Israel says it has changed its intelligence-sharing protocols with the United States after President Donald Trump disclosed classified information to Russian diplomats earlier this month that had come from Israel, even though Tel Aviv had not assented to his handing it to another country.

Israeli defense chief Avigdor Liberman told Army Radio on Wednesday, “I can confirm that we did a spot repair and that there’s unprecedented intelligence cooperation with the United States." He added, "What we had to clarify with our friends in the United States, we did. We did our checks.”

Liberman declined to say what changes had been made. "Not everything needs to be discussed in the media; some things need to be talked about in closed rooms," he said.

Trump's disclosure came two weeks ago as he met at the White House with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Moscow's ambassador to Washington, Sergey Kislyak. The U.S. leader, according to accounts of the meeting in U.S. media, boasted that he had "great intel," revealing classified information about an Islamic State threat involving bombs implanted inside laptop computers carried on airplanes.

I think they probably already have. Wouldn't you?
