LEAK UPDATE….Here’s a potentially interesting turn in the espionage case that’s being prosecuted against two former AIPAC lobbyists:
Lawyers for two lobbyists accused of conspiring to obtain secret defense information said Friday that they intended to prove that senior administration officials, including Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, provided the lobbyists with some of the sensitive information.
….At a hearing Friday, Abbe Lowell, the lawyer for former AIPAC employee Steven J. Rosen, said the testimony of Rice and the other officials was necessary to show that they also had disclosed sensitive information and that some of the disclosures at the crux of the indictments might have been authorized.
An “authorized” leak? Now where have I heard that phrase before….?
