Israel not involved

A lot of discussion is going on about a senior DOD scientist (Stewart David Nozette) who was arrested for trying to spy for Israel.

Just so everyone knows, the Israeli government was not involved in this.

It was a sting operation by the FBI. They pretended to be Israeli officials.

When the FBI was asked why they pretended to be Israeli Intelligence spies they explained that the scientist used to work for a few years as a part-time consultant to an Israeli government owned company, and he expressed an affinity to Israel to a colleague.

That's a good one. How in the world can FBIers act like Israelis????
what a spoof that must have been.
Did they "hire" an Israeli to pretend to be an Israeli?

It's an interesting question if the FBI has Israelis working there.

After 9/11 the FBI specifically did not want to hire Jews from Arab countries for translating and investigating Arab communications because of the Jewish/Israel connection and because it would upset the Arabs.

No Israelis where involved. But don't look for the anti-Israel crowd to be bothered by the facts.

Rudeness, poor driving, short sightedness etc. it's not such a challenge, surely?

Pretty much every terrorism arrest in the U.S. in the last 8 years was a sting operation by government agents pretending to be fanatic Muslims.

But that doesn't bother you, does it? It's only wrong when they do it to US?

Shlomo: Sting operations are a valid form of law enforcement. The arrested guy was an idiot.
