Photograph: Manuel Balce Ceneta/AP Aides to Donald Trump, the US president, hired an Israeli private intelligence agency to orchestrate a dirty ops campaign against key individuals from the Obama administration who helped negotiate the Iran nuclear deal, the Observer can reveal.
People in the Trump camp contacted private investigators in May last year to get dirt on Ben Rhodes, who had been one of Barack Obamas top national security advisers, and Colin Kahl, deputy assistant to Obama, as part of an elaborate attempt to discredit the deal.
The extraordinary revelations come days before Trumps 12 May deadline to either scrap or continue to abide by the international deal limiting Irans nuclear programme.
Jack Straw, who as foreign secretary was involved in earlier efforts to restrict Iranian weapons, said: These are extraordinary and appalling allegations but which also illustrate a high level of desperation by Trump and [the Israeli prime minister] Benjamin Netanyahu, not so much to discredit the deal but to undermine those around it.
One former high-ranking British diplomat with wide experience of negotiating international peace agreements, requesting anonymity, said: Its bloody outrageous to do this. The whole point of negotiations is to not play dirty tricks like this.

Amen to that.
Think Trump had to beg the Israelis to lose k into this?
Good on them.

Leftist klaptrapbthat blows its cover ( trying to blame the Jews) right at the start. Yes, Bibi is concerned about the Iranian threat. But Israel is only the Iranian islamonazis lesser target. USA is and always has been their Great Satan to be nuked first. Actually, first, second, third, 4th, 5th, 6th, and seventh -per their own words, plans, threats. Any responsible American official doesnt need any encouragement from Jerusalem to remove the Iranian threat. None at all. (. It was only the enemy agent previously in our white house that set America up for nuclear destruction from his Iranian islamonazi bffs. )
