Israel’s NSA Scandal

James Bamford: “Among his (Edward Snowden’s) most shocking discoveries, he told me, was the fact that the N.S.A. was routinely passing along the private communications of Americans to a large and very secretive Israeli military organization known as Unit 8200. This transfer of intercepts, he said, included the contents of the communications as well as metadata such as who was calling whom.”

A group of Israeli whistleblowers has shown how such mass surveillance information has been abused by the Israeli government, particularly against Palestinians. Information about Americans also gets shared. Can either of these countries — or any country — be trusted with this kind of information?
