      Dagan: Jordan Valley Is not a Vital Security Asset


      Maariv reports that former Mossad Chief Meir Dagan said over the weekend that any political statements by which the Jordan Valley is a vital security asset are just manipulations. "There is no Iraqi army, no eastern battle front, and there is peace with Jordan. I can accept an Israeli demand to retain the Jordan Valley, but not due to security considerations," said Dagan.
