Charges Dismissed

Prosecutors have dismissed all charges against two former pro-Israel lobbyists accused of disclosing U.S. defense secrets, ending a four-year legal saga. During that time former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and other Bush administration supporters had to take the witness stand. At the heart of Keith Weissman’s and Steven Rosen’s case was the question of whether secret negotiations and discussions between government officials, lobbyists and reporters are legal.
