Air strikes are out of question. They have been so crowed about, that their "element of surprise" is nill. Moreover, after Osirak in 1981, that element of surprise was reduced to irrelevance. There are no air-strikes possible onto Iran, which from day 1 of its nuclear weapons program hid and scattered everything accordingly. A man who is out of tyhe political scene, working in highest intensity and keeping mum, cannot be expected to make a nuanced, highly elaborated, diplomatic triple bluff. You can expect that from president Peres, who is a skilled strategist, playing that verbal piano every day for the last 60 years. Dagan, unlike Peres, probably had a hard time not to fall into the temptation to say what legitimately is his Mossad's admirable achievement. And with that, the opus was severely damaged.
