Better at breeding terrorism

Zionists will be most displeased but it appears the US now relies on Jordanian torturers (sorry, intelligence) more than Israel's Mossad. Haaretz reports:

"Jordan's General Intelligence Directorate has become the CIA's most important and effective counter-terrorism ally in the Middle East, a standing once held by the Mossad, the Los Angeles Times reported in its Friday editions.

"The newspaper reported that Jordan and the U.S. have cooperated in the interrogation of suspected terrorists, the methods of which have been subject to widespread media criticism due to the alleged use of torture."

The "War on Terror" is going swimmingly.

The CIA probably considers Mossad harder to push around/manipulate.

Mossad is also quite capable of threatening to embarass the US by leaking information of such joint US-Israeli operations to the US media. The political fallout would hardly hurt Mossad which is usually out of favour in the US. So nothing to lose.

Also the US enjoys a propaganda victory, perhaps useful in blackmailing Jordanian security, when the US orchestrates the torture of Muslims by (Arab) Muslims.

A nasty business.

I think it's probably a political descision. If it got out that Israel were involved in this project, trh repesussions could be severe
(even among the US allies).

This cozy relationship may partially explain the recent hotel bombings..?
