And now - Deep Background by Philip Giraldi

p.21 of the December 4, 2006 issue of The American Conservative:

Yechezkel Wells, a Florida student, pleaded guilty on Oct. 24 to making a phony bomb threat after he called 911 at Long Beach Airport, near Los Angeles. Wells claimed that he had arrived at the terminal on Aug. 26 too late to clear security for his flight so he made the call, hoping to delay the departure so he could board. Instead, the airport was shut down while the plane was searched. Wells will be sentenced on Jan. 29 and faces a punishment that can range from probation to five years in prison. The FBI reportedly has kept the case open as Wells, an Israeli citizen who claims to be a student but does not appear to be registered for a course of study anywhere, is suspected of working for Israeli intelligence in some capacity. If it is determined that he might be from Mossad, he will undoubtedly be quietly deported on immigration charges to avoid embarrassing the Israeli government.
