On Monday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced to the world that Israel had carried out a stunning intelligence operation: their agents had smuggled tens of thousands of physical documents about Iran’s nuclear program out of Iran itself. Those “half a ton” of documents demonstrate Iran’s ongoing nuclear program, and the fact that the Obama administration lied constantly and repeatedly to the public about Iran’s newfound moderation in order to scam the public into approving Obama’s Iran nuclear deal — a deal that allowed Iran to maximize its regional power with income from the West.
Netanyahu announced, “Iran lied. Big time. After signing the nuclear deal in 2015, Iran intensified its efforts to hide its secret nuclear files.” Netanyahu said that a dilapidated warehouse contained Iran’s nuclear files: “55,000 pages, another 55,000 files on 188 CDs.” The files included incriminating documents, charts, and presentations.
According to Netanyahu, Iran had a comprehensive program, Project Amad, to design and develop nuclear weapons, and they have now disassembled the program for later reassembly. The specific goal of Project Amad: designing nuclear weapons; developing nuclear cores; preparing nuclear implosions; preparing nuclear tests; integrating nuclear warheads on missiles. Iran devised a plan after the beginning of the Second Gulf War to further develop its nuclear weapons program in secret — and to form new organizations to continue the work of Project Amad. Today, Netanyahu said, the work was carried out inside the Iranian Defense Ministry, and many of Amad’s key personnel continued to work on the project. The Iranians did not declare their program to the International Atomic Energy Agency. Iran instead denied the existence of a program and specifically denied the Amad plan.
This presentation was undoubtedly carried out with the knowledge of the United States; Netanyahu said that the information had been shared with the United States.
This is likely the precursor to the Trump administration moving to end the Iran nuclear deal, as they should. The Obama administration misled the American public, promoted Iranian lies repeatedly, and as Netanyahu said, “The nuclear deal is based on lies. 100,000 files right here prove that they lied…Iran continues to lie…The nuclear deal gives Iran a clear path to an atomic arsenal.”
