Dagan forced to return diplomatic passport

Israel's Channel 2 reports on Sunday night that former Mossad director has been forced to give up his diplomatic passport as a result of his comments regarding Israel's military options against Iran.
Dagan had requested to keep the passport because of a slate of upcoming trips he had planned outside of the country, but his request was denied, according to the report.

The diplomatic passport offers, among other benefits, diplomatic immunity.

The Prime Minister's Office said that it was normal procedure for officials to return their diplomatic passports following the conclusion of their service, and Dagan was asked to do so after failing to return the passport himself.

According to Channel Two, the step is highly unusual and other officials have been allowed to keep their passports until their expiration date has passed.
It may be highly unusual to take the passport back, but it's also highly unusual for the former director of the Mossad to turn into a yenta.

Well, I guess that means he can't go to Europe - they're all after him for forging their passports for the Mahmoud al-Mabhouh operation. Heh.

Even though Dagan specifically said he didn't know of any plans to actually conduct these operations, his words were used by the usual anti-Zionist conspiracy mongers to slag Bibi as a warmonger (why dignify them with a direct link). Jews, we are all so full of helpful advice.

No surprise Meir Dagan was a closet leftist.

But every top Israeli security establishment official in the last two decades has been one.

In the past they would have parachuted into the Labor Party. Nowadays, its Kadima.

The more things change...
