Death of the AIPAC case

Yesterday the Justice Department dismissed the espionage charges against former AIPAC officials Steven Rosen and Keth Weissman. The Wall Street Journal editorial says just about everything that needs to be said on the subject, including the late hit on Rep. Jane Harman disseminated by Congressional Quarterly SpyTalk columnist Jeff Stein that proved to be an omen foretelling the demise of the prosecution. Only missing from the Journal editorial is a comparison of the Justice Department’s prosecution of Rosen and Weissman for fabricated espionage crimes with its inaction regarding the real espionage crimes of the New York Times, which I wrote about in the Standard column “Exposure.”
