Israel must be fuming. On March 11, unnamed United States officials released bombshell information to the Wall Street Journal stating that since 2019, Israel has targeted at least a dozen Iranian vessels bound for Syria. The decision to publish the material comes just two weeks after Israel blamed Iran for attacking an Israeli-owned vessel in the Gulf of Oman, and a day before Iran claimed Israel attacked another of its vessels in the eastern Mediterranean.
On today’s program, host Brent Nagtegaal connects the recent attacks with the timing of the WSJ story. Put together, they reveal that the U.S. is once again attempting to justify empowering Iran, at the expense of its ally Israel.
