Far more important than Putin's statement that Russia has no evidence that Iran is trying to build nukes, is the the systematic censorship of detailed information which shows that is probable. I know what has not been published. The details which show that information which Israelis have been lead to think was 'secret' is in fact in the open literature. I also am aware of the systematic censorship of such information by Haaretz. How a collective refutation was censored, and how each individual refutation was censored in an effort to find the 'offending' detail. The systemic and broad basis of censorship proved that NO single detail or proof that what was claimed to be a damning secret was in fact nothing but common knowledge was the cause of Haaretz censorship. It leaves me to question if freedom of speech and inquiry in Israel is dead. If the fact that something is public knowledge - many things are public knowledge - is subject to censorship, what isn't?
