Do we ever find it surprising when an Intelligence Service has either posited a theory or taken part in active scenarios that end up occurring “RIGHT BEFORE THEY OCCUR”. I mean, planning is what they do……but all the more it seems as though as soon as they “think it” POOF ! It happens…..how about that….

Ten days ago, at a security cabinet meeting, Mossad Chief Tamir Pardo outlined a scenario spookily similar to the kidnapping of the three Israeli teens missing since Thursday night.
The meeting dealt with the report of the Shamgar Committee on prisoner exchanges and on the Habayit Hayehudi bill that prohibits granting pardons to terrorists.
Pardo, along with other defense establishment officials present, tried to convince the ministers not to advance the bill. He was against it because it would limit the government’s room for maneuver in future abduction cases, would keep its hands tied, and prevent it from considering other solutions for dealing with a potential crisis.
