    A news item from October 2012 reports that Cypriot authorities were put on the individual by Israeli intelligence services. So two weeks before Burgas, Israelis, who have been monitoring him heavily, who know all his recent contacts etc, turn him over. And the man had the license plate numbers of the buses to be used by Israeli tourists in Burgas? So is the next step some mini scandal to explain the lapse by Israelis monitoring that network? You could say the lead Israeli was having an affair with his biographer. No Petraeus wasted that one on Benghazi. How about an agent who picked up a hooker and got his cellphone stolen so he could not report the movements of the terrorists? Throw in a veneral disease and some cocaine and the Daily Mail will put it on top of the front page.
