WASHINGTON — Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called any American spying on his government was unacceptable and was not something allies should ever do to each other.
Reuters reported that U.S. National Security Agency leaker and current exile Edward Snowden leaked documents to the media, detailing how the British and American intelligence agencies spied on then-Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s e-mail and those of top defense officials.
Netanyahu said, “With regard to things published in the past few days, I have asked for an examination of the matter…In the close ties between Israel and the United States, there are things that must not be done and that are not acceptable to us”.
This is another development that adds to the list of U.S. President Barack Obama’s woes, such as his flawed health care law and its implementation, dropping job approval rating and the exposure of American spying on allies and citizens alike.
