Uncle Shem Wants You? Israel Accused of Using U.S. Passport/Fake CIA ID's To Recruit Operatives

Foreign Policy magazine has published an article that deals with an intelligence crisis that the Bush and Obama Administration appear to have buried away from public view. Internal memos reportedly detail how Israeli Mossad agents posed as CIA agents in the recruitment and running of operatives. Previously, Israel was criticized by various countries for using their passports and stolen identities of their citizens to kill a target in Dubai. The article suggests that Israel used U.S. money, passports, and identities for the false flag operation. What is fascinating is that the U.S. was accused (not surprisingly) of conducting the operation of cover support for Jundallah — a Pakistan-based Sunni extremist organization in 2007 and 2008.

While President Bush was reportedly irate over the operation, no public mention was made of the serious breach of international law and intelligence protocols.

The U.S. had barred its agents from any contacts with the extreme Jundallah (Soldiers of God). One American official is quoted as saying that the operation was brazen and that Israeli agents “apparently didn’t give a damn what we thought.”

An official is also quoted as saying that the operation clearly “was putting Americans at risk.”
