Irony?

Report: Israel Spied on John Kerry's Phone During Middle East Peace Talks

Israel reportedly eavesdropped on U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry's phone calls during last year's failed Middle East peace talks between Israel, Palestinian authorities and Arab states.

The intelligence services of Israel, as well as those of at least one other country, intercepted phone calls made by Kerry using an insecure telephone, according to a report published on Sunday by the German news magazine Der Spiegel.

Which invites the question of why he was speaking on an insecure phone, considering that he has a presumably well-equipped aircraft immediately on hand.

Reckless stupidity? Disinformation?

If he discussed official business, that likely would have been a firing offense, or worse, for any of his minions.
