Thumbs down Obama Administration Declassifies Report on Israel's Nuclear Program

Israeli National News
In a development that has largely been missed by mainstream media, the Pentagon early last month quietly declassified a Department of Defense top-secret document detailing Israel's nuclear program, a highly covert topic that Israel has never formally announced to avoid a regional nuclear arms race, and which the US until now has respected by remaining silent.

But by publishing the declassified document from 1987, the US reportedly breached the silent agreement to keep quiet on Israel's nuclear powers for the first time ever, detailing the nuclear program in great depth.

The timing of the revelation is highly suspect, given that it came as tensions spiraled out of control between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and US President Barack Obama ahead of Netanyahu's March 3 address in Congress, in which he warned against the dangers of Iran's nuclear program and how the deal being formed on that program leaves the Islamic regime with nuclear breakout capabilities.

Another highly suspicious aspect of the document is that while the Pentagon saw fit to declassify sections on Israel's sensitive nuclear program, it kept sections on Italy, France, West Germany and other NATO countries classified, with those sections blocked out in the document.

The revelation marks a first in which the US published in a document a description of how Israel attained hydrogen bombs. The report also notes research laboratories in Israel "are equivalent to our Los Alamos, Lawrence Livermore and Oak Ridge National Laboratories," the key labs in developing America's nuclear arsenal.

Israel's nuclear infrastructure is "an almost exact parallel of the capability currently existing at our National Laboratories," it adds.

Aside from nuclear capabilities, the report revealed Israel at the time had "a totally integrated effort in systems development throughout the nation," with electronic combat all in one "integrated system, not separated systems for the Army, Navy and Air Force." It even acknowledged that in some cases, Israeli military technology "is more advanced than in the U.S."

Declassifying the report comes at a sensitive timing as noted above, and given that the process to have it published was started three years ago, that timing is seen as having been the choice of the American government.

Obama revenge for Netanyahu's Congress talk? 1987 report on Israel's top secret nuclear program released in unprecedented move.

In a development that has largely been missed by mainstream media, the Pentagon early last month quietly declassified a Department of Defense top-secret document detailing Israel's nuclear program, a highly covert topic that Israel has never formally announced to avoid a regional nuclear arms race, and which the US until now has respected by remaining silent.

Another highly suspicious aspect of the document is that while the Pentagon saw fit to declassify sections on Israel's sensitive nuclear program, it kept sections on Italy, France, West Germany and other NATO countries classified, with those sections blocked out in the document.

The 386-page report entitled "Critical Technological Assessment in Israel and NATO Nations" gives a detailed description of how Israel advanced its military technology and developed its nuclear infrastructure and research in the 1970s and 1980s.

Israel is "developing the kind of codes which will enable them to make hydrogen bombs. That is, codes which detail fission and fusion processes on a microscopic and macroscopic level," reveals the report, stating that in the 1980s Israelis were reaching the ability to create bombs considered a thousand times more powerful than atom bombs.

The revelation marks a first in which the US published in a document a description of how Israel attained hydrogen bombs.

The report also notes research laboratories in Israel "are equivalent to our Los Alamos, Lawrence Livermore and Oak Ridge National Laboratories," the key labs in developing America's nuclear arsenal.

Israel's nuclear infrastructure is "an almost exact parallel of the capability currently existing at our National Laboratories," it adds.

"As far as nuclear technology is concerned the Israelis are roughly where the U.S. was in the fission weapon field in about 1955 to 1960," the report reveals, noting a time frame just after America tested its first hydrogen bomb.

Institute for Defense Analysis, a federally funded agency operating under the Pentagon, penned the report back in 1987.

Aside from nuclear capabilities, the report revealed Israel at the time had "a totally integrated effort in systems development throughout the nation," with electronic combat all in one "integrated system, not separated systems for the Army, Navy and Air Force." It even acknowledged that in some cases, Israeli military technology "is more advanced than in the U.S."

Declassifying the report comes at a sensitive timing as noted above, and given that the process to have it published was started three years ago, that timing is seen as having been the choice of the American government.

US journalist Grant Smith petitioned to have the report published based on the Freedom of Information Act. Initially the Pentagon took its time answering, leading Smith to sue, and a District Court judge to order the Pentagon to respond to the request.

