Keith Weissman, an Iranian affairs expert, was fired by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) in April 2004 and is awaiting trial in April 2006. [1]

On September 1, 2004, the New York Times reported that Weissman, along with fellow AIPAC employee Steve Rosen had been questioned regarding their involvement in an espionage case. Larry Franklin, a Middle East analyst at the Defense Intelligence Agency was alleged to have passed classified information about Iran to Rosen and Weissman, who in turn are accused of relaying the information to the government of Israel.
