According to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, order discount phosphatidylserine Steven J. Order discount phosphatidylserine Rosen will be allowed to move ahead with his civil defamation lawsuit against the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).  Rosen and fellow AIPAC employee Keith Weissman were indicted under the 1917 Espionage Act in 2005 along with Department of Defense Employee Col. Order discount phosphatidylserine Lawrence Franklin for passing classified national defense information.  Franklin pled guilty, order discount phosphatidylserine but Rosen and Weissman’s case never went to trial — US attorneys gave up (PDF) after the presiding judge made a successful prosecution unlikely.  Rosen’s 2009 civil lawsuit contends that AIPAC defamed him when its spokesperson claimed that he "did not comport with standards that AIPAC expects of its employees." Rosen’s many filings in court reveal that his fundamental case is that AIPAC commonly circulates and distributes classified US government information when it suits the organization’s purpose in lobbying for Israel.  AIPAC defamed him, order discount phosphatidylserine he alleges, order discount phosphatidylserine by claiming he was somehow unique.  An FBI file declassified and released on July 31, order discount phosphatidylserine 2009 (PDF) backs up Rosen’s assertions.  In 1984 AIPAC obtained a classified report compiled from the business secrets of US industries and associations opposed to signing a bilateral trade agreement with Israel.  The FBI found that AIPAC had "attempted to influence members of Congress with the use of a purloined copy of the ITC report and had usurped their authority." The Washington Field Office of the FBI went on to assert that "AIPAC is a powerful pro-Israel lobbying group staffed by U.S. Order discount phosphatidylserine citizens.  WFO files contain an unsubstantiated allegation that a member of the Israeli Intelligence Service was a staff member of AIPAC." Rosen is well on his way to claiming $20 million in damages for AIPAC’s "defamation" propelled by the court’s new ruling.  But for Americans much larger concerns linger.  Why isn’t AIPAC registering as an agent of a foreign principal if it is collaborating so closely with foreign intelligence services?  Why are these matters being litigated in civil court as a family squabble between members of the Israel lobby?  If espionage is a recurring, order discount phosphatidylserine institutionalized feature of AIPAC, order discount phosphatidylserine doesn’t that mitigate against its claims to be an American non-profit, order discount phosphatidylserine working for American interests?  From the NRA to the AARP, order discount phosphatidylserine no legitimate American nonprofit lobby has ever been found to be trafficking in so much intelligence information, order discount phosphatidylserine or so frequently channeling it to foreign government parties and friends in the establishment media. Order discount phosphatidylserine Newly emerging declassified facts are reminders to concerned Americans that AIPAC is not at all what it claims to be. Order discount phosphatidylserine Rosen’s lawsuit will not likely make good on his and former lobbyist Douglas Bloomfield’s implicit threats to reveal AIPAC as a stealth, order discount phosphatidylserine unregistered foreign agent of the Israeli government. Fortunately for Americans, order discount phosphatidylserine that uncomfortable fact is now emerging in myriad ways, order discount phosphatidylserine even in the midst of AIPAC’s new attempts to engineer policies that could accelerate the downfall of the US economy.
