Donald Trump disclosure of top secret Israeli intelligence to top Russian officials during a meeting in the Oval Office is not without repercussions. On Wednesday, Israeli Defense chief Avigdor Lieberman said his country tweaked its intelligence-sharing protocols with the United States after Trumpâ€™s off-script remarks.
â€śI can confirm that we did a spot repair and that thereâ€™s unprecedented intelligence cooperation with the United States,â€ť Lieberman told Army Radio. â€śWhat we had to clarify with our friends in the United States, we did. We did our checks,â€ť he added.
Lieberman didnâ€™t clarify how or to what extent Israel changed how it shares intelligence with the United States. But the comments indicate Israelâ€™s displeasure at Trumpâ€™s inadvertent leaks. â€śNot everything needs to be discussed in the media; some things need to be talked about in closed rooms,â€ť he said.http://foreignpolicy.com/2017/05/24/israel-changed-intelligence-sharing-with-u-s-after-trump-comments-to-russians/
