to anyone who worked there; no questions asked - at least according to what this article reveals: http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/1162659.html "she asked another clerk in the office to copy the folder onto two disks" - which she apparently did. "No one asked questions or showed interest in why she needed the files of secret material on disks before her discharge". These are supposed to be documents that can threaten national security? Well now I don't about Israel, but in the United States, one must have two things in order to even view classified files; one is a security clearance equal to, or greater than, the material being accessed, and the other is the NEED for access - without which you cannot. And attempting to copy, under ANY circumstances, would have you in cuffs before you even started. Not only did Anat have free access to this stuff, but she had a co-worker put it on disk for her. Explain that Cipora, if these documents are really that sensitive to national security. "Operational plans", you quoted in a another talkback. Of course operational plans! Blau's article on the West Bank assassinations was based one of those operational plans. Threat to national security? Nope! Threat to the operation itself? Nope; it happened already. The only threat is to the IDF's ability to continue its extralegal activities; and THAT Cipora, is the work of a "whistleblower", NOT a spy!
