NSA shares … Americans’ data with Israel

jonathan pollard was sentenced, in 1987, to life in prison for spying against the united states for israel. “Lawrence Franklin, a former Defense Department employee, has pleaded guilty to several espionage-related charges and was sentenced in January 2006 to nearly thirteen years of prison…” for leaking US secrets to israel through “the powerful American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).” [quotes from the wikipedia article on the aipac affair.] so query me this: why is there a memorandum of understanding between our countries that allows israeli intelligence unfettered access to any and all information the NSA gathers on anyone and everyone in the united states??(except the government -itself- of course!)
