FBI video of convicted spy suggests that US let Israeli gov’t off hook in the case

News
on 29 Comments

This past Monday, the FBI released counterespionage surveillance video  that sheds new light on the case of convicted felon, former NASA employee Stewart Nozette. The imperfectly-redacted video, which was obtained by the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy (IRMEP) under the Freedom of Information Act,  appears to reveal Nozette saying in 2009 that he gave classified U.S. government information to “Israeli Aircraft,” also known as Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI).

But Nozette was convicted for agreeing to sell U.S. government secrets to Israel, i.e., attempted espionage, not for having sold the secrets. A nonprofit run by Nozette received $225,000 in “consulting fees” from IAI in the ten years before he was stung by the FBI. If Nozette released classified information to IAI, the implications are important.

Above is the video just released by the government (not to be confused with the video previously released to the press, here).  At about 2:21, Nozette seems to indicate that he already gave information to Aircraft.

According to IRmep’s Grant Smith, in conversation with me:

Nozette’s counsel fought this video’s release in court.  They reveal Nozette asking for a “token” and receiving cash in envelopes, talking about where he had stored stolen classified info on hard drives, and apparently talking about having already passed classified info to IAI. (which someone at DOJ helpfully redacted, but not entirely).

This apparent revelation leads to the question of why our government didn’t say anything about IAI, a much bigger fish than Nozette. When questioned by Smith, US Attorney Ron Machen denied that classified information was passed by Nozette to Israel. But Israel Aerospace Industries is Israel’s prime aerospace and aviation manufacturer. It produces aerial systems for the military and is wholly owned by the government of Israel.

Smith goes on:

“If Nozette did pass secrets to the Israeli government, the least our Justice Department should have done was to investigate and disclose who from IAI was paying Nozette, how they would meet, how Nozette was tasked, and why he was under the impression that he was already working for Mossad, through IAI. In this case, embarrassment of the Israeli government would have been the best punishment and deterrent to any future shenanigans. Instead they tried to censor the tape (though not the court documents).

“When Telegy was caught illegally shipping oscilloscopes to Israel through a front a couple years ago, the US fined the US node, and it collapsed. The US wouldn’t have had to fine IAI, it could have simply withheld a payment on the Arrow project, like Bush I symbolically withheld loan guarantees, citing the reason why. But that didn’t happen. Or prosecutors could have loudly shut down the bogus Nozette “Alliance for Competitive Technology” nonprofit by pulling its charter, citing the IAI payments for information. That didn’t happen either.

“By hermetically sealing off all responsibility for Israel by nailing Nozette with a Mossad impersonator, and then telling the American people that no classified information was ever passed to Israel, the Justice Department has, once again, guaranteed that something like this will happen again. The record is clear on that.”

Here’s more on IAI from Business Wire: New FBI counterespionage surveillance video release reopens concerns about Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd.– IRmep

In the 1950s the state-owned IAI was established and led by Adolph “Al” Schwimmer, an American felon convicted for serially violating U.S. arms export controls. Schwimmer fraudulently obtained heavily discounted surplus U.S. aircraft from the War Assets Administration.  In the 1960s IAI obtained stolen French Mirage 5 jet fighter plans in order to build its own copycat Kfir jet fighter.

In the 1980s IAI relied on the American Israel Public Affairs Committee to win U.S. funding for the development of the troubled Lavi jet fighter. The Lavi program was terminated in 1987 after questionable Israeli technology transfers to China.  The U.S. has paid for half of the jointly developed IAI/Boeing Arrow Anti-Missile system since 1988. Since 2007 the AIPAC has lobbied for hundreds of millions in additional U.S. taxpayer funding for the new Arrow III, beyond the $3 billion in military aid already provided to Israel annually. 

[Earlier this week] AIPAC DC convention attendees will lobby Congress against cutting under sequestration any funding to IAI or other aid to Israel.

Reflecting on spies and the pressure to release Pollard ahead of Obama’s visit to Israel— why did our government go easy the Israelis?

    Great work Annie and IRMEP!

    Show our government protecting (and avenging) us, night and day! Just as they protected (and avenged) the USS Liberty in 1967. And protected and avenged us w.r.t. the Big Banks (events of 2008).

    Way to go, GoUSA!

      Ben Ami Kadish
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben-ami_Kadish
      “Kadish was employed as a mechanical engineer by the United States Army Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center at the Picatinny Arsenal in Dover, New Jersey from October 1963 to January 1990. Kadish conspired to disclose national defense-related documents to Israel and worked as agent of the Israeli government from 1979 to 1985. Kadish took classified documents to his handler’s home in Riverdale, Bronx several times (including information about nuclear weapons, a modified F-15 fighter, and the Patriot missiles) and let an unnamed Israeli government worker take photographs of them.[5]

      Yosef Yagur, Kadish’s Israeli handler,[6] along with his Israeli Embassy counterpart Ilan Ravid, were recalled by Israel in November 1985. Neither returned to the United States. Civilian intelligence analyst Jonathan Pollard was also charged and convicted on espionage charges associated with Yagur.

