Quick some one needs to call John Titor to explain this!!
Prosecutors unsuccessfully challenged the subpoenas. If the officials ultimately testify, the trial in federal court in suburban Alexandria, Va.
could offer a behind-the-scenes look at the way U.S. foreign policy is crafted.Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
1 Did this challenge take 2 years to get a ruling?? This would explain the time gap.
2 Why would prosecutors try to challenge the subpoenas? wouldn't they be the ones issuing them?
The lobbyists are accused of receiving classified information from a now-convicted Pentagon official and relaying it to an Israeli official and
the press. The information included details about the al-Qaida terror network, U.S. policy in Iran and the bombing of the Khobar Towers dormitory in
Saudi Arabia, federal prosecutors said.
But defense attorneys argued that top U.S. officials regularly used the lobbyists as a go-between as they crafted Middle East policy. If so, attorneys
say, how are Rosen and Weissman supposed to know the same behavior that's expected of them on one day is criminal the next?Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
Why use Lobbyists they are not government agents?? They are not ambassadors??? Should they be allowed to recieve and pass on classified
information???...I think Not!!!
