Spy vs. Spy, or With Friends Like These…

Yesterday's WSJ story on the administrations' pique at the audacity of Israel's actually spying on US-Iranian nuclear talks (see story here)is a real knee slapper, given that the US found out about the spying from their own spying on Israel. Two paragraphs in the story say it all:

The espionage didn’t upset the White House as much as Israel’s sharing of inside information with U.S. lawmakers and others to drain support from a high-stakes deal intended to limit Iran’s nuclear program, current and former officials said.
 vs. SPY
The White House discovered the operation, in fact, when U.S. intelligence agencies spying on Israel intercepted communications among Israeli officials that carried details the U.S. believed could have come only from access to the confidential talks, officials briefed on the matter said.

Implementation suggestions for THE MORGAN DOCTRINE are most welcome. What are the "Got'chas!"? What questions would some future Cyber Privateering Czar have to answer about this in a Senate confirmation hearing?
