This website contains 30 declassified documents from a secret policy debate over the Israeli nuclear weapons program during the first year of the Nixon administration. The debate centered on the question of whether it was possible to prevent Israel from obtaining nuclear weapons or whether the U.S. should tolerate a nuclear-armed Israel. The documents are the primary sources for an article by Avner Cohen and William Burr, which appeared in the May-June 2006 issue of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists. A link to the article appears on the site.
