    Report: NSA spied on Israel

    US and British spy agencies eavesdropped on an Israeli prime minister, energy firms, aid agencies and an EU official overseeing anti-trust cases, the New York Times reported Friday.

    In surveillance of more than 1,000 targets in more than 60 countries between 2008 to 2011, the National Security Agency and Britain's General Communications Headquarters spied on the communications of foreign leaders, including former Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert, according to secret documents revealed by intelligence contractor Edward Snowden.

    Don't get bored with this yet. That expensive encryption your paying for, probably isn't secure from the NSA who has bribed their way into back door access. And don't get bored because while Snowden has disclosed a couple hundred thousand documents he has a trove of 1.7 million!

    I hear that the NSA has an all female staff. One of the job requirements is to be terminally nosey.

    I think Bibi would not so much be disappointed if the US had not been doing its job as angry at such irresponsibility. A country on which Israeli security so much depends should be doing, what it takes to maintain that security, is what he will be thinking.

    At this point? Before Snowden, had anyone told me what I know now, I would have shrugged and said: I would hope they are doing that and more.
    Only where domestic actions are concerned, would I want to revisit what went on. There might not have been enough check and balance in place.

    Isreal has no reason to complain. While this does not justify the US spying on Isreal, think about the amount of aid the US has provided them. They should never complain about anything.
