Netanyahu Busted Covering Up Intelligence That Disagrees With His Opposition To Obama Iran Deal

Obama-Netanyahu

A report out of Israel claims that Prime Minister Netanyahu is covering up and suppressing Israeli intelligence that disagrees with his opposition to Obama’s Iran nuclear deal.

According to Haaretz:

There are those in the Intelligence Corps, including those in the research division dealing with Iran, who have a very positive view of the nuclear agreement. Their views, at variance with the totally negative stance taken by Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, have bubbled up to the level of Halevy, Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot and others, but there too they have been swallowed up as if they had never existed. Although this is not usually the case in the Intelligence Corps, as opposed to that regarding state secrets, these views are being concealed from the public. Where is the oversight department that is supposed to present contrarian views to the accepted wisdom?

…..

Netanyahu, who is afraid of the publication of intelligence assessments that contradict his own, wants to prevent the public and the U.S. Congress from seeing the cracks in the false facade of a unified Israeli front that opposes the agreement with Iran. Military officers who cooperate with this approach are in breach of their national duty.

Netanyahu’s behavior sounds very similar to that of the Bush administration before the United States invaded Iraq. At the time, the administration officials pushing for war in Iraq ignored, suppressed, or discredited any intelligence that disagreed with the Bush/Cheney assessment of Iraq as a fast and easy war to win.

The result was a mismanaged disaster of a war in Iraq that neither the American or the Iraqi people have yet to recover fully from. Netanyahu is trying to woo Senate Democrats into opposing the deal. Israeli intelligence reports that disagree with his opposition to the deal would be fatal to his plan of getting enough votes in the Senate to kill the deal.

Prime Minister Netanyahu is still interfering in American politics, and he is doing it in the most disingenuous manner possible. The peoples of both Israel and the United States deserve to see all of the Israeli intelligence on the deal.

Republicans in Congress and Netanyahu are trying to put over a WMD level lie on the American people. Instead of mushroom clouds, it’s nuclear programs, and getting rid of Saddam has been replaced by war with Iran.

    This whole brouha-ha against the Deal is NOT about the deal substantively, but against…..You guessed it OBAMA! These American Senators, who are trying to kill (it can’t be undone)or reject the deal (symbolically)including NY Sen. Schumer, are playing in to Netanyahu’s hands. They will regret having done so. BTW what sway does Netanyahu have over these guys anyway? I think that these Americans should be telling Bibi to CHILL! Obama does.

  2. Oh, yeah!! The right-wing approach to peace. And Israel continues to enjoy the billions of our taxpayer money and all the benefits that come with it.

  3. Netanyahu has been trying for years to get us to buy him a war. He thought he had succeeded when he had Romney by the by the balls, but Willard lost. Netanyahu’s tantrum is now old and transparent – warmonger, killer, liar. Hes totally a republican!

  4. I am so glad this came out!!! And while our bully congressmen are in their home districts trying to persuade people that Obama is wrong, weak, whatever. I hope the news gets circulated widely, but unless Rachel is on it, I doubt people will ever know. The media in the last 8 years has just become a joke.
    But yeah, since when do we take marching orders from Netanyahu? Was he elected by the same people who put Grover in charge of the GOP in Congress?

  5. …Nutty-yoyo will go down in history as Israels worst Prime Minister…his perfidy will eventually make the news; too juicy a story NOT to tell…but it’ll be slanted to be sympathetic to the forces o’ Nutty-yoyo…

  6. JCBlues: GOOD POINT! I bet you Chuck is going to have an Oooops! moment. Serves him right. He jumped the gun. Let’s see if he backtracks.

  7. Here’s how it works. Congress votes to reject.Obama vetoes. Not enough votes to override. Nothing left to do but SHUT DOWN THE GOVERNMENT! Bout right? Just what you can expect from the land of 47 traitors.

  8. The TANTRUM brigade will come out, screaming: SHUT IT DOWN! SHUT IT DOWN!

    Reminds you or it’s akin to some rioters screaming: BURN IT DOWN!

