Norwegian intelligence is active in Iran. Wow. Great news for everybody, but why would this information get out into the media? Just like inside the United States, Lefties leak information to the MSM, then the voices of complaint start squawking.
Major General Torgeir Hagen says that the Intelligence Service is charting Iran's possible nuclear weapons program, registering threat against Norway's allies, and at the same time securing Norwegian interests in the country.
Researcher at the the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI), professor Daniel Heradstveit, says he is deeply shocked by the news that Norwegian intelligence is operating inside Iran.
- As a small state we rather ought to take on the role of bridge builder towards Iran. But here we stand as a small nation and do the work that could be done by the larger nations, Heradstveit says.
It is known that Norway has for years contributed intelligence to US and British military operations around the world.
