US Blows Israeli Covert Efforts

Published by at 8:57 am under All General Discussions,Iran

Someone in the US Intelligence Community (at times an oxymoron, to be sure) has decided to blow covert efforts by Israel – our supposed ally - by exposing them in the news media:

Israel has launched a covert war against Iran as an alternative to direct military strikes against Tehran’s nuclear programme, US intelligence sources have revealed.

It is using hitmen, sabotage, front companies and double agents to disrupt the regime’s illicit weapons project, the experts say.
The most dramatic element of the “decapitation” programme is the planned assassination of top figures involved in Iran’s atomic operations.

Why do people do this – play know it all? The real question for the Obama administration is whether this was a deliberate leak or not. Is this how President Obama treats our allies, by tipping off our mutual enemies?

Israel will do what it needs to survive in the face of mad islamo fascist with nuclear weapons. Of course if the covert efforts fail, then it is back to the military options. Duh.

Addendum: On second thought, this reads like a lot of people are trying to bring out how serious the situation in Iran might be. Maybe it is a message to President Obama?

    Some of it could be a false flag to get Iran to eat their own in the mole hunt.

    You have to believe that no matter what the info getting public is that paranoid Iran is always on the lookout anyhow , so this really changes little.

    MerlinOS2 is right: the Iranians have no choice but to go on a mole hunt, and they’re going to look closely at their supply chain to make sure none of them have been infiltrated or are Mossad-controlled fronts.

    They’ll also go back and double check all the materials they’ve received for signs of “sabotage”.

    It isn’t beyond the realm of possibility that this leak came out of Mossad without exposing what they’re doing.

    Something some Chinese guy came up with:

    All warfare is based on deception…Hold out baits to entice the enemy…If your opponent is of choleric temper, seek to irritate him… If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.

    Why do people do this, because they are libtards, who think people aren’t evil.

    I don’t think it’s a red herring stunt to upset the Iranians. I think these liberal sociopaths in charge of our governemnt are bent on giving the enemy every bit of info they can so they can gain the upper hand over Israel and our troops in the Middle East. Just as Clinton gave China our military secrets, gave Chinese Generals tours of top secret installlations, and then insured they got the money to build up their military machine to equal ours by throwing our borders open to the flood of cheap Chinese made goods so his beloved Chairman Mao’s brand of Communism would not go under like Stalin’s did, Obama is now giving away the store to his Muslim compatriots. I am not naive enough to think anything is leaked out of Obama’s Washington.
    A good question for Obama is, “Have your girls been circumcised yet?” I guess the answer to that is not available like his birth. college and passport informatin is not available. This is the first President we have had who has something to hide. How long is it going to be before people realize he isn’t on our side? .
