    The American consulate in Jerusalem routinely holds furniture auctions to dispose of unwanted items. The woman purchased the cabinets in December of 2005 but decided to come forward with the files after hearing about a Sept. 22, 2008 incident in which a Palestinian teenager crashed a BMW into a group of Israeli soldiers.

    Paula, whose son's unit was the one that was struck by the car, says she was angered when she heard that the car was purchased from an auction held by the consulate.

    U.S. officials insist the car was never linked to them. A FOX News investigation also found there was no connection.

    Paula, an Israeli who also holds U.S. citizenship, says she wanted to expose the incident because her loyalty is to the state of Israel.


    Also, that doesn't quite comport with this earlier statement:

    "We couldn't believe what we found," said Paula, who purchased the cabinets and asked that her last name not be published. "We thought of calling the American consulate right away, and then we thought, you know they'll just hide it and say, 'Oh, we made a mistake.'"
    If her loyalty is to the state of Israel, then why would she care if the US consulate covered it up? Why didn't she give the information to the Israelis?

    This was my first thought.

    "Man, this filing cabinet sucks, let's sell it so we can get like $30 back"
    "Okay, should we empty it out first?"
    "Nah, **** that, this **** is AS IS"

    I hope there was an unwrapped condom in there too-- now that seems like something you would leave in a cabinet.

    Haha. Maybe they had to GTFO of their place as quickly as possible. Maybe there's something up we don't know.. AHHH CLOVERFIELD FLASHBACK
