Treachery! US Spills Israeli Missile Defense Secrets
US government website reveals numerous highly sensitive details of launch site to be built for Arrow 3 system, crucial to Israel’s protection against nuclear threats
The US government has publicized classified information detailing the location, design and specifications of a launch site to be built from this summer for Israel’s new Arrow 3 anti-ballistic missile system. The details, apparently spilled in error, appear to include highly sensitive information relevant to the struggle against Iran’s nuclear ambitions.
The material specifies, for instance, that the launch site must be completed by the end of next year, by which time, it says, Israel expects to have the Arrow 3 — a missile defense system crucial to Israel’s plans for countering an Iranian nuclear threat — operational.
News of the leak came as the Israeli official who oversees the Arrow 3 project revealed on Monday that Israel is speeding up the missile system’s development because of “the nuclear threat.”
The details were revealed, apparently inadvertently, in a tender issued by the US Federal Business Opportunities website inviting bids from American defense contractors to build the $25 million installation. The tender contains over 1,500 pages of information, and includes classified information specifying that the launch site will be built at what it says is the Israeli Air Force base at Tal Shahar. It features diagrams showing four concrete-hardened launchers, each designed to hold six rockets.
“If an enemy of Israel wanted to launch an attack against a facility, this would give him an easy how-to guide. This type of information is closely guarded and its release can jeopardize the entire facility,” said an Israeli military official who commented on the publication of the proposal but declined to be named because he wasn’t authorized to discuss the facility. He declined to say whether plans for the facility have been altered as a result of the disclosure.
“This is more than worrying, it is shocking,” he said.

When Corrupt Trees Bring Evil Fruit
Commentary from Bill Wilson, The Daily Jot, June 4th, 2013
The IRS was used as a political hit army against opponents of the occupant of the Oval Office. The more information forthcoming is circling around the concept that an unconstitutional gestapo-like organization was used with the full power of the government against critics and opponents of the White House. Moreover, one of the victims of tyrannical dictatorial tactics of this Administration is saying that the IRS publicly disclosed confidential information about its donors. The pattern of using a government sponsored agency to gain confidential information with the full trust of the United States and then making it public is a hallmark of this White House. Just ask Israel.
McClatchy News reports
that the Department of Defense posted plans on its public website of the Arrow 3 defense system designed to intercept ballistic missiles outside the Earth’s atmosphere. The plans were “so top secret that Israel’s military won’t officially confirm its location between Jerusalem and Ashod.” An Israeli military official told McClatchy, “If an enemy of Israel wanted to launch an attack against a facility, this would give him an easy how-to guide. This type of information is closely guarded and its release can jeopardize the entire facility.” Pentagon spokesman Lt Col Wesley Miller said he couldn’t comment on the specifics of the Arrow 3 base, but said the US routinely publishes its construction plans online.
Common sense dictates that top secret plans should not be made public when it comes to the defense of the nation and the nation’s allies. The Arrow 3 is a system that could protect the United States as well as Israel. The Defense Department has bid processes in place where the strategic details of base locations, etc., do not have to be made public. But this Administration chose to allow the world, which includes Israel’s enemies, to see the details of its strategic defense system. It is a well known fact in deed and in policy that this White House favors Islamic nations over Israel. The American people need to understand that this Administration is undermining longstanding trusts with both its citizens and its allies.
Likewise, this Administration harshly discriminates against those with whom it disagrees as evidenced by using an “above the law” unconstitutional agency such as the IRS to intimidate them and releasing their confidential information. Many may not like the blunt assessment, but actions speak louder than words. As Jesus said in Matthew 7:18-20 “A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that brings not forth good fruit is hewn down and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.” In America, We the People have the authority to cast out corrupt trees bearing evil fruit. This government is not your savior, but rather akin to the corrupt tree.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
