CBS News – Meir Dagan has been described as “hard-charging” and “stops at nothing.” For more than eight years, Dagan made full use of those qualities as chief of Mossad, Israel’s intelligence agency, where he focused on keeping Iran from developing a nuclear weapon. When that job ended, Dagan did something unheard of for an ex-Mossad chief: he spoke out publicly, voicing opposition to Israel launching preemptive airstrikes against Iran’s nuclear facilities anytime soon. Dagan believes the Iranian regime is a rational one and even its president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad – who has called for Israel to be annihilated – acts in a somewhat rational way when it comes to Iran’s nuclear ambitions.

    This was an interesting interview by Leslie Stahl.
    I have been watching her for a number of years and find her to be truthful and honest in every respect.
    Keep up the good work and I will keep tuning you in as long as I am able.

    The way the American Press has hindered any effort from Vietnam to the Present for
    Victory in any conflict, what is Meir Dagan doing.

    They are using this interview, against Israel’s future effort to stop Iran. They will make a
    case with it for their leader, Obama.

    They want to give Obama time before the election, regardless of Israel’s safety and well being. He comes first to them. They and He would sacrifice very Israel’s existence, I’m
    convinced of that. Obama’s destructive agenda comes first. Why would a man like Dagan
    tell them anything. Does not make sense. Puzzled.
