Grant Smith comes on the show to talk about his latest article on the close ties between the U.S. and Israeli military intelligence communities. He reveals that not only do American agencies share pretty much all their intel with their counterparts in Israel, but also how the U.S. agencies supplement their budgets with funding from the activities they’re supposedly helping to prevent, like drug and arms sales.
Discussed on the show:
- “Israel and the Trillion-Dollar 2005-2018 US Intelligence Budget” (Antiwar.com)
- Zero Days
- Snowden’s ‘Black Budget’ Leaks
- Iran–Contra affair
- The Shadow Factory: The NSA from 9/11 to the Eavesdropping on America
- “The Israel Lobby in the U.S.” (YouTube)
Grant F. Smith is the author of a number of books including “Big Israel: How Israel’s Lobby Moves America” and “Divert!”. He is director of the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy in Washington, D.C.
