And now pretenders vie for top spy slot..

Meir Dagan is due to step down at the end of this year after 8 years as head of Mossad. Three candidates are in the running to take over. Meir Dagan has survived several changes of political regime in his years as head of Israel’s foreign intelligence service. In 2009 Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu re-upped Dagan for another year. But Dagan’s extra time is now up and despite his efforts to stay on, Netanyahu won’t renew his contract another time. The Israeli premier blames Dagan for allowing the elimination of Mahmoud al-Mabouh in Dubai in January to turn into a diplomatic fiasco.

He also reproaches him for not providing intelligence that could have avoided the bungled raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla that killed nine people on board the Mavi Marmara on May 31.

One of the declared candidates to replace Dagan is Hagai Hadas, former commander of the Kidon “Dagger” unit, responsible for assassinations and kidnappings. Another candidate, who can only be named as TP due to Israeli censorship regarding the names of Mossad operatives, headed the Keshet unit, which handles burglaries and the placing of interception devices. General Amos Yadlin, who is due to step down after five years as head of Israel’s military intelligence, is another pretender. Natanyahu and Defence Minister Ehud Barak, will name their choice in the autumn.
