Dagan: Don't Discuss Iran Attack Too Openly

Speaking Monday afternoon, former Mossad head Meir Dagan said that while Israel should be ready for a military confrontation with Iran, it should not be the preferred method of dealing with Tehran. Dagan said that overemphasizing the military option might prompt Tehran to “do something crazy,” perhaps using nuclear weapons against Israel, creating a “complicated situation” in the Middle East.

Dagan was speaking at Netanya College.
