    All the sensational news fit to print. Sometimes bordering on the science fiction. Nobody in his right mind would believe these speculative half truths, neither would we believe in half of what our erstwhile Dubai Police Chief concocted to be a Mossad Operation using over 30 agents in Dubai. There has always been one incident that never made sense. The fact that some member or members of the hit team boarded a shio to Iran. Now, assuming that the hit was actually an International Affair, then we can give Iranian Intelligence 10 points. Assuming it was a combined Affair, then again we must see fallout on a grand scale. Dubai, no doubt, is a center of intrigue, a center where many foreign agents of all walks of life congregate, somewhat akin to Lisbon during WW.2. Of course, if this was some Mossad OP, using new members as a wet run, then Mossad has no doubt become not only careless, but we must award Mossad with a minus 6 points on the Spy Scale. Unless, Israel has another all new Spy Agency, one that should be not only become downgraded to a circus level but also banished to the Gulag. Far too many glaring clues have become public knowledge, far too many operational mistakes point not to Mossad, but rather to some off the shelf agency that has caused one of the worst public relations fiasco in recent history. No doubt, with so much information, a movie will be shown soon enough in theaters nearby. The question is, why is the alleged Mossad operative travelling around, instead of herding sheep in he Negev. The answer is, he is not a Mossad agent. Merely a businessman caught up in a spiders web of intrigue so well spun in Dubai, by the masters themselves. Good day.
