“There is one central player remarkably absent from the recent revelations concerning Israel’s decision not to bomb Iranian nuclear sites in 2011 and 2012 – the United States. According to Ehud Barak, former prime minister and defence minister, the US was not a factor when key decisions against a strike were made.
Israel is a notoriously self-centred political culture. But even so, the revelation that the US’ views were not centre stage in the two critical meetings, when Israel’s political and security establishments debated the merits of war against Iran, is unprecedented.”
