Thursday, September 12, 2019

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has flatly denied a report that his country was spying on the US. A Politico article cites three former senior US officials who say Israel was likely behind surveillance devices found near the White House. But a statement from Mr Netanyahu's office said this was "a blatant lie".

"There is a longstanding commitment, and a directive from the Israeli government not to engage in any intelligence operations in the US."...

In 2006, former US Department of Defense employee Lawrence Franklin received a 13-year prison sentence for passing classified documents on US policy towards Iran to Israel. ...

One of the former officials who spoke anonymously to the site said the StingRays were likely designed to spy on President Trump. He said it is not clear if they succeeded.

Thanks, I really needed a humor uplift.

They frigging sold our Sidewinder tech to China. They tried to do it for the F-16 but we saw what going on and stopped the project. It's the only democracy left in the middle-east, but it does get annoying.
