DCRI and Shin Bet; is someone telling lies?

Well, we have all seen those films where two partners in crime are interrogated separately to see if their stories are the same. Of course, if those stories are not the same it is generally deduced that at least one of the suspects is telling big fibs. Anyway, how about these two different reports in ‘Haaretz’ today? In one of the reports Bernard Squarcini, the Head of the French intelligence agency DCRI tells ‘Le Monde’ that Mohamed Merah, ” was arrested by Israel Police in Jerusalem in 2010, after he was found in possession of a knife,” and in the other report, we can read that “the Shin Bet investigation could not confirm a claim by the French intelligence that Merah was arrested in Israel with a knife.”

That is right, France’s DCRI apparently knows about something concerning a French Arab who entered Israel over the Allenby Bridge from Jordan in September 2010 and was “investigated by the Shin Bet.” Something that the Shin Bet doesn’t even know. Of course, with a little-known extremist group claiming responsibility  for the shootings, saying they were in response to what it called “Israel’s crimes” against the Palestinians“, they want to get this story right. However, as the evidence would appear to suggest we already have at least either the French government or the Israeli government telling lies ….. what was that? Yes, and who knows, maybe even both! After all, that would hardly be unusual, would it?

There are a lot of poor bastards out there being used and abused; it is just not cricket "old bean". Something tells me that ignorance is not bliss, but is, in fact, simply ignorance and in the global village we cannot look the other way.
