Dear Friend,

The Turkish government wants the two Nordic nations to extradite these individuals to Turkey.

The real crime, one that represents a serious breach of the long-standing intelligence-sharing arrangements between the US and Israel, is that one of President Joe Biden’s senior officials has been willing to betray the trust of such a close ally.
