AIPAC — the ramifications
Joseph Cannon - April 24, 2009
For big laffs, check out Marty Peretz on the dropping of the AIPAC case:
The espionage that they were supposed to have committed turns out not to be espionage but rather casual talk on insignificant topics with people friendly to the United States.
The AIPAC case is “insignificant.” Uh huh. Then why did former DOD employee Larry Franklin receive a twelve year sentence? Why was the “insignificant” information classified Top Secret? Why was the FBI tapping Saban — and others? Do courts allow legal wiretaps on unimportant matters? Why did the FBI review the late Jack Anderson’s long history of AIPAC contacts? Why has the FBI been probing AIPAC since before 9/11?
