Former Military Intelligence chief Amos Yadlin dismissed the allegations that appeared in the Newsweek report, telling Channel 2 on Saturday that they were baseless.
"Israel is certainly not spying in the United States," Yadlin said. "This is a former Military Intelligence head telling you this. If you bring all of the past Military Intelligence chiefs from the past 29 years, since the of [the arrest of Jonathan] Pollard, or the past heads of the Mossad, they will tell you the same," Yadlin stated.
Yadlin said he expects the heads of the US intelligence community to address the American public in response to the Newsweek report, and to "either say that this is baseless, or present facts."
