re: #189 Destro
You can play pick and choose all you want. Barak’s not infalliable, even if he’s the Defense Minister. Others in Israel’s defense and intel establishment think Iran is working on nukes, including the Mossad and Shin Bet (both are part of the intel side whose job it is to find out what Iran’s up to).
Moreover, Barak views can be justified as an attempt to downplay the possibility of an Israeli strike against Iran because he doesn’t think Israel has the pieces in place to make one work - a view shared by others who do think that Iran is working on a nuclear weapon.
Nice try though.
