President-elect Donald Trump has caused alarm throughout the intelligence community after he criticized the CIA for its recent conclusion that Russia hacked into American institutions and spied on the United States in order to help Trump win the election. Not only has he been critical of American intelligence agencies to defend a foreign government, but his dismissal of intelligence briefings and his refusal to attend them, have disturbed not only the agencies that are paramount to the security of the country, but even President Obama, who appeared puzzled and disgusted after addressing the issue.
So it’s then quite crazy that Trump doesn’t want to receive intelligence briefings about threats to the homeland, but he apparently has the time to meet with a foreign spy agency with a history of hostility toward the United States:
Trump’s staff met with Israel’s Mossad spy agency, a notorious organization that has a history of spying on the United States and threatening American interests abroad:
“The security delegation was organized by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, according to Ynet, and was led by National Security Council head Yaakov Nagel. Israeli ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer reportedly also attended the meetings.”
Let’s put aside for a moment that Israel commits horrid human rights violations against the Palestinians and has policies that amount to racist apartheid. Israel’s spy agency has a history of nastiness against the United States. And in return we give them $3.5 billion a year in so-called aid:
“‘No other country close to the United States continues to cross the line on espionage like the Israelis do,’ said a former congressional staffer who attended another classified briefing in late 2013, one of several in recent months given by officials from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the State Department, the FBI and the National Counterintelligence Directorate.”
Trump, who literally begged billionaire American and staunch pro-Israel supporter Sheldon Adelson for money when his campaign was crumbling got his wish. Adelson eventually obliged. Now it’s payback as Adelson and Israel have a stooge in the White House who will allow Israel to continue to behave like the hostile country it really is to the U.S. and its people.
