WASHINGTON (VINnews) — Dr. David A. Tenenbaum, Author of Accused of Treason: The US Army’s Witch Hunt for a Jewish Spy, is a civilian mechanical engineer who works for the Army at the TACOM base in Warren, Michigan. In 1997, he was falsely accused of being an Israeli spy—and having dual loyalty to the State of Israel by a known anti-Semite and several other anti-Semitic coworkers, simply because he is Jewish. These people referred to Tenenbaum as the “little Jewish spy.”
The FBI conducted a full-scale criminal investigation of Tenenbaum and his family. It resulted in an official report to FBI Director Louis Freeh, that there was no evidence Tenenbaum had ever done anything wrong. In fact, Tenenbaum was not even working on classified programs. Instead, he was concentrating on an approved and unclassified program known as the Light Armor Systems Survivability (LASS), whoch focused on up-armoring the Army’s HMMWVs. Tenenbaum’s research was important, because it was a known fact that the HMMWVs were death traps at the time.
The Tenenbaums’ federal lawsuit for religious discrimination was dismissed after the Army falsely claimed that they “would not be able to disclose the actual reasons or motivations for their actions without revealing state secrets.” Senator Carl Levin ordered the IG-DOD to investigate the Tenenbaum case and determine if the Army was guilty of anti-Semitism. After over two years, the IG-DOD issued a report which confirmed that the US Army was guilty of anti-Semitism.
To this day, the Army refuses to make Tenenbaum whole and compensate him for the false accusations against him. Tenenbaum is one of the only persons for whom a favorable Inspector General report has been issued to not be compensated. The government has never been held accountable for their anti-Semitism.

Today, Alan and Baila from the VINnews podcast ‘The Definitive Rap’ sat down with both Dr. David Tenenbaum himself and Attorney Daniel Meyer, to discuss this shocking story.
In the interview, investigator Meyer tells us how we can pressure members of Congress to open an official investigation into this incredible miscarriage of justice.
Dr. Tenenbaum’s book ‘Accused of Treason‘ is a page turner, and will shock you as you read how an Orthodox Jewish man was specifically targeted by anti-semitic superiors and co-workers.
