Declassified FBI File Alleges an Israeli Intelligence Agent Worked at AIPAC

Declassified FBI File Alleges an Israeli Intelligence Agent Worked at AIPAC

WASHINGTON, Nov. 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- An agent of the Israeli
intelligence service worked on the staff of the American Israel Public Affairs
Committee (AIPAC) according to a newly declassified FBI file. 

An August 13, 1984 secret communication from the FBI Washington Field Office
(WFO) to the FBI director states, "WFO files disclose that AIPAC is a powerful
pro-Israel lobbying group staffed by U.S. citizens. WFO files contain an
unsubstantiated allegation that a member of the Israeli Intelligence Service
was a staff member of AIPAC." The newly declassified document may be
downloaded from the Israel Lobby Archive at:

The secret FBI file was declassified and released to the Institute for
Research: Middle Eastern Policy (IRmep) under a Freedom of Information Act
(FOIA) request. IRmep sought the FBI files to file a third amicus brief urging
Judge T.S. Ellis not to dismiss charges against two AIPAC staffers under the
1917 Espionage Act. The DOJ dropped espionage charges against former AIPAC
staffers Steve Rosen and Keith Weissman on May 1, 2009.

According to the newly released IRmep book "Spy Trade: How Israel's Lobby
Undermines America's Economy," the 1984 and 2005 espionage incidents were not
isolated events. Using declassified documents, "Spy Trade" documents Israeli
covert actions against US military and industrial targets from the 1940s
through the present. 

"Spy Trade" also presents a damage assessment for the 1984 AIPAC industrial
espionage incident: US $71 billion in lost exports, equivalent to 100,000 jobs
over the last decade. "Spy Trade" may be purchased at MiddleEastBooks.com,
Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, and other bookstores.

The Israel Lobby Archive, http://IRmep.org/ila, is a unit of the Institute for
Research: Middle Eastern Policy in Washington. The Archive digitizes
declassified documents obtained through Freedom of Information Act filings
with law enforcement and intelligence agencies. The Archive facilitates
permanent direct citizen access to critical records that briefly enter the
public domain but vanish for lack of warranted mainstream media coverage.
