Sudan military leaders sign lobbying deal with notorious fixer

Ari Ben-Menashe was once an Israeli spy. More recently he worked for President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe.

Now, he says, for $6 million, he’ll try to get Sudan off the US terrorist list so he can provide the military government with weapons.
