'Israel ranked 3rd most aggressive intelligence service against US'

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4520703,00.html

In new NSA document leaked by Edward Snowden, Israel is said to spy on US to learn its true positions on Mideast issues.

A new NSA document, stolen by whistleblower Edward Snowden and released recently through journalist Glenn Greenwald, states that CIA investigations "ranked Israel the third most aggressive intelligence service against the US," according to a Newsweek report on Friday.

The NSA addressed America's complex intelligence relationship with Israel in the document, saying that, "The Israelis are extraordinarily good (Signals Intelligence) partners for us, but on the other (hand), they target us to learn our positions on Middle East problems."

Cooperation between the two countries may be unparalleled when spying on third parties, but the leaked paper puts Israel just behind China and Russia in its attempts to gather intelligence on the US.

1. AIPAC must know

who to campaign against. We can't elect representatives who put US interests ahead of Israel.

4. Got to give it to the US, they don't seem to mind being suckered.........

"The Israelis are extraordinarily good (Signals Intelligence) partners for us, but on the other (hand), they target us to learn our positions on Middle East problems."

The US even passes raw intercept data on American citizens' conversations to Israel with the proviso that Israel must delete any conversation between US Government officials that it finds in the raw data..........Ha, ha!
