2. Eisenhower and the LavonAffair.
In 1954, the Israeligovernment launched its"Operation Susannah"false flagterrorist attack on U.S. facilities inEgypt. Israel's operatives werequickly arrested when bombsexploded prematurely. Theoperation's utter failure resulted ina political crisis known as theLavon Affair. President Dwight D.Eisenhower, periodically swarmedby American Zionist Councillobbyists urging him to sendmoney and arms to Israel, must have learned some very hard lessons about U.S.-Israelrelations from the incident. Yet the Eisenhower presidential archive—which is not subjectto FOIA—has never released anything revelatory about the administration's reaction to theattempted false flag attack. A narrow request for such files yielded only a singlenon-specific declassified opinion that the commander-in-chief believed the Israelis were"fanatics." (National Security CouncilPDF) Yet the false flag operation's objective,attacking to keep U.S. troops stationed in the Suez Canal Zone to respond to "Egyptianmilitants," seemed entirely rational to Israel, and possibly to some of its U.S. supporterswho struggled for years afterwards to minimize the importance of theaffair. TodayEisenhower library archivists claim that huge quantities of Eisenhower's papers are still"unprocessed,"butmay hold some private reflections or lessons learned.
3. Israeli theft of nuclear material fromNUMEC.
In 2013, the CIA continues toresist release of thousands of files aboutthe NUMEC diversion byreferring to CIADeputy Director for Operations John H.Stein's secret decision in 1979 (2013 FOIAdenialPDF). Stein claimed that release of even a few of CIA's closely-held files—especially if they werecompared with Science Advisor of the Interior Commission HenryMeyer'sblunt allegations(PDF) to Congressman Morris Udall in 1979 that NUMEC wasan Israeli smuggling front—was impossible "because of the need to have a coordinatedExecutive Branch position and our desire to protect a sensitive and valuable liaisonequity." In plain English, that appears to mean Americansstillcannot have officialCIAconfirmation of the uranium theft because the U.S. president would have to drop theongoing nonsense of "strategic ambiguity" and forego intelligence Israel is funneling to America.
