Sri Ben-Menashe spent more than a decade in the innermost circles of Israeli intelligence. He was privy to the secret negotiations with the Iranians to delay the release of the American hostages until after the election of Ronald Reagan. He enlisted Robert Gates in the transfer of the $52 million payoff to Iran. He was Robert Maxwell's handler. Ben-Menashe brokered secret Israeli arms sales on four continents. He briefed George Bush on the vast arms network. He saw Israel's own nuclear arsenal develop, & watched his masters sponsor monstrous terrorist acts in the name of a higher good. Then, as he questioned the immorality around him, he was cut off & set up. He spent nearly a year in a U.S. jail on trumped-up charges, before he was acquitted--by proving that both Israel & the United States knew what he had been doing & had authorized it. This is the full story, as up-to-date as today's headlines, of the man who paid off the Iranians for the hostages, & who oversaw the accumulation of hundreds of millions of dollars in CIA & Israeli intelligence slush funds.
