A former Carter admin official, who else?
Zbigniew Brzezinski, who enthusiastically campaigned for U.S. President Barack Obama, has called on the president to shoot down Israeli planes if they attack Iran. â€œThey have to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Are we just going to sit there and watch?â€ said the former national security advisor to former U.S. President Jimmy Carter in an interview with the Daily Beast. Brzezinski, who served in the Carter administration from 1977 to 1981, is currently a professor of American foreign policy at Johns Hopkins University's School of Advanced International Studies in Maryland. â€œWe have to be serious about denying them that right,â€ he said. â€œIf they fly over, you go up and confront them. They have the choice of turning back or not. No one wishes for this but it could be a 'Liberty' in reverse.â€™" Israel mistakenly attacked the American Liberty ship during the Six-Day War in 1967.
