"Covert" Israeli influence of Congress is getting much more international coverage than in the domestic American media. Russia Today reports on newly declassified files from the US National Archives concerning massive "lobbying" and "PR" efforts by Israel. The documents were released following a lengthy sealed Senate investigation. According to the report, the covert operation involved $36 million in payments to US journals and magazines including The Atlantic. On the video, Grant F. Smith, the head of the Washington-based Institute for Research on Middle Eastern Policy states that Israel pushes her policy objectives covertly in the US media including her current "drive" for a US military attack on Iran. The video is linked below.
