News the HP Doesn't Cover: Prisoner X Sold Secrets

This latest development on the "Prisoner X" case was published today, so it's entirely possible the Huffington Post will in fact cover it, but I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't, because the news doesn't make Israel out to be the bad guy:

"Did Australia's domestic intelligence agency question Ben Zygier about his work with the Mossad? ABC Australia reporter Trevor Bormann believes so.

A report posted on the Australian news network's website alleges that Zygier, also known as "Prisoner X," was questioned by the Australian Security Intelligence Organization about his connection to the Israeli intelligence agency. 
 It was after the ASIO interrogation that Zygier was arrested in 2010, the report said; adding that it is believed that he "told ASIO about every aspect of his work with the Israelis."
According to the report, the network's "Foreign Correspondent" program has been able to ascertain that "Zygier met with ASIO officers in Australia and gave comprehensive details about a number of Mossad operations, including plans for a top-secret mission in Italy that had been years in the making."" 
The report stressed that it is unknown whether Zygier reached out to ASIO or vice versa."

If the HP does in fact cover this news, I'm sure they'll spin it in such a way to make Israel seem to be in the wrong.
