[The author of the following has captured the duplicity of US diplomacy, which has been highlighted by the leaks--public diplomacy--vs--military reality. That seems to be the diplomats' only function these days, to lie to the public about US military intentions and actions. That is what you have when you have an aggressive militarist state disguising itself as a "champion of human rights." By the time the US military policies are carried-0ut in the world there will be very little of this dinosaur known as "human rights" left over.]
“Secret diplomacy is a necessary tool for a propertied minority, which is compelled to deceive the majority in order to subject it to its interests. Imperialism, with its dark plans of conquest and its robber alliances and deals, developed the system of secret diplomacy to the highest level.”http://www.frontline.in/stories/20101231272600400.htm
The U.S. intelligence blowback against strongly suspected Israeli involvement in the leaking of hundreds of thousands of classified State Department cables that paint Israel in a good light while tarnishing leaders around the world continues with revelations from U.S. intelligence sources that China was able to launch an intercontinental ballistic missile off the coast of Los Angeles on November 8 thanks to classified U.S. Navy missile and submarine technology stolen by Israeli intelligence agents involved in a top secret National Security Agency (NSA) joint project in the 1980s. Israel subsequently passed the data on to the Chinese in return for lucrative defense contracts for Israeli companies with the Chinese People's Liberation Army.
The Israeli espionage operation was previously reported by WMR: ". . . more news about the non-reported Israeli penetration of the NSA and U.S. Navy in the 1980s has been revealed by NSA insiders. Veterans of the RCA-NSA-Israeli joint SIGINT program code named DINDI report that Israeli engineer spies used the carve out contract with NSA, through RCA, to gain access to NSA and U.S. Navy secrets. In an RCA facility in Mount Laurel, NJ, the Israeli engineers had their own secured lab, and for three years that DINDI ran, they were walking out with their briefcases loaded with equipment, including scopes. When RCA engineers finally gained access to their lab, they found the prints laid out for the Trident missile system. RCA had an ongoing contract top develop the Trident communications suite at the time of the security leak. The Israeli engineers on DINDI claimed they were from the Israeli Air Force but months later, an RCA engineer was in New York and he ran into the same Israelis, but they were wearing Israeli Navy uniforms. One ex-RCA engineer commented about the DINDI Israeli spies: "They were all a nice bunch of guys, even when they had their hands in your pockets."
Mossad targeted RCA to obtain Trident missile design information passed to the Chinese.
WMR provided further details on the Israeli operation in a June 1, 2005 report: "In the 1980s, against the wishes of NSA, the Reagan administration forced NSA to permit RCA, one of its major contractors, to develop a tethered aerostat (balloon) signals intelligence and direction finding system for the Israeli Defense Force. According to NSA officials, the Israeli-NSA joint project, codenamed DINDI, was established at a separate facility in Mount Laurel, New Jersey and apart from the main NSA developmental center at RCA's facility in Camden, New Jersey. Although NSA and RCA set up a strict firewall between the contractor's national intelligence contract work and the separate DINDI contract, Israeli engineers, who were working for Mossad, soon broke down the security firewall with the assistance of a few American Jewish engineers assigned to the DINDI project. The security breach resulted in a number of national intelligence developmental [signals intelligence] systems being compromised to the Israelis, including those code named PIEREX, MAROON ARCHER, and MAROON SHIELD. DINDI was quickly cancelled but due to the sensitivity surrounding the American Jewish engineers, the Reagan Justice Department avoided bringing espionage charges. There were some forced retirements and transfers, but little more. But for NSA, the duplicity of the Israelis added to the enmity between Fort Meade and Israeli intelligence." The bitterness of NSA toward Israel stemmed from the unprovoked and pre-meditated Israeli attack on the NSA ship, USS Liberty, during the 1967 Arab-Israeli war, which killed and wounded a number of U.S. Navy sailors and NSA personnel.
The Israeli espionage operations against primarily U.S. Navy secrets was aided by long-term New Jersey 3rd congressional district Republican Representative Jim Saxton. Saxton, who served on the House Armed Services Committee, ensured that his district's defense contractors, including RCA, received lucrative defense and intelligence contracts. Sensitive intelligence was then available for the taking by the large Mossad contingent that embedded itself in a major center for Saxton political and financial support, Cherry Hill, which has a large Jewish population. In return, Saxton received large donations from the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. In fact, Israeli intelligence culling of RCA secrets began as early as the 1960s when Israeli agents routinely received data on a major RCA project, the Ballistic Missile Early Warning System (BMEWS).
Good evening Los Angeles! From Israel with love.
Trident D-5 submarine launch
The Julang 2 ICBM, which is also known as JL-2 and CSS-N-4 Giant Wave, fired off the coast of Los Angeles last month is based on Trident II D-5 research and development missile technology ferreted out by Israeli spies working on DINDI in the mid-1980s and subsequently transferred to China. The Obama administration clamped a tight lid on the Chinese launch because of its ramifications for U.S.-Israeli relations, WMR is told. It is not the first time that Israel has provided classified information to U.S. adversaries. Much of the U.S. intelligence stolen by U.S. Navy Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard in the 1980s was subsequently transferred by Israel to the Soviet Union, in return for Moscow's agreement to allow greater numbers of Soviet Jews to emigrate to Israel.
