Over the weekend, several prominent U.S. newspapers featured stories on the Iranian nuclear weapons program, just before U.S. President Donald Trump's summit Monday with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The stories sprang from an Israeli decision to share some of the material ferreted from Tehran by the Mossad (Israel's secret service) last January. Israeli Intelligence officials briefed U.S. reporters on the significance of the find and what it means for the future, according to reports in the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and Washington Post.
At the briefing, the reporters were permitted to touch original documents with gloved hands and were given copies of some of the 100,000-documents in the data base.
The briefing appeared to convince them that Iran is continuing to pursue nuclear weapons capability despite its official denial.
Following last January's dramatic heist, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu presented a powerpoint video from the data documenting what he's been trying to expose for years: the Iranian regime's nuclear weapons aspirations.
At the time, CBN News Middle East Bureau Chief Chris Mitchell called Netanyahu's presentation "the powerpoint heard round the world."
