Closer and closer the AIPAC/Pentagon spy scandal gets to implicating many more American Jews and their 'dually-loyal' connection to Israel:
August 18, 2005 -- The New York Times is reporting that the anonymous U.S. government source identified as "USGO-2" in the Franklin/Rosen/Weismann AIPAC national security indictment is David Satterfield, former US ambassador to Lebanon and now Deputy Chief of Mission in Baghdad under Zalmay Khalilzad. The revelations about Satterfield came after the August 16 arraignment of former AIPAC officials Steve Rosen and Keith Weissman at the US District Court in Alexandria, Virginia. Franklin was arraigned the same day on additional charges. The indictment states that USGO-2 (Satterfield) discussed classified national security information with Rosen during two meetings, Jan. 18 and Mar. 12, 2002. Two other people identified in the indictment, USGO-1, a senior government official, and DOD-B, a Department of Defense official, remain unidentified. Satterfield worked for Martin Indyk in the Clinton State Department and National Security Council. Satterfield also liaised during his stint at State with Clinton Middle East envoy Dennis Ross who now heads the pro-Likud Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP). After the recent allegations, both Indyk and Ross have come to Satterfield's defense. On September 21, 2000, Martin Indyk, the then-US ambassador to Israel, had his security clearance suspended by the State Department. Indyk was invstigated for violating State Department security regulations. At a September 25 State Department press conference, Richard Boucher, the Department spokesman, said, "We have not suspended security clearances for an Ambassador previously, prior to this. This is the first time this has happened to an Ambassador."
