Walter Pincus reported in the Washington Post that the U.S. taxpayer is footing the bill for $500-million worth of projects on behalf of the IDF, as specified in the Wye Agreement. Already, that’s paid for facilities for Israel’s nuclear weapons arsenal. The latest project will be a $100-million underground military command and control bunker at Israel’s top-secret ICBM complex at Sdot Micha.
I’ve published my latest story at Antiwar.com on this subject and what it means for Middle East security (or insecurity). Please read and share through social networking and other media.
UPDATE: A reader has examined some of the architectural drawings for the facility and they indicate that the base where this project is being built may be Nevatim, an Air Force facility in the Negev near Beersheba, and not Sdot Micha as my source reported. I am trying to clarify this.
