Wikileaks on Monday began releasing nearly 5 million documents from security firm Stratfor and one of those leaks claims that Israel officials actually carried out the bombing of Iran nuclear facilities way back in 2001.
A source in a Stratfor email says rumors of a pending Israeli attack are nothing more than:
“A diversion. The Israelis already destroyed all the Iranian nuclear infrastructure on the ground weeks ago.”
In an original email dated November 14, 2001 it’s suggest that Israel sent commandos into Iran, possibly with the help of Kurdish militants to blow up Iranian nuclear power plants.
The email called the program the “let’s bomb Iran” campaign and it claimed according to Raw Story that the attack “was ordered by the EU leaders to divert the public attention from their at home financial problems.”
In response to the email Wikileaks founder Julian Assange says it shows that Stratfor holds nothing more than low-grade Middle East intelligence. Assange slams Stratfor for writing reports based on just a single Middle East source. Julian then claims that the agency spied on activist groups for multinationals while making investments after using private intelligence.
According to Assange:
“What we have discovered is a company that is a private intelligence Enron.”
Do you think Stratfor’s intelligence is tragically flawed and provides little help to intelligence officers who are attempting to make important decisions about national and international security?
