On Meet the Press, Tim Russert points out a stunning press release from the White House Communications Office. The release, titled Setting The Record Straight (http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2006/07/20060721-5.html), endorses an LA Times Op-Ed that calls for Israel to attack Syria:

"It’s time to let the Israelis take off the gloves…. Israel needs to hit the [Syrian] Assad regime. Hard."

It’s difficult to not interpret this as the White Communications Office officially endorsing an Israeli attack on Syria.

They have the video posted (http://www.alternet.org/blogs/video/39374/).
