Our sources refute claims that Saturday's Iranian base blasts were caused by the CIA or Mossad.

The Arab Revolt and Libyan War Opened the Wrong Doors
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report October 7, 2011

The bid to replace toppled Arab regimes with pro-Western Arab democracies was a complete flop, the US and NATO intelligence chiefs meeting secretly in the third week of September agreed. In Libya, in particular the NATO operation on the side of the rebels opened the door for elements identified with Al Qaeda to move in on the capital and strategic locations.

No More Military Adventures for NATO in Syria or Yemen
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report October 7, 2011

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

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.

CIA chief David Petraeus
Al Qaeda resurgent in Mid East, Africa
DEBKAfile DEBKA Weekly October 4, 2011

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

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

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

Iran has already built a nuclear warhead pilot
DEBKAfile DEBKA Weekly July 5, 2011

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.

US-Israeli backdoor exchanges with Cairo to free alleged Israeli spy
DEBKAfile Special Report June 13, 2011

Jerusalem insisted Monday that no Cairo notification had been received of the arrest of dual US-Israeli citizen Ilan Grapel as an alleged Israeli spy, while Washington is checking to see if any word came through.

Islamabad is fighting both US tactics. debkafile: The feud could boomerang against Washington as a Taliban revenge attack.
