    Personally, I was shocked by the news reports of the flotilla. I immediately thought it was a black-flag Iranian operation. I couldn't believe it was sanctioned by Israel just because there were THOUSANDS of alternatives that would have benefited Israel instead of sending into an isolation abyss. Anyway, my conspiracy theory is loose, and even I don't firmly believe it, but who is to say that the CIA wasn't involved in making sure the Flotilla raid occurred? It provides political space for America to distance itself from Israeli policies. Indeed, it even created a situation where the blockade was untenable -- giving America the leigh way to speak against it. I think the CIA is involved in covert efforts to slowly weaken the relationship between the US and Israel. Why else were the top IDF military officials not listened to? Why would such a smart country act so stupid? It just seems so fishy...
