Whatever one thinks about Israel, Iran, or the Trump Administration, we can draw a number of inferences from the Israeli leader’s display of dozens of file folders and compact disks. The first is that the Israelis would not have offered the revelation unless they knew in advance that the United States would attest to the authenticity of the stolen Iranian documents (President Trump immediately indicated his approval of Netanyahu’s presentation). Least of all would they have done so hours after the departure from Israel of the new American Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo. The second is that the apparent use of bunker-buster bombs against an Iranian base in Syria this morning just after Pompeo’s departure from Israel is a warning to Iran as to what will happen if it attempts to develop nuclear weapons.
