Fox News Special Report.
Part One. BRIT HUME, HOST: It has been more than 16 years since a civilian working for the Navy was charged with passing secrets to Israel. Jonathan Pollard pled guilty to conspiracy to commit espionage and is serving a life sentence. At first, Israeli leaders claimed Pollard was part of a rogue operation, but later took responsibility for his work. Now Fox News has learned some U.S. investigators believe that there are Israelis again very much engaged in spying in and on the U.S., who may have known things they didn’t tell us before Sept. 11.
Fox News correspondent Carl Cameron has details in the first of a four-part series. Since September 11, more than 60 Israelis have been arrested or detained, either under the new patriot anti-terrorist law, or for immigration violations. A handful of active Israeli military were among those detained, according to investigators, who say some of the detainees also failed polygraph questions when asked about alleged surveillance activities against and in the United States. Investigators suspect that the Israelis may have gathered intelligence about the attacks in advance, and not shared it. A highly placed investigator said there are ‘tie-ins’ … Numerous classified documents obtained by Fox News indicate that even prior to September 11, as many as 140 other Israelis had been detained or arrested in a secretive and sprawling investigation into suspected espionage by Israelis in the United States.”

According to Carl Cameron of Fox News — in a series of reports that have subsequently disappeared from the Fox News website — in 1997 the Israelis organized “cocaine and ecstasy trafficking, and sophisticated white-collar credit card and computer fraud… the bad guys had the cops beepers, cell phones, even home phones under surveillance. Some who did get caught admitted to having hundreds of numbers and using them to avoid arrest.”
An investigation revealed the Israeli crime network possessed “extensive access to database systems to identify pertinent personal and biographical information” of law enforcement officers. How did a network of drug dealers get this sensitive information? “When investigators tried to find out where the information might have come from, they looked at Amdocs, a publicly traded firm based in Israel,” Cameron reported. “Amdocs generates billing data for virtually every call in America, and they do credit checks.”
But it seems Amdocs was not only involved with Israeli drug dealers. “More than two dozen U.S. intelligence, counter-intelligence, law-enforcement and other officials have told Insight [magazine] that the FBI believes Israel has intercepted telephone and modem communications on some of the most sensitive lines of the U.S. government on an ongoing basis,” write J. Michael Waller and Paul Rodriguez. “The worst penetrations are believed to be in the State Department. But others say the supposedly secure telephone systems in the White House, Defense Department and Justice Department may have been compromised as well.
The problem for FBI agents in the famed Division 5, however, isn’t just what they have uncovered, which is substantial, but what they don’t know yet.” Amdocs “helped Bell Atlantic install new telephone lines in the White House in 1997… [and] a senior-level employee of Amdocs had a separate T1 data phone line installed from his base outside of St. Louis that was connected directly to Israel… investigators are looking into whether the owner of the T1 line had a ‘real time’ capacity to intercept phone calls from both the White House and other government offices around Washington, and sustained the line for some time, sources said.
Sources familiar with the investigation say FBI agents on the case sought an arrest warrant for the St. Louis employee but [Clinton] Justice Department officials quashed it.” Waller and Rodriguez quoted one senior government official as saying: “It is a politically sensitive matter. I can’t comment on it beyond telling you that anything involving Israel on this particular matter is off-limits. It’s that hot.”
