Lawyers credit Obama team for dismissing AIPAC case
WASHINGTON (JTA) -- Lawyers for the two former AIPAC staffers charged four years ago with dealing in government secrets credited the Obama administration for dropping the case.

We are extremely grateful that this new Administration, in coordination with the U.S. Attorneys Office in Virginia, has taken seriously their obligation to evaluate cases on the merits and not to allow an unjust prosecution to continue solely due to momentum, said the joint statement by lawyers for Steve Rosen and Keith Weissman issued Friday, hours after the government filed for a dismissal of the charges against the two former senior staffers for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. This Administration truly shows that theirs is a Department of Justice, where the justice of any case can be re-evaluated and the government can admit that a case should not be pursued.

1. Must've been some leftover Republicans working on that case.
First Stevens, now the spies. Why hasn't Siegelman's case been overturned?
