    US, Britain Hacked Into Israeli Drone Operations

    U.S. and British intelligence cracked the codes of Israeli drone operations in the Middle East and monitored Israeli Air Force communications dating back to 1998, several media outlets reported Friday.

    The investigative website The Intercept, the German magazine Der Spiegel, and Israel's Yedioth Ahronoth daily attributed the disclosures they published Friday to former U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) contractor Edward Snowden, who leaked millions of documents about U.S. government surveillance in 2013.

    The Intercept, an online publication associated with journalist Glenn Greenwald, who has collaborated with Snowden, said the hacking gave intelligence agencies a “virtual seat in the cockpit'” as Israeli drones hit militant targets.

    Yedioth Ahronoth said that the hacking operation, codenamed "Anarchist," began in 1998 at a British facility in the Troodos Mountains of Cyprus and an NSA site at Menwith Hill, in northern England.

    Israel did not officially comment on the reports, but Israeli Minister of Energy Yuval Steinitz expressed disappointment.

    Steinitz, a member of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's security cabinet who previously held the post of minister of intelligence affairs, said Israelis were not surprised by the reports, adding that “the Americans spy on every country in the world and on us as well, on their friends.''

    Steinitz told Israeli Army Radio the reported hacking is "disappointing" given that, in his words, “we haven't been spying or collecting intelligence or cracking codes in the United States for decades.''

    The U.S. and Britain declined to comment on the issue. The spokespersons for the respective embassies in Tel Aviv said that they do not publicly discuss intelligence matters.

    In a perfect World, we'd neuter them the same way they did Iran.

    The Iranians hacked the UK military and took control of the newest best drones the Ameristani's had and showed the world how easy it was. Result, no more drones over Iran.

    IDF Commander: We Fired More Than a Million Cluster Bombs in Lebanon - Haaretz - Israeli News Source Haaretz.com

    Israel's use of cluster bombs at the end of the 2006 Lebanon conflict :

    "What is shocking and completely immoral is 90% of the cluster bomb strikes occurred in the last 72 hours of the conflict, when we knew there would be a resolution," the UN humanitarian chief, Jan Egeland, said soon after the war ended.

    Hypocritical bastards.

    Since Sept. 11, more than 60 Israelis have been arrested or detained, either under the new patriot anti-terrorism law, or for immigration violations. A handful of active Israeli military were among those detained, according to investigators, who say some of the detainees also failed polygraph questions when asked about alleged surveillance activities against and in the United States. There is no indication that the Israelis were involved in the 9/11 attacks, but investigators suspect that they Israelis may have gathered intelligence about the attacks in advance, and not shared it. A highly placed investigator said there are "tie-ins." But when asked for details, he flatly refused to describe them, saying, "evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified. I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It's classified information."
