America, rightfully so, has focused its war on terror upon al Qaeda, Afghanistan and Iraq. But, it’s time to expend immense intelligence efforts upon Iran, beyond its nuclear ambitions. Iran is the foremost sponsor of global terror and stands as the most formidable sponsor of terrorism by proxy in the world today. Even if Iran dismantles its nuclear weapon ambitions, it will certainly continue to perfect a higher-grade nuclear fuel. The radioactive fuel they perfect may not be quite pure enough to spawn a nuclear detonation, but it would be devastating if used in a radioactive “dirty” bomb and exploded with conventional explosives. OSINT News believes Iran's Terrorist Proxies are the real threat in her nuclear ambitions.

The frightening equation is: high-grade plutonium + Iran’s historical use of Hezbollah as a terrorist proxy + Hezbollah’s documented global bombings and assassinations + Hezbollah’s intensely close relationship with al Qaeda and Sunni terrorist cells = increased chances of radioactive dirty bomb(s) detonated inside America.

We know that Hezbollah has rented apartments and planned bombing attacks in New York City. This terrorist proxy of Iran controls southern Lebanon and threatens Israel with high-powered weaponry supplied by Iran. Iran, Hezbollah, al Qaeda and other Sunni terrorist cells have networks that have trained Iraqi insurgents in the crafts of suicide bombing and the building of roadside bombs that have killed U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the attacks upon American institutions in Lebanon.

OSINT News believes that we should “know thy enemy“ and the book "The Secret War With Iran: The 30-Year Clandestine Struggle Against the World‘s Most Dangerous Terrorist Power" will enable us to do just that. “Knowing thy enemy” involves learning about how the Ayatollah and the mullahs came to power and what they intend to do with their new-found supremacy. It is a page-turner and delves into the relationship between Iran and Israel, before and after the Khomeini revolution. You will get a firm understanding of current events as well as the animosity Iran feels towards Israel for supporting the Shah. It opens with a description of the twilight of the Iranian monarchy and tells the story of Khomeini's coming to power. It shows the blindness of American Intelligence services and their failure to grasp what was going on in Iran. The theme of the failure of Intelligence, of U.S. and Israeli sources, and the element of denial in that failure is exposed.

The author, Mr. Bergman, writes about lawless South American towns, secret intelligence meetings, as well as dirty dealings among contractors. He gives a strategic analysis and several anecdotes along with a history lesson and full analysis of the Iranian political system- including the current administration, as well as the Iranian nuclear efforts and the country's role in arming and training Hezbollah.

This is a completely unbiased book and is not excessively supportive of Israeli or American intelligence. Bergman denigrates Israeli intelligence dozens of times throughout the book. You learn that Mossad isn’t the "all knowing", invincible intelligence agency that you once thought, for inner fighting, lies, and the grim price paid by the Israeli people for Mossad’s foibles are exposed. He details operational decisions which at the time seemed a choice of the lesser of two-evils but in the long run proved critically wrong. One of these was the Israeli decision, with American approval, to arm Iran against the growing power of Saddam Hussein. This decision helped save the Islamic Republic from collapse. Bergman also illuminates the whole Iran-contra affair and provides clear evidence of knowledge of the affair at the highest U.S. government levels.

The determination, comprehensiveness, and ruthlessness of Iran's war of terror against the West is described, and this is why OSINT News believes a dirty, radioactive bomb ala high-grade Iranian plutonium is likely to be detonated inside America…or Israel. Iran and Hezbollah, throughout this secret war, have outsmarted and dealt telling blows to Israel and the U.S. Successful terror bombings such as two in Beirut on the American Embassy in April 18, 1983; on the Marine contingent at the Beirut Airport October 23, 1983; on the Israel intelligence service facility at Tyre in Southern Lebanon in November 1982; and on the US. Army installation at Khobar in Saudi Arabia were devastating tactical and strategic successes.

Hezbollah drove the U.S. from Lebanon and put Israel’s Mossad into a process of denial which led to their un-preparedness and failures of the 2006 War. So, “know thy enemy” and appreciate Hezbollah's terror successes. Respect their operatives, like Imad Mougniyeh, who was behind most of the spectacular operations and who killed more Americans than any terror force before 9/11. Don’t accept false premises to appease our Western minds, like believing Shiite and Sunnite enmity will make Hezbollah ineffective. The Shiite operatives of Mougniyeh and the Sunni operatives of al Qaeda train and work together quite well. And, OSINT News  believes they will be plotting to detonate a radioactive "dirty" bomb within America's heartland, enriched with high-grade Iranian plutonium.

It’s a cutthroat world out there! Hezbollah rose to power in Lebanon while an Israeli traitor supplied Iran with the basics for its chemical WMD; Iran dealt with the Russians to acquire the technology for a nuclear weapon; that same technology found its way elsewhere via Pakistani nuclear scientist Abdul Kadeer Khan; Iran fools the IAEA and the world and continues to progress towards nuclear weapons; Iran and Syria have rearmed Hezbollah and taught Hamas in Gaza sophisticated war tactics in anticipation of their next round with Israel; the Iranians have supported terrorist forces in Iraq through the patronage of the Iranian revolutionary guards …the list is endless.

Despite Bergman's criticism of US and Israeli intelligence services, both have outpaced Iran and her terrorist proxies- Israel’s stealth attack on Syria’s nuclear facility (much to Iran’s chagrin); the July 2008 assassination of Imad Moughniyeh Askari; the 'mishap' at the VX gas facility at al-Safir due to improvement in the functioning of Western intelligence; etc.

Still, Hezbollah remains a sophisticated adversary and the failures of the 2006 war have led to a bolstering of Iranian-Syrian allegiances. Iran has become an even more aggressive exporter of its own revolution, determined to acquire nuclear weapons and, OSINT News believes, to supply Hezbollah proxies with high-grade plutonium to detonate radioactive “dirty“ bombs inside America.
