A Maryland scientist busted in an FBI sting in 2009 for attempting to spy for Israel, pleaded guilty Wednesday in D.C. federal court to one count of attempted espionage, the Associated Press reported.

Stewart D. Nozette, 54, was charged in 2009 with giving sensitive government information to an undercover FBI agent posing as an Israeli intelligence officer with the Mossad.  In exchange, the agent paid him $11,000.

Nozette plea calls for a 13 year sentence, with two years credit for time served, AP reported.

In 2009, in a hotel room in Northwest Washington, Nozette told the undercover agent posing as a Mossad agent:

Nozette: I don’t get recruited by Mossad every day. I knew this day would come by the way.

 Agent: How’s that.

Nozette: (laughs) I just had a feeling one of these days.

Agent: Really?

 Nozette: I knew you guys would show up.

Nozette over the years worked for the Department of Energy, the Department of Defense and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

WASHINGTON — Two longtime veterans of the intelligence wars between Russia and the West say it’s inconceivable that the spies deported to Moscow Friday didn’t detect FBI surveillance years ago.

And that, they say, could explain why the FBI never produced evidence in court that the “illegals” had obtained any classified information: They stopped spying as soon as they discovered they were being watched — but stayed just busy enough to distract the FBI, potentially, from more important operations.

“If you’re under surveillance, you don’t do anything — you’re burnt,” said Victor Ostrovsky, a prominent former Mossad operative who said the lsraelis taught trainees about surveillance by studying real Russian spies at work. “You might as well pack yourself up slowly and go home.”

An American counterintelligence veteran said: “It does boggle the mind that they never allegedly picked up on any of the watchers nor learned of any of the technical ops run against them. It really is amazing.”
