FWIW

Comverse owns 52% of Verint and it was Comverse Infosys who gave Turkey via the Israeli govt or Mossad the location of the PKK chief Abdullah Ocalan in Kenya back in 1999.
Now we just have to wait for a false flag for the upcoming Olympic games in London !!!! all thanks to Verint (like the Vancouver games - FUD works).

For what it's worth, it's not what has Israel done for the U.S., but it's what will Israel do for the U.S. The marker is yet to be called in. It's a significant marker, and Israel doesn't know it.

This is just the latest manifestation of an long-term effort by the Israelis to penetrate US telecom at all levels. Remember during the Bush salad days, Jack Abramoff almost got an Israeli client put in charge of the Congressional network infrastructure. These guys are good, but their skills are inflated and rely on political hacks like this to gain access.

They had root access to Lebanon's entire telco, but they eventually got outed, and now they sit in prison there, awaiting death-level charges. This is probably one reason why they prefer to work in the US, where they can grease the skids so much easier, and secrets like this are covered up, not prosecuted among friend$.

Don't tell that to CBC Television. Even though there was an infiltration of the Lebanese telecom network by the Israeli spies, the CBC's Senior Washington correspondent keeps maintaining that the whole evidence gathered by Lebanese police and UN investigators “points overwhelmingly” to the fact that “an eight-member hit squad backed by Hezbollah was behind” former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri’s 2005 assassination.

A related subject: The April 2012 edition of Wired magazine has an interesting "exclusive report", by James Bamford about NSA's new data center being built in Utah.

Purportedly, the data center will be able to store yottabytes of data, both encrypted and non-encrypted. The report says that NSA made a technology breakthrough that aids in cryptoanalysis or decryption of "unfathomably complex encyption systems" in use today. Thus, opening the door for gleaning intelligence from the yottabytes of encrypted data that can be stored at the new data center; e.g., financial transactions, military and diplomatic communications, etc.

Here's a link to an online version of the Wired article:

KH: As usual, Bamford overhypes.

All: As for "warrantless wiretapping" FISA is alive and well at NSA.

The evidence is all based on cell phone records - something the Israelis could easily 'spoof' with their root network access. The investigation has dragged on so long, and been so compromised that it will never be the smoking gun that Jeffrey Feltman prays for in his nighty pipe dreams about Hizb.

Dear Rufus,

I believe you, but Bamford overhypes what, exactly?
And how does FISA protect the millions alluded to?

RST,

Former DIRNSA/DCI Hayden should have been, and still should be held accountable for his role in allowing Israel's penetration of NSA.

Hayden should have never been allowed to become DIRNSA to begin with, based on other matters he was involved in.

J

RST,

Also one should include former DIRNSA Adm. McConnell alongside former DIRNSA Hayden for aiding and abetting Israeli penetration of NSA.

J

Colonel,

What is a nation to do with the now ingrained pro-Israeli NEOCONS now buried within several of our sensitive government agencies.

Israel has had (and still does) a steady track-record for taking (a.k.a. stealing) U.S. sensitive tech and using it against as well as selling it back to U.S. with some of their slight modifications.
I find it very interesting how that the Israels dirty dealings (theft) with our Patriot systems is now coming back to haunt them in a big way.

With back-stabbing 'friends' like Israel who have repeatedly and still continues to stab U.S. in the back, who needs enemies?
