Ehud Barak won’t be investigated for bombshell recordings

Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein says former prime minister Ehud Barak won’t be investigated for revealing classified information to his biographers.

In recordings of the interviews, aired by Channel 2 in August, Barak detailed ostensibly aborted plans to strike at Iran in 2010, 2011 and 2012. Barak, in the tapes, said he, Netanyahu and Liberman wanted to strike at Iran’s nuclear facilities, but were thwarted by domestic opposition.
