Revealed: Trump team hired spy firm for ‘dirty ops’ on Iran arms deal
The Guardian ^ | May 5, 2018

Israeli agency told to find incriminating material on Obama diplomats who negotiated deal with Tehran Donald Trump promised the Israeli leader that Iran would never have nuclear weapons.

Photograph: Manuel Balce Ceneta/AP Aides to Donald Trump, the US president, hired an Israeli private intelligence agency to orchestrate a “dirty ops” campaign against key individuals from the Obama administration who helped negotiate the Iran nuclear deal, the Observer can reveal.

People in the Trump camp contacted private investigators in May last year to “get dirt” on Ben Rhodes, who had been one of Barack Obama’s top national security advisers, and Colin Kahl, deputy assistant to Obama, as part of an elaborate attempt to discredit the deal.

The extraordinary revelations come days before Trump’s 12 May deadline to either scrap or continue to abide by the international deal limiting Iran’s nuclear programme.

Jack Straw, who as foreign secretary was involved in earlier efforts to restrict Iranian weapons, said: “These are extraordinary and appalling allegations but which also illustrate a high level of desperation by Trump and [the Israeli prime minister] Benjamin Netanyahu, not so much to discredit the deal but to undermine those around it.”

One former high-ranking British diplomat with wide experience of negotiating international peace agreements, requesting anonymity, said: “It’s bloody outrageous to do this. The whole point of negotiations is to not play dirty tricks like this.”

Well, I certainly hope that he did so. The Iran Deal is a fetid pile of dingoes kidneys.

Well, if he could trust the FBI, CIA and other deep staters, he wouldn't have to go around them, would he.

Leftist klaptrapbthat blows its cover ( trying to blame the Jews) right at the start. Yes, Bibi is concerned about the Iranian threat. But Israel is only the Iranian islamonazis’ lesser target. USA is and always has been their “Great Satan” to be nuked first. Actually, first, second, third, 4th, 5th, 6th, and seventh -per their own words, plans, threats. Any responsible American official doesn’t need any encouragement from Jerusalem to remove the Iranian threat. None at all. (. It was only the enemy agent previously in our white house that set America up for nuclear destruction from his Iranian islamonazi bff’s. )
