Rosen joins Middle East Forum


An ex-AIPAC staffer accused in a classified information case is working for a Middle East think tank.

Steve Rosen, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s former foreign policy director, is working for Middle East Forum, directed by conservative scholar Daniel Pipes. Rosen is to deliver a talk in New York next week on the implications of new governments in Israel and the United States for policy toward Iran.

Rosen’s indictment four years ago on charges of obtaining and disseminating classified information is still languishing in the system; a federal trial may take place in the first half of 2009.
