Thomas Reveals Mossad's
Role In Lewinsky Affair

Gordon Thomas discloses Mossad's role in the "Monica Lewinsky" scandal
Monica Lewinsky may have been a Mossad agent. It appears that Mossad's information on the affair was leaked to the media, to block Clinton's attempts to impose a Peace Settlement on Israel.
The Mossad-Likud blackmailing of Clinton is an example of the clash between two conspiracies: the Socialist one (of Clinton and the EU) and the Tory-Zionist one promoting the current war in Iraq.

(p. 92) Only the incumbent Mossad memune knew how long Mega had been in place.
The committee members did, however, know that the FBI's counterintelligence division finally believed that the lack of action against Mossad was due to the power of the Jewish lobby in Washington, and the reluctance of successive administrations to confront it. Once more that lobby could be called upon to dampen the firestorm building since Mega had first been discovered by the FBI. On February 16, 1997, the National Security Agency (NSA) had provided the FBI with an intercept of a late-night telephone conversation from the Israeli embassy between a Mossad intelligence officer identified only as Dov, and his superior in Tel Aviv, whose name had not been revealed during the short conversation.
Dov had asked "for guidance" as to whether he "should go to Mega" for a copy of a letter written by Warren Christopher, then secretary of state, to PLO chairman Yasser Arafat. The letter contained a set of assurances given to Arafat by Christopher on January 16 about the withdrawal of Israeli troops from the West Bank city of Hebron. Dov was instructed by the voice in Tel Aviv "to forget the letter. This is not something we use Mega for."
The brief conversation had been the first clue the FBI had of the importance of Mega. ...
{p. 93} In March 1997, on receipt of information from Mossad's katsa in Washington, Yatom took action. He send a yahalomin team to Washington to follow-up on the katsaÕs report that President Clinton was repeatedly inlulging in phone-sex calls with a a former White House
{p. 94} aide, Monica Lewinsky. He was making the calls from the oval Office to her apartment in the Watergate complex. Knowing that the White House was totally protected by electronic counter-measures, the yahalomin team focused on Lewinsky's apartment. They began to intercept explicit phone calls from the president to Lewinsky. The recordings were couriered by diplomatic bag to Tel Aviv.
On March 27, Clinton once more invited Lewinsky to the Oval Office and revealed he believed a foreign embassy was taping their conversations. He did not give her any more details, but shortly afterwards the affair ended.
In Tel Aviv, Mossad's strategies pondered how to use the highly embarrassing taped conversations; they were the stuff of blackmail - though no one suggested any attempt should be made to blackmail the president of the United States. Some, however, saw the recordings as a potent weapon to be used if Israel found itself with its back to the wall in the Middle East and unable to count on Clinton's support.
There was common consensus that the FBI must also be aware of the conversations between Clinton and Lewinsky. Some strategists urged Yatom to use "the back-door channel" with Washington and let the FBI know Mossad was aware of the president's phone calls: it would be a not-very-subtle way of telling the agency to back off in their continuing hunt for Mega. Other analysts urged a wait- and-see policy, arguing that the information would remain explosive whenever it was released. That view prevailed.
In September 1998, the Starr report was published and Yatom had left offfice. The report contained a short reference to Clinton warning Lewinsky back in March 1997 that his phone was being bugged by a foreign embassy. Starr had not pursued the matter when Lewinsky had given her testimony before the grand jury about her affair with Clinton. However, the FBI could only have seen the revelations as further evidence of their inability to unmask Mega.
According to at least one well-placed Israeli intelligence source, Rafi Eitan had received a phone call from Yatom reinforcing the need to stay well clear of the United States for the foreseeable future.
