email: “I think this is a diversion. The Israelis already destroyed all the Iranian nuclear infrastructure on the ground weeks ago,” one Stratfor 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. ”
Others at Stratfor arrived at a similar conclusion:
“Israeli commandos in collaboration with Kurd forces destroyed few underground facilities mainly used for the Iranian defense and nuclear research projects,” another official 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.”
Don’t hold your breath waiting for this to be all over the evening news.
It is interesting to note though that the Jewish press was all over this one. I have no idea why that might be, other than gloating.
I expect the war propagandists (the entire mainstream media) to sweep this one under the rug.
