Shhhh! Don't use the * E * word...
It sounds like espionage. It looks like espionage . It smells like espionage. But since the players are The Pentagon and AIPAC (Israel's strong-arming lobby machine), let's call it something else.
Nice work, FBI. Dissemble much?
June 13, 2005 | Washington -- A Pentagon analyst has been indicted on charges that he leaked classified military information to employees of a pro-Israel lobbying organization and an Israeli official, federal authorities said Monday.
The six-count indictment charges that Lawrence A. Franklin conspired to disclose national defense and classified information to people not entitled to receive it, including information about potential attacks on U.S. forces in Iraq.
None of the charges involves espionage. An FBI agent's affidavit that accompanied the criminal complaint against Franklin last month did not suggest that the disclosure endangered U.S. troops, but it said intelligence sources could have been compromised.
