Additional information about Richard Perle
He is an adamant supporter of Israel.
At present, he has access to all manner of classified information and "he's in the
loop on war planning." (Marshall 12-17-2001)
He was allegedly investigated in 1980s for possible ties to the Israeli espionage
case involving Jonathan Jay Pollard. (Steinberg 10-26-2001)
"An FBI summary of a 1970 wiretap recorded Perle discussing classified
information with someone at the Israeli embassy. He came under fire in 1983
when newspapers reported he received substantial payments to represent the
interests of an Israeli weapons company. Perle denied conflict of interest, insisting
that, although he received payment for these services after he had assumed his
position in the Defense Department, he was between government jobs when he
worked for the Israeli firm." (Findley 1989, chapter 5; see also Saba 1984) http://184.108.40.206/search?q=cache:mERd1nijOdIC:www.cooperativeresearch.org/org
