Peering into Mossad on Internet

A former official in the Mossad, Israel’s external security service, has offered Internet users what he terms a look at the “dark corners” of the agency.

The official is Victor Ostrovsky, author of the controversial book, “By Way of Deception: A Devastating Insider’s Portrait of the Mossad.” Ostrovsky, who now lives in Canada, said the millions of subscribers to the international computer network can learn about the inner workings and activities of the top-agency.

The Israeli daily Ma’ariv said the curious can sample a number of topics, including the structure of the agency, recruiting methods and liaisons setups.
