WASHINGTON (Middle East Eye) – Zionist regime officials are pressuring the Biden administration to remove the cyber spying company NSO Group from a U.S. blacklist.
The Axios news agency quoted two Zionist regime officials and a U.S. one as saying that the White House was considering the request, while another American official denied this.
Last year, NSO was placed on a blacklist by the U.S. Commerce Department, barring it from American technologies crucial to maintaining its operations.
The Commerce Department said its decision was based on evidence that the NSO group and Candiru, another Zionist spyware company, developed and supplied spyware to foreign governments who in turn used it “to maliciously target government officials, journalists, business people, activists, academics, and embassy workers”.
According to Axios, after NSO was sanctioned, there was a debate inside the Zionist regime officials on whether it should lobby the Biden administration on behalf of the company.
“We told the U.S. that they can’t destroy NSO and that several bad clients doesn’t mean the company’s products and capabilities are no longer needed,” a senior Zionist official told Axios.
NSO is at the heart of a global hacking scandal, as researchers say its Pegasus software has been used by a number of governments around the world to target political dissidents, journalists and activists.
