Will AIPAC be Forced to File as 'Foriegn Agent'?



WASHINGTON = As the Department of Justice intensifies its investigation of
the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, Jewish communal leaders fear
that the goal of the probe is to compel the powerful lobbying organization
to register as a "foreign agent" representing the government of another
country.

Widely regarded as one of the most influential organizations on Capitol
Hill, Aipac is registered with Congress as a lobbying group. Under American
law, registering as a foreign agent would require Aipac to provide
significantly more detailed information about its aims and activities to
the government - thereby robbing the group of a key weapon: the ability to
operate behind the scenes..
