Former IDF Intelligence Chief: U.S. Coming Around on Iran Strike


idf-chief-amos-yadlin“The American stance on an Israeli strike against Iran has changed dramatically recently,” Maj.-Gen. (ret.) Amos Yadlin, who served as head of IDF Intelligence from 2006 to 2010, told Army Radio on Wednesday. “In 2012 the [Americans’] red light was as red as it can get, the brightest red. But the music I’m hearing lately from Washington says, ‘If this is truly an overriding Israeli security interest, and you think you want to strike,’ then the light hasn’t changed to green, I think, but it’s definitely yellow.”

Yadlin is thought to be close to parts of the U.S. defense establishment. He served as Israel’s military attache in Washington from 2004 to 2006, and was a fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy in 2011.
