Mossad fuckup revealed

Palestinian gunmen killed 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympics

The BBC reports that papers released from the Naional Archives in London reveal that Mossad screwed up a political murder 30 years ago. An excerpt:

Papers released at the National Archives in London have revealed the details of a political murder by Israeli secret services 30 years ago.

A Moroccan catering worker was killed in Lillehammer, Norway, by two Israelis who had got out of a car beside him.

They thought they were killing Ali Hassan Salame, the Palestinian behind the killing of 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics.

Secret papers from 1974 reveal how the Israelis killed the wrong man.

The papers have just been released by the UK Foreign Office.

The man who was killed, Ahmed Bouchikhi, had been living in Lillehammer for nine years and his wife, Torill Larsen, a local woman, was expecting their child.

It continues to make me sick how Mossad can continue to get away with these acts. If any other country did the same thing and it was made public there would be a public outroar.
