Wednesday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided the headquarters of the American-Israel Public Affairs Commitee in Washington. In an operation
of military planning and precision, the FBI confiscated AIPAC files related to the DoD espionnage scandal uncovered this year where an Israeli spy had
transmitted confidential reports about the US's Iran policy to Israel.
FBI Seizes Files of Pro-Israel Group
The FBI expanded its counterintelligence investigation of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee yesterday, seizing computer files at the
lobbying group's Washington offices and serving grand jury subpoenas on four staff members, according to AIPAC and FBI officials.
The FBI previously obtained computer files from AIPAC in connection with a probe of a Defense Department analyst, Lawrence A. Franklin, suspected of
providing classified information to the group. Authorities are also investigating whether the information, including a draft directive on U.S.
policies toward Iran, was then passed on to Israel, sources have said.
