"Crimes and Felonies:
The AIPAC Spy Story
Felony Indictments. The End of AIPAC?
The indictment of Keith Weissman and Steve Rosen of AIPAC who stand trial, likely in Spring of 2007, accused of passing U.S. national security information to a foreign government agents (Israel) is potentially the story of how aipac will fall. Rosen was not a mere employee, but widely believed to be the man who built AIPAC into the $60 million powerhouse it is today. The greatest fear among AIPAC supporters is that convictions could lead to the requiring aipac to register as foreign agents. aipac closely coordinates policy with the Israeli Embassy in Washington, DC and the Israeli government, making it an agent of a foreign government. AIPAC should not be allowed to keep its 501(c)(3) tax-deductible charitable status, but should be required to register as a lobbyist for a foreign agent. This would greatly cripple its role in US politics.
