"I knew it! The NSA was not the agency tapping Rep. Jane Harman's calls"
"The NSA story never made any sense."
"The only other agency that has authority to place wiretaps on calls inside the United States is the Justice Department. It requires court approval."

I will bump it.
Pelosi knew about the wiretap just like she knew about the waterboarding and what it implied.
Hitlery and her friends at Justice.
More FBI file gathering possibly.
CIRCA 2006 An internet search on AIPAC and the case against Cong Jane Harman may go a lot deeper, and even be related to the staffer who leaked the NSA material. AIPAC's sub rosa activities have gone on for some time.
Important new details of the U.S.-Israeli espionage case involving Larry Franklin, the alleged Pentagon spy, two officials of the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee, and an intelligence official at the Embassy of Israel emerged just last week (circa 2006).
Two AIPAC officialswho are said to have left the organization but may still be drawing salarieswere indicted along with Franklin on charges of "communicat[ing] national defense information to persons not entitled to receive it."
In plain English, that means spying.
But as the full text of the indictment makes clear, the conspiracy involved not just Franklin and the AIPAC officials, Steve Rosen and Keith Weissman, but at least several other Pentagon officials who played intermediary roles, at least two other Israeli officials, and one official at a "Washington, D.C. think tank."
It's an old-fashioned spy story involving the passing of secret documents, hush-hush meetings and outright espionage, along with good-old-boy networking. But the network tied to the "Franklin case"which ought to be called the "AIPAC case," since it was AIPAC that was really under investigation by the FBIprovides an important window into a shadowy world.
It is clear that by probing the details of the case, the FBI has got hold of a dangerous loose end of much larger story.
By pulling on that string hard enough, the FBI and the Justice Department might just unravel that larger story, which is beginning to look more and more like it involves the same nexus of Pentagon civilians, White House functionaries, and American Enterprise Institute officials who thumped the drums for war in Iraq in 2001-2003 and who are now trying to whip up an anti-Iranian frenzy, as well.
The only other agency that has authority to place wiretaps on calls inside the United States is the Justice Department. It requires court approval.The leaking of this information was done in order to let everyone know that cooperation with and support of Israel isn't going to be accepted by the White House Obamanazis.
