US Declassifies Document Revealing Israel's Nuclear Program

In a development that has largely been missed by mainstream media, the Pentagon early last month quietly declassified a Department of Defense top-secret document detailing Israel's nuclear program, a highly covert topic that Israel has never formally announced to avoid a regional nuclear arms race, and which the US until now has respected by remaining silent.

But by publishing the declassified document from 1987, the US reportedly breached the silent agreement to keep quiet on Israel's nuclear powers for the first time ever, detailing the nuclear program in great depth.

The timing of the revelation is highly suspect, given that it came as tensions spiraled out of control between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and US President Barack Obama ahead of Netanyahu's March 3 address in Congress, in which he warned against the dangers of Iran's nuclear program and how the deal being formed on that program leaves the Islamic regime with nuclear breakout capabilities.

Another highly suspicious aspect of the document is that while the Pentagon saw fit to declassify sections on Israel's sensitive nuclear program, it kept sections on Italy, France, West Germany and other NATO countries classified, with those sections blocked out in the document.

The 386-page report entitled "Critical Technological Assessment in Israel and NATO Nations" gives a detailed description of how Israel advanced its military technology and developed its nuclear infrastructure and research in the 1970s and 1980s.

Israel is "developing the kind of codes which will enable them to make hydrogen bombs. That is, codes which detail fission and fusion processes on a microscopic and macroscopic level," reveals the report, stating that in the 1980s Israelis were reaching the ability to create bombs considered a thousand times more powerful than atom bombs.

The revelation marks a first in which the US published in a document a description of how Israel attained hydrogen bombs.

The report also notes research laboratories in Israel "are equivalent to our Los Alamos, Lawrence Livermore and Oak Ridge National Laboratories," the key labs in developing America's nuclear arsenal.

Israel's nuclear infrastructure is "an almost exact parallel of the capability currently existing at our National Laboratories," it adds.

How Feckless Bureaucrats Threaten The Development Of Safer Foods

The recent regulatory approvals of genetically engineered potatoes and apples with consumer-friendly traits are a welcome development, but unscientific, excessive and hugely expensive regulation systematically inhibits innovation.

Last Friday (March 20) the FDA certified that several new varieties of genetically engineered potatoes and apples are safe to eat, which follows closely the Department of Agriculture’s approval of them for unlimited cultivation and sale.

That will be welcome news to many consumers, but it was a tough row to hoe: The government’s regulation of these and similar products is a morass of unscientific policies, incompetence and politics.

By withholding or delaying approvals of new products that offer improvements in safety, agronomic traits and appeal to consumers, for years federal regulators have done their best to prevent U.S. researchers and companies from realizing transformative changes in American agriculture using the most modern techniques of genetic engineering.

In spite of the scientific community’s best efforts to educate them, the feds’ have failed to appreciate that the particular genetic technique employed to construct new strains is irrelevant to risk, as is the source of a snippet of DNA that may be moved from one organism to another. What matters are the traits that are related to risk, such as allergenicity or the presence of toxins, not the use of one technique or another. But regulators have consistently chosen to focus on the latter, and redundant, prolonged case-by-case reviews are the rule for organisms modified with molecular genetic engineering techniques. This is a particular problem at “gatekeeper” agencies, which must grant an affirmative approval before a product can be legally sold.
