The Paradox of the Leeches

"The Big Question: When Did The NSA Know About Heartbleed?" "Wild at Heart: Were Intelligence Agencies Using Heartbleed in November 2013?" The only reason the NSA gets away with its outrages - besides the obvious blackmailing of politicians and 'journalists' - is that it is supposed to be protecting Americans, yet it saw a good chance for more snooping and kept quiet thus participating in exposing Americans and everybody else to serious economic and security dangers.

The Paradox of the Leeches:  "B-52s and MOPs for Israel? - by Confused Ponderer":
"Let's put this in clear language: The advocates of such equipment transfers want that the US should put Israel in a position in which it can flout US policy preferences by making them independent strategically by giving Israel a conventional stategic strike option.The desire to do this demonstrates Israel's current inability to successfully hit Iran.

This is the same idea promoted in 'A Clean Break', which notably stressed the idea that Israel ought to transform its relations with the United States, by making Israel self-reliant, i.e. independent from the US. Now that's an ally!  These people want the US to make Israel independent, so that the Israelis can ignore whatever the US wants them to do and and at the same time they want the US taxpayer to foot the bill!

The tail is indeed wagging the dog. And re: 'A Clean Break' - the other major idea in that paper is that Israel, rather than pursuing a "comprehensive peace" with the entire Arab world, Israel should work jointly with Jordan (though nowadays it looks they are rather more allied with the Saudis) and Turkey to "contain, destabilize, and roll-back" those entities that are threats to all three. Which goes a long way to explain the current enthusiasm and persistent scheming to have the US to bomb Syria to smithereens already. And then Lebanon. And then Iran. Is there a cure for this lunacy?"
