#3 Apparently, the intent of the operation was to determine if and how money flows into terrorist operations. If there's anything worth faulting, it's that the operation could not be maintained over a longer period of time so that more data could be gathered and analyzed.

#5 From the AP article:

Ellen testified the operation ended abruptly in early 1999 when he and Williams had a series of disagreements over the operation, disputes that began when Ellen angered the FBI by having an affair with a Chinese woman suspected of espionage.

What is it with Chinese women spies?!!

#7 Oh god, it's that Phoenix office again. They are under investigation for agents setting up their own companies and doing business with China and the Middle East.

#8 Not that surprised by the allegation that Clinton gave money to hamas. Since we are on this topic, could someone enlighten me as to the the other allegation that Israel suported Hamas in the 70s and 80s, mainly to counterbalance Arafat's PLO and provide an alternative to the Palestinians. Have only seen some references to it, and please a balanced response would be appreciated.

#9 It's true to an extent, but Hamas in the 70's and 80's was just the local branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. They were generally peaceful, although Islamist obviously, and were opposed to the PLO and the leftist elements within it.
It wasn't until the outbreak of the first Intifada in the late 80's that the Muslim Brotherhood decided that the time was right to begin using violence, and thus Hamas began initially attacking Palestinian 'collaborators' and Israeli soldiers. This was before Oslo was signed with the PLO.