Smith, who heads the Institute for Research: Middle East Policy, reportedly said he thinks this is the first time the US government has officially confirmed that Israel is a nuclear power, a status that Israel has long been widely known to have despite being undeclared.

Exclamation Obama Administration Declassifies Secret Report on Israeli Nuclear Program Submit

Obama Administration Declassifies Secret Report on Israeli Nuclear Program
Submit

Just before Israeli PM Netanyahu addressed a joint meeting of Congress on March 3rd, the Pentagon declassified a secret 1987 report prepared by the Institute for Defense Analysis revealing Israel's classified nuclear program. The release was occassioned by a Freedom of Information Act request by the virulently anti-Israel Institute for Reearch -Middle East Policy. A long held mutual understanding that to declassify the secret report would expose the Jewish nation's known but unrevealed nuclear weapons capabilities thereby making it a pariah state who is not presently a signatory to the Non Proliferation Treaty, that Iran is a signatory. This unilateral action by the Obama Administration would would bring international pressure on Israel to become a signatory of the UN Non Proliferation Treaty and be subject to intrusive UN IAEA inspections. A further consequence of the Administration's declassification of the secret report on Israel's nuclear program is it would provide a targeting file on possible attack scenarios in any retaliatory exchange with rogue nuclear states. Perhaps, Iran if it became a nuclear threshold state under the proposed political framework agreement of the P5+1, should that become a reality. This action is seen by many analysts as further evidence of the revenge campaign unleashed by the Obama White House following the re-election of Prime Minister Netanyahu on March 17th now poised to form a ruling coalition with a majority in the new Knesset.

by Jordan Schachtel25 Mar 2015Washington, D.C.1240

The Pentagon has declassified a document that was once labeled “top-secret,” which goes into sophisticated detail about Israel’s nuclear weapons program. The document was released quietly just prior to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s March 3 speech to a joint session of Congress.

Israel has never officially confirmed or denied the existence of a nuclear weapon’s program within its borders.

The Pentagon declassified sections covering Israel’s nuclear program, but “kept sections on Italy, France, West Germany and other NATO countries classified, with those sections blocked out in the document,” Israel National News reported.

The 386-page top-secret memo, titled, “Critical Technological Assessment in Israel and NATO Nations,” goes into great detail about how Israel turned into a nuclear power in the 1970s and 80s.

“As far as nuclear technology is concerned the Israelis are roughly where the U.S. was in the fission weapon field in about 1955 to 1960,” the report assesses.

The report was written by the Institute for Defense Analysis in 1987, which was federally funded and contracted by the Pentagon.

Israel is “developing the kind of codes which will enable them to make hydrogen bombs. That is, codes which detail fission and fusion processes on a microscopic and macroscopic level,” the report states.

The report commends that the Israelis found “ingeniously clever” solutions to solve its problems in advancing the nuclear program, largely due to the “ingenious Israeli inventions” at a “key research and development laboratory in Israel.”

The Pentagon declassified the document after Grant Smith, an activist who heads a radical anti-Israel group, filed a Freedom of Information Act request, according to reports.

Smith’s Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy organizes an anti-Israel conference each year in Washington, D.C. Last year, the conference featured speakers from anti-Semitic and pro-Islamist publications. During the Q & A session, a speaker openly called for education about the supposed “Zionist-Nazi collaboration” during the Holocaust, while another endorsed the possibility that “Israel had a hand in 9/11.”

Exclamation Obama's 'jihad against jews' spills israel's nuke secrets

OBAMA'S 'JIHAD AGAINST JEWS' SPILLS ISRAEL'S NUKE SECRETS
White House declassifies details of Middle East democracy's defenses
By BOB UNRUH




http://www.wnd.com/2015/03/obamas-ji...-nuke-secrets/


In a move blasted by commentators as part of President Obama’s “jihad against Jews,” the White House has abruptly declassified details of Israel’s nuclear program.

According to Israel National News, the Obama administration declassified a Department of Defense top-secret document with details of Israel’s assets, “a highly covert topic that Israel has never formally announced to avoid a regional nuclear arms race.”

The report said until now, the U.S. has respected that effort by remaining silent.

