Washington, DC, Posted April 15, 2015 -- The U.S. government first learned
of Israel's secret nuclear program at Dimona from an American corporate
official talking to U.S. diplomats in Tel Aviv during mid-summer 1960,
according to a declassified document published today for the first time by
the National Security Archive, the Nuclear Proliferation International
History Project, and the Center for Nonproliferation Studies of the
Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey.  Other documents
published today detail the discovery of the secret project that some in the
U.S. government  believed from the very start aimed at a weapons
capability; the U.S. debates over Israel's lack of candor; and U.S.
government efforts to pressure the Israelis to answer key questions about
the nature of the Dimona project.
