Why I believe that some of the Israeli agents in the recent Dubai assassination had neither fake passports nor fake identities

The important thing in this statement is 'some' and not all. I believe that some of the hit team had actually stolen the passports, and these must be regular Mossad agents, and some (or most) didn't, and these are 'non Mossad' real people recruited for a one time operation...

Mossad has actually used both tactics in the past but the size of the team and importance of the operation in Dubai, as well as the changing technologies of airport and hotel surveillance, suggest that this operation required a special approach in terms of disinformation. Disinformation is actually information that mixes true facts and statements, in little amounts, with false information, in huge amounts.

Blurring the lines between real and fake identities is one of those tactics.

And the people who are screaming that their identities were stolen should be thoroughly investigated because some (most) of them are probably lying...

To support my opinion I invite you to read this.

And this. Dubai hit: another move in the Israel-Iran cold war.

UPDATE 1: Don't you see a contradiction in this ? And of course more disinformation...
Ms. Kite’s sources told her that “the six British citizens whose identities were stolen and used by the killers all had their passports taken away from them briefly during routine checks at the airport,” in Israel. All six of the British nationals whose names and passport numbers were used on fake documents carried by suspects identified by investigators in Dubai currently live in Israel.

UPDATE 2: 15 more suspects holding British passports are identified by Dubai police. They all live in israel of course and they are all screaming that they are innocent and I don't believe all of them.
David Miliband, the British foreign secretary is treating the matter lightly...

UPDATE 3: Most reports in the press about the assassination are shrouded in disinformation, and very few carry real information, this one does ...

UPDATE 4: How 'unwitting' were the British Israelis ?

Dubai Police has confirmed a point I mentioned in last week's column; that Israeli citizens must enter and depart Israel on their Israeli passports.
