Salon Premium has a long piece today on the Israeli art student scandal that has been discussed here and there since 9/11. The story comes with quotes from all sorts of unnamed government officials, warnings to the writer to drop the story, and a CIA source code named “Stability.” Unfortunately, while it is known that a large number of young Israelis posing as art students selling art have been snooping around federal facilities, including some secret federal facilities, nobody really knows what they were doing. It’s sort of silly to jump to any sort of conclusions, but the facts that are in evidence certainly bear further investigation.
