Why is anyone surprised at the evil tricks of an organisation that once
had Reinhard Heydrich as its president and whose offices were all in
Berlin from 1938 to 1945 and which always refused to get involved in
chasing Nazi war criminals?

I hadn't been aware of this! Nebe and Kaltenbrunner also shared the
honor.

Thus says Wiki:

"In order to maintain as politically neutral a role as possible,
Interpol's constitution forbids it to undertake any interventions or
activities of a political, military, religious, or racial nature.[3] Its
work focuses primarily on public safety, terrorism, organized crime,
crimes against humanity, environmental crime, genocide, war crimes,
piracy, illicit drug production, drug trafficking, weapons smuggling,
human trafficking, money laundering, child pornography, white-collar
crime, computer crime, intellectual property crime and corruption."

By this reading, it ought not to cooperate with certain governments!

"Until the 1980s Interpol did not intervene in the prosecution of Nazi
war criminals in accordance with Article 3 of its Constitution
forbidding intervention in 'political' matters.[9] However, it has
issued arrest warrants for former country leaders like Zine El Abidine
Ben Ali and Hosni Mubarak despite Article 3, on the grounds that they
were accused of corruption (particularly embezzlement)."

Can't tolerate embezzlement, but a little thing like crimes against
humanity...

Israel may not need to worry; we'll use a Newtron bomb on Iran! :-) But
don't count on it.

Why bother spying?

The US Navy and the Indian Navy do joint exercises.

I imagine that in due course they'll get invited on board for a visit.

The Russians can't say who is and who is not allowed on board another
navy's ship.
