In 1966, Israeli Intelligence Convinced an Iraqi Pilot to Defect With His MiG-21
War Is Boring

History like this interests me very much, and all of this was news to me. So I tried repeatedly to copy and paste people in the story into Google and read more I get nothing. Is there any reliable sources that support this story? I have read many articles on aviation history by Tom Cooper before and enjoyed them, but this is a real warning sign. It does seem possible that its basically all made up. Very disappointing WiB.
