Those who have been following the various aspects of Israel’s consequence free spying against the United States have no doubt noted that the AIPAC duo Rosen and Weissman apparently will be walking soon as the presiding judge has permitted testimony that will make it impossible for the prosecution to make its case. Most anyone could have predicted that it would turn out that way about three years ago and saved the government a lot of money. Nobody messes with AIPAC.
But what about Ben Ami Kadish, the “where’s Waldo” of international espionage? Kadish was very naughty in stealing those US defense secrets while working as an engineer at an arsenal in New Jersey. He was part of the same Israeli spy network that included Jonathan Pollard. Kadish was arrested last April, released on bail, and was to appear in court a month later, but nothing happened. He finally showed up at the end of December and pleaded guilty on reduced charges. He returned to his retirement home and was supposed to be sentenced on February 13th but I can find no record of a sentencing in the court website or in any media source. Has he disappeared again or did his get out of jail free card come in the mail? When he last appeared in court he wished everyone a Happy New Year.