    Totally destructive attitudes on both counts.

    You are right, the cry-baby Republicans, again can’t get their way, will throw a hissy-fit. IF they would only do the right thing by Obama they wouldn’t be getting pie in their faces constantly now.
    Support what’s supportable on its merits, NOT because you don’t want the other side (Democrats/Obama) to look good. And oppose and or compromise in good faith when necessary. We get that. But when opposing everything, “just because” doesn’t pass the smell test. It looks more like sour grapes and spite. You notice that most of those characters opposed the deal before it was a done deal or even read it.

  9. And Netanyahu’s propaganda machine is burning $$$ (reportedly 500 million) to “INFORM” the people of the USA that the Iran deal is wrong.

    $$$ that the most likely gave Israel for somehting else. It is not enough $$$ for Netanyahu, he wants more and also wants our sons and daughters to go and die for HIS war.

    Cut him loose from our payroll!

  10. This NO questions asked deal the usa and israel has really needs to be discussed! I’m so tire of this israel can’t do wrong nonsense! this isn’t 1948 ANYMORE!! israel isn’t this fledgling little nation ANYMORE! I congratulate them for THREE DAY WAR, hats off, But this isn’t 1948 israel anymore. They’re a power in the middle east, they have the FIRE POWER to destroy the entire planet! they’ve got NUKES! They’re got a well trained AIR FORCE! a SOLID military! they’ve even got a HEALTH CARE SYSTEM that rivals OURS. They’re NOT arguing about ABORTION! they’ve GOT IT, a israeli woman actually has CONTROL of her reproductive rights! So educated ME! WHY are we sending them WELFARE? if netanyahu wants to play big boss,WHY accept americas MONEY? if netanyahu really has a BIG BALLS, WHY is he 24/7 trying to get the usa to wipe out EVERYBODY in the region? WHY? I’ll tell you, netanyahu is a power hungry MADMAN! but he’s a CHEAP cowardly THUG, he wants AMERICAN blood spilled for HIS….

  11. BTW isn’t this just typical usa policy?? send other nations WELFARE CHECKS for THEM to turn right around and use the CHECKS to hurt the usa? lol when is america ever gonna learn? YOU can’t buy loyalty with just MONEY, speaking of the usa and the middle east, haven’t WE been plugging in OUR WELFARE puppets in both IRAN & IRAQ? didn’t WE setup the Shah of IRAN? didn’t WE setup one Mr. Saddam Hussein?? how did that workout for us??

  12. Netanyahu is not israel any more than Bush was the USA. Israel deserves our support which goes to defense as they are under constant threat of attack. The contributions the Israelis make to the world in science, medicine and technology are also well worth the financial aid we give them. Not to mention the fact that Israel is a first responder to every naturally disaster in every part of the world. Do not judge them on Netanyahu!

  13. “Netanyahu, who is afraid of the publication of intelligence assessments that contradict his own, wants to prevent the public and the U.S. Congress from seeing the cracks in the false facade of a unified Israeli front that opposes the agreement with Iran. Military officers who cooperate with this approach are in breach of their national duty.”

    I think we need to have a hard look at OUR general officers. Why did they let our war drag on? They must have studied the Soviet disaster in Afghanistan. And considered the consequences of a 5,000 mile + logistics tail. Provided by a for-profit contractor. Why didn’t they speak up?

  14. Bovine excrement. What these likud nuts aided by the traitors in Congress wants the US to go to war and its not even over nukes that don’t even exist. Nut a yahoo wants a economic weak Iran so Israel’s hegemony in the Middle east wont be threaten and you fools fall for the okey doke

  15. I consider your points as valid, but you seem to have disconnected from one point, their defense is in favor of an apartheid state, which oppresses minorities, and confiscates land for their exclusive expansion. American taxpayer dollars are probably being used for these offensive policies which is not to be blamed on the Jewish people so-much; any more than blaming German civilians for the Nazi war crimes would be appropriate. A government will pursue any policy that seeks its own self-interests; and who blames early Americans for oppressing and taking land of the native Indians?

