“We’ve assisted them under two conditions,” [Defense Minister Moshe] Ya’alon said of the Israeli medical aid to the Syrian rebels, some of whom are presumably fighting with al-Qaeda affiliate al-Nusra Front to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad. “That they don’t get too close to the border, and that they don’t touch the Druze.”

The second condition however is not being kept, hence this Druze vigilante action against IDF medics treating al Nusra fighters…

Spook news…

Wayne Madsen ReportJune 29-30, 2015 — Exotic assassination methods worry foreign leaders – citing NSA doc: “Medical Pattern of Life. Targeting High Value Individual #1” found at Cryptome. Excerpts:

It is one thing for the National Security Agency and its foreign partners to eavesdrop on the phone calls and email exchanges of various world leaders. However, publicly-disclosed classified NSA material on how the agency and its partners are increasingly intercepting on-line medical data and even the shipments of pharmaceuticals and medical equipment to bring about political assassinations from seemingly “natural causes” has piqued the concerns of many security services around the world.

NSA’s collection of medical intelligence or “MEDINT” on targeted individuals, data that includes medications and their dosages, medical test results, DNA prints, medical equipment such as dialysis machines, and wireless tele-medicine components, coupled with the use of pharmaceutical “honey pots” relied on to deliver fatal dosages of drugs to victims means that the NSA is no longer merely in the surveillance business but also “wet affairs,” that is political assassinations.

Because of NSA’s involvement with the Central Intelligence Agency in exotic means of assassinating political leaders by medical means, Russian President Vladimir Putin employed food tasters to test his food prepared for him by the Brisbane Hilton Hotel during the G20 summit in that city last November. Putin and his security entourage feared that the U.S. and the Tony Abbott government in Australia may have tried to poison Putin’s food during his abbreviated two-day stay at the G20 conclave…

As more and more information is leaked about U.S. involvement in medical assassination programs, world leaders are justifiably increasing their security protection. Many of these leaders may also forgo availing themselves of the food and drink at luncheons and dinners served at the White House. If the CIA’s and NSA’s medical assassination teams have managed to penetrate the White House service staff only the White House executive chef may have been aware of any problems in food serving protocols and VIP security provided by the Secret Service, an agency that has experienced more than its share of security lapses. The White House executive chef who served Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, Walter Scheib, was recently found dead in a river near the Yerba Canyon hiking trail near Taos, New Mexico. What “cooking secrets” of the CIA — not the Culinary Institute of America but the Central Intelligence Agency — could Scheib have taken with him to his grave?
