A scientist who worked for the US Defense Department, a White House space counsel and other agencies was arrested Monday on espionage charges.
Department said Stewart David Nozette, 52, of suburban Chevy Chase, Maryland, was charged in a criminal complaint with attempting to communicate, deliver and transmit classified information to an individual he believed to be an Israeli intelligence officer.
The complaint does not allege that the government of Israel or anyone acting on its behalf violated US law.
Nozette was arrested Monday by FBI agents. He is expected to make his initial appearance in federal court in Washington on Tuesday.
In an affidavit supporting the complaint that was unsealed Monday, FBI agent Leslie Martell said that on September 3, Nozette received a telephone call from an individual purporting to be an Israeli intelligence officer. The caller was an undercover FBI agent.
Nozette agreed to meet with the agent later that day at a hotel in Washington and in the subsequent meeting the two discussed Nozette's willingness to work for Israeli intelligence.
Nozette allegedly informed the agent that he had, in the past, held top security clearances and had access to US satellite information, the affidavit said.
Nozette also was alleged to have said he would be willing to answer questions about this information in exchange for money. The affidavit said the agent explained that the Israeli intelligence agency, Mossad, would arrange for a communication system so Nozette could pass on information in a post office box.
Nozette agreed to provide regular, continuing information and asked for an Israeli passport, the government alleged.
And yet, Obama, HR Clinton, and the rest of them are going to open up all of our military nuclear facilities to the Russians (and ultimately the Chinese, cuz once the ruskies know it’s only a matter of time before the info gets disseminated to all of our “friends”) for them to go over with a fine-toothed comb.
Hell, why even have secrets anymore? Just give them away openly!
I got the message the first time.
You won't find a supporter of Johnathan Pollard here. He was actually working with the Israelis and his crime has been punished. He will never get out unlike the Terrorist let go by the Clinton Administration.
I just did not like the way northwinds phrased his response. It had a ring of antisemitism and I called him on it.
Just JEW HATING Miscreants.
If the accounts are true, then this man is a vile traitor, willing to sell his country out to the highest bidder. He should be given a fair trial, and then boiled in oil. Since it would be a great waste to let a good pot of boiling oil go to waste, I would favor pushing all of you in turn. I volunteer to be the pusher.
I don’t understand the link between using pronouns and you throwing a hissy fit.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Go see a psychiatrist... Preferably a Jewish one
>I just did not like the way northwinds phrased his response.
Oh I see; I’m dealing with an Abe Foxman race hustler type.
The Phrasing Police have arrived, watch out!
This has nothing to do with Israel.
Any time you feel like coming to kill me, better come well armed asshole!
Have you ever known a traitor? Have you ever had one who worked for you? I can answer yes to both questions. Most traitors don’t care if you are a Jew, a Communist, Al Qaida, or the Andrews Sisters. They will sell out their country in order to feed their pathological egos, their hatred for their country and for the institution that has placed them in a position of trust.
These people are scum. And any who support them, for whatever delusional reason, are no different.
Don't know what it means, if anything at all, with this sting arrest; but makes me go "hmmmmm."
Go ahead...name the traitor.... you can drop names around here
If you had bothered to read the article you will find that no spying was ever done. The man was entrapped
You don't understand? I will bet both Palin and Bachmann do.
Perhaps your ticket is really Wright-Farrakhan!
You sound more like Joe Biden!
You might want to reconsider what kinds of scum you defend. If you really think that this sub-human slime is worthy of your support, then I stand by my remarks.
If, on the otherhand, you acknowledge that you were attacking those who are today running the country and not defending this low life, then I will withdraw my remarks in your case and we can stand together arm in arm as Devil in Baggy Pants brothers.
For whatever reason they targeted him, he bit, so it doesn't matter.
The traitor was Clyde Conrad. And this scum deserves the same fate, as do you.
His attorney can make that arguement, but it's irrelevant, he's a traitor in the common rather than legal usage of the term. Hope he gets a great defense, and if guilty enjoys prison.
You left out money and sex.
