- US & Israel Restart Secret ‘Plan B’ Talks On Iran As Alternative To Nuke Deal

During their respective addresses to the UN General Assembly meeting this week, Biden and Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi both expressed a desire to continue talks focused on the restoration of the JCPOA nuclear agreement in Vienna. This even as Raisi blasted the “hegemonic United States” and its nation-building efforts abroad in places like Iraq and Afghanistan as having “failed miserably”.
On Wednesday Axios has revealed that secret talks between top Israeli officials and the White House have resumed, which are focused on putting in place “plan B” actions should nuclear talks fail to resume. The talks are said to be between Biden’s national security adviser Jake Sullivan and his Israeli counterpart Eyal Hulata.
“This is the first time a top-secret U.S.-Israel strategic working group on Iran has convened since the new Israeli government took office in June,” Axios notes.
“Iran doesn’t frighten me and I don’t think it should frighten the American people. They don’t have a bomb. They haven’t made a decision to build one. They don’t have the means to deliver one. And the Israelis have 300 atomic bombs! I mean who presents the existential threat to whom?” – Pat Buchanan (7:58 onwards)
