How LONG has he been spying?

WASHINGTON – A Maryland scientist who worked for the Defense Department, a White House space council and other agencies was arrested Monday on espionage charges.

The Justice Department said Stewart David Nozette, 52, of Chevy Chase, 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 U.S. 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 Sept. 3, Nozette received a telephone call from an individual purporting to be an Israeli intelligence officer. The caller was an undercover FBI agent.

  • Just because you'r ok with the people of Israel doesn't mean there aren't criminals there. Why would they spy on their allies?

  • America has historically been allied to Israel, but still wants her to "behave".

    Israel knows this, and may even be suspicious of the current administration, iffy as they are.

    They are.
