"Anonymous" sent me the following note concerning the case of Marcus Klingberg. I have separate corroborative confirmation of this story. Klingberg evidently was a great success in using his Mossad employment as an operational "base" for espionage in the US for his true masters. They were probably the Soviet Army's GRU. Representative Harman is reported to have been confronted with this case when she insisted recently to DoJ lawyers that there could be no harm to the US from Israeli efforts to obtain denied US information. pl
"Sources familiar with the FBI investigation of the AIPAC espionage case, say that the investigation is continuing even though the charges against Rosen and Weissman were dropped. Harman was interviewed by DoJ prosecutors after the Rosen/Weissman charges were dropped.
Sources indicate that based on multi-agency reports of Israeli espionage activities in the u.s. prior to 9/11, George Tenet as DCI ordered his senior staff to assemble for him a study of all the files available concerning the history of Israeli espionage activities in the US. The resulting study shocked him.
Among the many cases in the study two stood out. In addition to the damage reports on Jonathan Pollard's activities, there were files on another little known espionage case. Before the Pollard case, Israel claimed they had arrested a Soviet spy, who happened to also be the dep. dir. of Israel's TS ness-ziona bio/chem warfare facility located 16 miles from Tel Aviv. This man, Avraham Marcus Klingberg was also at that time a prof. of epidemiology at Tel Aviv Univ. Klingberg, a former Soviet army colonel was arrested and charged with spying for the USSR. The Israeli government has claimed that Klingberg suffered from mental illness and simply disappeared from a scientific conference in Switzerland in 1983. In fact, Israel arrested Klingberg and tried and sentence him in a secret tribunal in 1983.
In 1988 Hebrew language newspapers in NY reported that Klingberg had been arrested for spying for the USSR but that he was part of negotiations that would see him sent to the Soviet Union in a three nation swap that would see Pollard sent to israel from the US and the Soviet release of a few US agents, but the deal fell through. Any Israeli newspaper stories about Klingberg's arrest by Israel were blocked by Israeli military censors until 1993.
The Israelis informed the US Government that Klingberg confessed, but they withheld from the US something much more important. Klingberg had been, according to the report presented to Tenet, a Soviet/Israeli double-agent. While in the US, Klingberg received 20,000 pages of documents onUS biological warfare and dbiological defense programs from two scientists at Ft. Detrick, Maryland. The classified information passed from Ft. Detrick to Israel greatly advanced Israelis biological warfare work, including aerosolized weaponized Anthrax.
Klingberg was released to house arrest in 1098 due to his reportedly 'failing health'. He signed an agreement stating that he would never speak about his work. He also agreeded to have his telephones tapped by the Israeli defense ministry while under house arrest. On Jan 22, 1999 the Jerusalem Post reported that Shin Bet (Israeli counter-intelligence) wanted an Israeli judge to bar Klingberg from speaking Yiddish while under house arrest. Shin Bet could not find any guards/housekeepers for Klingberg who could understand Yiddish. A Beersheba district judge concured with Shin Bet and ordered him not to speak yiddish.
In 2003 klingberg was allowed to leave his house arrest and he moved to Paris where he lives with his daughter and grandson. In 2007 Klingberg authored his memoirs in Hebrew hameragel ha'akharon (the last spy)." Anonymous
