From the 2001 move Spy Game:
Tom Bishop (Brad Pitt): Ah, @!#!$&%!#!, you just… You don’t just trade these people like they’re baseball cards! It’s not a f****** game!
Nathan Muir: Oh, yes it is. It’s exactly what it is. And it’s no kid’s game either. This is a whole other game. And it’s serious and it’s dangerous. And it’s not one you want to lose.
The spy game of secrets is intricate and never ending. Since there were countries, we have all spied on each other, and have known and kept certain facts to ourselves in favor of our friends and disfavor to our enemies. Yes, Leftists, peace loving people have enemies, and spying is what we do.
One of the greatest kept secrets was Israel’s nuclear weapons capabilities, something Israel has never admitted or denied, and it took a massive hit this week when a punk named Grant Smith, founder of an anti-Israel group called the Institute for Research Middle Eastern Policy, Inc. filed in January 2012 a Freedom Of Information Act request. That request was released February 2 of this year. A little about IRMER (from Breitbart.com):
Smith’s Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy organizes an anti-Israel conference each year in Washington, D.C. Last year, the conference featured speakers from anti-Semitic and pro-Islamist publications. During the Q & A session, a speaker openly called for education about the supposed “Zionist-Nazi collaboration” during the Holocaust, while another endorsed the possibility that “Israel had a hand in 9/11.”
So much of news is timing, and it doesn’t take a genius to deduce that the narcissistic and petulant man currently called president of the United States released this information as a way of revenge for newly reelected Benjamin Netanyahu speaking before Congress March 3.
While the irradiated toothpaste is out of the tube, there is a bit of good news. In addition to information supporting Israel’s advanced electronics and communications equipment — more advanced than the US, by the way — it appears Israel is top notch in hydrogen:
From the Washington Examiner:
Included in the report was the revelation that Israel was “developing the kind of codes which will enable them to make hydrogen bombs. That is, codes which detail fission and fusion processes on a microscopic and macroscopic level” in the 1980s.
Writing in the Jewish Daily Forward, Michael Karpin, Israeli journalist and author of a book about Israel’s nuclear ability, expressed his “astonishment” at the report’s release.
“I have never seen an official American document disclosing such extensive revelation on subjects that until now were regarded by both administrations as unspeakable secrets,” Karpin wrote. “It should be emphasized that in the history of the relations between the two countries, there is no other published official American document that mentions in any way the Israelis’ development of hydrogen bombs.”
To the leaders of Israel and her people living insider her borders and abroad: I know I speak for many Americans when I apologize for how the current administration has treated you in the past six years, and how our political Left has treated you since WWII. We will continue to change our elected and appointed representatives as fast as we can to rebuild our relationship. In the meantime, do what you have to do to ensure the safety of your people and continue your way of life. The American people are behind you even though a select group clearly is not.
Are we done ascribing good intentions to the American Left?
