AIPAC Espionage

AIPAC, Espionage and the US-Israel Free Trade Agreement.

American industries were shocked when the FBI began investigating AIPAC for obtaining and distributing the 300 page report containing their trade secrets titled "Probable Economic Effect of Providing Duty Free Treatment for U.S. Imports from Israel, Investigation No. 332-180" in the midst of the negotiations. The ITC later confirmed that the Israeli government also obtained the still-classified report. The document contains business confidential trade secrets, market share, inventory, delivery costs, internal production costs and other highly sensitive data US industries submitted under strict confidence to urge the best possible outcome for US businesses.

The Shamelessness of Jane Harman.

... It looks like Harman, Frum, and the Lobby have won, after all — despite the mountains of evidence against Rosen and Weissman, and the protests of hardworking patriotic law enforcement officials who are dismayed and demoralized by the blank check our Justice Department is giving Israel to spy and steal our secrets with impunity. They leaked the dirt on Harman out of desperation, in the hope that popular outrage would prevent Israel’s American spies from beating the law and slithering back to their nests. /...

We already had the goods on Mdm. Speaker, her jaunt for "Congressional Fact Finding Mission", uh huhm a few good men, USMC escorting her to Abu Ghraib just in time for Nancy to go all atwitter witnessing, "Harsh Interrogation Techn....TORTURE!"
Damn who could forget, Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Act of 2007" Janie was the 1 and only sponsor of that 155 paged Bill aimed specifically at US, our flashing neon signs{the signs are to illustrate my pt} in a corridor to the left at JFK, a hall to the Left at LAX saying, "Have a safe trip! You've just left the USA." BHAM, Tazed, cuffed, hooded, thrown into an aircraft headed to, let's see hmm, Syria? 3

The senate never even voted on it.


This bill never became law. This bill was proposed in a previous session of Congress. Sessions of Congress last two years, and at the end of each session all proposed bills and resolutions that haven't passed are cleared from the books. Members often reintroduce bills that did not come up for debate under a new number in the next session.

Last Action: Oct 24, 2007: Received in the Senate and Read twice and referred to the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.

Related: See the Related Legislation page for other bills related to this one and a list of subject terms that have been applied to this bill. Sometimes the text of one bill or resolution is incorporated into another, and in those cases the original bill or resolution, as it would appear here, would seem to be abandoned.
