‘The Boys in Tehran Know Israel Has 200 Nukes Pointed at Them,’ Says Former Secretary of State Colin Powell in Leaked Email

Former US Secretary of State Colin Powell told a colleague last year that Israel has a slew of nuclear weapons pointed at Iran, according to emails released by hacking group DCLeaks and reported on by US foreign policy blog LobeLog on Wednesday.

In a March 2015 exchange between America’s former top diplomat and his current business partner, Jeffrey Leeds — about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s controversial speech to Congress to warn against the Iran nuclear deal that was being negotiated — Powell wrote:

Negotiators can’t get what he wants. Anyway, Iranians can’t use one [a nuclear weapon] if they finally make one.

The boys in Tehran know Israel has 200, all targeted on Tehran, and we have thousands.


As Akmdinijad (sic) [said], “What would we do with one, polish it?” I have spoken publicly about both nK and Iran. We’ll blow up the only thing they care about—regime survival. Where, how would they even test one?

This assertion about the existence of Israeli nukes, as LobeLog‘s Eli Clifton pointed out, is significant, because Jerusalem continues to maintain a policy of “nuclear ambiguity.”

Powell, who publicly endorsed the Iran deal a few months later, during an interview on NBC‘s “Meet the Press,” wrote a subsequent email to Leeds saying,

They [the Iranians] say, correctly, that they have every right to enrich [uranium] for energy. Russians helped build a power reactor at Busher. Can’t get enough sanctions to break them Lots of bs around about their progress. Bibi likes to say “a year away,” as do our intel guys.They say it every year. [It] ain’t that easy to do.

In another email exchange, this one in August 2015 with President Ronald Reagan’s former chief of staff Ken Duberstein, who – as Clifton explained, “suggested that Powell might refrain from endorsing the deal in a television interview where he would face questions about Hillary Clinton’s emails.”

But Powell was undeterred, and harshly criticized Council on Foreign Relations President Richard Haass and Ret. General David Petraeus for remaining on the fence about the nuclear agreement:

The Iran deal is a good one for the country and our alliances. Retired generals and admirals popping off. I have studied it pretty thoroughly…I have done emails before on tv. Have to deal with ISIS. Richard] Haass, Petraeus et all claiming to be undecided. BS, they are just protecting their future options. I don’t have or want any. [James] Baker, [George] Shultz know what’s right, as does Henry [Kissinger]. Brent [Scowcroft] showed some guts.

Duberstein later forwarded Powell a fundraising email sent out by former US Ambassador to the UN John Bolton, which called the nuclear deal “the single largest global security crisis.”

“Haha! What is he smoking?” Duberstein wrote.

According to a report in the Washington Post, the shady site that posted Powell’s two years’ worth of emails — in which he mocked and hurled epithets at Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Dick Cheney and others — is being linked to the Russian government. The FBI, the report said, is investigating the veracity of this suspicion
.

Powell is a retired four-star general in the US Army, who served as as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (1989-1993) during the Gulf War. He served as secretary of state under President George W. Bush from 2001 to 2005.

This article shows you just how Dumn and intelligent general can be or he is a symptom of affirmative action. He endorced Obama and thinks the Iranians are worried about their lives. He supports the Iranian deal. I

know a general and when I talk to him he has no concept, absolutely no understanding of the scripturally based hatred that Iran has for Israel. Some of them intellectualize every thing and slant it with a dose of political spin of the day, they then spout off publicy and expect everyone to bow to their opinion.

I knew when Powell endorsed Obama he was more than one brick shy of a full load. He will find everything right with the Iranian deal and will selectively overlook its draw backs, why?

Because black lives matter? Civil unrest in the America makes embiciles out of some of our best and reduces their opinions to lunacy. In my book all lines matter and Israeli lives matter in their book everything takes a back seat to black lives matter, black lives do matter but after some of powells remarks I wonder just how much.

He is ready to unleash a nuclear holocaust on Israel because it was his black brother who did the deal. Powell just admit it your stupid.

Colin Powell should know not to put things where they might be found like his "friend" Hillary Clinton! With "friends" like Colin Powell who needs enemies?

As the Iranians observed years ago, Israel is a "one bomb country." Even if Israel retaliated from submarine platforms, they might destroy a couple of cities and kill a lot of people (for which they would get disproportionate blame) - but it wouldn't bring Israel back.

In any case, the more likely scenario is Iran handing off nuclear materials to terror organizations. We would all know the origin of the material from the science, but it would make it harder for Israel to retaliate against Iran if it wasn't a direct attack.

Iran continues to press ahead with their centrifuge and other technological developments. "It ain't that easy to do"? They'll be there in a few years. Ten year delay doesn't mean jack when it comes to nuclear annihilation.

Oh, they are much closer than a few years! Check out the information below from "The Washington Institute" that reveals how many weeks it will take Iran to produce enough weapons-grade uranium for one nuclear weapon!

What all this means is that Iran's "breakout time" when they decide to "walk away" or announce that they have already "walked away" from the non-binding agreement is now basically zero from Obama's own mouth. Obama is truly the Neville Chamberlain of the 21st Century playing with Nuclear Weapons and a billion or so lives though HE will NEVER admit it! The world holds its collective breath just waiting for the dieing to begin. All ir will take is a small incident somewhere in or around Syria to light the fuse of conflagration to light the whole world on fire.
