Spies Update

     The Christian Science Monitor has an update on the Israel spying case.  You might recall that a former Office of Special Plans loony, Franklin, was filmed meeting with an Israeli governmental offical and a couple top AIPAC people, then was co-operating (admitting he had handed over some documents), and then was not cooperating (new lawyer).  At the bottom of the CSM peice is information about the new charges, which concern Israeli industrial spying.

     The Saint Petersburg Times has a cute little quote about the National Endowment for Democracy, to wit

They appear to be the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), an organization well known to our special services. NED has never hidden its friendly relations with the CIA.

     Got this stuff CI Centre, which has politics I wasn't quite able to divine.  They seem to link only to uncritical peices on the Intel Reorg bill, but I haven't dug enough.
