Jane Harman and the Israeli Spy

This story smells a bit funny, and Ron Kampeas points out why:

There are a lot of problems with how this story came about. Its sources seem to have it in for Harman, yet their supposedly damning leaks are rehash - and the story's major news is not about her alleged misdeeds, but that the National Security Agency was listening in on her call, and that the CIA boss wanted to get a tap on her.

Also, the timing, weeks before the trial, is supect, and looks a lot like a desperate late in the game bid to salvage what has become a dog of a case.

Also, Haim Saban is an Israeli spy? Really? He's Israeli, yes, but a spy? This is what is being intimated, at least.
