On Monday, Netanyahu said during an internationally-televised address that Israeli intelligence has 100,000 files proving that Iran continued to maintain a secret nuclear program.
However, "Bibi [Netanyahu] ’s pathetic theatrics will have no impact" on US President Donald Trump’s decision, Goodman, who was a CIA analyst for 24 years and is now director of the National Security Project at the Center for International Policy, said on Monday.
Trump has said that over the coming week, he will decide whether to remain in or pull the United States out of the 2015 nuclear agreement, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), under which Iran agreed to end its nuclear development program in exchange for sanctions relief.
"Trump has already made up his mind — such as it is — and we’ll know the answer next week," Goodman said.
Former CIA Director Michael Hayden reacted to Netanyahu’s Monday televised broadcast and claims on Iran’s nuclear program by describing them as "old news."
Trump has repeatedly criticized the nuclear agreement — negotiated and supported throughout by the Obama administration — during his 2016 election campaign and after he assumed office.
