Much of what many of us know about Leandro Aragoncillo’s guilty plea last Thursday in New Jersey came from the Associated Press. Even the story which appeared on Page A3 of the Washington Post is an AP dispatch.
Paragraph 8 under the first charge struck me; it expands the scope of the alleged conspiracy. It seems the US justice department believes Aragoncillo actually sought jobs with the CIA and the NSA, too, as part of the overall plan.
8. It was part of the conspiracy that defendant Aragoncillo sought positions within the OVP, the FBI, the Central Intelligence Agency ("CIA") and the National Security Agency ("NSA") in order to maintain regular access to documents and information classified for reasons of national security that would be of use and interest to his Co-conspirators.
