NASA Mossad spy busted..."No wrongdoing by Israel"

ABC news gave this story 10 seconds tonight. They had to hurry up and get to the 'Balloon Boy' diversion.

The spin starts early. The FBI is saying that there is 'no wrongdoing by Israel?' Just an out of control spy trying to make a buck on the side?

How much money do we as taxpayers give to Israel each year? How many wars are we fighting for them right now? How long before we bomb Iran for them?

How many other spies/Mossad agents have infiltrated the depths of the U.S. war machine?

Nothing new here. Only a continuation of Israeli spying and stealing. And is the FBI actually making an effort to root out the traitors or is this just some sort of psyops?

We'll see.....

Stewart David Nozette, believed to be an Israeli intelligence officer, is charged with attempted spying for Israel.

U.S. scientist charged with attempted spying for Israel
WASHINGTON -- A top scientist who once worked for the Pentagon and the U.S. space agency was arrested on Monday and charged with attempted spying for Israel, the Department of Justice said.

Stewart David Nozette, 52, was snagged by a sting, in which he was called by an undercover agent from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the department said, adding there was no wrongdoing by Israel.

He is charged with "attempted espionage for knowingly and willfully attempting to communicate, deliver, and transmit classified information relating to the national defence of the United States to an individual that Mr. Nozette believed to be an Israeli intelligence officer."

The scientist, who was arrested in the Washington suburb of Chevy Chase, Md., and taken into custody, could make his first court appearance today on the charge, which carries a maximum sentence of life in prison.

"The conduct alleged in this complaint is serious and should serve as a warning to anyone who would consider compromising our nation's secrets for profit," said David Kris, assistant attorney general for national security.

Mr. Nozette developed an experiment that fueled the discovery of water on the south pole of the Moon, and previously held special security clearance at the Department of Energy on atomic materials.

In addition to stints with the National Aeronautics & Space Administration and the Energy department, he worked at the White House on the National Space Council during the presidency of George H.W. Bush in 1989 and 1990.

"From 1989 through 2006, Nozette held security clearances as high as top secret and had regular, frequent access to classified information and documents related to the U.S. national defence," the Justice Department (DOJ) said.

In early September, the suspect received a phone call from a person "purporting to be an Israeli intelligence officer, but who was in fact an undercover employee of the FBI," the DOJ said.

"Nozette met with the UCE [undercover employee] that day and discussed his willingness to work for Israeli intelligence," informing the agent "he had, in the past, held top security clearances and had access to U.S. satellite information."

At a meeting in a Washington hotel, the scientist claimed although he no longer had legal access to any classified information at a U.S. government facility, he could, nonetheless, recall the classified information to which he had been granted access, indicating it was all still in his head.

At the conclusion of this meeting, he allegedly informed the UCE, "Well I should tell you my first need is that they should figure out how to pay me ... they don't expect me to do this for free."

He also asked for an Israeli passport.

Court documents also show he was very interested in the amount of money he would be receive and when he could expect to get his first payment. He specified he preferred to receive cash amounts under $10,000 so he didn't have to report it.

Over the next several weeks, Mr. Nozette and the undercover agent exchanged envelopes of money for answers to lists of questions about U.S. satellite technology.

"In addition, Mr. Nozette allegedly offered to reveal additional classified information that directly concerned nuclear weaponry, military spacecraft or satellites, and other major weapons systems," DOJ said.

FBI agents retrieved a manila envelope he left in a designated location this month that "contained information classified as both top secret and secret that concerned U.S. satellites, early warning systems, means of defense or retaliation against large-scale attack, communications intelligence information, and major elements of defence strategy."

This was not Mr. Nozelle's first attempt to sell out his country, Bloomberg News reported.

From November 1998 through January 2008, he worked as a technical consultant for an aerospace company that was owned by the government of Israel.

Once a month, representatives of the company proposed questions to the scientist that he answered in return for payments totaling about US $225,000, according to a criminal complaint.

Dean Boyd, a Justice Department spokesman, declined to name the company.

What Did the Moon Scientist Spy Tell the Israelis" Some Clues
Oct 19 2009

There's nothing like a good, diverting spy scandal. The FBI today arrested an eminent space scientist, Stewart David Nozette, and charged him with espionage. He allegedly agreed to sell information about American nuclear weapons to an operative of Israel's Mossad -- only the agent turned out to be an uncover FBI agent. Nozette was the principal investigator on the NASA team that discovered water on the moon. But he spent years as a top scientist at the Department of Energy, where he specialized in satellite technology. From the FBI release, it's hard to figure out what he might have given the Israelis and what he tried to sell to the undercover agent. But his resume provides a clue.

