Comment: "Beyond Israel's borders" includes the U.S.

(See in situ)

"Beyond Israel's borders" includes the U.S.

"US sees Israel, tight Mideast ally, as spy threat"

Yet, as the article states, "...Israel as a steadfast U.S. ally enjoys access to the highest levels of the U.S. government in military and intelligence circles."

There is also the issue of Israeli citizens (dual American & Israeli citizens) who have served in the administration and Congress, including, to my understanding, the current Chairman of the U.S. Armed Services Committee, who is also a member of the U.S. Senate Homeland Security Subcommittee on Financial and Contracting Oversight and Chairman of the U.S. Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. I don't understand how the UNITED STATES does not consider this a gross conflict of interest - for a citizen of any other country to have such power within our government, no less given that "U.S. national security officials consider Israel to be, at times, a frustrating ally and a genuine counterintelligence threat."

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
