Processing Distortion with Peter B. Collins: Debunking the Myth of Iron Dome

Peter B. Collins Presents Professor Ted Postol

As US media and political leaders repeat unproven claims by Israel that its Iron Dome system has intercepted 80% or 90% of targeted Hamas rockets, no major print or broadcast outlet has challenged these incredible assertions. And aside from Democracy Now, no major outlet has contacted MIT’s Prof. Theodore Postol, an acknowledged and respected worldwide expert on missile defense technology, since the conflict escalated at the end of June. For the first time, Postol drops his academic reticence and offers candid comments on Israel’s tactics and the complicity of US leaders who embrace the extreme policies of the Netanyahu government. Postol details the probability of Iron Dome effectiveness as low as 5%, and expresses his outrage that American taxpayers are funding this high-tech illusion.

*Theodore A. Postol is a professor of Science, Technology, and International Security at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

  1. Hey there,

    It was Bob Dylan who said “When You got nothing, You got nothing to loose”. Joplin sang “Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to loose”, but Kris Kristofferson wrote the song.

    So, Israel lies about everything and indiscriminately maims and murders civilians but the good Professor – professes his undying support for Israel anyway. And the only reason he is up in arms about Israel’s tall tale of the 90% accuracy is that it may give the Israeli citizens a false sense of security.
    You are sick in your head Sir.
    Please listen to Red Ice Radio’s recent interview with John Lash and get yourself some colloidal silver. Perhaps it will help.
