A document leaked by Edward Snowden reveals that the NSA has an agreement to provide Israel with intercepted communications without redacting details about U.S. persons.
A "memorandum of understanding" between the NSA and Israel's SIGINT National Unit (ISNU) — leaked to the Guardian by Edward Snowden — details how the NSA hands over the raw data of intercepted communications to Israel without it being "minimized" — that is, with information about U.S. persons intact.
"This agreement is not intended to create any legally enforceable rights and shall not be construed to be either an international agreement or a legally binding instrument according to international law." Memorandum of Understanding
"We are investing in target surveillance and offensive CI [counterintelligence] against key targets, such as China, Russia, Iran, Israel, Pakistan and Cuba." from the so-called "black budget"

When asked about Israel's call to release spy Jonathan Pollard from U.S. jails he said the case showed "the hypocrisy that lies at the center of so much of what the U.S. government does."
