Contrary to the never-ending stream of lies from the Zionist extremists, new national Security Agency documents released by master whistler-blower Edward Snowden have revealed that Israel is America’s number 1 spy enemy.
The new documents—released by Snowden and published on The Intercept news site(run by long time Snowden associate Glen Greenwald) and detailed in Newsweek magazine, reveal that Israel “was singled out in 2007 as a top espionage threat against the U.S. government, including its intelligence services.”
The document also identified Israel, along with North Korea, Cuba and India, as a “leading threat” to the infrastructure of U.S. financial and banking institutions.
The threats were listed in the NSA’s 2007 Strategic Mission List, according to the document obtained by Greenwald.
In this new document, Israel was identified by the NSA as a security threat in several areas, including “the threat of development of weapons of mass destruction”and “delivery methods (particularly ballistic and nuclear-capable cruise missiles).”
The NSA also flagged Israel’s “WMD and missile proliferation activities” and “cruise missiles” as threats.
In a section of the document headed “Foreign Intelligence, Counterintelligence; Denial & Deception Activities: Countering Foreign Intelligence Threats,” Israel was listed as a leading perpetrator of “espionage/intelligence collection operations and manipulation/influence operations…against U.S. government, military, science & technology and Intelligence Community” organs.
The term “manipulation/influence operations” refers to covert attempts by Israel to sway U.S. public opinion in its favor.
Israel has similar company in threats against U.S. infrastructure, according to the NSA document.
Under a section headed “Mastering Cyberspace and Preventing an Attack on U.S. Critical Information Systems,” Israel, India, North Korea and Cuba are identified as “FIS [financial/banking system] threats.”
Israel also appears on the list of countries believed by the NSA to be “enabling” electronic warfare “producers/proliferators.”
A previously released Snowden document said that “one of NSA’s biggest threats is actually from friendly intelligence services, like Israel.”
In a series of articles last May, Newsweek reported that “Israel has been caught carrying out aggressive espionage operations against American targets for decades,” an allegation vociferously denied by Israeli officials, who insisted that Jerusalem stopped spying on the U.S. after the late 1980s arrest and conviction of its secret agent Jonathan Pollard, a U.S. Naval Intelligence analyst.
Citing NSA documents, Greenwald’s piece in The Intercept says, “The relationship has, on at least one occasion, entailed the covert payment of a large amount of cash to Israeli operatives.”
“Over the last decade,” Greenwald added, “the NSA has significantly increased the surveillance assistance it provides to its Israeli counterpart, the Israeli SIGINT National Unit (ISNU; also known as Unit 8200), including data used to monitor and target Palestinians. In many cases, the NSA and ISNU work cooperatively with the British and Canadian spy agencies, the GCHQ and CSEC.”
