EXCLUSIVE: Hundreds of files — with social security numbers, bank
account numbers and other sensitive U.S. government information — were
found in a filing cabinet purchased from the U.S. consulate in
Jerusalem through a local auction.
"We couldn't believe what we found," said Paula, who purchased the
cabinets and asked that her last name not be published. "We thought of
calling the American consulate right away, and then we thought, you
know they'll just hide it and say, 'Oh, we made a mistake.'"
The consulate was unaware of the missing files until FOX News
contacted U.S. officials. Initially they said that no filing cabinets
were sold in the auction, but later they acknowledged the sale. The
State Department has now launched an investigation.
The files contained social security numbers of U.S. Marines and State
Department employees stationed in Israel, and documentation of how
U.S. government money is allocated to fund sensitive programs in the
region. Among the papers was also a report labeled "secret" that
documented an encounter a U.S. Marine had with an Israeli woman at a
bar in Jerusalem.
