    The article was written as if the journalist Marie Colvin was part of the hit team.I Dont think Ms Colvin is either part of Mossad.Nor has access to sources within Mossad which tell her intricate details about very sensitive operations.Why would any intelligence organisation need to? Details such as anxious radio messages between the head of the team from a safe house to the motorcyclists expressing concern over a lot of activity at the Iranian security building nearby which could have resulted in the mission being called off make exciting reading , but you have to be rather gullible to really believe that Mossad is telling the Sunday Times 'all about it' days afterwards. I think a lot of these sort of artices particularly those written days after the event are pure fiction.I remember a few years ago the Sunday Times had a major feature setting out in detail that the Israelis were about to launch an attack on the Iranian nuclear establishments using 'suicide mission' dogs which would be 'detonated' to explode and destroy the facilities. Who on earth dreamt up that story? There is a lot of space to fill in a newspaper....
