It’s a little too early to comment properly on the Israeli ‘mole’ story because the facts are still way, way too hazy. However, based on facts known to-date, two quick points:
- AIPAC knowingly taking a document which should not be in circulation from an employee of the Pentagon and passing it on, does not equal Israel running a spy or a mole
- If this is indeed what happened, the major story here is not Israel but AIPAC. Under such a scenario, the organization will have lost its power and credibility as a lobby in one fell swoop. It's hard to believe -- although not impossible to believe -- that such a politically astute organization would have knowingly cut its own throat.
