And the perpetrators and thier accomplices were summarily punished in a way that befits traitors. But now, it's called "journalism". Angelina Jolie just absolutely gushed about what difficult job journalists have (The linked article doesn't do the gushing justice). Yeah, whatever. All they do these days is slink around in dark alleys, conspiring with people who want to kill us, and pass along to them secrets about how we are trying to fight them. Like this (via Hot Air):
"Industrial sabotage is a way to stop the program, without military action, without fingerprints on the operation, and really, it is ideal, if it works," says Mark Fitzpatrick, the former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Non-Proliferation and now Senior Fellow in Non-Proliferation at the International Institute for Strategic Studies.
Sources in several countries involved told CBS News that the intelligence operatives involved include former Russian nuclear scientists and Iranians living abroad. Operatives have sold Iran components with flaws that are difficult to detect, making them unstable or unusable.
"One way to sabotage a program is to make minor modifications in some of the components Iran obtains on the black market, and because it's a black market … you don't know exactly who you are dealing with," Fitzpatrick says.
There is other evidence, CBS News was told, that some of the technical difficulties Iran is having in consistently running its centrifuges are the results of a concerted effort at industrial sabotage.Isn't there some law that talks about "giving aid to the enemy"?And if I'm not mistaken, when a president takes an oath of office, he swears to fight "enemies, both foreign and domestic". I think that ought to start with the traitors at CNN, ABC, They New York Slimes, and SeeBS. Throw a few of those clowns in jail, and see how much longer they coddle the enemy.
Sources familiar with the U.S. effort against Iran tell CBS News that U.S. intelligence agencies have run several programs in recent years, employing different techniques, including modifying components in hard-to-detect ways and making subtle changes to technical documents and drawings, rendering them useless.
