But a rare bit of good news for the western -- nuclear program -- suffered a series of setbacks recently including the assassination of one of its top nuclear scientists.
And a sophisticated cyber attack has crippled two major nuclear plant from President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Quick quick to blame Israel is usually does when he goes wrong with a -- but once you -- actually be right.
Do -- two attacks bear the fingerprints of most side that's Israel's secret intelligence agency let's ask Victor atrocity.
He's a former Mossad agent and founder and CEO of that book.
Patch dot com -- great to see again thanks for being here appreciate it well.
Thank you for having so.
Let's talk about the assassination first of all this is Monday I believe in Iran met gene -- Sharia -- I think is the name of the guy I'm sure pronouncing it terribly but was this -- -- -- hit.
It looks like and it has all the fingerprints of -- side in fact that there were about five attempts in the last four years and I think.
This last one was successful.
There was another one where he got wounded I mean they use the same -- You know with a motorcycles the same way they did in 95 in.
In -- killing the head of the Islamic Jihad in in one of the islands.
Are you say well -- -- just -- -- -- -- I wouldn't say with a motorcycle at the motorcycle drove alongside the car and shot into is that what happened.
No actually they have motorcycle drove next to the car and attached a magnetic bomb to the door.
And then just took off.
And a very similarly done in in mall -- in 95.
And quite a few other times when the motorcycles were used it's an easy way to get away.
An agent on the ground that has to do it.
Most side usually doesn't use locals that it uses really agents -- is really.
Combatants to go into that so it's a very dangerous kind of opera how important what is target how important to -- -- nuclear program was this guy.
Well I think it's more important for the the Israel to have actually.
Carried it out in order to threaten the others and he's very similar to the steps were -- if -- -- member.
With the Iraqi nuclear facility where Israel was actually standing alone at the time in the whole world was.
Not even paying attention -- and they had to take it out.
And at that time they carried out -- whole series of events blowing up parts of the wrecked reactor.
Is still in France assassinating people from the U Iraqi scientist community.
In order to stop it in order not to have to -- eventually I mean if they could -- the whole idea is to try and prevent them from completion.
And that way let diplomacy work well or give it more time while he's.
Give it a little bush yeah -- that we're little short on time I just got asked whether or not this could have happened if it wasn't decided yet.
Do you think they inform the United States for do you think the United States nodded okay to it.
No I'm outside in this kind of an operation because of the danger of leaks and all kinds of things as you can see in the WikiLeaks in it set -- -- would have not shared that information and actually when you look at it it's almost the perfect storm he had the WikiLeaks you have the new head of -- -- that was just appointed.
And -- -- Marines were just about to open -- or the kick start their new reactor.
So I think this is kind of like putting it right in the right place at the right time and and we only have twenty seconds left but this cyber attack it was called stocks net.
Was -- also an Israeli operation.
This I'm not sure but I'm sure that Israel may have had a hand in it or participated this is something that you don't have people on the ground so really you can collaborate.
Israel hasn't very advanced technological community it's and I'm sure they can they can assist in that in any any way possible.
Well pushing back the nuclear power and ran that is good news Victor Ostrosky.
Thank you very much -- great to see again.
