Steve Rosen, recently terminated as the American Israel Public Affairs Committee's (AIPAC) policy director in the wake of an FBI investigation, expects to be indicted as soon as June, according to sources who know the case. Rosen has suggested to sources that if he were indicted, he would want an opportunity to clear his name. Rosen expects that a trial could begin as early as January 2006 and already is preparing for a long defense, according to multiple sources. Along with AIPAC's former senior Iran analyst, Keith Weissman, and former Pentagon Iran analyst Larry Franklin, Rosen has been targeted by the FBI's counterintelligence division for allegedly verbally passing classified information to Israel.
