Former U.S. spy agency contractor Edward Snowden has more secrets to reveal that relate to Israel, announced, Glenn Greenwald, the journalist who first brought his leaks to the world's attention, reports Reuters from Jerusalem and aired on NBC News this morning.
Snowden is releasing more allegations that in 2009 the U.S. and Great Britain had a list of emails from as belonging to then-Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and monitored emails of senior defense officials.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that he would have the matter investigated and expressed that there are certain actions that must not be done between allies.
Glenn Greenwald, who as a writer for Britain's Guardian met face-to-face with the fugitive Snowden and has written or co-authored many of the newspaper's stories based on his material, related in an interview on Israeli television that there was more to tell, specifically about Israel.
‘Yes. I don't want to preview any stories that aren't yet published, but it is definitely the case that there are a huge number of very significant stories that are left to report,’ said the Brazil-based Greenwald, speaking to Channel Ten TV by video link.
Last month, several Israeli cabinet members and lawmakers said news of U.S. spying on Israel was an opportunity to press Washington to free jailed Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard.
Pollard, a former U.S. Navy intelligence analyst, was sentenced to a life term in 1987 in the United States for spying for Israel.
Greenwald hinted that because of the magnitude of documents Snowden had taken from the NSA last year, leaks would continue to be released.
‘I think you are absolutely right to contrast the Jonathan Pollard case with revelations of American spying on their closest allies within the Israeli government, because it does underlie, underscore exactly the hypocrisy that lies at the center of so much of what the U.S. government does,’ Greenwald stated in the interview.
