WASHINGTON, March 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Larry Klayman, founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch and former federal prosecutor, cited a front page story of March 2, 2015, in The Washington Post by Anne Gearan titled, "Clinton, Netanyahu Have a Complicated History." "One reason for this complicated relationship could be the likely complicit release by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton of classified information during a critical stage of the Iranian nuclear negotiations of Israeli war plans to eliminate the Iranian nuclear program," Klayman said.
"The likely reason for the release was to try to harm Israeli war plans. At the time, Israel was believed to have the will to launch a preemptive strike to eliminate the nuclear threat."
According to Klayman, documents obtained in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit show Secretary Clinton and her immediate staff likely leaked classified information to The New York Times reporter David Sanger, and coordinated those leaks with national security staff in the Obama White House. To date, Department of State has "stonewalled" the release of many documents, but Freedom Watch is currently before U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to force further release. Oral argument is scheduled early April (Case No. 14-5174).
Klayman issued this statement in light of the intense focus on deteriorating Israeli-American relations this week:
"President Obama and Hillary Clinton have done much to try to put a chink in the side of both Prime Minister Netanyahu and Israel so they could reach an under-the-table nuclear deal with Iran. This would include disclosing Israeli war plans and cyber-warfare sources and methods to prevent a preemptory strike. Both the President and former Secretary of State Clinton should be forced to legally come clean about his serious breach of national security. While whistleblowers like Edward Snowden are held out to dry and be prosecuted, higher-ups are left alone to release classified national security information when it suits their political purposes. This is one of the significant reasons why Israeli-American relations during the Obama administration have gone south."
