U.S. Gives Money To Israel, Sets Aside Money To Thwart Israeli Spies


The fiscal year 2013 “black budget” obtained from National Security Agency whistle-blower Edward Snowden by The Washington Post reveals that U.S. officials view Israel as one of the Nation’s top spying threats.

In the budget, Israel is categorized along with Iran, Cuba and other U.S. foes as “key targets” for counterintelligence efforts.

“To further safeguard our classified networks, we continue to strengthen insider threat detection capabilities across the Community,” reads the Congressional budget justification for intelligence programs. “In addition, we are investing in target surveillance and offensive CI [counterintelligence] against key targets, such as China, Russia, Iran, Israel, Pakistan and Cuba.”

The document suggests that the Israelis, who receive about $3 billion in annual U.S. aid, do not have faith in U.S. promises that the two nations’ interests are in line.

    Why in the heck would Israel trust Obama? They knew he was bad news when he was just a State Senator.. If I was Israel – I’d spy on Obama – just as he spies on USA citizens.
    I find any accusation toward Israel about Israel spying on the USA as just lame – look at how our own government treats it’s own citizens regarding the 4th amendment. And we don’t think the NSA HAS BEEN spying on Israel?

    I accept your money, but I do not trust you. That is so true. Thieves never really trust one another, because their claim of friendship is conditional, based on untruths and very false! Can either the leaders of Israel or America be trusted? Seriously, would you really believe anything these talking heads say?

      No !

    “The document suggests that the Israelis, who receive about $3 billion in annual U.S. aid, do not have faith in U.S. promises that the two nations’ interests are in line.”

    Does ANYONE? We are spying on everyone, friend and foe alike, Mr. Rolley, and have been doing so for at least 50 years.

    What is the purpose of this article, other than to paint Israel in a bad light once again?

      Vigilant, that may be Mr. Rolley purpose. I know what Bob Livingston claim to Christianity is but there are quite a few writers who claim to be Christians but believe in Replacement Theology( I call them Jewish wannabes) which have no problem joining with the Muslims in hating Israel and having that nation done away with.

        I believe you are correct. The most bigoted of all is Paul Craig Roberts. Others include the NWO conspiracy theorists who find it a convenient home to ply their anti-Jewish trade.

    Shocker… Israelies spy on us… our “friend”… Guess what, we spy, everyone spies and here is a little history lesson…The only country that has attacked the military of the United States in that region has been Israel. Only dopey “end of days” types feel like Israel needs our protection.
    Israel only cares about Israel and we only care about money for the top 1%. That is our world today.

    Israel is the one that refuses to sign an allied agreement with the United States and has maintained that stance through the last 6 presidents !!!!
