Israel's national security aide barred from U.S.

Former Israeli spy linked to Pentagon leak

Uzi Arad, who is expected to serve as national security adviser in the next Israeli government, has been barred from entering the United States for nearly two years on the grounds that he is an intelligence risk.

Mr. Arad, a former member and director of intelligence for the Mossad, Israel's spy service, is mentioned in the indictment of Lawrence Franklin, a former Pentagon analyst who pleaded guilty in 2005 to providing classified information about Iran in a conversation with two employees of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

AIPAC Report Reveals Long History of Activities Harmful to US - IRmep
Mon Jun 2, 2008

WASHINGTON, June 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Members of the press, bloggers and law enforcement officials may request a free copy of our special 200 page report during the annual AIPAC Policy Conference being held this week in Washington, DC.

"Foreign Agents: The American Israel Public Affairs Committee from the 1963 Fulbright Hearings to the 2005 Espionage Scandal" is an expose of AIPAC's encounters with US law enforcement. "Foreign Agents" asks tough questions about AIPAC and the Foreign Agents Registration Act, US election laws and the 1917 Espionage Act.

It begins with Senator J.W. Fulbright's 1963 hearings on foreign agents active in the United States. Fulbright discovered $5 million had been laundered into US lobbying and propaganda activities from Israel-based foreign principals. Isaiah L. "Si" Kenen, AIPAC's founder, received tens of thousands of dollars to write and distribute his lobbying newsletter "The Near East Report."

The "Near East Report" (NER) is still published today at AIPAC headquarters. During Kenen's time it excoriated members of the US Congress who rejected Israeli policy mandates. The NER lavished praise on members of mainstream media and "experts" who provided public relations spin on controversial

Israeli initiatives. One that NER covered up was Israel's Dimona nuclear
power program which clandestinely produced 150 nuclear weapons in spite of the Non-Proliferation Treaty. "Foreign Agents" reproduces the subpoenaed foreign payment vouchers and internal public relations strategy documents in a groundbreaking analysis. Israeli lobby money prevailed in spite of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, nonproliferation efforts and a Department of Justice investigation.

In the late 1980s US-Israel trade was roughly in balance. In 1984 the US and Israel signed America's first "free trade agreement". Between 1989-2006 bilateral trade went from parity to an almost a $50 billion cumulative US deficit with Israel. In 1984 the FBI discovered that AIPAC possessed secret information US companies had supplied to the International Trade Commission, but no criminal charges were pursued.

Since we give them so much money

are we making it easier for them to spy on us, because the cost doesn't have come of their budget, but ours?

How ignorant are we, anyway?

Yup, We are being "Schmaltzed" big time !!

This is why he was barred from U.S.

But I am sure the "Lobby" will get him back in!!

The classified document that Franklin allegedly passed to AIPAC concerned a controversial proposal by Pentagon hard-liners to destabilize Iran. The latest iteration of the national-security presidential directive was drafted by a Pentagon civilian and avid neocon, Michael Rubin, who hoped it would be adopted as official policy by the Bush administration

Breaking the Taboo on Israel's Spying Efforts on the United States
Israel runs one of the most aggressive and damaging espionage networks targeting the U.S., yet public discussion about it is almost nil.
Scratch a counterintelligence officer in the U.S. government and they'll tell you that Israel is not a friend to the United States.
This is because Israel runs one of the most aggressive and damaging espionage networks targeting the U.S..
