CITY OF LEXINGTON )
I, ARI BEN-MENASHE, being duly sworn, do hereby state as
1. Between August 1977 and September 1987, I was employed by
the Israel Defense Forces (IDF)/Military Intelligence External Relations
2. In my above capacity, I had contacts with the Office of the
Israeli Prime Minister's Anti-Terrorism Advisor.
3. In 1982, the Israeli Prime Minister's Anti-Terrorism Advisor
was Mr. Rafael Eitan.
4. In a meeting that took place in December 1982 in Mr. Eitan's
office in the Kirya in Tel Aviv, Israel, Mr. Eitan told me that he had
received earlier that year in the United States, from Mr. Earl W. Brian and
Mr. Robert McFarlane, PROMIS computer software for the limited use of the
IDF's Signals Intelligence Unit for intelligence purposes only. Mr. Eitan
stated on this occasion, and on earlier occasions as well, that he had
special relationships with both Mr. Brian and Mr. McFarlane.
5. This meeting took place in the context of a visit by a foreign
dignitary. During a break in the meeting, Mr. Eitan took me aside and gave
me the above facts to relate to my superiors so that Mr. Eitan's office
could take credit for the introduction of the PROMIS computer software
into IDF's Signals Intelligence Unit.
6. I hereby certify that the facts set forth in this Affidavit are true
and correct to the best of my knowledge.
FURTHER AFFIANT SAYETH NOT.
