U.S. man evades jail time in 'mysterious' case of spying for Israel

SS panzerfaust44 (2:45:20 PM): An 85-year-old former civilian employee of the U.S. Army was fined but avoided prison time on Friday after earlier pleading guilty to giving classified documents to Israel in the 1980s, in a case the sentencing judge said was "shrouded in mystery."

Court documents showed that Ben-Ami Kadish, who was fined $50,000 but spared prison time, reported to the same handler as Jonathan Pollard, an American who spied for Israel in the 1980s and triggered a scandal that rocked U.S.-Israeli relations.

"Why it took the government 23 years to charge Mr. Kadish is shrouded in mystery," U.S. District Judge William Pauley said during the sentencing hearing in Manhattan federal court. "It is clear the [U.S.] government could have charged Mr. Kadish with far more serious crimes."

    • There are other people around here with the power to delete comments, and many glitches and bugs that lead to posts disappearing.

      Just because a comment disappears doesn't mean the poster of the article had anything to do with it. I've had some of my own comments disappear from articles I posted and I can say with 100% certainty that I didn't delete them.

      If he did delete it and is lying about it then I agree he's a coward, but simply having the comment disappear doesn't mean he removed it h More..
