This is a bit of too much!

The Franklin indictment appears to confirm that the FBI had Rosen under surveillance at least since the summer of 2002, and it is peppered with quotes from Rosen's phone conversations. It depicts Aipac officials as soliciting insider information from an administration official and as being aware ? at least on one occasion ? that the information they had received was "highly classified."

And more.

The mystery at the heart of this investigation is how and when it began. Warren Strobel of Knight Ridder reported in 2004 that the probe ?has been going on for more than two years,? and UPI?s Richard Sale cites a ?former senior U.S. government official? as saying, ?In 2001, the FBI discovered new, ?massive? Israeli spying operations in the East Coast, including New York and New Jersey,? and they began watching Gilon, who eventually led them to Franklin. The JTA dates the genesis of the inquiry more precisely: ?information garnered during the investigation into alleged leaks from a Pentagon analyst to the two former AIPAC staffers suggests the FBI began probing AIPAC officials just before the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.?

Like a dorsal fin poking just above the water, the Franklin spy trial promises us a glimpse of a creature much larger than appears at first sight. Whether the trial will draw it up to the surface remains to be seen. In any case, the magnitude of the problem posed by the covert activities of our ally?heretofore ignored or covered up?is all too clear.

Truely dispicable if the allegations are accurate.

....we and the media never hear about it, otherwise, we
and our 'friends' would run out of adjectives and exhaust
ourselves with outrage. I care to believe there are
'many' good operatives out there, from all sides. Always
have been, always will be. How can you trust, if you are
unable to verify.
