Israel could launch a military strike on Iran before the United Nations General Assembly votes to recognize the existence of a Palestinian state as it is expected to do in the fall, a Middle East expert and former operative of the Central Intelligence Agency has said in a report in Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.
Robert Baer, who spent 21 years in the Middle East as part of CIA’s Directorate of Operations, pointed to a recent statement by former Mossad chief Meir Dagan, who warned of an Israeli attack on Iran.
He quoted Dagan as saying that such an attack would be “no bluff.” Baer, author of “See No Evil: The True Story of a Ground Soldier in CIA’s War on Terrorism,” also noted previous comments by Dagan suggested an Israeli attack on Iran could lead to a regional war.
Dagan also is on the public record as saying that a possible military attack on Iranian nuclear facilities would be “the stupidest thing I have ever heard. If anyone seriously considers (a military strike) he needs to understand that he’s dragging Israel into a regional war that it would not know how to get out of. The security challenge would become unbearable.”