  16. Why didn’t our general officers speak up?

    As a military vet- I’ll state why: Because you don’t get to be a general officer by ‘rocking the boat’.

  17. Jim Webb never had a chance as a Democratic Presidential candidate. Maybe as a Republican he might win the nomination. I don’t know who is more of a DINO, Webb or Schumer.

    Hi and where the heck have you been all day, DJ?

  18. I wonder if you hear this on the evening/nightly news or are the American people going to be treated to over privilege sexist, bigot which a foreign billionaire is willing to finance and a election that don’t take place until Nov. 2016.
    In the meantime, we got 56 democrats who being chauffeur and PAID FOR BY AIPAC WITH ALL EXPENSE INCLUDED.

  19. Did you get to read this very well written article about BLM and Bernie Sanders’ supporters?

    http://www.dailykos.com/story/2015/08/10/1410719/-Open-letter-to-progressives-You-re-doing-it-wrong-and-it-ll-cost-the-Democratic-Party

    “Now white progressives, this is important: You don’t hold the moral high ground. You don’t get to decide the strategy of an oppressed group. Not everything is about you. And every time you talked about your frustration at being momentarily inconvenienced by Black Lives Matter, you show how white supremacy is benefiting you.”

    My poor Darling. Hope you’re comfortable and missed you.

  20. Considering all the trolls here, I’m surprised you’re not immune to pains in the ass!

    Sorry for your discomfort!

  21. “…a war in Iraq that neither the American or the Iraqi people have yet to recover fully from.”

    FULLY? How about “AT ALL”?

  22. “The contributions the Israelis make to the world in science, medicine and technology are also well worth the financial aid we give them.”

    I don’t think so. Name some.

    And why is it that education and science in our own country doesn’t seem to deserve funding???

  23. …GD it!!! I’m sick and ‘F’ing tired of all these AIPAC commercials lying about the Iran deal…I’m now all in on cutting Israels allowance in half, and kicking AIPAC all the way back to Tel Aviv!!!

  24. So explain this to me, according to the republicans, AMERICA’S BROKE! OK so we don’t have MONEY to afford social security (CHECK) we don’t have MONEY to pay the hard working american who’s pension got STOLEN by the oligarch’s! (CHECK) we don’t have MONEY for ANY infrustructure (CHECK) we don’t have MONEY for child care assistance for low income mothers (CHECK) we don’t have MONEY for WIC (CHECK) we don’t have MONEY for struggling americans on SNAP (CHECK) we don’t have MONEY for public schools (CHECK) but WE got BILLIONS of dollars for WELFARE to ISRAEL which DOES’NT NEED IT! (CHECK) what’s wrong with this picture? I thought charity started at HOME.

  25. This “revelation” might be the cover Senator Schumer needs to reverse course and save his political career!

  26. Don’t be surprised if Israel does something bad and tries to frame Iran. Netanyahu is desperate. Remember USS Liberty.

  27. Frankly, I don’t care about saving anyone’s “political careeer.” Most of these politicans care nothing about doing their job for the American people. It’s all about raking in the cash and keeping their job. I am also sick and tired of the political whores who commit treason and call themselves “patriots.” Like my glorious so-called senator, the traitor known as Tom Cotton, who took one million from Isreal for his letter to Iran. Nice job if you can get it…right! If the American people keep voting for the facist hate group formerly known as the gop, then they deserve everything they are going to get… a royal FU from the 1%. And, they will keep blaming Obama until the dirt is shoveled over their stupid little heads. I have no time to waste on them because they are causing their own demise.

  28. Netanyahu is living in the ancient past through the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament. This is evident when he gives speeches claiming Jerusalem has been Israel’s capital for over 2,000 years. It’s evident by Israel’s continued and expanding illegal occupation of Palestinian lands. There are millions of Christians who back him up in his mythology. We need to take the advice of Thomas Paine who wrote in The Age of Reason, The Complete Edition that we need a revolution in religion based on our innate God-given reason and Deism. This will do a lot to end religious violence.

