A Fox news series in the wake of 9/11 reported that Israel is “spying in and on the US”, and that “since September 11th more than 60 Israelis have been arrested or detained.”
In a four-part series which was later removed from air and deleted from Fox’s archives, the report states that Israeli spies, some posing as art students, “targeted and penetrated FBI, DEA, other secret offices and private homes of law enforcement officers.”
The spies were captured and failed polygraph tests when asked about the events of 9/11. Upon investigating this, Fox reporters were told: “Evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified.” One group of Israelis, possibly working for the Mossad espionage agency, had set themselves up in a house in California, where they were suspected of spying on a group of Arabs.
While the report admits that this is not conclusive proof that Israeli forces were responsible for 9/11, there is strong evidence to suggest that they were “gathering information about the attacks in advance, and not sharing it.”
Fox news had access to classified documents that showed over 140 Israelis had been detained or arrested prior to the attacks “in a secretive and sprawling investigation into espionage by Israelis in the United States.”