      Kadish was charged with four counts: one count of conspiring to disclose documents related to the national defense of the United States to the Government of Israel; one count of conspiring to act as an agent of the Government of Israel; one count of conspiring to hinder a communication to a law enforcement officer; and one count of conspiring to make a materially false statement to a law enforcement officer.”

      So this guy answered to the same Israeli agent as Pollard. Kadish got a 50,ooo dollar fine. Talk about a slap on the hand

      U.S. man evades jail time in ‘mysterious’ case of spying for Israel

      An 85-year-old former civilian employee of the U.S. Army was fined but avoided prison time on Friday after earlier pleading guilty to giving classified documents to Israel in the 1980s, in a case the sentencing judge said was “shrouded in mystery.”

      Court documents showed that Ben-Ami Kadish, who was fined $50,000 but spared prison time, reported to the same handler as Jonathan Pollard, an American who spied for Israel in the 1980s and triggered a scandal that rocked U.S.-Israeli relations.

      “Why it took the government 23 years to charge Mr. Kadish is shrouded in mystery,” U.S. District Judge William Pauley said during the sentencing hearing in Manhattan federal court. “It is clear the [U.S.] government could have charged Mr. Kadish with far more serious crimes.”

      Kadish pleaded guilty in December to acting as an unregistered agent of Israel. He was arrested in April 2008 on four counts of conspiracy and espionage. The spying charge, dropped under a plea deal, had carried a possible death sentence.

      From Al Jazeera:

      US man admits ‘spying for Israel’

      An 85-year-old former US army engineer has admitted passing classified military documents to Israel during the 1980s, prosecutors say.

      Ben-Ami Kadish was accused of providing the documents, including some relating to US nuclear weapons systems, to an Israeli agent, Yosef Yagur, who photographed them at Kadish’s home.

      Kadish, who pleaded guilty to only one of the four espionage-related charges he originally faced, entered the plea at a New York court on Tuesday.

      He is set to be sentenced in February and could face a maximum of five years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

      However, a US prosecutor said on Tuesday that the government would not oppose a sentence that means Kadish will not serve time in prison, the Associated Press reported.

      Yagur has been linked in court documents to the case of Jonathan Pollard, a US citizen who is serving a life sentence for a 1985 charge of spying for Israel.

      Court papers say Kadish’s alleged spying took place between 1979 and 1985, although he maintained contact with an Israeli consular official until this year.

      Israel has denied spying on the US after 1985.

      Classified documents

      The charges alleged that the Israeli consular official, identified in the indictment as “CC-1”, gave Kadish lists of classified documents to obtain from the US Army’s Armament Research, Development, and Engineering Centre at the Picatinny Arsenal in the state of New Jersey.

      The documents included information about nuclear weapons, fighter jets and the US Patriot missile air defence system, prosecutors say.

      Kadish, who worked at the arsenal from 1963-1990, kept in touch with CC-1 via telephone and email and met the official in Israel in 2004, authorities said.
      “CC-1” had left the US in 1985 and has never returned, the US authorities said.

    Corruption of the American legal system is nothing new but obvious when money talks. Just look at the number of AIPAC contributions shovel to senators and representatives. The money carrousel that goes to Israel and comes back as contributions is staggering. Yet there is the case of dual loyalists who are consummate jihadists, just n religious and ideological basis.

      For decades the CIA has been trying to find The Mole or The Moles they believe are in key positions in the US government.

      The Larry Franklin case is an example of how this effort was on going. Franklin was never the target of the FBI investigation, he only arose thru telephone intercepts.

      http://www.economist.com/node/3156882

      ”But there is growing speculation that the FBI investigation of Mr Franklin is the tip of an iceberg. The reported anger of federal agents at the leaking of the story indicates a bigger probe that may have been under way for at least a year. The agents fear that the trail will disappear in the glare of media scrutiny.”
      The leak of Mr Franklin’s alleged involvement may have killed any chance of pinning down more senior Pentagon officials.

      The Leak:

      News of the investigation was aired by CBS. Which blew the FBI’s wider covert investigation.

      How Did CBS Know about the Secret Investigation:

      The FBI was monitoring Franklin once he turned up as a player and monitored a call between Franklin and reporters at CBS News in May, in which he allegedly disclosed information about aggressive Iranian policy in Iraq.
      One of those reporters Franklin talked to was Adam Ciralsky, a former attorney at the CIA who sued the agency after he was fired by the CIA for his connection to Israel related activities and failing polygraph test on his activities.

