Skip to comments.The Story of How Mossad Stole 100,000 Iranian Nuclear Docs
Posted on 07/16/2018 6:38:00 PM PDT by MtnClimber
You gotta love Mossad. Agents snuck into a warehouse smack in the middle of Tehran last January and, in a 6 1/2-hour operation, managed to steal 100,000 documents that Israel says prove Iran was lying about their nuclear weapons program. Wall Street Journal:
The Israeli team secretly reached the warehouse holding the materials and broke in during a tight time window when it knew the building would be unguarded, the officials said. To avoid drawing attention to the nondescript facility, Iran hadnt posted full-time guards, they said, but rather relied on alarm systems that the Israeli agents disabled.
The Israeli operation was first revealed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at an April press conference in which he declared that the stolen documents proved Iran had lied for years in claiming it didnt have a nuclear-weapons program.
In a lengthy briefing at a security facility here last week, senior Israeli intelligence officials disclosed additional details about the operation. Those include specifics on how the documents were removed from Iran; the existence within the documents of the warhead designs, for which Israel said Iran got unspecified foreign assistance; the operation of a secret explosives-testing facility that international inspectors had long searched for in vain; and a scramble by Iranian officials to keep their nuclear program alive after international inspectors concluded it had been suspended.

The Iranians are legendary liars. They were caught here. The MSM is silent. Thanks Zer0.
Those guys being held for that front moving company were detained for almost 2 months, then let go at the intervention by two very high up people in government who were never named.
Around 1984 I saw an interview with Stanfield Turner. It was one of those Sunday morning news programs.
One journalist asked him: Who is the world’s best intelligence service? Is it Israel’s Mossad, CIA, or KGB?
He replied that none of them were the best. That title went to the British Intelligence. I have no ides if they still are.
I really cannot comprehend a world view in which anyone, anyone at all, anywhere, REALLY ever believed, as opposed to pretended to believe, that Iran was doing anything other than develop nuclear weapons.
It’s simply beyond my ability.
#5. Re whether the British Intelligence was the best in the world.
First of all, Stansfield Turner was a total failure as the head of the CIA. He was so far out of the league that he couldn’t have gotten a job as a waterboy if Carter hadn’t appointed him.
BI used to be great because it had sources in the worldwide British Commonwealth. Today the Commonwealth is more an ancient memory than reality.
As for Mossad, it never left its ancient neighborhood and expanded to new ones.
If you refer to the Oct. 1973 Yom Kippur War and the initial disaster for Israeli forces on the east side of the Suez Canal, a lot of blame goes to America’s misreading of Egyptian “annual” maneuvers and the steady Soviet Bloc weapons buildup that proceded it. I think Kissinger owes everyone an explanation and about the 6 F4 Phantom fighter jets we almost lost between Spain and Israel.
And it seems Zero facilitated this with the money paid in the Iran deal. Zer0 probably wanted Israel eliminated and this was the way.
Stanfield Turner was the worst CIA Director in history. It was no wonder he was appointed by Jimmuh Carter. The reason Turner could not point to the CIA as the best is because he removed human assets from the field and wanted to depend on “technology”. He was an amateur with no clue as to what he was doing and is partially responsible for 911 for leaving us blinded by not having human intelligence assets
President Trump should ask the Mossad who was spying on him during the 2016 campaign, because they know those things. Unlike our intel agencies, they are professionals.
Wasn’t that also a Frank Church problem?
Yes Frank Church was the political equivalent of agency head Turner. Both incompetent and both pushing the same foolish policy of eliminating human assets in our spy network.
