In a September 2012 address to the United Nations General Assembly in New York, Netanyahu claimed that Iran was 90 down the road to developing an atomic weapon and would do so within the year. “By next spring, at most by next summer, at current enrichment rates, they will have finished the medium enrichment and move on to the final stage,” he stated.
However, the leaked internal documents paint a much different picture.
On October 22, 2012—less than a month after Netanyahu’s speech—Mossad sent a classified assessment to South Africa, stating that Iran was “not performing the activity necessary to produce weapons” and “doesn’t appear to be ready to enrich uranium to the higher levels needed for a nuclear bomb.”
