FTA: While Kerry's position on the Israel-Palestine peace talks was Israel's number one priority, Russia's number one priority was to learn the U.S. plans and position regarding the Ukrainian separatist movement and Russia's involvement with it.  My source had this to say:

"...It's a "fruitful ongoing joint venture" initiated by (Foreign Minister Avigdor) Lieberman thanks to his Moscow connections. Israel provides Russia with recordings of intercepted calls Kerry makes flying over the Middle East, and Russia provides Israel with recordings of calls he makes flying over Central Asia, the Far East & the Pacific Ocean. The source notes this "joint venture" became extremely important for Moscow since last February - because of the Ukrainian crisis."

Yeah. It must really suck when a government invades the personal privacy of an American citizen...
 
2014-08-04 02:11:39 PM  
yeah, but its OK because we do it to them *eyeroll*

If Kerry is making phone calls on an open line, it's because he wants everyone to hear what he's saying.  I bet it's effective as all hell, too - because you can't listen to Kerry speaking at a podium for more than 5 minutes without going into a coma.

I would hope so.  I wonder how State feels about the Israel/Russia connection being outed right now.  It's not as if they don't know Israel is not our best friend.

One would think that kind of revelation would give State more leverage, but that would assume that Bibi gives a rat's ass about State.  Which he does not.  The US Congress is what matters to the Israelis, closely followed by a POTUS willing to re-arm them with missiles and smart bombs after another one of their escapades.

I'm guessing if Kerry talked on an open line, he wanted it to be intercepted, but maybe not the entire world to know the landscape.  But I may be over-thinking it.

Some of the $3 billion dollars that we give to them, they use to buy weapons from us.

Its a job creator!

The US Congress just *unanimously* voted to support Israel.

Now, tell me when is the last time this Congress unanimously voted on anything?

Rule #1 of geopolitics:  everyone spies on everyone.  They've been doing it since Narmer built the first nation.

Well they have been caught spying on us (twice) so there's that.

Israel? nothing but the protection of Amighty God because we are protecting his chosen people.
 
2014-08-04 04:35:53 PM  
But I've been told they're our bestest friends ever!
 
2014-08-04 04:35:58 PM  
The only solution is to bulldoze down some of Kerry's top advisers then build a 30 foot tall wall around him.

Hey! It works for Israel!

Quiet.  Listen closely.  That sound is the sound of 100 million evangelical Americans fapping to the idea of Israel and the Book of Revelations.

/you must be an anti-semite.
//how dare you question our support for Israel.
///God wants us to support them.
////how dare you question GOD!!!

It's almost like their leaders have their countries interest in mind.

Unfortunately when the Kerry phonecall tapes are played, the only thing he seems to say is "I am Groot."
 
2014-08-04 04:38:30 PM  
You'd be getting a lot more from Israel if it wasn't for the BDS movement.
 
2014-08-04 04:38:38 PM  
I'm sure Congress will be falling all over themselves to publicly condemn this, and call an emergency session to cancel that $225 million dollar handout.

Right?


Any moment now...

I have it on good authority that Togo is completely innocent.

As for the Fark headline, my first thought was, well, at least somebody is getting some good info out of Kerry.
 
2014-08-04 04:39:59 PM  
I'd be willing to bet the CIA has known this for years and has been feeding misinformation to the Russians.
 
2014-08-04 04:42:12 PM  
I'd have sworn they weren't listening to him at all.

What's nice is we don't need to spy on them to get a sense of their real plans, they post it on facebook.

It didn't go to well for the last group of people thinking that they were the chosen race.

Since I read this on a blog, I'm sure it's true.

What's the fuss? It's not like they've ever stolen nuclear secrets from us or anything.

We know this because the NSA was listening to the Israelis while they did it.

Also, the Russians are playing the phone calls backwards to see if they can weaponize the result.
