Former Mossad Chief Wastes Netanyahu

Former Mossad Chief Wastes Netanyahu

A former chief of Israel’s Mossad spy agency slammed the Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s handling of the Iranian nuclear threat and underlined as “pointless” his upcoming speech to Congress.
Ahead of Netanyahu’s contentious speech to Congress, Meir Dagan said “the person who has caused the greatest strategic damage to Israel on the Iranian issue is the prime minister.”
The comments were published Friday in the Yediot Ahronot daily, AP reported.
Dagan has been a fierce critic of Netanyahu’s approach to Iran, emerging as a key opponent of a potential Israeli military attack against its nuclear facilities. He said Netanyahu’s trip to Washington, over White House objections, is “pointless and counterproductive.”
Dagan directed the Mossad from 2002 to 2010.
In addition, Susan Rice, the US National Security Advisor, said earlier this week that acceptance of an invitation to address the Congress, without the blessing of the White House, is destructive to US-Israeli ties.
Obama and several Democrats have said they will not attend the speech on March 3 in Washington.
