    Mossad chiefs secret visit to US

    As the debate over a possible military strike against Iran continues to grow, Mossad Chief Tamir Pardo met last Thursday in Washington with CIA Director David Petraeus. Petraeus outlined America's red line with regards to the Iranian nuclear menace and said that Israel viewed the Iran threat as "existential." Meanwhile, the US National Director of Intelligence, James Clapper, stressed that the US did not know if Iran would eventually decide to build nuclear weapons. But that Iran is nevertheless expanding its uranium enrichment capabilities, which can be used for either civil or weapons purposes.
