The federal prosecutors in the case against two former AIPAC staffers for receiving classified information are trying to block testimony of the former head the government’s classification oversight office. They contend that William Leonard, who was director of the Information Security Oversight Office until last year, is barred from testifying as an expert for two years after leaving his post. His predecessor in the ISOO post, Steven Garfinkel, has also agreed to testify for the defense. (4/7/08)
