Israel accused of planting mysterious spy devices near the White House
he U.S. government concluded within the past two years that Israel was most likely behind the placement of cellphone surveillance devices that were found near the White House and other sensitive locations around Washington, according to three former senior U.S. officials with knowledge of the matter.
But unlike most other occasions when flagrant incidents of foreign spying have been discovered on American soil, the Trump administration did not rebuke the Israeli government, and there were no consequences for Israel’s behavior, one of the former officials said.
From posts at Steve Sailer:
* The law of life is that losers always say they finished last because they were too nice a guy. Jews are good at influencing elites, but they are so successful at it, that everyone assumes Jewry’s success must be due to them employing unscrupulous methods. Jews are most dangerous and effective when they are using freindly persuasion and the language of mutual advantage, or to put it differently: trade. At the James Bond stuff, Jews are comparatively poor.
Like the Rothschilds’ fortune that got started by them gaining the confidence of a coin collecting prince by selling to him at silly low prices, the Jewish way is to place under obligation by acts of apparent selflessness. Epstein rang rings round everyone not by blackmail, but by seeming to be a nice guy and gracious intelectuals’ salon host who was loyal to his many eminent friends, which they reciprocated even after he was exposed. Ehud Barak was unaware of what Epstein had actually been convicted of, having obviously trusted and been misled by him.
Intelligence services rarely do anything useful, but being the subject of an intense espionage effort by their opposite number makes everyone feel terribly validated and significant.
* Why would anything secure be sent in the clear over an ordinary cell phone? If the Israelis can sprinkle these devices around Washington, then why can’t the Russians and the Chinese and those branches of the Permanent Government that hate Trump (i.e. all of them) do the same?
Stingrays are used a lot by police. Washington has a whole alphabet soup of police agencies – the DC Police and the Capitol Police, etc., not to mention a whole bunch of intelligence agencies – the FBI and the CIA and military intelligence, etc.
Many of these agencies don’t really like Trump and would love to get the goods on him. When Comey met “privately” with Trump, Comey was peeing in his pants he was so anxious to leak the details of the meeting to the press. (Trump asked for his loyalty – can you imagine that? The President asking for high officials of the Executive Branch to be loyal to the Administration – how dare he? Doesn’t he know that the FBI is accountable to no one?) The FBI always liked being in a position to blackmail the President going all the way back to Hoover days. Maybe they were still trying to prove that Trump was talking to the Rooshians.
If I had to bet, the Stingrays belonged to one of those agencies. Maybe the Israelis were tasked to plant them to preserve deniability and that’s why they haven’t been rebuked. Israeli intelligence and US intelligence are frenemies.