Take it as a given that Israel's nuclear weapons stockpile and its half dozen nuclear facilities in the country are targets for U.S. espionage -- be it from the the SIGINT satellites tasked by the National Security Agency to the imagery satelittes run by the National Reconaissance Office. At the Pentagon's Ballistic Missile Defense Agency, Nozette ran a program that focused on dual-use nuclear compliance monitoring satellites. The Clementine satellite that discovered water on the moon was, before it was used by civilian scientists, a platform for a sohpisticated nuclear compliance sensor. Among the technologies that Clementine validated was a capacity to peer beneath the ground -- one of the ways that hidden water was discovered.

No doubt that Nozette would be in a good position to know how easily it is for U.S. technologies to pierce the veil of Israel's secret nuke program.

Nozette had a "Q" clearance from the Department of Energy, which gave him access to data about nuclear weapons themselves, which might have been of interest to the Israelis. More generally, though, since Israel has nuclear weapons, its espionage efforts are probably more directed towards figuring out what the U.S. knows about them, how the U.S. monitors, say, Israeli launch preparation sites, and who the U.S. shares this data with.

During the Reagan administration, Nozette was a special assistant to the Strategic Defense Initiative "Star Wars" program's Office of Survivability, Lethality and Key Technologies. {source}

The Israeli media also says "no wrongdoing by Israel," so it must be true.....


The complaint, unsealed Monday, does not allege that the government of Israel or anyone acting on its behalf violated U.S. law.


  1. I'm just a dumb Canadian gently prodding for all to embrace Freedom.
    This song should be your guys national anthem...
    With respect...
    h ttp://

  2. Can we just skip the portly Abe Foxman screaming 'anti-Semite' and have the traitor Jane Harman 'waddle' in and free the guy?

    Maybe toss in a couple hundred thousand for his time and trouble and a couple billion more to Israel for possible embarrassment.

    What the Israeli's are really looking for is ICBM technology that will allow them to deliver their nukes to anywhere in the world, even the USA.

    Why bother stealing the stuff?

    Just get some of your favorite 'bitches and hos' in Congress to hand it to you on a golden platter.

    I doubt that the FBI just randomly targeted this guy, he probably has already sold some of our technology to that nation that can do NO wrong.

  3. Just checked the NYT front page. Nothing about this Israeli spy, but they did have an article about the guy who wrote the "Addams Family" theme song dying!!!

  4. ...Nozette tells colleague that if the US Government tried to put him in jail (based on an unrelated criminal offense), Nozette would move to Israel or foreign country "A" and "tell them everything" he knows.

    6 Jan 2009: Traveled to a foreign country "A" with two computer thumb drives.

    28 Jan 2009: Returned to US without the two thumb drives.

    3 Sept 09: Nozette contacted via telephone by FBI undercover employee (UCE) posing as an Israeli Mossad officer. Nozette agrees to meet that day for lunch at a hotel on Connecticut Ave, NW, in Washington, DC. At meeting, Nozette discusses willingness to work for Israeli intelligence for money; tells UCE he had access to US satellite information. UCE arranges a communication system via a post office box and gives Nozette a 'clean phone'. Nozette agrees to provide regular, continuing information; asks for Israeli passport and the "Right of Return" because his parents are Jewish...

  5. Yeah, let's all ignore the BIG effing spy with access to America's defence systems, and focus on the balloon boy. You know that silly arse balloon boy story made it over here as well?

    This whole Zionist spy thing is repulsive; I can't imagine being an American and having my country so infiltrated at such high levels by Israel and my government doing nothing about it.

    Imagine if this guy had been Iranian, or a Muslim. We'd see endless coverage with much "speculation" and "Fear mongering" but since it's Israel it gets ignored, perhaps this is due to utter embarrassment by the US govt who cannot do anything about it.

    "but they did have an article about the guy who wrote the "Addams Family" theme song dying!!!"


  7. YOu ahve to love this. Israel has decided on a strategy for Goldstone. They are now going to attempt to change the rules of war and itnernatinal law that govens it, so that what they did in Gaza will be allowed. No shit! Psycho effing lunatic asshats
