Hackers have released the first series of emails taken from the inbox of the UAE’s ambassador to the United States, Yousef al-Otaiba. Hackers leak emails from UAS ambassader to US.
The Intercept reported on Saturday that the emails, released by a group called “Global Leaks”, show a close relationship between al-Otaiba and a pro-Israel, neoconservative think-tank – the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD).
The hacked emails, some of which date back to 2014, reveal a high level of backchannel cooperation between the FDD, which is funded by pro-Israel billionaire Sheldon Adelson, and the UAE.
They also appear to show clear collaboration between the FDD and the UAE on a campaign to downgrade the image and importance of Qatar as a regional and global power, including collusion with journalists who have published articles accusing Qatar and Kuwait of supporting “terrorism”.