  29. We’ve Had 35 Years Of Hostility With Iran. How’s It Working Out For Us?

    Peter Beinart in The Atlantic wrote an excellent article about why Barack Obama’s deal with Iran is the best one we’re likely to get. He argues that the reason we’re where we are is that the president convinced foreign countries to start joining with the US policy of economic sanctions in 2010 – and that ratcheted up the pressure on the Iranians. “But if the United States walks away from a deal that European and Asian governments support,” he adds, “those governments will not indefinitely maintain a sanctions regime that lacks domestic political support and costs them money.” They’ll be doing business with the Iranians again, so any attempt to negotiate will have less leverage behind it. Also, 29 of the nation’s top experts in nuclear weapons and arms control sent the president a letter praising the deal as tough and realistic.

  30. Hip replacements take a while to heal. I hope you’re getting plenty of exercise to help with the healing.

    So has the OKC Dept. of Transportation improved the roads in the last 5 years? (I’m trying to keep a straight face- asking).

  31. BiBi should be told in no uncertain terms to stay in his own back yard. Mind his 0wn business, if he want’s war fine, but do it with your own people and our money!!!All funds to Israel should be stopped NOW!!BiBi’s eyes have always shown the evil intent he has.

  32. netanyahoo is the Israeli fool who has been saying iran is 3 months away from a nuclear bomb for the last 15 or 20 years. this guy is quite possibly more evil than Dick Cheyney.

  33. You are so right knight4444! I have been thinking the same thing. Why do we coddle Netanyahu? People treat him like he’s freakin’ God! I get so sick of hearing politicians suck up to him. Don’t stop preaching your view because I think more and more people are starting to see the light.

  34. my fear is that netanyahoo might decide to go it alone and drop some bombs, or nukes, on iran. I have said this before- I think natanyahoo is the 3rd anti-Christ and his unquenchable thirst for war with iran will be our own downfall.

  35. Itis time that the mouse(Israel) stopped pushing the elephant (USA)! We must use our huge leverage and stop Israel from attacking Iran, and also stop Israel from attacking the Palistinians in Gaza.We must become neutral, and act with morality in our foreign policies.We must stop waging wars and dropping bombs on nations, who are not at war with us. A war with Iran could easily turn into WW III. The idiots in both of our political parties have no idea of the grave risks of attacking Iran in the Mid East!

  36. Thank you @Patty, stay tuned, theres plenty of very bright passionate people on this site, don’t be a stranger WELCOME ABOARD.

  37. Call our representatives and senators and tell Washingon if this deal doesn’t go through no more USA tax dollars to Israel.
    This country doesn’t need another war.

  38. Netanyahu…

    ***Stop trying to goad us into war with Iran!
    ***Stop your attempts to push us into supporting an Israeli war.
    ***Keep your nose out of American politics!
    ***Tend to your own business in Israel, or perhaps they should impeach you for being a traitor to your own country.

  39. Netanyahu is a con man, a snake oil salesman and a disreputable lemon car salesman. Remember that starting more than 8 years ago and up to today he has been telling the USA and the World that Iran is 3 months away from obtaining their first of many bombs. Even doing his little cheap show and tell on a white chalk board, a la Karl Rove. (Silly).
    Has Iran completed that bomb yet? NO! will they be able to in 3 months hence, as Bibi keeps warning us. With this deal NO!

    Bibi said many moons ago that a mushroom cloud will be hanging over his country by now. Has it? NO. But Bibi want’s us to believe his bogeyman, sky is falling, the “Iranians are coming, the Iranians are coming” rhetoric in order to …get more $$$$ for Israel’s defense spending. BTW what do they do with all that shit? Why do we give them so much shit? Stockpiles that they probably sell elsewhere in the dark. And BTW they have nuclear bombs too. So what’s the fear mongering really for? See my last answer.
