Israel’s Knesset committed its second serious breach of national security in a year after posting a list of senior Shin Bet and Mossad agents on its website. Similarly, last year they posted information pertaining to Israel’s defense related technology. This is quite the faux pas for a country with one of the most vaunted intelligence services in the world.
Curiously enough, literally minutes before I read this (via the Mideasti blog) I stumbled upon a list of 100+ MI6 agents throughout the world, their postings, ranks and diplomatic placement history. Clearly, the internet is a bad thing and should be banned.
