Subject: How AIPAC agents will be defended: Then They Came for Me
It is increasingly apparent that the defense of the two AIPAC agents arrested for receiving and passing secrets about Iran to the Israeli government will be spun as an attempt by the US government to further restrict access to classified documents and penalize those who reveal them to the public, i.e., whistle blowers, despite the fact this is NOT what these two agents did. They gave the information to a foreign government. But already journalistic organizations, under the sway of the lobby, are concerned about the prosecution of Rosen and Weissman as being a threat to our civil liberties. This from the folks at "the lobby" who gave us the Effective Death Penalty and Counter-terrorism Act under Clinton.
