    Intelligence about ISIS that US President Donald Trump allegedly leaked to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak during an Oval Office meeting last Wednesday was sourced by Jordanian spies, not Israelis, Al Jazeera reported on Thursday morning.

    According to the report, "veteran Jordanian intelligence officials" claimed that the numerous media reports that the information Trump disclosed to the Russians originally came from Israel are false. Speaking to Al Jazeera anonymously, the Jordanian officials said that they "don't believe Israel has any high level spies" inside ISIS.

    One source told Al Jazeera that when it comes to ISIS, "Unlike Jordan, Israel relies on its electronic surveillance collection and its intelligence-sharing arrangement with its Arab partners." They also said that Jordan, on the contrary, relies on human spies on the ground who infiltrate groups like ISIS. US President Donald Trump and Jordan's King Abdullah spoke by phone on Tuesday ahead of the American leader's upcoming visit to the Middle East.

    At least it wasn't Israel. It was being to feel like betrayal when they were saying Israel was the source. But, I think Trump's loose lips got the best of him. Time will tell.

    I don't have a problem with government leaders sharing information and intel about what terrorist are planning for their peoples safety as much as ours. What I have a problem with, is that it was leaked to the public that they are discussing these things and whom said it!
