Mossad chief Tamir Pardo held secret talks with top U.S. officials in recent days, cursory comments made during a public Senate hearing indicated on Tuesday.
The clandestine Washington visit was exposed during a hearing of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, which was participated by CIA Director David Petraeus, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and Dianne Feinstein, who chairs the Senate panel.
During the meeting, Feinstein asked Clapper whether or not Israel intended to strike Iran's nuclear facilities, with the top U.S. intelligence official answering that he would rather discuss the issue behind closed doors.
Feinstein then indicated that she had met Mossad chief Pardo earlier in the week in Washington, with Petraeus adding that he too met Pardo and cited what he called Israel's growing concern over Iran's nuclear ambitions.
The entire exchange was broadcasted live on American television.

Well, I guess it’s no longer a secret.
Ohhhh, so this is what Obama meant by transparency. My bad.
Israel will find it gets no help from the liberal fascists who now control our government. Obama is simply playing to his Jewish electorate, and they are biting big time as usual.
Feinstein is selling out her own people, and should be ridiculed from office in the Senate.
Meanwhile the Obama leftists pretend hang wring, until the entire middle east glows in the dark. NICE! I guess that solves the problem of Arab Spring.
Doncha Love it when you have liberal fascists ruling our nation?
Who needs Wikileaks, when you get “official” stuff like this and how the SEALs plan and execute operations on a much more timely basis?
Well, look at the bright side: we are saving the world economy a lot of money on spy personnel and equipment that they don’t need, so that they can buy more good stuff from China.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Wouldn’t it be faster and more efficient to distribute the news of the meeting to every mosque in the world (They have internet, you know?) and have it shouted from the minarets at prayer time?
Top spooks meet in secret. What a scandal. The “code of silence” has been broken, Agent 99. Chaos is on the move.
“The entire exchange was broadcast live on American television.”
WTF - can’t these people keep their mouths shut???
The clandestine Washington visit was exposed during a hearing of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence...”
Ditto the above comment. Probably Feinstein’s big mouth was most responsible - she loves to look/sound important.
Feinstein asked Clapper whether or not Israel intended to strike Iran’s nuclear facilities, with the top U.S. intelligence official answering that he would rather discuss the issue behind closed doors.”
Well, no kidding. DF would probably be on the other side of the wall with a glass and her ear pressed against it.
She needs to go away already.
“Ohhhh, so this is what Obama meant by transparency.”
He demands it from everyone but himself and his own people.
Both Feinstein and Petraeus are on the panel and BOTH say they met with Pardo.
Then we have Leon Panetta indicating that we are going to get out of Afghanistan mid 2013,an announcement that was supposed to be made in May.
Something else is going on here. The dots remain to be connected.
