Excerpt: A real-life James Bond sheds light on the death of Imad Mugniyeh

From The National Post

Last year, Michael Ross and I wrote a book called "The Volunteer: A Canadian's Secret Life in the Mossad." It told Michael's story — that of a Canadian backpacker from Victoria, B.C., who wound up in the Israeli Mossad and had a number of interesting missions. One of his successful missions — described in Chapter 9 — involved placing a bomb under the car of a Hezbollah agent, who later was blown up by remote control. It was a mission with very close and obvious parallels with the death of Imad Mughniyeh, a top Hezbollah leader and known terrorist killed by a car bomb this week. — Jonathan Kay

Read the whole thing. Well worth it.
