Spies and the spying liars who sell them

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Two former employees of a pro-Israel lobbying organization were indicted Thursday on charges they conspired to obtain and disclose classified U.S. defense information over a five-year period.

An indictment unsealed Thursday in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Va., names Steven Rosen, formerly the director of foreign policy issues for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, and Keith Weissman, the organization's former senior Iran analyst.

The five-count indictment also spells out in greater detail the government's case against Pentagon analyst Lawrence A. Franklin, who already was facing charges he leaked classified military information to an Israeli official and the AIPAC employees.
I've seen rumors, mostly at Xymphora, that this investigation may connect to Rove v. Plame and the broader crimes involved in lying America into the war in Iraq. Wouldn't it be nice to make aWol's vacation permanent, perhaps at a nice beachfront location on the south coast of Cuba?
