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.
Carneys 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 Israels concerns. Thats 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.

They took a break from beatin' it long enough to come up with this gem.
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.
Good Grief!!! Another national security leak from the president’s spokesman no less! Of course Obama will have the same guy deny that they knew anything about it.
This is absolutely, no-doubt, something that should NOT have been said.
We need a new classification on documents (noforn orcon...nowh...)
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.
You'd think with Obama, NOFORN would suffice...
How can you see what Iran is doing when your head is up your ass?
You said it.
How stupid can this administration be? If you want to assure Israel, do it privately.....otherwise they are jeopardizing their security for the purpose of winning votes.
Doesn’t ANYONE in the White House appreciate OPSEC??
I wonder how many people will be suspected, detained and tortured over this little tid-bit...
What the hell??? Why ‘n fuch is this being said in public??
Completely insane. And, yes, as other here have pointed out, treasonous.
We have eyes inside the nuclear facilities and we will know in real time...”
INTEL continues to drip... drip... drip...
