Former CIA counterterrorism officer Philip Giraldi
Former CIA counterterrorism officer Philip Giraldi says Israel conducts more espionage against the United States than any other US ally.
The former CIA officer explained how Israel steals both technologies and secrets from the US, and sells them to other countries. An example, Giraldi said, is the Chinese Chengdu Jet J-10 that has been built with technologies that originally came from the US.
This is despite the fact that Israel relies heavily on the US for political and military support.
“It should almost be seen as an act of war,” Giraldi said.
He also made reference to the strong Israeli lobbies in Washington.
The ex-CIA officer, who is currently the Executive Director of the Council for the National Interest Foundation, has authored the report The Spy Who Loves Us.
In the report, Giraldi has sought to expose the dangers and costs Israeli espionage poses for the US.
According to the report, almost all US government bodies including the FBI and General Accountability Office have confirmed that Israeli espionage continues to take place.
In a 2010 interview with Press TV, Giraldi said “many of these state agencies are actually Israeli companies that are working for the States,”
