Report: Israel spied on confidential Iran nuclear talks, leaked information

Israel allegedly spied on closed-door negotiations world powers were holding with Iran on its nuclear program, the Wall Street Journal reported Monday, quoting White House officials.

According to the report, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government also gathered information from confidential US briefings, informants and diplomatic contacts in Europe.

The Journal reports that the Obama administration was less concerned with the fact Israel spied on the talks and more concerned by Israel leaking this confidential information to American lawmakers and others in order to build a case against the deal being negotiated.

    If the UK was planning on selling out Canada to the Soviets I would expect Harper and the government to do everything in it’s power to spy on and disrupt those negotiations for the sake of saving Canada.

    To expect Bibi to lay down and allow Obama to sell Israel out to the iranians is stupid and idiotic.

    Oh, boo-hoo.

  • Obama doesn’t want American lawmakers to know the details.

    Why? What is he hiding?

      The problem is giving USA information to USA congressmen?

    In Quebec there is a term for shoddy construction, the same term can be used for this present American administration.”Nigger built”.

    The WSJ article included some language that hearkened back to a report last year about Israeli spying. In that case it was a complaint about Israel being the worst offender, costing the USA a lot of money. It came across as a propaganda leak, possibly from the Obama Admin.

    The Israeli explanation here is most likely true. Israel is extremely careful about lying outright if only because of the all the hostile analysis its every move attracts.

    I expect Obama to begin airstrikes on Israel soon. Concentration camps for Jews can’t be far behind.

  • Just a thought

    Israel isn’t playing fair. Just because Obama is enabling a bunch of lunatics to be able to nuke her, is no reason to be attempting to stop him. //s//

    This would be the same Obama who authorized the transfer of all of the British launch codes for their nuclear arsenal to the Russians? The same Obama who has been caught spying on Merkel? What a douche.
