FULL DISCLOSURE: One of the major benefits of being an American-Israeli investigative journalist is access to deep cover contacts within both countries – some of whom are fellow journalists, while others are counterterrorism and counterintelligence operatives. It is a rare occasion that their “droppings” haven’t borne fruit. Par for the course, there are strings attached, most of which are quid pro quo’s. Fair is fair. Pleased to oblige. Besides, said “gifts” are, more often than not, worth the heavy-lifting done on both ends.
Now, it is from this privileged (and, it is) perch that these eyes are positioned to “see from there to here” – unlike others, who may be equally discerning, but lacking in this and that bird’s eye view. Never mind those who are blind as bats due to ideological biases.
