  1. He should be locked up in jail for 50 years. That’s worst than shooting a terrorist and being locked up.

    These Israeli courts are lunatics

  2. Well, at least the idiot burned them, so there was no compromise of classified information.

    Wait, did he photograph them first?

  3. In the Us Military Classified Documents are never allowed to be removed from their primary premises . The higher the classification the more restrictive the viewing . If this IDF Colonel would have been in the US Military he would have been Court Martialed for dereliction of duty . I spent 38 years in uniform , had a TS SCI clearance so I know about classified documents . TS – Top Secret , SCI – Secured Compartmented Information . A need to know basis .
