CIA Calls Israel Main US Regional Spy Threat
Israel maintains a vast spying apparatus on America.

On July 28, AP reported it. Anonymous sources were cited. The CIA's Tel Aviv station chief discovered "sensitive equipment he used (at home) to communicate with" headquarters personnel in Langley, VA was compromised.
He told his superiors. It happened to Washington's previous station chief. It wasn't coincidental. It showed allies spy on each other. Israeli intelligence spies on its US counterparts.
A CIA official in Israel discovered "the food in (his) refrigerator had been rearranged." Washington blames Israel's security services for these incidents. It shows what's well known but ignored publicly.
Netanyahu spokesman Mark Regev claims "Israel does not spy on the United States of America."
He lied. Israel spies every day in every way it thinks it can get away with. Before 9/11, the FBI uncovered a massive US-based spy ring. Israel ran it. It remains active.
In the process, it betrays America. Numerous Israeli citizens are involved. They have close ties to foreign military, criminal and intelligence sources. They reportedly breached US law enforcement wiretaps earlier.
In 2011, former CIA counterintelligence specialist/military intelligence officer Philip Giraldi accused Israel of stealing everything it gets its hands on. It includes military and industrial secrets.
"The reality of Israeli spying is indisputable," he said. "Israel always features prominently in the annual FBI report."
It's called "Foreign Economic Collection and Industrial Espionage." In 2005, it said:- Advertisement -
"Israel has an active program to gather proprietary information within the United States."
"These collection activities are primarily directed at obtaining information on military systems and advanced computing applications that can be used in Israel's sizable armaments industry."
