Why Weren’t Spies Treated Like . . . Me?
By Jim Traficant
ON AUGUST 24, A FEDERAL INDICTMENT read that Steven Rosen and Keith Weissman, two senior employees with the pro-Israel lobbying firm AIPAC, “did unlawfully, knowingly and willfully conspire to deliver and transmit information that could be used to the injury of the U.S.A.”
The indictment further read that Rosen and Weissman “influenced persons within the U.S. to gather classified information for subsequent unlawful use.”
Think about it. Conspire, transmit, unlawful, knowingly and willfully. These are words that relate to the behavior of spies. No other definition can be applied. Rosen and Weissman are stone-cold spies for Israel, who were spying on America. You agree? I’d bet on it.
But lo and behold, the courts disagreed. So did The Washington Post. Not even the U.S. Justice Department agreed that these two are spies.
And check this out: A deputy secretary of state said: “These so-called spy meetings were nothing more than ‘back channel’ communications to advance U.S. foreign policy goals.”
You read that correctly: The U.S. government now believes that all involved were examples of the U.S. government’s use of AIPAC as a diplomatic “back channel” to help America, not harm America.
Beam me up! How did Rosen and Weissman become patriots, not spies? What’s next, Congressional Medals of Honor for the two?
The Washington Post wrote that the government’s description of Rosen’s and Weissman’s actions made it a “high burden for U.S. prosecutors.” The government essentially gave “cover” for a dismissal of all charges here.
Furthermore, the government then claimed that the information, no longer referred to as classified documents, being passed on by Rosen and Weissman was “innocuous.” According to the dictionary, innocuous means not offensive and not even controversial. This is unbelievable.
So what happened next? You guessed it. On May 1, 2009, Rosen and Weissman were “exonerated” of all charges, meaning the charges were dismissed. Think about this: U.S. Attorney Dana Boente said he “didn’t want classified information to be disclosed at trial.” What? Come on, attorney general, I thought this information was “innocuous”? Who’s kidding who?
The truth is, Israel has been preying upon Uncle Sam since June 8, 1967, when Israel deliberately attacked the USS Liberty. That’s right: The Israeli military attacked a U.S. ship with the intent of destroying it. (Readers of AFP know more about this than just about anybody in America.)
This act of war was covered up both by Israel and by our government. Survivors and high-ranking U.S. naval personnel witnessed the deliberate attack. But Israel’s tentacles reached deep into our government to cover it up, going as far back as 1967.
Down to this day, the Liberty attack had been disguised as an “honest mistake” by Israel. My ascot, it was a mistake.
I recommend the book Ship Without a Country by Victor Thorn and Mark Glenn. You’ll learn the truth about the USS Liberty there.* And if you think you already know the truth, the gripping eyewitness accounts in the book just might bring you to tears.
The truth cannot be deceived nor denied. Israel has a stranglehold on the U.S. government. She has put America into war with Iraq and continues to push our country toward war with Iran.
It’s time for the American people to take back their government. You can start by taking a pilgrimage to Washington, D.C. I will be headlining a “National Town Hall meeting” at the Capitol Skyline Hotel, hosted by AMERICAN FREE PRESS where I will be discussing the hidden dynamics that have compromised our great nation. No holds barred, I plan to tell it like it is.** And as for AIPAC, if any other lobbyists engaged in the kind of espionage that AIPAC has, they would be in prison, disbanded and prohibited from further activity in the United States.
What are my recommendations? Treat AIPAC like everybody else. Investigate the organization and prohibit it from any further contact with our government. When the great coach of the Green Bay Packers Vince Lombardi died, his players remarked: “He treated us all alike—like dogs, but all alike.” That’s how it should be.
One more thing: Congress should terminate all aid for Israel. Israel knew what AIPAC was doing, because Israel planned and ordered it. Israel should also be compelled to answer for the USS Liberty.
Now that I’ve totally alienated myself from all mainstream media, I’ll conclude my series on AIPAC, with the following quote voiced by Ariel Sharon on Oct. 3, 2001: “We the Jewish people control America, and the
Americans know it.”
Next week: The communist U.S. tax code. That’s right: the absolute, communist, progressive income tax that has destroyed America.
