U.S., Israel Step Up Cooperation Against Iran, Overt and Covert

By Dan Raviv

Reports from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s last stop on a grueling 13-day trip — Jerusalem — make it clear that the United States and Israel are consulting very closely about what can be done to stop Iran’s nuclear program.
US-Israel, covert operations, spies against armageddon, israel spySpeaking with reporters covering her meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Secretary Clinton did not verbally emphasize peaceful methods — such as the sporadic negotiations expected to have another round soon, or the economic sanctions which become ever tighter.  She portrayed the Obama Administration as being in alignment with the Israeli government’s view that a nuclear-armed Iran is an unacceptable notion.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Monday the United States and Israel were “on the same page” in their determination to prevent Iran from achieving what the West fears its goal of building a nuclear bomb.  In Jerusalem on the last stop of an Asian and Middle East tour, Clinton said she and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “talked about concrete steps that we can take to continue to build the pressure” on Tehran.
In our book, Spies Against Armageddon, we report that covert cooperation between the intelligence communities of the United States and Israel has never been stronger: in general since 9/11, and more strongly after the Mossad turned its primary focus onto Iran.  Israel succeeded in getting America’s attention.  Having noted that — as they put it — America was distracted fully by Afghanistan, Iraq, and al-Qaeda, Israeli officials felt that for everyone’s good they would have to get the United States to recognize how dangerous Iran was becoming: especially if it were to develop nuclear weapons.
