Wiretapped: Israel Eavesdropped on John Kerry in Mideast Talks
Spiegel Online ^ | 8-4-2014 | Der Spiegel Online

SPIEGEL has learned from reliable sources that Israeli intelligence eavesdropped on US Secretary of State John Kerry during Middle East peace negotiations. In addition to the Israelis, at least one other intelligence service also listened in as Kerry mediated last year between Israel, the Palestinians and the Arab states, several intelligence service sources told SPIEGEL. Revelations of the eavesdropping could further damage already tense relations between the US government and Israel.

I’m sure that the NSA and CIA were both eaves dropping on the Israeli’s during that same period

That’s what countries do.They spy on each other.

-—— eavesdropped——

That’s a rather vague term. What precisely did they do?

Did they have a couple visiting Washington DC from Florida intercept cell phone calls with equipment from Radio Shack?

In this day and age of hitech cell phone GIS tracking and nanotechnology robotics, anybody who thinks they can secretly conduct international affairs is woefully ignorant of human nature.

Can you imagine the laughs and giggles when that tape was played back? He probably started going on about how he was in Vietnam and saw peoples ears getting cut off....etc. Hopefully someone will leak it!

Listening in on Kerry is a waste of time.

He’s entirely predictable.

I’d be disappointed if they DIDN’T eavesdrop. This administration can’t be trusted; the only method available to get the straight scoop is to listen in as the Israelis did.

Why wouldn’t they eavesdrop? They’ve seen how the NSA operates.

Israel heard Kerry telling people “I served in Vietnam” in secret conversations.

Israel did right in not trusting the Obama administration.

LOL better than what I was thinking, “that they didn’t learn anything.”

They should be getting intel from Qatar, forget DC.

When it comes to plain unencrypted telephone communication Kerry gets what he deserves. I’d like to ask our spooks, how does it feel?

Israeli would be fools not to use every means at their disposal to see what the Kerry/Obama team is doing. Kerry is out to weaken both the Us and Israel and has done a pretty good job at it. He is a traitor - has been - now - and during Vietnam war.

Kerry stuck his nose into the Egyptian talks today, wanting to turn them into “two state” talks. The situation is delicate, the Egyptians have the sides in different rooms and are shuttling between, and horse-face is making comments that could blow the whole thing up. The man needs to just STFU.

Maybe Israel has an account with the NSA Webstore so they can download all the information they need.
