Asia.
