The Mossad Caucus Exposed

Once again, a scandal involving spying and the state of Israel is rocking Capitol
Hill, with one big difference. This time, instead of the usual scenario where
Israel is spying on us, the tables are turned and it’s those usually hapless
Americans who have been secretly looking over the shoulder of their “ally.”
The Wall Street Journal reports
that the National Security Agency (NSA) not only eavesdropped on the private
communications of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, but that

“The National Security Agency’s targeting of Israeli leaders and officials
also swept up the contents of some of their private conversations with U.S.
lawmakers and American-Jewish groups. That raised fears — an ‘Oh-s — moment’
one senior US official said — that the executive branch would be accused of
spying on Congress.”

At the time, Netanyahu and his government were engaged in an all-out campaign
to torpedo the nuclear agreement with Iran, and that effort wasn’t limited to
using their American fifth column to put pressure on Congress and the Obama
administration. Israeli intelligence planted
malware in the hotel computers
where US negotiators were staying during
the negotiations in Switzerland: they intercepted highly sensitive inside information
on the talks, and leaked it. Did they leak to members of Congress opposed to
the Iran deal? It no doubt occurred to the US intelligence community to ask
this question, and answering it was a matter of national security. As the Journal
reports:

“Stepped-up NSA eavesdropping revealed to the White House how Mr. Netanyahu
and his advisers had leaked details of the U.S.-Iran negotiations — learned
through Israeli spying operations
— to undermine the talks; coordinated
talking points with Jewish-American groups against the deal; and asked undecided
lawmakers what it would take to win their votes, according to current and former
officials familiar with the intercepts.”