      Who was the CBS’s Adam Ciralsky?

      In 2000 the CIA fired a staff attorney Adam J. Ciralsky and revoked his top-secret security clearance in 1998 after he failed two polygraph examinations …
      Ciralsky, 28, a Milwaukee native, started working for the CIA’s Office of General Counsel in December 1996.
      Within days of his arrival, the CIA opened a counterespionage investigation after receiving a report from another agency raising concerns about Ciralsky that were related to his previous employment at a defense contractor.
      In July 1998, after Ciralsky had taken two polygraph examinations and been interviewed numerous times, the agency revoked his top-secret clearance and effectively terminated his employment for not fully revealing his relationship with two people with dual U.S.-Israeli citizenship who work for Israeli defense firms and have possible ties to Israeli intelligence.
      CIA investigators determined that Ciralsky failed to disclose his association with one of the dual nationals, who he met in Israel and later introduced to his boss at Berner Lanphier and Associates (BLA), a Washington-area defense contractor, according to the CIA memorandum.
      The memo, written by Alan C. Wade, the agency’s associate deputy director for security, said the meeting brokered by Ciralsky involved the possible sale of Israeli-made combat tank sensors to the Pentagon.
      Based on information obtained from a BLA employee, Wade also concluded that Ciralsky knew of the dual national’s attempts to obtain export-controlled ballistic missile tracking software from BLA, and that the dual national had suspected ties to Israeli intelligence.
      Wade’s memo also states that Ciralsky brokered another meeting at BLA for a second dual national interested in selling Israeli-made unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to the Pentagon. Based on information obtained from the BLA employee, Wade concluded that Ciralsky had access to classified UAV software and proposed that the essence of that software be given to the dual national, whom Wade suspected of ties to Israeli intelligence.
      Wade also says that Ciralsky failed two polygraph examinations in which he was asked questions about “deliberately compromising U.S. government classified information to an Israeli national, accepting compensation from an Israeli national in exchange for U.S. government classified information, and deliberately concealing from the U.S. government a relationship with an Israeli national.”

      Where CBS comes in:

      CBS and NPR ran programs interviewing Ciralsky about his lawsuit against the CIA in which he alleged he had been fired because of ‘anti semitism’ at the CIA.
      Then in a strange twist, Ciralsky was hired by CBS News as a producer.

      And an even stranger twist was why Ciralsky at CBS was the reporter Franklin was communicating with…..as in who sent Franklin to Ciralsky as a contact?

      And what a ‘coincidence’ that Ciralsky’s CBS news broke the story that short circuited the FBI investigation.

      Small world isn’t it?

        Then, there’s this little forgotten swept under the rug gem:

        Calif.’s Harman Rails Against Wiretapping That Ensnared Her

        Rep. Jane Harman vowed yesterday to clear her name after the revelation of a wiretapped conversation in which she reportedly agreed to intervene in the federal investigation of two pro-Israel lobbyists in exchange for help in getting a coveted congressional post.

        News organizations reported last month that Harman was caught on a wiretap speaking to a suspected Israeli agent about two AIPAC lobbyists accused of illegally passing classified information to foreign officials and reporters. The congresswoman reportedly agreed to press Bush administration officials to show leniency toward the men, the reports said. In return, the suspected agent said he would lobby for Harman to get the chairmanship of the House intelligence committee, according to an article on the Congressional Quarterly Web site, which first reported the wiretap.

        The FBI opened a preliminary investigation of Harman at the time but later closed it, officials said. The congresswoman, a longtime AIPAC supporter, has denied contacting the White House or Justice Department about the two lobbyists. Harman was passed over for the intelligence committee chairmanship when Democrats took control of the House in 2006.

        Harman has described the wiretap as an abuse of government power. But sources have told The Washington Post that she was not being surveilled; the tapped phone belonged to the suspected Israeli agent, who happened to talk to her.

        “I will not quit on this until I am absolutely sure this can never happen to anyone else,” Harman told the AIPAC audience, which warmly applauded her. She said the incident was having “a chilling effect” on members of Congress who “care intensely about the U.S.-Israeli security relationship . . . and have every right to talk to advocacy groups.”

        Federal prosecutors last week dropped the case against the former lobbyists, Steven J. Rosen and Keith Weissman, saying recent court rulings had changed the legal dynamics and made it unlikely they would win.

        She conspires with a foreign agent to get two Zionist spies off the hook. In exchange for getting to chair the highest body overseeing the fight against spies.

        She is caught by a legal wiretap which she fulminates against, while justifying all illegal wiretaps.

        She does get the spies off the hook at the end.

        She is still there and unharmed.

