3226RE: Israeli compromise of U.S. telecommunications?
- Mar 6 11:18 AMThe Washington Post dismissal of the so called "Israeli Art Students" story
Someone has a spin they want to get out.
The memo they described is more like a counterintelligence activity report,
in that it is a summary of inquiries and follow ups from dozens of DEA field
offices and other US Government facilities reporting dates and times of
literally hundreds of encounters with the students. Rarely are they ever
arrested, but they were interviewed on many occasions. It appears to my
naive eyes as a serious report that took some time and resources to
assemble. I also saw slides and notes from an FBI/DEA briefing on the IAS
investigation. As the Post asserts, it may all be written by the same guy
who leaked it. I don't know the origins of the copy I saw.
There is only one line in the document that describes it as a possible
counter intelligence activity. Certainly an alternate hypothesis is hard to
come up with given the patterns of behavior. But the post article seeks to
dissuade people from the espionage hypothesis.
We have learned that it has been linked by some people in the government to
the AMDOCS story and as I understand it, one of the "students" was bailed
out of jail by someone who works for AMDOCS. Not proof of any relation
between the two stories but it is intriguing to say the least!
Whether it is espionage or something more byzantine it is hard to say.
