And yet, much like the old story of the frog and the scorpion, the IDF seems amazed to learn of the possibility that a radical leftist would betray them so openly.
Via Arutz Sheva:
A top secret case involving national security that was long kept under wraps by the IDF censor but was published in the international media was finally authorized for publication this morning. It involved the theft of 2,000 secret IDF documents by a former soldier who worked as a journalist for the left-leaning Hebrew language news website Walla.
Some details still remain classified, as the investigation by police, Shabak (Israel Security Agency) and IDF Information Security Department continues.
Despite protests by the Israeli media over the past several days, the State Prosecution insisted that the investigation remain under a gag order, for two reasons: To exhaust all possibilities of recovering the documents, and in order to prevent interference with the ongoing investigation of what appear to be the very grave crimes committed in this case. Finally, under pressure from Israel Press Council Chairperson and former Supreme Court Justice Dalia Dorner and others, and in light of developments in the case, the Prosecution has given in and withdrawn its demand for secrecy.
I'm struck (but not surprised in the least) to see how eager all of the other "journalists" are to gain access to this massive pile of secret documents.
They are scorpions, after all.
