FP Playlist features the Haaretz Weekly podcast in an episode about the NSO Group and its surveillance software Pegasus.
Over the past few weeks, newspapers around the world have collaborated to investigate the NSO Group, a high-tech company founded by Israelis that sells spyware to some unsavory regimes—which have used it to target dissidents. On Foreign Policy Playlist this week, we feature an episode of the podcast Haaretz Weekly that explores how Israeli diplomacy paved the way for NSO deals.
