Walla! reported yesterday a serious scandal brewing in a “major Israeli security agency.” Due to censorship, the reporter could not offer any further details. Normally, I might have a source that might expand on a story like this. But in this case, I’ve largely struck out. My usual security source is clamming up. He’s pooh-poohing the scandal and claiming it will not amount to much. His words:
Please note, this is not my personal view. I believe where there’s smoke there’s lots of fire.
The above scandals were all references to past major intelligence cases involving Shabak. Given this information, I guessed that the current scandal also involves Israel’s domestic spy agency. I have now confirmed this through a separate source.
The source indicated that the new case is different than the spy and terror cases mentioned above. The other two types of common scandals involving Israeli security agencies involve sex or corruption. My money is on either or both of these being the main factors in the case.
If anyone reading this has further details please be in touch. Time to break the censor’s stranglehold on truth and information.
