If Lieberman is involved, then this is Israel's way of guaranteeing that Congress will go along with sending your kids off to die in a war with Iran!
I was rather surprised when 60 Minutes covered the insider trading story especially just ahead of an election year, but now I see why they did it. It's the warning shot across the bow of Congress that their careers are over if they dare refuse to do support the war agenda!
If you want to know how Israel controls the US Government, this is a textbook example. Ignore, even encourage high level crimes, then use those crimes as leverage to force their actions.
