Meir Dagan, the former head of Mossad, eviscerated Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress this past week.

In an interview with Channel 2 that aired on Friday evening, Dagan is seen watching the speech while using harsh, blunt language to describe some of the claims made by the premier before US lawmakers in Washington.

When Netanyahu said that Iran could sprint to a nuclear device in less than a year, Dagan said that the assessment was inaccurate. “It will take more time than that,” he said.

The former Mossad chief also ridiculed Netanyahu’s assertion that Iran posed a threat to the United States, even using the word “bullshit.”
