U.S. officials are going to bat for five Israelis arrested after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The five men were arrested after they allegedly went up on the roof of a building and posed grinning for photographs with the burning World Trade Center towers in the background. The deputy secretary of state, Richard Armitage, and two U.S. congressman are trying to get the five released, according to Ha’aretz.
