Description

Wikileaks has released a US diplomatic cables that shows how the US Government has indeed assisted the United Arab Emirate in the investigation into the assassination of Hammas leader Mahmud al-Mabhouh in Dubai. At the beginning of the year, al-Mabhouh was killed by a group believed to have been agents for the Israeli secret service, the Mossad. A cable sent from the embassy in Dubai less than a month after the assassination reveals that senior U.A.E. officials asked the American ambassador and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to probe urgently "cardholder details and related information for credit cards reportedly issued by a U.S. bank to several suspects" in the murder. Proving US assistance shows that harm was not caused by US government to the investigation thus washing its hands of possibly being accused of supporting Israel in the assassination.
