    Innocent! Maybe Zygier is 100% innocent and he hung himself because he refused to sign a plea bargain stating that he betrayed the country that he loves. That means that someone else betrayed the Mossad and he is still out there. Or, it is entirely possible, that the Australian intelligence put the pieces of the puzzle together on their own. In other words, there is no mole, no leak. The Australian intelligence put it together and decided to do nothing, because they support Israel's efforts to stop Iran's nuclear ambitions. All the Australian's wanted was plausible deniability. However, this was not enough for the one member of the Australian intelligence, who, evidently, tipped off the Australian journalist. When this journalist started asking questions about the Mossad operation against Iran, everyone in the Mossad went ballistic and started to accuse Zyglier. But they were wrong! He did not betray the country that he loves and he refused to sign a document admitting that he did. He felt trapped in the system. No one knew where he was; he was separated from his family; and for six months never saw the light of day. He felt trapped both physically and spiritually. His options were limited. This is a tragedy on all sides. And if what I am hypothesizing is true, the Mossad has suffered a completely self-inflicted wound. All because, they accused the wrong man, who loved his country and his honor.
