Pincus: Israel Blazed the Trail for Iran in Developing a Nuclear ProgramPosted: March 11, 2015
This article by Walter Pincus in the Washington Post is a must-read. It’s a very timely takedown of Netanyahu’s criticism of Iran in his speech to Congress last week. Basically, Pincus calls Netanyahu out as a hypocrite, on the basis that Israel has in the past been guilty of much of what Netanyahu now argues Iran is doing.
This isn’t new information or anything, but I respect Pincus for having the guts to say it so directly.
Frankly, this narrative is exactly what I’m thinking of when I go to conferences and hear Israeli officials criticizing Iran for its deceitful, clandestine, and evil development of nuclear weapons. I’ve written about this before here.
