U.S. Publishes Details of Secret Israeli Military Base

Some clerk in the US might start looking for a new job. The US is building a secret missile site in Israel. A public posting asked for bids, with details of the site. Now the enemy knows where to bomb.

The U.S. government published on a federal website details of a top-secret base in Israel to house the Arrow 3 missile defense system.

A 1,000-page detailed description of the project, to be built by the United States for Israel, was published on a federal business opportunities website in order to allow contractors to prepare bids on the $25 million project.

“If an enemy of Israel wanted to launch an attack against a facility, this would give him an easy how-to guide,” an unnamed Israeli official told McClatchy newspapers. “This type of information is closely guarded and its release can jeopardize the entire facility.”

The bidding documents were first cited in Jane’s Defense Weekly, which discussed them in a story that provides details about the new defense system.

When it becomes operational in 2015, the Arrow 3 is expected to be able to intercept ballistic missiles at a range of up to 1,500 miles outside the Earth’s atmosphere.

Pentagon spokesman Lt. Col. Wesley Miller told McClatchy that the U.S. routinely publishes construction plans on the website to allow contractors to accurately estimate costs.

The facility is so top secret in Israel that the military will not confirm its exact location, between Jerusalem and Ashdod in the South.

The head of the Arrow 3 project, Col. Aviram Hasson, on Monday told a conference at the Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv that the Arrow 3 program has been accelerated due to fears of the threat from Iran.

McClatchy reported that the U.S. has built some $500 million in Israeli military facilities, including an air base, intelligence offices and underground hangars.

    :some clerk?" More obfuscation by supposed Jewish media! At the IRS it was a "rogue agent!" At DoJ it was a "rogue agent!" And now, a "rogue clerk" who.
    mistakenly" posted thousands of documents? REALLY? Perhaps the time has come for both the Jewish public in the US and in Israel to take a reality check as to the goals and subterfuge of their own media: JTA AND Jewish Press, exemplified by Yanover exhalation of Ottoman oppression, aggression and over Jew hatred.

  2. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    As the AJC gave Kerry a forum for his push for Israel to surrender, his boss was ordering US public web sites to post Israeli State secrets as to hidden bases and new weapons development Israel has taken on to defend herself. Have to wonder how long before the AJC establishment wakes up to what the Obama administration is really all about – and their true goals. If the AJC board is not sure, perhaps a history lesson as to 1930s Germany would help you. Give me a mailing address and I would be happy to send you some salient facts of the Obama push to repeat history.

    (OH WAIT: According to the establishment at HTA, Jewish Press and AJC, it was actually some low level Grade-5 "rogue clerk!" obama "knows nutting!" – Time for a change in Jewish management).

    I think it's time to turn to G-d with our whole heart and turn to real Jewish leaders, before we find that nothing happens when we push the button.
