Oohhhh! Al Jazz and Guardian Have New ‘Spy Cables’

Yet another Snowden/Manning-esque leak is out there, man. This time Al Jazzera is teaming up with The Guardian to give us some major intelligence scoops from the various agencies that covertly rule the world (CIA, Mossad, MI6 mainly).

Today’s big one: Israel lied about Iran’s nukes. They told the Spy World that Iran doesn’t have nukes in the works. Then, a month later, Bibi told the regular world they were a year away from a bomb.

Highlights include: 

Israel’s Mossad told its allies that Iran was not working to produce nuclear weapons just a month after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned it was barely a year from being able to do so

The CIA made attempts to contact Hamas directly despite the US government listing the Palestinian group as a “terrorist organisation”

Britain’s MI6 sought South African help in an operation to recruit a North Korean official who had previously refused their cash; and South African and Ethiopian spies struggled to “neutralise” an assassination plot targeting a leading African diplomat.
