Does Obama Support the Bush/Pelosi Secret War in Iran?

The most important section of the Hersh article (cited below) is his finding that the Democratic leadership has approved a $400 million dollar plan to wage a secret war on the Iranian government. Where does Obama stand on this on extremely dangerous plan? Why doesn't someone ask him? It is hard to believe that he does not know about it. Hersh reports the following:

The Democratic leadership’s agreement to commit hundreds of millions of dollars for more secret operations in Iran was remarkable, given the general concerns of officials like Gates, Fallon, and many others. “The oversight process has not kept pace—it’s been coöpted” by the Administration, the person familiar with the contents of the Finding said. “The process is broken, and this is dangerous stuff we’re authorizing.”
