Iran has emerged as the victor in secret war games that simulated an Israeli attack on one of its nuclear facilities.
According to the scenario, the Obama Administration decided to pursue a diplomatic approach to Tehran, leaving America’s closest military ally in the region in the lurch.
The exercise, staged by Tel Aviv University’s Institute for National Security Studies last month, showed that even an Israeli commando raid on Iran’s heavy water plant at Arak would not draw the US into a military conflict with Iran.
“Our leverage over the Americans, when we could prise them away from the Iranians and Europeans and others, was limited,” said Giora Eiland, a former Israeli national security adviser who played the role of the Prime Minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, in the simulated conflict.
