Secrets? What Secrets?

Maybe it's because I've read too many spy novels while on business trips, but when I read in the newspaper the other day that Meir Dagan, the former head of the Mossad had undergone a liver transplant in Belarus... well, it kinda made my Spidey sense tingle.

Obviously I wish Mr. Dagan a full and speedy recovery, and admit that anyone should be entitled to seek medical treatment anywhere he/she feels it will be provided quickest and with maximum efficacy (not always the same thing... but given how many people die waiting for organ transplants, I won't quibble).

But I have to wonder how it is possible that the former head of one of the foremost spy agencies in the world - a man who quite literally knows where the bodies are buried, as well as who buried them there - was allowed to be placed under general anesthesia in a foreign country?

I'm just saying...

Wouldn't be surprised if Lukashenko tries to blackmail Israel about Dagan's security. Looks like an OPSEC clusterfucX.

He probably has a few security folks with him.

If the donated Liver was available in Belarus,why couldn`t it have been securely transported to Israel and the surgery done there? Hope he will soon be back safely in Israel.
