YOU COULDN’T MAKE THIS STUFF UP IF YOU TRIED

15 02 2008

And nobody would believe you if you did.  I’ve been delving deeper into the Sibel Edmunds case, and as far as I can tell, this is what she found:

Neocons in the US government were helping the Turks and Israelis steal US nuclear secrets and sell them to the Pakistanis, who moved them on to Saudi Arabia, Iran, North Korea, and the various Central Asian “republics.”  They also helped sell stolen/surplus NATO weaponry–everything from helicopters to RPGs–to various militia groups in the Middle East, as well as bringing the heroin these groups produce into Europe to finance themselves.

In other words, they were helping  create the “terrorist problem” that they have been so eager to curtail our civil liberties in order to fight.  Does that extend to fomenting the 9-11 attacks?  I wonder, especially in light of the revelation that Pakistani intelligence chief Mahmoud Ahmad had $100,000 sent to Mohammed Atta, the alleged head of the 9-11 hijackers, shortly before the attack.  (I wonder why somebody who is about to die would need that kind of money?  Well, there’s payments to bereaved families, and then there’s bribes, bribes, bribes…..)

Ms. Edmunds has been under a gag order in this country because the government alleges that what she has (and has not yet, in some cases) revealed compromises US security.  It certainly should make a lot of neocons feel insecure, because it reveals that they ought to be tried for treason.  I think that’s what government officials who sell nuclear secrets get tried for, isn’t it?  Is it still a hanging offense?   Hey now, I’m against capital punishment.  I just want to know some big hulking con has made Richard Perle his bitch…

The mainstream media in this country have not touched this story, and the Democrats won’t investigate it, probably because it leads back to Israel, and  one of the basic rules of politics in this country is to never make Israel look bad.

Here’s an excerpt from an article by  former CIA agent Philip Giraldi, published in, of all places, The American Conservative:

The ATC, founded in 1994 and modeled on the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, was intended to promote Turkish interests in Congress and in other public forums. Edmonds refers to ATC and AIPAC as “sister organizations.” The group’s founders include a number of prominent Americans involved in the Israel-Turkey relationship, notably Henry Kissinger, Brent Scowcroft, Richard Perle, Douglas Feith, and former congressman Stephen Solarz. Perle and Feith had earlier been registered lobbyists for Turkey through Feith’s company, International Advisors Inc. The FBI was interested in ATC because it suspected that the group derived at least some of its income from drug trafficking, Turkey being the source of 90 percent of the heroin that reaches Europe, and because of reports that it had given congressmen illegal contributions or bribes. Moreover, as Edmonds told the Times, the Turks have “often acted as a conduit for the Inter-Services Intelligence, Pakistan’s spy agency, because they were less likely to attract attention.”

And here are excerpts from the articles in the London Times, the first from Jan. 6:

“What I found was damning,” she said. “While the FBI was investigating, several arms of the government were shielding what was going on.”

The Turks and Israelis had planted “moles” in military and academic institutions which handled nuclear technology. Edmonds says there were several transactions of nuclear material every month, with the Pakistanis being among the eventual buyers. “The network appeared to be obtaining information from every nuclear agency in the United States,” she said.

They were helped, she says, by the high-ranking State Department official who provided some of their moles – mainly PhD students – with security clearance to work in sensitive nuclear research facilities. These included the Los Alamos nuclear laboratory in New Mexico, which is responsible for the security of the US nuclear deterrent.

Two weeks later, the Times continued the series:

The anonymous letter names a high-level government official who was allegedly secretly recorded speaking to an official at the Turkish embassy between August and December 2001.

It claims the government official warned a Turkish member of the network that they should not deal with a company called Brewster Jennings because it was a CIA front company investigating the nuclear black market. The official’s warning came two years before Brewster Jennings was publicly outed when one of its staff, Valerie Plame, was revealed to be a CIA agent in a case that became a cause célèbre in the US.

And here’s a tidbit from the most recent installment, Jan. 27th:

The FBI denied the existence of a specific case file about any outing of Brewster Jennings by the State Department official, in a response to a freedom of information request. However, last week The Sunday Times obtained a document, signed by an FBI official, showing that the file did exist in 2002.

Much thanks to Sibel Edmonds for bringing facts to the murky world of presumed conspiracy.  I wish her health, freedom, a long life, and protection from the many powerful people who are likely plotting her demise even as I write these words.