        I believe the FBI raid of Aipac offices leaks went to Leslie Stahl of 60 minutes. Think she blew the whistle on the F.B.I. investigation interfering with the progress of that investigation

        There have been many articles about the F.B. I allegedly after some big fish in the Israeli spy dual citizenship network. Articles written about a “Mega” or is it just another name for the access to the U.S. communication systems that private Israeli communication systems have (Amdocs, Comverse Infosys) Who knows. Although one thing for sure is that one would think that if all of this Israeli and dual citizens spying on the US would be taken down once it was determined to jeopardize US National Security. I have always wondered about Bob Woodward being a king pin. Know that is out there…but have wondered he is so often on a slippery slope with his views, his reporting his positions

    Spy Games — Israel Targeted Again

    Espionage Experts Say Israel Is a Major Collector of U.S. Intel

    The arrest of a New Jersey engineer on charges of conspiracy to pass U.S. military secrets to Israel Tuesday shows a consistent, continued pattern of Israeli spying on its major benefactor, the United States, according to espionage experts.

    “The Israelis have always been active intelligence collectors in the U.S. It’s just a matter of time in terms of when we have sufficient evidence to bring one of the cases,” said John Martin, retired senior U.S. Department of Justice executive who oversaw the investigation and prosecution of espionage cases in the U.S. for more than 30 years, including that of convicted spy Jonathan Pollard. Pollard is currently serving his 23rd year of a life sentence in federal prison in North Carolina for passing highly classified information to Israel.

    Israel Has Long Spied on U.S., Say Officials

    WASHINGTON — Despite its fervent denials, Israel secretly maintains a large and active intelligence-gathering operation in the United States that has long attempted to recruit U.S. officials as spies and to procure classified documents, U.S. government officials said.

    FBI and other counterespionage agents, in turn, have covertly followed, bugged and videotaped Israeli diplomats, intelligence officers and others in Washington, New York and elsewhere, the officials said. The FBI routinely watches many diplomats assigned to America.

    “There is a huge, aggressive, ongoing set of Israeli activities directed against the United States,” said a former intelligence official who was familiar with the latest FBI probe and who recently left government. “Anybody who worked in counterintelligence in a professional capacity will tell you the Israelis are among the most aggressive and active countries targeting the United States.”

    Israeli spies wooing U.S. Muslims, sources say

    The CIA took an internal poll not long ago about friendly foreign intelligence agencies.

    The question, mostly directed to employees of the clandestine service branch, was: Which are the best allies among friendly spy services, in terms of liaison with the CIA, and which are the worst? In other words, who acts like, well, friends?

    “Israel came in dead last,” a recently retired CIA official told me the other day.

    Not only that, he added, throwing up his hands and rising from his chair, “the Israelis are number three, with China number one and Russia number two,” in terms of how aggressive they are in their operations on U.S. soil.

    Israel’s undercover operations here, including missions to steal U.S. secrets, are hardly a secret at the FBI, CIA and other U.S. intelligence agencies. From time to time, in fact, the FBI has called Israeli officials on the carpet to complain about a particularly brazen effort to collect classified or other sensitive information, in particular U.S. technical and industrial secrets.

    […]

    http://blog.washingtonpost.com/spy-talk/2010/09/israeli_spies_pitching_us_musl.html

    LOL at this one; it’s priceless. The FBI sheepeshly complain to their Mossad bosses while setting up Muslims patsies with plastic bombs in order to perpetuate the joint US/ISreal war of terror against the natural-resource rich countries of the Middle East and to justify their genocide.

    Mossad in America

    By Philip Giraldi

    Israeli government claims that it does not spy on the United States are intended for the media and popular consumption. The reality is that Israel’s intelligence agencies target the United States intensively, particularly in pursuit of military and dual-use civilian technology. Among nations considered to be friendly to Washington, Israel leads all others in its active espionage directed against American companies and the Defense Department. It also dominates two commercial sectors that enable it to extend its reach inside America’s domestic infrastructure: airline and telecommunications security. Israel is believed to have the ability to monitor nearly all phone records originating in the United States, while numerous Israeli air-travel security companies are known to act as the local Mossad stations.

    http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/mossad-in-america/

    Airlines? Did he really say airlines? As in 9/11 commercial jets going thru buildings airlines? Hmmm…

    • Kathleen on March 9, 2013, 2:12 pm

I am not one of those believers that the whole 9/11 tragedy was orchestrated. But do believe that Israeli agents here in the states monitoring the movements of the 9/11 attackers did not divulge all information they had access to to U.S. intelligence agencies

Just a couple of days ago, there was one big news item showing how Bank of America was using Isreali companies to “monitor” the internet for comments against them. Ha! What a monumental job considering the ire they’ve brought upon themselves. As someone well informed on the subject, you can fill in the blanks with the rest. These characters are so inbeded into American life it’s hard to find an area where their hands are not pulling the strings.
