Abbe D. Lowell was quoted in the November 3 issue of Haaretz in an article regarding the espionage trial of former AIPAC employees, Steven Rosen and Keith Weissman. Defense lawyers recently told a federal appeals court that they would argue some of the information the men allegedly conspired to reveal came from the Israeli government and was not considered secret. Mr. Lowell noted that a classified State Department document shows that Israel was already circulating the intelligence reports that Rosen is accused of disclosing. "You have to be able to prove what the Israelis knew. In our defense, it is important that this information, discussed down the line by our client, is Israel-based," said Mr. Lowell, Rosen's lawyer in the case.
