Live from Tehran?

ABC News co-anchor Bob Woodruff will begin reporting for World News Tonight tonight from Iran "Woodruff isn't likely to appear live on video for "World News Tonight," though facilities for live TV could be made available through the state-run networks."

But will they have a "four-wire" transmitter......

as seen in Live from Baghdad, for when the bombs fall? SpiegelOnline reports....
Recent reports in the German media suggest that the United States may be preparing its allies for an imminent military strike against facilities that are part of Iran's suspected clandestine nuclear weapons program.
According to Ulfkotte's report, "western security sources" claim that during CIA Director Porter Goss' Dec. 12 visit to Ankara, he asked Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to provide support for a possibile 2006 air strike against Iranian nuclear and military facilities. More specifically, Goss is said to have asked Turkey to provide unfettered exchange of intelligence that could help with a mission.

DDP also reported that the governments of Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Oman and Pakistan have been informed in recent weeks of Washington's military plans. The countries, apparently, were told that air strikes were a "possible option," but they were given no specific timeframe for the operations.