“But by publishing the declassified document from 1987, the U.S. reportedly breached the silent agreement to keep quiet on Israel’s nuclear powers for the first time ever, detailing the nuclear program in great depth,” the report said.

It openly questioned, “Obama revenge for Netanyahu’s Congress talk,” and other commentators were more direct.

At Shoebat.com, started by a former Muslim terrorist turned Christian, was the blunt headline “Obama’s evil revenge on Netanyahu continues.”

Pamela Geller, on her Atlas Shrugs blog, called it “Obama’s jihad against the Jews.”

“Obama is sick, sick with Jew-hatred – unbalanced, unhinged, a danger to this this country, our allies, the world. Israel’s nuclear program, whatever it may be, is purely existential insurance. If they have a nuclear weapon, they have had it for 50 years and have never used it, despite the decades-long Muslim wars against the Jews,” she wrote.

“Israel has shared its secrets with the U.S. for decades. They never imagined a jihadist in the White House.”

Israel National News said the “timing of the revelation is highly suspect, given that it came as tensions spiraled out of control between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and U.S. President Barack Obama ahead of Netanyahu’s March 3 address in Congress, in which he warned against the dangers of Iran’s nuclear program and how the deal being formed on that program leaves the Islamic regime with nuclear breakout capabilities.”

The speech to Congress was at the invitation of Congress, and Obama reportedly went, according to one published headline, into a “pout” because he was not consulted on the plans. Obama’s relations with Israel’s elected leader have never been better than rocky during his White House tenure.

Obama later publicly said he didn’t pay much attention to the speech and insisted there was nothing new in it.

Just days later, Netanyahu won a sweeping victory in a national election, despite the reported organized opposition from the Obama administration.

WND reported extensively on a non-profit that had been given U.S. taxpayer money to defeat Netanyahu.

The OneVoice Movement at one point featured and promoted a link to the State Department and featured its logo, which later was removed.

OneVoice is a U.S.-U.K. non-profit sponsoring V15, a new Israeli political action group that led a get-out-the-vote-organizing drive aimed at replacing Netanyahu’s government with a center-left coalition.

OneVoice’s offices in Tel Aviv were used as the campaign headquarters for V15′s anti-Netanyahu effort, as WND was first to report.

It was OneVoice that reportedly hired 270 Strategies, a consulting firm whose senior leadership is comprised mostly of former top staffers for President Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign. 270 Strategies has been consulting in V15′s campaign.

When the links were revealed, Fox News quoted a source saying a bipartisan U.S. Senate committee with subpoena powers had started investigating the possibility the Obama administration may have aided OneVoice’s efforts to defeat Netanyahu via grants from the State Department.

OneVoice received a State Department grant for $350,000.

Israel National News noted another “suspicious aspect” of the U.S. government’s decision was that “while the Pentagon saw fit to declassify sections on Israel’s sensitive nuclear program, it kept sections on Italy, France, West Germany and other NATO countries classified, with those sections blocked out in the document.”

The report, called the “Critical Technological Assessment in Israel and NATO Nations,” describes how Israel advanced its technology and obtained a “nuclear infrastructure and research in the 1970s and 1980s.”

INN said the revelation “marks a first in which the U.S. published in a document a description of how Israel attained hydrogen bombs.”

The report describes Israel’s facilities that “are equivalent to our Los Alamos, Lawrence Livermore and Oak Ridge National Laboratories,” where the U.S. developed its nuclear program.

According to INN, the report by the Institute for Defense Analysis in 1987, said that “as far as nuclear technology is concerned the Israelis are roughly where the U.S. was in the fission weapon field in about 1955 to 1960.”

I read most of the report and I don't understand why anyone thinks a report on what the CIA feels was Israel's nuclear capabilities over 30 years ago can harm Israel. In fact, the author was impressed by Israel and several times mentions how Israel had many ingenious solutions to technical problems. The report has very little specific technical information and is more of a general discussion. Many items in the report were anecdotal stories and not factual. While the report release may be intended to embarrass Israel by providing further evidence Israel has nuclear weapons technology I do not believe it harms Israel's technical secrets.

It weakens Israel's bargaining position and more importantly, it leads down a slippery slope.
