Netanyahu: Iran Lied
A stunning announcement from Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in which he revealed Israeli intelligence had acquired a “half ton” of files, data, and even pictures of Iran’s nuclear program. Coming the day after Israel struck Iranian targets in Syria, and with the looming deadline on the Obama-era “Iran Deal”, tensions have never been higher.
Netanyahu to Iran’s foreign minister, who says, “We never wanted to produce a bomb.”
“Yes you did. Yes you do. And the atomic archive proves it.” https://t.co/E6knxxtX5A

This is a stunning intelligence operation, and will no doubt have far-ranging implications in the region. With the US and international community debating the 2015 Iran deal renewal deadline, scrutiny of that deal and policy in the Middle East will be intense.
