Spy case against AIPAC lobbyists dropped
It's fascinating how little real attention the Justice Dept. decision to drop the spy case against Steven Rosen and Keith Weissman, two former lobbyists for AIPAC. Of course it was done on a Friday afternoon, the typical time in Washington to announce a story you want buried, when most of the media have already started the weekend, and during the same week Specter defected and Souter announced his retirement from the Supremes. The fact that Joe Biden was scheduled to appear at the AIPAC conference today was probably strictly coincidental.
