The mother of all mysteries, making Stuxnet look like a B-grade movie, is unfolding in Israel over Prisoner X.

The New York Times has a good summary:

There's not much of a mystery other than who Zygier was working for.

It seems clear that Zygier was working in intelligence, that he betrayed Israeli intelligence in favor of some other intelligence organization, he got caught and he was imprisoned.

His death's status will never be resolved and the information he passed will remain secret.

Didn’t Iran execute some Israeli spies a few months back? Is it possible this guy was a double agent involved with that matter?

Maybe not if he was jailed in 2010.

If he betrayed top Israel secrets, then he deserved to die.

Isn’t it obvious Prisoner X was caught trying to leak or sell operational information on Stuxnet?

We all did a good job keeping it secret until Obama decided to disclose.

Probably not, or he would have been swapped for Jonathan Pollard. Iran sounds more likely.

Sounds like Johnny Pollard only Pollard hasn’t gotten hung in his prison cell by his guards, yet.

Considering the fact that he was a dual Australian/Israeli citizen working for Mossad, the Australian government got told of his arrest/imprisonment 3 years ago via intel channels instead of diplomatic channels and the Australian government hasn’t raised a peep in all that time...

I’d guess that he was possibly was a double agent for ASIS that got caught.

Time will tell. I don’t think that meets the criteria for his circumstance, plus the Aussies seem to be taken a bit off guard...

In late May 2010 Australia expelled the Mossad station chief (allegedly over the use of Australian passports in the killing of a top Hamas terrorist) so relations weren’t the best at the time. Knowing our current lefty government, they would have been screaming at the top of their lungs, especially since an election was due to be held within a few months (a bit of Jew bashing would have helped them in a couple of seats with large Muslim/leftly populations).

I think we got our caught with our wang hanging out trying to plant a double inside Mossad.
