We should consider which government departments and political party wouldn’t want this information to be general public knowledge, if true:
Stratfor allegedly discussed that Israel may have already destroyed the Iranian nuclear facility, according to one of the emails released by Wikileaks Monday.
In one of the over five million emails leaked, the conversation centered on Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak praising the news of deadly munitions blasts at a base of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards.
“I think this is a diversion. The Israelis already destroyed all the Iranian nuclear infrastructure on the ground weeks ago,” one intelligence official wrote in an email dated November 14, 2011. “The current ‘let’s bomb Iran’ campaign was ordered by the EU leaders to divert the public attention from their at home financial problems. It plays also well for the US since Pakistan, Russia and N. Korea are mentioned in the report. ”
One other Stratfor official allegedly indicated a similar finding.
“Israeli commandos in collaboration with Kurd forces destroyed few underground facilities mainly used for the Iranian defense and nuclear research projects,” he wrote on November 13, 2011. “Even if the Israelis have the capabilities and are ready to attack by air, sea and land, there is no need to attack the nuclear program at this point after the commandos destroyed a significant part of it.”
The “Let’s Bomb Iran Campaign” is also currently supported by and very important to the Republicans — for maybe similar reasons as the EU? Distraction. In between discussing his plans for a new Catholic sharia law, Rick Santorum has been warning his supporters in every state he visits of impending nuclear doom from Iran. Thankfully, the Obama Administration isn’t as gung-ho for Iran as the Bush Administration was for Iraq.
