Not sure how we missed this last week, but Christopher Dickey had this interesting take on the battle of covert operations (from Iran’s side of things, that means terrorist attacks on civilians – but let’s not quibble about semantics) between Tehran and the U.S.-Israel alliance.
According to Dickey, there’s good news: the good guys are winning!
On almost every front in a wide-ranging covert war with Israel and the United States, Iran appears to be suffering major setbacks. Its nuclear program was disrupted by the Stuxnet computer worm in 2010 and at least one virus since. Its scientists have been attacked and five of them murdered. According to one source, recent leaks provided Western intelligence services with detailed information about work on the Iranian nuclear programme at the Parchin military complex, which may have encouraged the Americans and their allies to toughen their stand in the faltering talks meant to defuse the crisis.
