Former Israeli Ambassador Suddenly Can't Hear MSNBC When Asked About Spying On John Kerry

Posted: Updated:

Former Israeli Ambassador to the United States Michael Oren experienced a convenient technical glitch when asked Monday about a sensitive subject.

After MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell asked Oren about suspicions that Israel eavesdropped on Secretary of State John Kerry during his attempt to mediate peace negotiations last year, Oren said he couldn't hear Mitchell's question.

Watch the video above.

“And I just have to ask you very briefly, in ten seconds, were you aware any of eavesdropping on John Kerry by Israeli intelligence?” Mitchell asked.

Oren paused and blinked a few times before he replied, “Andrea, I cannot hear you, I’m sorry.”
