Leaked Report Shows Israel as ‘Priority Target’ for U.S. Intelligence
JNS.org – A document leaked by U.S. National Security Agency whistle-blower Edward Snowden shows that “Uncle Sam” does not only spy on his enemies, but his allies as well—labeling Israel as a “priority target,” according to a Washington Post report on Thursday.
The Washington Post published parts of Snowden’s leaked and highly classified U.S. intelligence “black budget” file. The 178-page report details a budget that totals $52.6 billion. The report states that U.S. counterintelligence operations “are strategically focused against [the] priority targets of China, Russia, Iran, Cuba and Israel.”
