Behind the AIPAC Probe, Neocons Seen Battling Rivals by Jefferson Morley

On one side of the conflict are neoconservative officials in the Pentagon who favor bold U.S. action to bring down Iran's theocratic government. On the other side, some see intelligence officials who view the neocons as too close to Israel.

In his piece, Blanche quotes Duncan Clarke of the American University's School of International Service in Washington as saying Israeli economic espionage has long "infuriated the US intelligence community, especially the FBI and the Customs Service." Duncan goes on to say that Israeli spying on the United States has "left a legacy of distrust" in the U.S. intelligence community.
