Additional information about Richard Perle

He is an adamant supporter of Israel.

At present, he has access to all manner of classified information and "he's in the loop on war planning." (Marshall 12-17-2001)

He was investigated in 1980s for possible ties to the Israeli espionage case involving Jonathan Jay Pollard. (Steinberg 10-26-2001)

"An FBI summary of a 1970 wiretap recorded Perle discussing classified information with someone at the Israeli embassy. He came under fire in 1983 when newspapers reported he received substantial payments to represent the interests of an Israeli weapons company. Perle denied conflict of interest, insisting that, although he received payment for these services after he had assumed his position in the Defense Department, he was between government jobs when he worked for the Israeli firm." (Findley 1989, chapter 5; see also Saba 1984)
