US Secretary of State Subpoenaed
Two pro-Israel lobbyists are accused of passing classified information to government officials and journalists in Israel. A federal judge has ordered US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and other senior colleagues to testify at their trial. Her court appearance could shed light on American policy making in the Middle East. The lobbyists say they were regularly asked by the US government to give information to the Israelis. They are accused of passing secrets obtained from a since convicted Pentagon official to government officials and media outlets in Israel.
