Ariel Wattenberg is looking at the information Allison sent him as well as the photographs she sent over. Yes, these are the two men that were hit. If this was any other circumstance, he would be totally honest with her. He knows what happened may have been on United States soil but it was vital to Israel’s security. This time he will wait a couple of days so when he calls her back it appears the Mossad had to do some digging to get the information she requested.
The Mossad knew exactly when the Hezbollah agent left Lebanon and when the Hamas agent left Gaza. They knew how they traveled and where and how they entered Mexico and later into the United States. He knows he cannot give her too much information because she will realize they have files on the two men. She will also realize how good their network is. It must be in bits and pieces over a period of time.
Ariel lifts his phone and connects with Yosef. “Yosef has the seed we planted to leak in Austin been accomplished?”
“Yes, our people dropped hints two days after the explosion that the Saudis may have hit the agents in retaliation for Iran attempting to assassinate the Saudi ambassador in Washington last year. The word put out was they hired an assassin to do the job.”
“Do you think it will work?”
“I’ll lay you odds that rumor has already been passed into Iran and into Saudi Arabia already.”
