I thought the officials did a good job of playing this guy's own game on him. His agenda is obvious. Does he actually think a US official is going to
acknowledge that Israel might have nuclear weapons to some college kid with a microphone and an attitude? Of course not. Each one of these guys has a
security clearance and a complete understanding that if they reveal classified information, they go to jail. They said as much. Perhaps you weren't
listening to what they had to say. There's also the policy issues. It's not up to these guys to spill the beans. If the President wants to spill the
beans, let him do it and let him take the consequences. It's not up to the DIA Director or some Senator to upstage the entire government.
There's also a bit of hypocrisy involved here. The US intelligence agencies, as well as many foreign intelligence agencies from the UK, France, etc.
said Saddam had WMD. Apparently he did not, though he had used them on his own people in the past, and he didn't mind at all if the rest of the world
thought he had them. So now you (plural, used loosely) want us to believe that the US intelligence agencies know that Israel has nuclear weapons. They
were wrong last time. What makes them suddenly right this time? Just like Saddam, Israel doesn't mind at all if the rest of the world thinks Israel
has them. So you condemn the agencies because you think they were wrong in the first instance and condemn them because you think they are right
(though they've never said) in the second instance. It's pretty obvious that you intend to condemn them no matter what they say.
So the film says Israel is the ONLY country not to sign the Middle east Nuclear non-proliferation treaty. What does this piece of paper have to do
with reality? Iraq certainly DID want nuclear weapons. Israel took out their reactor to prevent it. Syria had a nuclear program. Israel took that out,
too. Iran has a nuclear program and is going for the bomb. Libya had a program and stopped it when the US invaded Iraq. All these countries signed a
treaty and then ignored it, so why should Israel sign the same treaty and be expected to obey it? Hypocrisy again.
I think you also have to ask yourself, what if the US DID acknowledge that in their estimation, Israel DID have nuclear weapons. What difference would
that make? Do you think Israel would suddenly say, "Gosh, guys. You caught us. I guess we'll have to dismantle all our nuclear weapons now. We'll
get that done before Iran finishes theirs!" There's also the issue of you wanting the US to butt out of everyone's business--except Israel's,
where the US is expected to intervene. Hyopocrisy again.
And here we have a President who is as left wing as it gets, as pro-Palestinian as it gets, as anti-Israel as any President has ever been--even
Carter, surrounding himself with like-minded advisors, and still you can't get this acknowledgement you seek. If not Obama, who? Look what's happend
to Obama's last farcical suggestion that Israel return to its 67 borders. Netanyahu said, "It's not gonna happen," and Congress, the US Congress,
So as long as we have people whose real agenda is to push Israel into the sea and kill all Jews (both of which are in the Hamas charter), then
whatever the US says is pretty much immaterial. And so is what the UN says. As Netanyahu said, the UN can claim the Sun revolves around the Earth of
they want to. They can proclaim that both discs are flat, but as long as people long for another Holocaust, Israel is going to make sure it survives.
Get over it.
