Israeli Intelligence Furious Over Trump's Loose Lips

Source: Foreign Policy

Just days before President Donald Trump’s arrival in Tel Aviv, Israeli intelligence officials were shouting at their American counterparts in meetings, furious over news that the U.S. commander-in-chief may have compromised a vital source of information on the Islamic State and possibly Iran, according to a U.S. defense official in military planning.

“To them, it’s horrifying,” the official, who attended the meetings, told Foreign Policy. “Their first question was: What is going on? What is this?”

White House officials are touting Trump’s visit to Israel next week as a chance to show U.S. solidarity with its closest Middle East ally after eight years of friction between former President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

But behind the public display of harmony, Israeli intelligence officers are angry and alarmed over sensitive information revealed by the U.S. president in a May 10 meeting in the White House with Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

1. It probably took Mossad YEARS to get an asset inside of ISIS.

It took Trump 30 seconds to destroy that effort.

3. Not to mention what effect Trump's little 'indiscretion' may have

on the asset's life span.

5. And they complained about Obama

but Obama wasn't about to cross anyone in any of the global ICs. Meanwhile this clown doesn't give a shit nor does he have a clue regarding what might result due to his arrogant recklessness and insults of those ICs.

6. How do you know what intel he shared with who?

The only reason we know this and the only reason ISIS knows this, in all likelihood, is because of the reports in the media.

Unless we think that Russia is a big supporter of extreme Salafist thought and their extreme measures against such groups in the Caucasus is all a clever ruse before announcing that Putin is Muslim and the Russian Orthodox Church is actually Islam in masquerade.

7. I expect that they would know

yay or nay via back channels or other chatter - and if it had happened, it would have definitely hit the media.

Russia has an interest in pipelines to get their product out on the market. I'm sure you've seen the various maps. Religion is irrelevant to Russia but they have to deal with creating a distribution network through countries in religious turmoil.

10. It'll Get Worse

 

Frankly, I'll be surprised if Donnie doesn't piss on the Wailing Wall.
