AN Israeli spy was kicked out of Australia for trying to seduce female spies, diplomats and defence specialists employed by some of the most sensitive national security agencies, security sources said yesterday.

Amir Laty, expelled on December 28, even targeted journalists in the hope of cultivating young women with access to government secrets.

"It was an attempt at high-level espionage,'' a national security source said.

Apart from Laty's friendship with Attorney-General Philip Ruddock's 26-year-old daughter Caitlin, he is also believed to have had liaisons with a woman from the Defence Intelligence Organisation and another from the Prime Minister and Cabinet Office's international policy unit.

This comes after two Israeli spys were caught buying fake passports in NZ.
Given current events in Iraq you would think that would be the focus of Israel intel afforts why bother with Aust ? It dosnt make any sense its not like Aust is a hub for secret military testing or is it?

Perhaps Israel isn't interested only in Australia's own military secrets...maybe it is interested in what Australia knows about others


International espionage is a hard game to understand if you're not a player.

F*king Israelis, leave our region alone, we WILL catch you and we WILL deport you. I speak for NZ and Aus here.

I wonder if those Israeli spies were involved in the Hariri bombing in Lebanon:


theaustralian.news.com.au
LEBANON is hunting six people who flew from Beirut for Australia, leaving traces of explosives on aircraft seats, hours after a powerful bomb killed former prime minister Rafiq Hariri.

"Six people left for Australia from Beirut airport a few hours after the attack and traces of TNT powder were recovered from the seats used by some of them," Justice Minister Adnan Addum said.

Good find AceofBase!


I think the lead is a little suspect however, because professional operators usually have their own aircraft. Having a mission fail because Delta can't get their birds off the ground is unacceptable, obviously, so active teams usually utilize a rotating stock of privately owned aircraft.

Covert Ops groups also have a bit of a reputation for using odd, rare, and hard to find planes. Often aircraft manufacturers will produce a small number of a superior aircraft, or a superior model of one of their stock aircraft, and demand is too low to consider full blown production. Of course there is something to be said for a generic plane, but if a rare plane has better capabilities it would be preferable to any mission where failure must be insured against at all costs.

I think this might be a red herring, AceofBase, but one can never be sure.

Bloody Israel, they should just get lost and leave us be, our region is of no concern to them, I am always angered when Israeli spies are caught out in countries that are allies and friends to Israel. I know espionage is a dirty game but i feel it's nothing less than betrayal.

Oh and have you seen ruddocks daughter?? she's fine!
i'd give her one too, I hope Ruddock doesn't deport me


thanks,
drfunk

The first test for explosives residue by the Australian authorities has proven negative. Perhaps it was a red herring.

The Lebanese investigation has gone as far as Australia. Justice Minister Addoum asked Australian police to investigate 10 men who left Beirut the day of the bombing after he said traces of TNT were on two passenger seats.

An Australian Federal Police spokesman said initial tests were negative. Australian police were waiting for a second round of test results today.

No, that's absolutely incorrect. It attracts too much attention.

Maybe he was just desparate for a root?
Can't blame the guy really, what's worse is his replacement was known to have been photographed with very underage girls in Brazil!

Israel probably just wanted to verify some information, after all the US could be teling them a lot but leaving out some info or telling someone else something different. They probably wanted to make sure. Anyway seduction is one of the age old ways of gather information, it happened a lot on the cold war as well, I think it was the CIA who got a young attractive male to seduce a Russian guy who was gay then took photos and used it as blackmail (or was it the other way around? can't remember).
