Report: Netanyahu linked to US nuclear tech case

July 7, 2012 12:56 A.M. (Updated: July 14, 2012 11:08 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli media reported Friday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was once employed by a front company used to smuggle nuclear technology out of the US.

Maariv, a Hebrew-language Israeli daily, said recently released FBI files showed Netanyahu was employed at the Heli Trading Company during the time of the smuggling operation.

The documents, first revealed by the website Antiwar.com, were from an investigation that began in 1985 into a network of front companies connected to Israel's defense ministry.

They say an American named Richard Kelly Smyth, who was later convicted of involvement in one of the front companies, met with Netanyahu during the events, the website reported.
