Top US general: Iran's dangerous game could draw Mid East and US into conflict
DEBKAfile Special Report December 21, 2011, 8:45 AM (GMT+02:00)

Hours after US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told CBS that Iran could build a nuclear bomb in a year or less, Gen. Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint US Chiefs of Staff, issued a warning: "Iran is playing a dangerous game that could ensnare the Middle East, the Middle East and others into conflict and a renewed arms race. Don't push it." The loss of the drone is not the end of US efforts, he said, adding: "America is sharing intelligence with Israel."

Whoever Unlocked the Stealth Drone's Secrets also Broke into CIA HQ at Langley
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report December 15, 2011, 11:40 PM (GMT+02:00)

The US will not review its reconnaissance drone flights over Iran for fear they will also be downed and captured like the RQ-170. Iran could not have accomplished this coup alone because it would have required the technology for filtering through billions of coded communications relayed from Langley to ...

Who Gave Iran the Technology for Trapping the US Stealth Drone?
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report December 9, 2011, 12:32 AM (GMT+02:00)

Iran's electronic trap for snaring the Lockheed Martin RQ-170 Sentinel, one of the world's most secret drone programs in almost perfect condition, must be accounted a huge military and intelligence coup and a landmark in the long tussle over Tehran's nuclear program. It may have acquired the technology for its ...

Has the Drone's Loss Put Paid to US and Israeli Assault Plans for Iran?
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report December 9, 2011, 12:32 AM (GMT+02:00)

The US is to shelve its covert war against Iran's nuclear program and any plans for a direct military attack until it discovers how Iran came to capture the top-secret RQ-170 reconnaissance drone complete with its secrets. Israel too will have to revamp its plans of attack before risking ...

Iran displays captured US RQ-170 drone
US, Israel shocked by undamaged captured drone
DEBKAfile Special Report December 8, 2011, 7:25 PM (GMT+02:00)

Iran exhibited the top-secret US stealth drone RQ-170 Sentinel captured on Sunday, Dec. 4. Its almost perfect condition confirmed Tehran's claim that the UAV was downed by a cyber attack, meaning it was brought in undamaged by an electronic warfare ambush. This is a major debacle for the stealth technology the US uses in its warplanes and the drone technology developed by the US and Israel.  It obliges both to revise their strike plans against Iran's nuclear program.

Beating the "Persian Carpet" against Western Assaults
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report December 1, 2011, 10:35 PM (GMT+02:00)

The West and Israel have no option but to admit the failure of a decade of sanctions, military threats, diplomatic penalties, cyber war and covert operations to abort Iran's drive for a nuclear bomb. Tehran has never wavered from its goal, citing the "Persian Carpet Doctrine" as its secret ...

Iran's late missile chief Brig. Hassan Moghadam
Iran will have five nukes by April 2012. Only 2-3 months left for military option
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report November 14, 2011, 3:13 PM (GMT+02:00)

By April 2012 Iran will have five nuclear bombs or warheads, says intelligence reaching US president Barack Obama and relayed to Jewish leaders at a closed meeting in New York Sunday, Nov. 13, debkafile's sources report.  The window of opportunity for stopping Iran attaining a nuclear weapon will shut down in late March, after which military action would generate radioactive contamination across the Gulf oil region. Our sources refute claims that Saturday's Iranian base blasts were caused by the CIA or Mossad.

No More Military Adventures for NATO in Syria or Yemen
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report October 7, 2011, 12:56 AM (GMT+02:00)

The consensus of US and Western intelligence chiefs at their closed door meeting in Langley was that NATO should count itself out of further military interventions in Arab uprisings in the coming year – especially in Syria - after its mistakes in Libya. Reliance on Turkey was seen as a letdown. The Yemeni crisis was judged more dangerous to broader regions of the Middle East and East Africa than the Syrian conflict.

US: No Iranian N-Bomb before 2015. Its Program Is Dogged by Glitches
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report October 7, 2011, 12:56 AM (GMT+02:00)

The new US Intelligence estimate for Iran to attain a nuclear bomb is now 2015-2016. Tehran is years behind schedule due to its technical inability to construct a containment shell for a bomb and get its new, advanced centrifuges working properly for enriching uranium to 60 percent at Fordo.  However, US spymasters confirm that Iran had made progress in ballistics, building missiles with more powerful engines capable of longer ranges and greater accuracy than ever before.

Al Qaeda resurgent in Mid East, Africa
DEBKAfile DEBKA Weekly October 4, 2011, 12:30 PM (GMT+02:00)

Away from the optimistic hype surrounding the "Arab Spring" – especially in Libya - and the killing of Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen, the coming DEBKA-Net-Weekly out Friday reveals how Western intelligence chiefs secretly sized up the consequences of both at their first conference in ten months.
Their outlook was far from rosy. The West is nowhere near its goals in the Arab world and the war on al Qaeda faces big obstacles in new places.

Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz
Israel sets up "September Commands" though no intel on Palestinian disorders
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report August 12, 2011, 12:56 PM (GMT+02:00)

Israel's military, police and Shin Bet security service are drilling extreme scenarios of possible Palestinian disturbances, mass rallies or even terrorist attacks in September – although there is no specific intelligence of a security threat in the offing. The authorities have also set up "September Command Centers" so as not to be caught off guard. The intelligence updates fed them on Palestinian activities contain no signs so far of organized Palestinian preparations for disorders beyond some talk at local Fatah cell level.

The Stuxnet malworm - at it again
Stuxnet returns to bedevil Iran's nuclear systems
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report July 20, 2011, 4:35 PM (GMT+02:00)

debkafile's intelligence sources report that the Stuxnet malworm which played havoc with Iran's nuclear program for eleven months was not purged after all. Tehran never did overcome the disruptions caused by Stuxnet or restore its centrifuges to smooth and normal operation as was claimed. Indeed, Iran finally resorted to the only sure-fire cure, scrapping all the tainted machines and replacing them with new ones – as was indicated Tuesday by an announcement in Tehran.

Iran Assembles Nuclear Fuel, Missiles and Warheads
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report July 8, 2011, 12:20 AM (GMT+02:00)

Western and Israeli intelligence missed Iran's spectacular nuclear fast-forward by miscalculating its timelines. It now appears that by 2012, Tehran will have around four-to-six bombs or warheads in stock and have tested ICBMs for their delivery. Uranium enrichment will be raised to 60 percent by relocating the plants from Natanz ...

nuclear warhead
Iran has already built a nuclear warhead pilot
DEBKAfile DEBKA Weekly July 5, 2011, 11:44 AM (GMT+02:00)

The latest DEBKA-Net-Weekly out Friday uncovered Iran's surreptitious leaps and bounds toward a home-made nuclear weapon. Tehran has not only executed four nuclear-capable missile tests, but actually constructed a nuclear warhead prototype.
This issue showed how Tehran has crossed every red line set by the West against Iran acquiring nuclear arms by furtively exploiting the months of furious Arab unrest for high speed, undisturbed progress. Western and Israeli intelligence are now waking up to some unpleasant surprises.
