DEBKAfile is a site that some love to hate, for its unabashedly pro-Israeli orientation. However, there is a report that is worthy of attention without reflexive knee-jerk: "Defecting Iranian cameraman brings CIA priceless film of secret nuclear sites". According to the report, dated October 5:
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s personal cameraman, Hassan Golkhanban, who defected from his UN entourage in New York on Oct. 1, brought with him an intelligence treasure trove of up-to-date photographs and videos of top Iranian leaders visiting their most sensitive and secret nuclear and missile sites.

The Iranian cameraman has given US intelligence the most complete and updated footage it has ever obtained of the interiors of Iran’s top secret military facilities and various nuclear installations, including some never revealed to nuclear watchdog inspectors. Among them are exclusive interior shots of the Natanz nuclear complex, the Fordo underground enrichment plant, the Parchin military complex and the small Amir-Abad research reactor in Tehran.
Knowledge is power. Will this latest insight promote a US/Israeli strike, or not? Or does it just confirm what the CIA and Mossad already know?
