Israelis in Kurdistan

Laura Rozen has an article following up on reports, including one from Seymour Hersh, about Israeli activity in the Kurdish area of Iraq, possibly aimed at causing unrest among Kurds in Iran: Kurdistan's Cover Back-Channels Mother Jones 04/11/07.

She wasn't able to confirm the stories about Israeli military activity aimed at Iran. But she's added more details to the story, in this article reporting on the activities in Kurdistan of an Israeli businessman named Shlomi Michaels. It's also just a good read about an intriguing mystery still not fully solved. The subtitle of the article is, "How an ex-Mossad chief, a German uberspy, and a gaggle of top-dollar GOP lobbyists helped Kurdistan snag 15 tons of $100 bills".
