Whenever I read a book, I ask tell me something I don’t know. Well, I did not know that the Mossad was taping Bill Clinton’s phone sex with Monica Lewinsky!
Danny Yatom, the head of the Mossad, sent a spy team in March, 1997, to Washington D.C. based on reports “that President Clinton was repeatedly indulging in phone-sex calls with a former White House aide, Monica Lewinsky … Knowing the White House was totally protected by electronic counter-measures, the yahalomin team focused on Lewinsky’s apartment. They began to intercept explicit phone calls from the president to Lewinsky. The recordings were couriered by diplomatic bag to Tel Aviv.”
Created in 1951 to ensure the future of an embattled Israel, the Mossad has been responsible for the most audacious and thrilling feats of espionage, counter terrorism, and assassination ever ventured. For the first time ever, resulting from closed-door interviews between the author and Mossad agents, informants, and spymasters, as well as classified documents and top-secret sources, the truth about the Mossad is about to be revealed. From the Mossad agent in the Clinton White House who enabled Israel to call the shots in the ongoing Middle East peace process to the nuclear secrets smuggled out of the U.S. and used to jump-start Israel’s own atomic weapons program, Gideon’s Spies reveals the Mossad as it truly is: brilliant, ruthless, flawed, but ultimately awesome.
