Earlier today Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu revealed the confiscation of 100,000 Iranian nuclear documents, which were taken out of Tehran by intelligence operatives. The documents show Iran lied about having a secret nuclear program.
Netanyahu described the collection and extradition of the information as a "great intelligence achievement." It was a major, seemingly impossible intelligence success.
Israel stole the physical files right out of Iran and now exposing them. Boldest damn intell operation I’ve ever seen.— Jonathan Schanzer (@JSchanzer) April 30, 2018
Here's a fun question to ponder: How much time transpired between the Iranians discovering that 100k files from their nuclear program were missing and Bibi's speech today?— Jonathan Schanzer (@JSchanzer) April 30, 2018
WOW: Israeli spies smuggled out Iran's top secret nuke weapons files. Definitive proof Iran still secretly developing nuke weapons. Conclusion: Obama's Iran deal was nonsense theater to empower Iran's regional pursuit of dominance.— Adam Kredo (@Kredo0) April 30, 2018
So the only story I'm interested in now is how the Israelis got those files. A staggering intelligence operation.— Michael Weiss (@michaeldweiss) April 30, 2018
The mole hunt inside the Iranian regime and nuclear program is also going to be staggering https://t.co/C0ccNazZu9— Noah Pollak (@NoahPollak) April 30, 2018
Iranian nuke vault has got to be on the most secure places in the country. Israel must have had dozens of assets, all with top-level clearance. And if this all happened two weeks ago, the Iranians have known they were snookered since then. See developments in Syria in this light.— Michael Weiss (@michaeldweiss) April 30, 2018

Netanyahu shows original Iranian photos and videos of secret nuclear weapons program, including underground facility for nuclear core.— Michael Weiss (@michaeldweiss) April 30, 2018
Spies steal documents all the time. But this was a huge cache. And usually, spy agencies keep quiet after the intelligence is lifted. Not so with the Israelis. They are broadcasting this – making it as much a psychological operation as a revelation about Iran’s nuclear mendacity.— Jonathan Schanzer (@JSchanzer) April 30, 2018
So, when does the movie about the operation come out?
