Abbe D. Lowell was quoted on May 14 by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency in an article regarding the classified information case brought by the government against former AIPAC employees Steve Rosen and Keith Weissman. As Rosen’s lawyer in the case, Mr. Lowell noted that, "The government put a lot of pressure on AIPAC and basically misled AIPAC on what it was that Keith and Steve did." He added, "I would like the community to rise up and, having seen all the public information, as a community start saying to the world, the Jewish world and the non-Jewish world, and the media, to the Justice Department and the attorney general: 'Reconsider. This is wrong. You made a mistake.' AIPAC and other groups that got snookered, they should admit they got snookered, and they should both embrace these men."
