Donald Trump is destroying America’s strong relationship with one of its most trusted allies, faster than you can say: Vladimir Putin is Donald Trump’s Puppet Master.
Israeli Intelligence is ‘boiling mad’ and they are demanding answers from the Trump administration. They are saying this is “their worst fears confirmed”.
Two Israeli intelligence officers confirmed to BuzzFeed Tuesday that Israel had shared specific intelligence with the U.S. about Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) plots to smuggle explosive laptops onto planes.
“We have an arrangement with America which is unique to the world of intelligence sharing,” one intelligence officer told BuzzFeed. “We do not have this relationship with any other country.”
“To know that this intelligence is shared with others, without our prior knowledge? That is, for us, our worst fears confirmed,” the officer added.
“[They’re] boiling mad and demanding answers,” another Israeli intelligence official told BuzzFeed about his colleagues in the wake of Trump’s disclosure.
Why would Israeli intelligence be this furious?
Alex Burns, of the New York Times, points out one of the real possibilities.
Betraying Israel, one of our closest allies, to impress his Russian buddies. Russia knows they have the perfect automaton in Donald Trump and they are going to exploit him every chance they get for their own gain.
