PLAYING "I, SPY"

On Monday, October 21, I linked to a story at Debka about how Turkey had blown the cover of some Mossad spies. Debka goes on to report that President Obama had the story leaked as a public warning to Benjamin Netanyahu.

Early last year, the Erdogan government blew the cover of up to 10 Israel agents in Iran who had been meeting inside Turkey with their Mossad case officers. This story was published in The Washington Post, by David Ignatius, who has excellent connections in the US capital, Thursday, Oct. 17 – the day after a two-day conference in Geneva between six world powers with Iran on its nuclear program. A chorus of Western powers led by the US hailed the event as “substantive” and “forward-looking.”

But on the quiet, the WP story was directed against Israel’s Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu as a caution to him to drop his “lone voice” posture against trusting Iran to abandon its nuclear weapon aspirations. Instead, he must look forward and start getting used to the “new Middle East" and role Barack Obama has assigned for Iran. If he persists in his defiant attitude, Israeli intelligence may face more debacles like the Turkish betrayal. (emphasis mine)

Okay, so we learn on Oct 17 a story is published in the Washington Post by a reporter with good connections to the White House. The purpose -- to intimidate Benjamin Netanyahu away from voicing his concerns about Iran going nuclear. Instead, President Obama is signaling that Netanyahu MUST accept a nuclear Iran because that is the way Obama wants things, and if Netanyahu doesn't comply, he should expect that more of his Mossad could be publicly exposed.

Within 48 hours of publication, on October 23, boom!

Angela Merkel makes a phone call to President Obama because she has learned that the U.S. may have listened in on her cell phone calls and demands an explanation from President Obama.

Angela Merkel calls Obama after finding out U.S. may have spied on her mobile phone

Wouldn't you like to have been a fly on that wall?

Apparently Obama explained to Merkel that the U.S. isn't listening in on her calls.

The next day, October 24, we learn that Merkel has company. Drudge headlines that the NSA boys have been really busy -- at least 35 world leaders have had their phone calls tapped.



October 25 -- Foreign Policy says it like it is:

EXCLUSIVE: Exclusive: Germany, Brazil Turn to U.N. to Restrain American Spies



Get that? "American Spies"!

Among the nations turning to the U.N. is Brazil. MSM didn't report much on the flap but a month ago, Brazil did a first ever -- turned down an invitation to a state dinner. Brazil refused the invitation in protest over learning that they had been spied upon. A 20-minute phone call from President Obama wasn't good enough to smooth ruffles feathers -- Brazil was a no show.

BRAZIL REFUSES WHITE HOUSE STATE DINNER

Let this sink in. On Oct. 21, a strong signal is sent to Benjamin Netanyahu from President Obama that if Netanyahu doesn't cool it on his rhetoric towards Iran then perhaps some Israeli spies might need to be exposed. Then within 48 hours, Obama is outed big time by Germany for his spying on allies. By the end of the week, Oct. 25, several nations join Germany in turning to the U.N. to demand that "U.S. spies" be restrained and President Obama be rebuked for his rather creepy tendency to play Peeping Tom on people who have been trusting him.

As we do unto Israel, so shall it be done unto us.
