Maxwell Smart Returns: USA has no operatives deep inside Iran

Is the US as clueless as Maxwell Smart?

How Washington Encourages Israel to Bomb Iran -Reuel Marc Gerecht 

It's an excellent bet that the Israelis now know that the CIA probably has no sources inside the upper reaches of the Iranian scientific establishment, Khamenei's inner circle, or the Revolutionary Guards' nuclear brigade.

The Israelis surely know that when the administration says it has "no evidence" that Khamenei has decided to build a nuclear weapon, this really means that Washington has no solid information. That is, Washington is guessing.

Not a good situation, certainly. Not absolutely sure what it is intended for though.
