We must kill the deal.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday unveiled a cache of secret files he says were obtained from inside a hidden Iranian site and clearly demonstrate that Tehran maintained a secret nuclear weapons program, despite declarations to the contrary.
U.S. Confirms Iran Working on Five Nuke Weapons
By Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, April 30, 2018:
Trump administration officials praise Netanyahu’s ‘powerful presentation’
U.S. officials who reviewed the secret documents confirmed their authenticity and said that Israel has shared the information fully with the United States, most likely to help build the case for Trump to abandon the nuclear deal, rather than try to fix what the White House views as a series of insurmountable flaws.
A State Department official confirmed to the Free Beacon Monday evening that it is “aware of the information just released” by Israel and is “examining it carefully.”
“The United States has reviewed many of the documents Israel has obtained relating to Iran’s nuclear weapons program,” an official confirmed to the Free Beacon. “We assess that the documents that we have reviewed are authentic.”
The State Department further confirmed that “new details in this information are consistent with a large body of evidence and intelligence the U.S. government has amassed over many years on Iran’s past clandestine nuclear weapons program,” according to the official.
While the administration’s analysis of the document cache is “ongoing,” officials said they “agree with the Israelis that…. this information provides new and compelling details about Iran’s past efforts to develop nuclear weapons deliverable by a Shahab-3 ballistic missile.”
In addition, the new “information indicates plans for Iran’s nuclear weapons program included building five nuclear weapons,” the official said. “It demonstrates once again that Iranian leaders have for years lied to the world and their own citizens when they claim Iran has never pursued nuclear weapons.”
The documents confirm a longstanding U.S. suspicion that “Iran has systematically hid evidence of clandestine weapons work from international inspectors,” according to the State Department official.
If there was ever any doubt, every struggling Iranian citizen must now realize that Iran has lost countless dollars from nuclear sanctions for one reason, and one reason alone: the Iranian regime’s reckless pursuit of nuclear weapons, weapons that Supreme Leader Khamenei personally insists are un-Islamic,” the official said. “It is long past time for Iran to come clean and cooperate with international inspections into its past weapons work in order to convince the world it is serious about never again pursuing nuclear weapons.”
Iran’s efforts to obfuscate this information will “be a key factor” in Trump’s decision on either stay in or withdraw from the nuclear deal on May 12, the official said.
