Meir Panim Gives the Gift of Camp to Hundreds of Impoverished Children.
An Israeli-American man caught in a sting operation trying to sell weapons to Taliban terrorists was sentenced on Wednesday to 25 years in prison.
Oded Orbach, 55, of Highland Park, Ill., was convicted in April of conspiring to provide material support to the Taliban and conspiring to acquire anti-aircraft missiles.
A U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency undercover operation caught seven men, including Orbach, who agreed to provide various military-grade weapons to an individual they believed to represent the Taliban. The weapons included heat-seeking surface-to-air missiles.
The men traveled to Africa, Ukraine and Romania in order to arrange a sale of $25 million in weapons, ammunition and training to the man they believed to be a Taliban official. They planned to make $800,000 on the deal, but were arrested in February 2011 in Romania and extradited to the United States to face trial.
