Jerusalem Post
quote:
The Israelis are also providing an ancillary role to the Kurds and, according to Hersh, are aiding Kurdish elements in northern Syria. Kurdish riots and the seeds of a minor rebellion in northern Syria in recent weeks have rocked Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime.

Israel has become increasingly pessimistic about the chances of a stable government forming in Iraq, and has thus moved on to "stage B" of its post-war campaign, establishing what amount to mini-intelligence stations, Hersh said.

Did Israelis work as interrogators in Iraq?

quote:
The US officer at the heart of the Abu Ghraib prison scandal says she has evidence that Israelis helped to interrogate Iraqis at another facility.

Brig Gen Janis Karpinski told the BBC she met an Israeli working as an interrogator at a secret intelligence centre in Baghdad.

Of course Mossad is in Kurdistan. Israel has always been supportive fo th Kurdish nationalist movement in Iraq. Tis because Saddam was the last staunchley anti-Israeli Arab leader.

Haven't we been hearing these rumours from the beginning? I've just been assuming, anyway, that the Americans took Israeli military and Mossad advisers both in with them during the invasion. I mean -- those are the experts, eh?

Apparently.

Israeli interrogators in Iraq - An exclusive report

quote:
At least one aspect of the occupation of Iraq was well planned by Washington. The USA needed help conducting mass interrogations of Arabic-speaking detainees. Foreign Report can now reveal that, to make up for this shortfall, the USA employed Israeli security service (Shin Bet) experts to help their US counterparts 'break' their captives.

[snip]

Foreign Report has learnt that top Shin Bet interrogation experts were sent to Iraq to help with the most difficult interrogations, such as the captured heads of the Iraqi intelligence - and perhaps with former president Saddam Hussein. US sources say that in spite of the incidences of abuse in Abu Ghraib prison, such events are not representative of the sophisticated methods that Shin Bet used in Iraq.


There's more at the link, but the bulk of the article is behind Jane's subscription wall.

Sure. But then there is also the host of less official operatives, whom operate as university researchers (developing policy,) aid workers (developing local assets,) and in other assorted civilian capacities.
