So what? The U.S. gets LOTS of intelligence and a myriad of other hi-tech and info benefits for them bucks... that is, if the CIA or any of the other agencies don't screw it up a la 9/11.

Before you're so quick to pull the trigger, Jeff, take a step back and look at the whole picture and you'll realize that despite the global anti-Israel rhetoric which you seem to be so happy to embrace, Israel is the US's best friend and its best investment overseas.
