US has “no friend, no better ally in the world than Israel.”… Ex-CIA chief Leon Panetta at the ADL
Ex-Pentagon and CIA chief threatens Iran with military force
…. from Press TV, Tehran
But Panetta knows the damage that Israel has done, and is doing to America. He knows about the USS Liberty, the nuclear espionage, and the FBI had to have kept him up do date as to who Israel’s top spies were in Congress and the White House. If the FBI did not, then the Pentagon, through its huge data mining operations was a good back up.
But that all said, it does not compare to his knowing that Israel was running Jonathan Pollard primarily to spy of the Soviets to get them first strike intel on the US. Pollard, guided by a handler in the Whitehouse, probably on the National Security Council, also helped them decimate a generation of agent building in Eastern Europe which the body count in the 1200 range for those put out of action.
With his statement above Panetta is acting a a spy recruitment agent as the Israelis tell prospective spies that its OK to work with them because they have have permission from all the top people, like Panetta for instance. They are “helping an ally”, the same hustle the Soviets used on our people during WWII, including nuclear spying. And for proof, they just ask the mark when was the last time they saw an Israeli espionage ‘network’ busted up in America.
For them a few people I know would call this treason. I am among them. Leon Panetta is disgrace, and should be booed wherever he goes in public… Jim W. Dean ]
While some anti-Iran US senators push for more illegal sanctions against Iran, in a closed-door briefing on Thursday, senior White House officials, including Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry, urged a number of senators to hold off on a new package of sanctions on Iran.
Obama administration officials did not sway every senator who participated in the meeting, but the Senate Banking Committee would reportedly delay plans for drafting a new sanctions bill next week.
Iran held talks with the United States, Russia, China, France, Britain, and Germany in Geneva over its nuclear energy program earlier this month. The two sides are set to meet again in Geneva on November 7-8.
The US, Israel, and some of their allies have repeatedly accused Iran of pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program.
Iran categorically rejects the allegation, arguing that as a signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), its people’s rights to nuclear technology for peaceful purposes, including enrichment, must be respected.
