While terrorists troll in the Gailee, traitors turn tricks for the cause:

U.S. announces indictment of two senior AIPAC officials

quote:
The fact that Rosen and Weissman, as American citizens, handed information to an official representative of a foreign power while knowing it was classified is incriminating under the 1917 Espionage Act, which defines as a crime receipt of classified information for the purpose of helping any foreign entity.

AIPAC's decision to cooperate with the investigators' demands and to fire the two officials was made after it became evident that the FBI had tape-recordings showing that Franklin explicitly said that the material was secret. AIPAC's assessment was that it would be difficult for the organization to continue working on Capitol Hill, and with the administration, while two of its senior officials are facing such charges.


Difficult to continue working? Strangely, since their very existence depends upon it, they underestimate the corruption and spinelessness of of the Capitol's political culture.

Furthermore, this story is happening in the US, not the Middle East.
