At this point it looks like a PR move to create some agit-prop against Israel. Its really an old cold war trick. East Germany, for example, organized and funded extremist anti-communist and para-Nazi groups in West Germany in the 1950s to try via scandal to de-legitimize that government. It has emerged over the past few years that many of the events that lead to the death o Aldo Moro had the signature of the CIA and were applied to "instrumentalize the Red Brigades" and to de-legitimize the PCI (Italian Communist movement). In the late 1960s Whe CIA and FBI supported many French revolutionary groups (paid informants or provocateurs?). Its old hat. Burn down the Reichstag and claim... It does not matter if Israel is not involved. It does not even matter if the case has any merits to go before court or if even Nozette could sue the FBI for entrapment and libel. What matters is that the headline: "spy for Israel"
