Army Employee Admits to Being Israeli Spy . . . And Faces Five Years In Prison

660px-flag_of_israelsvg1In a little covered story, a former employee of the U.S. Army’s Armament Research, Development, and Engineering Center at the Picatinny Arsenal in Dover, New Jersey , Ben-Ami Kadish, pleaded guilty to being a spy for Israel and allowing an agent of the Government of Israel, Yossi Yagur, tp photographed secret papers at his home. Yet, he is only facing five years in prison. He spied for Israel from 1979-1985.

The Justice Department statement explains that “On numerous occasions from about 1980 through 1985, Kadish provided classified documents relating to the U.S. military – including some relating to U.S. missile defense systems – to an agent of the Government of Israel, Yossi Yagur, who photographed the documents at Kadish’s residence.”

Yague was the same Israeli agent involved with Jonathan Pollard.

It is unclear why other spies get life in prison while Kadish, 85, faced a maximum of five years under this plea agreement. Pollard got life.

He is scheduled to be sentenced in Manhattan federal court by U.S. District Judge William H. Pauley on February 13, 2009.

  1. In his book, The Shadow Factory, James Bamford lays out evidence of Israel’s domination as a spy agency to the world, how this is well known in intelleignece circles, and taken advantage of by the US govt. as it spies on its citizens and everyone else.

    “The agency responsible for worldwide eavesdropping in Israel is the hypersecret Unit 8200, that country’s NSA…According to a former chief of Unit 8200, both the veterans of the group and much of the high-tech intelligence equipment they developed are now employed in high-tech firms around the world.” What I just quoted is only a very small portion of the information found in Bamford’s book. (from page 243)

    Both the US and Israel has made an unholy alliance. We are not each other’s friends because friends don’t help friends do harmful things. A friend stands up and says, “that is wrong and you should stop what you’re doing immediately”.

  2. Through the years, Israel has regularly spied on the US. According to the Government Accounting Office, Israel “conducts the most aggressive espionage operations against the United States of any ally.” Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger said of Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard: “It is difficult for me to conceive of greater harm done to national security,” And the Pollard case was just the tip of a very large iceberg; the most recent operation coming to light involves two senior officials of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), Israel’s powerful American lobbying organization.

  3. AIPAC – Spies arrest from their ranks more than once and yet STILL allowed to lobby. WTF!

    Need I say more? Not really, but I retain the right to use rhetorical devices.

    Israel is not our friend. Well, maybe they are, but they are that crazy shit disturbing friend you hate to go out with because you know the night will likely end in a parking lot fight that your “friend” started more often than not. Usually over something stupid. Often the friend will pull a gun even if the other fighter is armed with only nail clippers.

    The only “ally” we’ve got that’s worse is Saudi Arabia. They are the kind of friend that if you go out with them, they’ll egg Israel and the crowd on and then stab you in the back while you’re trying to break up the knife fight. That’s after they’ve slashed your tires, peed in your beer and tried to buy your women by the way.

    Never forget who REALLY attacked us on 9/11.

    90% of the problems of the region could be eliminated with the removal of BOTH states from play. Maybe they BOTH should keep that in mind.

    It’s the new year.

    Don’t you kids make me get out of this chair.

  4. Have to agree with BuelahMan, Professor Turley. Different strokes for different folks.

  5. Aside from rare execption of my now 89 year old Dad signing a five year car lease at age 87 (gotta love that optimism), a five year sentence is going to be pretty darned close to life without the pssibility of parole for a man of 85. Though, as BuelahMan pointed out, he may never see a day behind bars for either his age or for some other reason.

  6. “It is unclear why other spies get life in prison while Kadish, 85, faced a maximum of five years under this plea agreement. Pollard got life.”

    Unclear, Jonathon?

    The Zionists in Israel own this country. You can tell by how we do anything and everything they require (like pay for their protection from those people that they have made enemies). The fact is that if it weren’t for America, the ME would have taken them out already and the world (including Israel) knows it.

    As bad as we are trying to install even more colonialist powers in the ME, Israel is still the only one who will completely allow it (they get too much money to rebel, yet). Even the cluster in Iraq will not end up with Iraqis as our colony (portion of Empire).

    Israel does whatever it wants and those who are connected to its leadership get preferential treatment.

    What do you bet he doesn’t even complete the 5 years?

    America needs to wake up and realize who our masters really are.
