FILE - In this Sunday, Nov. 4, 2012 file photo, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attends a weekly cabinet meeting in Jerusalem. Netanyahu ordered the military in 2010 to go on high alert for a looming attack on Iran's nuclear program, but backed off following strong objections from senior security officials, according to an Israeli news program. The show suggests Israel came close to carrying out the strike, and exposes a deep rift between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his top security men over the wisdom of attacking Iran.
