“The former head of the Mossad…”

That should be “A former head of the Mossad…” and one generally considered to be a rather mediocre one, at best. Indeed the fabled Meir Dagan was parachuted in (pun intended) to the Mossad by Ariel Sharon to shake things up and and restore its clandestine warfare activities (e.g., like offing Iranian nuclear weapons personnel) which had become flaccid and incompetent under Halevy’s reign.

Bottom line: Take Halevy with a grain of salt. He is not that respected within Israel’s defense and security community. Which I am sure is why the Times in its reciprocally infinite wisdom decided he’s a world class expert.
