    A post from back-when cries out for dredging up ...

    And apparently they realize when it's better to be sneaky than it is to go stomping around like a bull in a china shop, unlike certain former officials of this country who have thankfully been sent out to pasture.
    <blockquote>Israel has launched a covert war against Iran as an alternative to direct military strikes against Tehran's nuclear programme, US intelligence sources have revealed.

    It is using hitmen, sabotage, front companies and double agents to disrupt the regime's illicit weapons project, the experts say.

    The most dramatic element of the "decapitation" programme is the planned assassination of top figures involved in Iran's atomic operations.

    The aim is to slow down or interrupt Iran's research programme, without the gamble of a direct confrontation that could lead to a wider war.</blockquote>

    Very disappointed that any U.S. intelligence personnel, current or former, leaked this.
