Intel and politics should never be mixed. The job of Intel agencies is to provide 'the timely truth well said.'* Politicians in the US and Israel have over the last half-century come to use the Intel services for political ends and to justify political objectives. Thus the once nameless, faceless, men running Shin Bet. Military Intelligence and Mossad in Israel have become political tools well known and ever emitting the desires of their political rulers. *The quote is from General Washington Platt.
