Lebanon claims Obama spying on Israel

October 7, 2012

You might recall that one of the possible origin points for the drone that was downed over the Northern Negev desert on Saturday was Lebanon. Lebanon apparently wants no part of this. They are claiming that the drone was American and that the Israelis downed it by accident.

“The Palestinians don’t have such a sophisticated aircraft. It may have come from Egypt, however, since it flew in from the sea, I believe it came from an American aircraft carrier and was accidently downed,” said former Lebanese General Hisham Jaber a few hours after Israel shot down an unmanned aircraft that violated its aircraft.
Jaber said the drone might have been launched from an American base in Saudi Arabia, and that Israel downed it by accident.

Obama spying on Israel? Hmmm.
