Gideon's Spies: The Secret History of the Mossad

Gordon Thomas



Created in 1951 to ensure an embattled Israel's future, the Mossad has been responsible for the most audacious and thrilling feats of espionage, counterterrorism, and assassination ever ventured. Gordon Thomas's 1999 publication of Gideon's Spies, resulting from closed-door interviews with Mossad agents, informants, and spymasters, and drawing from classified documents and top-secret sources, revealed previously untold truths about the Israeli intelligence agency. And now, in this fourth edition, Thomas updates his classic text and shows a Mossad as it has historically been: brilliant, ruthless, and flawed, but ultimately awesome.

Six all-new chapters and updated appendices and glossaries examine:

*The London bombings: the untold full story of Mossad's involvement

*Mossad's key role in the G8 Summit in Scotland

*How Mossad discovered that by June 2005 Al Qaeda had acquired fissionable material from Pakistan and former Soviet Union Islamic Republics

*Secret phone calls to Washington that led to Tony Blair changing his position over war with Iraq

*WMD and Libya, North Korea, Iran, Pakistan, China, and the House of Saud

*The mega spy in the Bush and Clinton administrations

*The PLO, Fatah, and Hamas

* The technology wars, and North Korea's bird-flu war games and "ethnic bombs"

*The Chinese involvement in the Los Alamos fiasco
