Top US scientist charged with trying to sell secrets to IsraelStewart Nozette, 52, developed an experiment that fuelled the discovery of water on the south pole of the moon, and held a special security clearance at the United States Department of Energy on atomic materials.
He has been charged with “attempted espionage for knowingly and wilfully attempting to communicate, deliver and transmit classified information relating to the national defence of the US to an individual that Nozette believed to be an Israeli intelligence officer,” the US Department of Justice said.
But the person Mr Nozette believed to be an Israeli intelligence officer was in fact an undercover FBI agent in a sting operation, the department said. The US government said there had been no breach of protocol by Israel, which has agreed not to spy on its ally.

He should also know that the FBI regularly tests security. There is no such thing as a rule against "entrapment" when you have a security clearance.
