See Israeli spooks in action

This is how it is done...
Training methods exposed as Shin Bet opens top secret archive
 By Yuval Azoulay, Haaretz Correspondent  
Israel's secret service revealed its training methods from the fledgling days of the Shin Bet security service in live footage now available on the organization's new internet website, launched recently.
Tired of being associated with dark cellars and covert operations, the Shin Bet security service has decided to expose to the public its previously top secret history, as well as security-related material that should not justifiably remain confidential.
The Shin Bet has had an active website for several years, which has been used primarily to recruit new employees. The site was updated periodically in accordance with the needs of the organization, but it failed to satisfy the public's curiosity.
Since Yuval Diskin was appointed the director of the Shin Bet in 2005, a decision to make available to the public any information that does not endanger Israel's security has been fast tracked.
"After so many years, we have a history and we should be proud of it," sources in the Shin Bet said Wednesday. "We don't conceal information about (former prime minister Yitzhak) Rabin's murder or the (bus) line 300 bombing. The objective is to reach wide audiences and to exhibit controlled openness. This is the same kind of policy utilized by similar organizations around the world."
The site includes, among other things, video footage of the security officials of the Israeli secret service from the early days of the organization, in which users can see the security officials practicing protecting VIPs while driving antiquated Israeli-manufactured vehicles. In other footage, visitors can see live fire training and personal testimonies given by senior intelligence and field officials.
