Reporters' Roundtable: The Murky Story of Anat Kamm

Reporter Josh Nathan-Kazis recently spoke with editor Jane Eisner and, via phone, with Washington-based staff writer Nathan Guttman about the murky story of Anat Kamm. A 23-year-old Israeli woman, Kamm is awaiting trial on espionage charges, stemming from allegations that she leaked classified Israeli military documents to a newspaper reporter. In this podcast, Forward staffers take a look at what’s known about the contents of the documents at issue, at the case’s similarities to America’s Pentagon Papers leak during the 1970s, and at how the Kamm affair has impacted the relationship between the Israeli government and the Israeli press.
