Mossad Agrees With US: ‘No Hard Evidence On Iran Nuke Bomb’

By

Israel’s intelligence service Mossad agrees with US assessments there is no hard evidence that Iran has decided to build a nuclear bomb, even though Israeli leaders have talked about Tehran’s plans to acquire nuclear weapons, AFP reported citing The New York Times.

“Their people ask very hard questions, but Mossad does not disagree with the US on the weapons program,” the newspaper quoted an unnamed former senior US intelligence official as saying.

“There is not a lot of dispute between the US and Israeli intelligence communities on the facts,” the former official said.

The Times reported last month that the latest assessments by US spy agencies are broadly consistent with a 2007 intelligence finding that concluded that Iran had abandoned its nuclear weapons program.

According to Saturday March 18 report, US spy agencies have spent years trying to track Iranian efforts to enrich uranium and develop missile technology, and they are watching for any move toward weaponization.

While the National Security Agency eavesdrops on telephone conversations of Iranian officials and conducts other forms of electronic surveillance, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency analyzes radar imagery and digital images of nuclear sites, the paper noted.

Outside analysts believe high-tech drones prowl over secret Iranian installations, The Times pointed out.

Meanwhile, clandestine ground sensors, which can detect electromagnetic signals or radioactive emissions that could be linked to covert nuclear activity, are placed near suspect Iranian facilities, according to the report.

The United States also relies heavily on information gathered by inspectors with the International Atomic Energy Agency who visit some of Iran’s nuclear-related facilities, The Times said.

    “The United States also relies heavily on information gathered by inspectors with the International Atomic Energy Agency who visit some of Iran’s nuclear-related facilities, The Times said.”

    So the IAEA doesn’t have any confidentiality agreements with NPT members? The US is allowed to know…and this would mean Israel as well by default?

    Must make it a little easier to prepare those false flag targetted assassinations of civilians scientists? And let’s not forget Israel funding Islamist terror cells into the bargain. Where is the indignation of the USG? Where are the US sanctions on Israel for all her “violations”? Gross hypocrisy that will come back to bite the US hard.

    Both countries are corrupt as well as morally and ethically bankrupt.

    As for Mossad, they would be the JOKE of the Intelligence Community….if they weren’t considered to be some of the most dangerous, cold blooded and psychopathic killers on the planet. Who would believe ANYTHING they have to say?

    The ONLY country in the ME to threaten the use of nuclear weapons isn’t Iran, it’s Israel.

    Drop the propaganda nonsense Israel and the US, a great many do not care what you think anymore. Neither has a shred of credibility on the world stage. Meanwhile, domestic decay continues unabated…is all the sabre rattling nonsense meant to deflect the public’s attention? I don’t think it’s working somehow.
