Grant F. Smith


Grant F. Smith, director of the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy in Washington, D.C., discusses his article “Americans Pay Dearly to Maintain Israel’s Nuclear Secrets;” the Army Corps of Engineers’ $170 million cleanup project at NUMEC, a Pennsylvania nuclear facility that diverted uranium to Israel in the 1960s; why the CIA still won’t release documents on NUMEC (and the agency knows plenty about it), even to aid the cleanup effort; the juvenile stupidity of “strategic ambiguity,” where government officials and the US media feign ignorance or willfully ignore anything about Israel’s nuclear program; and how NUMEC fits the profile of a long list of Israeli front companies that smuggled US military assets and nuclear materials.

      1. At this point in history, what choices do we have? I would say that, not only from his words but from his actions He desveres our trust, at least for now, They main test will come when he choses his advisers. If you look at the previous presidents and the advisers they picked, you could pretty much predict what their policies would be. ( The one that has the ear of the king holds the keys to the kingdom) If he does not get elected, the only other option, to end this madness would be a class action lawsuit against the gov.

  1. You can always count on our friend Smith here to give you the straight goods about Israel, our "51st state," and its evil hold over the U.S. Government.

  2. This the place?,-79.580863&a

    It already looks pretty much cleaned up, like that area covered under astroturf from the X-Files, directly behind the lead-lined hospital and the radioactive sausage parlor.

    There used to be a steel mill there? The "SLDA DECLARATION FOR THE RECORD OF DECISION" only lists coal mines underneath, of which there seem to be a lot though.

    Oh well, just one of the many horrors coming out of the neverending war. Many still to go. Better than Russia though, so "be grateful"!

  3. Highest achievers — Forever rich

    Never has Israel seen such large protests as those last summer and the protesters are all in agreement — a dozen super rich family dynasties have a monopoly on wealth and power, with democracy being nothing more then a pretense of good, with government gone completely corrupt and criminal.

    So, as their rich nobility have no problem ruling government, and to the extent that the lower half of society are nothing more then economical slaves, why for 63 years have they refused to nationalize a gigantic labor force of indigenous natives in Palestine? All that cheep labor, surely they could give China and Mexico stiff competition and quadruple their profits.

    First things first, for just as soon as they take possession of all the land of Palestine, then comes a One State Solution to make an impoverished labor force of all those in Palestine.

  4. Thank you for any other wonderful post. The place else may anybody get that kind of information in such a perfect manner of writing? I’ve a presentation next week, and I’m on the search for such information.
