Mossad chief Barnea flies to Washington to try to halt Iran nuclear deal

Mossad Director David Barnea left on Monday for Washington DC to hold a series of meetings with top officials from the White House, CIA Director William Burns, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Pentagon and the State Department to try to halt the reportedly impending Iran nuclear deal.

Barnea has marked himself as the Israeli security establishment’s most aggressive critic of the deal, a line that Prime Minister Yair Lapid has mostly adopted, though some members of the security establishment believe “no deal” would be worse than a return to the 2015 JCPOA.

Israel is at least consistent

The spy chief’s visit is part of a string of senior Israeli officials who have been campaigning to block the deal.
