A senior Israeli diplomat who had contact with the Pentagon analyst suspected of passing classified documents to Israel denied any wrongdoing. Naor Gilon, the No. 2 diplomat at the Israeli Embassy in Washington, told the Ma’ariv newspaper that he did nothing inappropriate in his meetings with the analyst, Larry Franklin. The FBI believes Franklin passed classified information about U.S. policy deliberations on Iran to AIPAC, and that the material then may have been passed to Israeli officials.
