New Axis of Evil: Egypt’s Intelligence Head Met with Iranian Spy
Recent secret meeting between the head of Egyptian intelligence and an Iranian spy is new evidence of Cairo’s joining the ‘axis of evil.’
A recent secret meeting between the head of Egyptian intelligence and a senior Iranian spy offers new evidence of Cairo’s Muslim Brotherhood government having joined the “axis of evil.”
Murad Muwafi, head of the Egyptian General Intelligence Service, met in early August with a senior official of Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security, investigative journalist Bill Gertz wrote in the Washington Free Beacon Tuesday night.
He noted that the Obama administration continues to maintain close ties with Egypt, its major ally in the Middle East after Israel, and plans to offer the new government an additional $1 billion in aid.
Muwafi met with an Iranian spy was identified only by his last name, Gerami, setting off security concerns “because the Iranian spy service is a key player in Tehran’s international support for terrorism, as well as anti-U.S. and anti-Israel operations,” Gertz wrote.
