White House: We Have Eyes Inside Iran's Nuclear Facilities
Arutz Sheva ^ | 11/8/12 | Elad Benari

Posted on 08/11/2012 10:27:09 AM PDT by Eleutheria5

White House spokesman Jay Carney sought to reassure Israel on Friday when he said in a press briefing that the U.S. has real-time information on the Iranian nuclear program.

“We have ‘eyes’ inside the nuclear facilities and we will know in real time when and if Iran decides to cross the threshold and develop nuclear weapons,” Carney said, according to a report by Channel 10 News.

Carney’s remarks were made in response to recent assessments in Israel, especially those of Defense Minister Ehud Barak, according to which the Americans understand that the Iranian threat is becoming an increased concern.

“The president remains committed to preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons,” he was quoted as having said.

“We are leading an international move to enforce the sanctions, which even the president of Iran has called the most severe sanctions ever imposed on a country,” Carney continued. “Hardly a week goes by in which we do not worsen the sanctions.”

He reiterated that Israel and the U.S. are coordinated on the Iranian nuclear issue, saying, “We share Israel’s concerns. That’s why we are directing this concentrated and unprecedented effort to cause the regime in Tehran to change its behavior.”

A report in Ha'aretz on Thursday, citing American officials, said that a new U.S. report indicates that Iran has made a great deal of progress in its nuclear program in recent months.

According to the report, President Barack Obama has seen the National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) report, prepared by U.S. government intelligence groups.

“We have ‘eyes’ inside the nuclear facilities and we will know...”

Is this something we should know or another WH leak?

I have to wonder if anyone at the CIA considers themselves to have a serious job any more or if they realize they have merely become a political prop.

These quizzlings don’t seem to be able to control themselves. If it is true, why tell the entire world? He might just as well have told the Iranians on White House Stationary. What pricks. Someone is going to die due to these types of pronouncements.

It is a warning to Iran to clean the software more diligently. Flame isn’t the last one. But, then, if they have more than 80 points of IQ over there they already know that.

Oh, brother! Iran has declared for years they are trying to make a nuclear weapon. They "crossed the line" years ago.

God, these people in the WH are more dangerous to us than Bin Laden was.

Israel knows what needs to be done, and ought to do it (in her timing).

If anything, Carney’s utterance should strengthen Israel’s resolve and sense of urgency. The Obamaci cannot be trusted in any way.

The White House has no idea what is happening in Iran's nuclear facilities

Before he is done I fully expect him to release the names, addresses and phone numbers of anyone anywhere in the world who has ever provided any information to agency workers.

The damage to US intel will last multiple generations.

I will refrain from making any comments or speculation about self-preservation instincts of wet work operatives.

They want to reassure Jewish and Christian voters who care about Israel, with a wink and a nod at left wing Jewish voters who do not. Reassure Israel? We are beyond being reassured by this administration. What they lack in stupidity, they make up in venality.

“Someone is going to die due to these types of pronouncements.”

This administration does not care. To them foreign agents that work for us are nothing but political tools to be abandoned if needed for Obama’s political ambition.

If the US Army released information like this, the individual that released it would be brought up on charges of treason.
Obama is truly a loathsome creature.

Time for another WH correction tommorrow:

We HAD eyes. The Iranians found out somehow and we lost contact. It's Bush's fault and we have to stop Romney from continuing Bush's horrible policy that is still killing our sources.
