Judge subpoenas Rice, other officials in AIPAC spy case

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and other senior US intelligence officials will be subpoenaed to discuss their talks with pro-Israel lobbyists, a federal judge ruled Friday in an espionage case. Lawyers for two former American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) lobbyists facing espionage charges have subpoenaed Rice, National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley, Deputy National Security Adviser Elliott Abrams and several others to testify at their trial next year. Prosecutors had challenged the subpoenas in federal court.
