Fired Jewish CIA attorney asks Clinton to intervene

"Mr. Ciralsky was unjustly singled out for investigation and subsequently interrogated, harassed, surveilled and terminated from employment with the CIA solely because he is a Jew and he practices the Jewish religion," the complaint filed to the court reads.

Documents released by the CIA in July 1998 include one that describes Ciralsky as a "rich Jewish" employee with a "wealthy daddy." Another describes Ciralsky and other Jewish-Americans as "pro-Israel baggage." Other records detail Ciralsky's and his family's monetary support for the United Jewish Appeal, a practice that the documents claimed paint Ciralsky "and his family as extreme supporters of Israel's hard liners in the Likud party."

A CIA spokeswoman declined to comment on the case, while denying all charges of discrimination.
