BETRAYED: U.S. Publishes Details Of Missile Base Israel Wanted Kept Secret


obama-netanyahu2Israel’s military fumed Monday over the discovery that the U.S. government had revealed details of a top-secret Israeli military installation in published bid requests.

The Obama administration had promised to build Israel a state-of-the-art facility to house a new ballistic-missile defense system, the Arrow 3. As with all Defense Department projects, detailed specifications were made public so that contractors could bid on the $25 million project. The specifications included more than 1,000 pages of details on the facility, ranging from the heating and cooling systems to the thickness of the walls.

“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.

Pentagon spokesman Lt. Col. Wesley Miller said he couldn’t comment on the specifics of the Arrow 3 base, but he said the United States routinely published the details of its construction plans on a federal business opportunities website so that contractors could estimate the costs of jobs. He said such postings often might be revised after contracts were approved.

  1. this is why you don’t give secrets anymore to USA because of our muslim president. I can’t beleive the Israeli government is that stupid to realize the USA cannot be trusted anymore because there are more and more anti Israel people in our government than ever before. There is a article about our president the trojan horse who is sliping more and more anti American and anti Isreal people into the government and we are so asleep no one sees it, but one day we will all wake up to adifferent country and be surprised on how it happened.

  2. I find the answer as mindboggling as the question. The US PUBLISHES its specs? And then sometimes changes them? Do you know how much it costs to change specs after they are bid on? The whole bid goes out the window and the contractor can charge what he wants! And they see nothing wrong with this!
