Yigal Carmon, the Mossad and MEMRI

I noticed that published stories about Yigal Carmon, the founder of the Mossad, does not mention his background with the Mossad.  He is referred to as former Colonel in the Israeli terrorist forces and a government adviser on terrorism.  But he also was a senior member of the Mossad who had extensive dealings with the Lebanese Forces death squads during the civil war years.  For the other side of Carmon, see Alain Menargues, Les Secrets De La Guerre Du Liban.  Regarding the writings of Menargues on Lebanon (he has a second book out): I was cautious in using them because I was not able to verify the reliability.  But I was able recently to verify reliability by learning of his method of documentation.  Menargues simply paid money to senior former Lebanese Forces commander to obtain detailed documents and minutes of meetings.
