We’re simply in commentary mode. ” certain sufficient, Mike from the CIA Tel Aviv station provided himself on the assembly. He was once deferential and didn’t say a notice, yet he yes took loads of notes. The FBI fogeys neglected him as though he wasn’t there. I marvelled at how chilly and hostile their courting was once. It was once relatively ironic as a result, as Watson had served the former 12 months as deputy head of the CIA’s Counterterrorism middle. after we set out to company, Watson shocked everybody by way of saying he didn’t want our testimony. The FBI, he advised us, used to be going to release a sting operation in live performance with U. S. Customs.

Now fifty-three years outdated, he had the gruff yet pleasant demeanor of a native-born Israeli, and the terse conversing demeanour of an army veteran. every person seemed him as a man’s guy. The ISA’s rank and dossier loved him. regardless of being at the brief part, Ayalon was once an intimidating presence. He was once bald and good muscled. One look instructed you he was once difficult as nails. certainly one of my place of work buddies instructed me he may see Ayalon swim a couple of miles within the Tel Aviv college pool after which do countless numbers of push-ups and sit-ups within the dust and dirt open air the building—even on wet days—as if he have been again in boot camp. That’s old-school tricky. while I brought myself, he essentially overwhelmed my hand and appeared me up and down. i may inform what he used to be considering: here’s one other wimpy, foreign-born Mossad aristocrat. Watson and the admiral in short mentioned matters concerning cooperation among their companies. I courteously waited until eventually the assembly concluded, then I back Watson to his lodge, the place we exchanged parting pleasantries.
