October 13, 2023

“‘We’re not quite sure how we missed it. We’re not quite sure how Israel missed it.’”That’s U.S. Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul addressing the weekend Hamas attack on Israel and the failure of U.S. and Israeli intelligence to anticipate the attack. “We know that Egypt had warned the Israelis three days prior that an event like this could happen,” McCaul, a Republican from Texas, said. “We know that this has been planned, perhaps as long as a year ago.”
