Dagan: I’m not going to discuss anything about this issue.

Stahl: Okay, but that’s pretty well known.

Dagan: Nice try.

Stahl: So you were dealing with the possibility of Iran getting a bomb for eight years.

Dagan: More than eight years.

Stahl: More than eight years. Did you fail?

Dagan: I could say one thing – that when I ended my role in Mossad, they still didn’t have a bomb.

If Iran’s nuclear aspirations are thwarted, it will not be by talk.

 

[1] Israel is the original victim of the “process” problem, trapped in an endless succession of talks, confidence building measures, and demands that it offer inducements (bribes) to its enemies in hopes of receiving some measure of satisfaction in return. Nothing the Palestinians did – the so-called “second intifada,” the Hamas rocket war, the official PA incitement to violence against Israel – has been deemed sufficient reason to stop the “peace process.”
