Neo-Con Gets 12 years for spying

Lawrence Franklin, a neo-con in the Defense Department, has been given a 12 and a half year sentence in jail for passing top secret information to Israel.

A former Pentagon analyst who gave classified information to an Israeli diplomat and two members of a pro-Israel lobbying group was sentenced Friday to more than 12 years in prison.

Lawrence A. Franklin, 59, a policy analyst whose expertise included Iraq and Iran, pleaded guilty in October to three felony counts in exchange for having three other counts dropped.

Another great Republican American.
