Sibel Edmonds Case: The Real Culprits Of 9/11

Former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds has made a number of disturbing claims about the 911 attacks, but perhaps the most disconcerting is her oft-repeated statement that the US authorities have covered up an entire organizational layer within al-Qaeda. In the documentary, Kill The Messenger, Sibel says:

"They haven't mentioned anybody who actually is connected to Al Qaida, in mid or higher level."

Similarly, Sibel often says:
"And I would like to give an analogy - if you take the War on Drugs, imagine if they only went after street dealers and they refused to investigate the mid-level dealers or the drug lords. This is very similar."

As we approach another 911 anniversary, it's time we learnt:
1) Who are these mid and high-level al-Qaida operatives?
2) What role did they play in planning 911?
3) What operational support did they provide?
4) Why they are still roaming free today?
5) Why did the US authorities continually exclude key participants from the official narrative?

Sibel Edmonds is the most gagged woman in US history making it a little it difficult for us, the public, to have a detailed understanding of everything she knows about al-Qaida and the 911 attacks, but she has given interviews and written a number of great articles and letters which enable us to put some of the pieces together. Immediately after the release of the 911 Commission report, Sibel wrote an open letter to Thomas Kean and the Commission in which she chided the 911 Commission panel for ignoring important issues related to the attacks, and she also made public some of her closed-door testimony to the 911 Commission. For example, in that letter, Sibel identified specific warnings from April 2001 that:
"1) Osama bin Laden was planning a major terrorist attack in the United States targeting four or five major cities;
2) the attack was going to involve airplanes;
3) some of the individuals in charge of carrying out this attack were already in place in the United States;
4) the attack was going to be carried out soon, in a few months."

As we all know, this information was not included in the Commission report, and was barely mentioned in the US media even though it was confirmed in the Chicago Tribune and FBI Director Robert Mueller was surprised that he wasn't asked about it by the 911 Commission. In fact, according to Sibel,  "(A)fter 9/11 the agents and the translators were told to "keep quiet" regarding this issue." More importantly, for today's purposes, I want to focus on this statement from the same letter:

"The public has still not been told of the intentional obstruction of intelligence. The public has not been told that certain information, despite its relevance to terrorist activities, is not shared with counterterrorism units. This was true prior to 9/11, and it remains true today. If counterintelligence receives information about terrorism that implicates certain nations, semi-legit organizations or the politically powerful in this country, then that information is not shared with counterterrorism, regardless of the consequences. In certain cases, frustrated FBI agents have cited "direct pressure by the State Department." The Department of Justice Inspector General received detailed evidence regarding this issue. I provided your investigators with an account of this issue, the names of other witnesses willing to corroborate this, and the names of U.S. officials involved in these transactions and activities."

In order to understand this, we need to understand a little bit about how the FBI operates. 'Counterintelligence' (CI) is essentially a monitoring organization which routinely investigates various groups - such as embassies, and groups like AIPAC and the American Turkish Council (ATC) - which might be involved in criminal activity, or otherwise might be able to provide valuable information. If and when CI comes across evidence of criminality, they are supposed to forward that information and evidence to other divisions of the FBI which have the authority, and responsibility, to act on the information and arrest the guilty parties. Typically the cases will be forwarded to, for example, Public Corruption, or Narcotics, or in this case, Counter Terrorism (CT). As Sibel indicates, prior to 911, the State Department put pressure on people at FBI HQ to block the transfer of certain cases to the actionable divisions within the FBI. Outrageously, even immediately after 911, the State Department continued to refuse CI permission to pass significant information to Counter-terrorism that was directly relevant to the 911 attacks. In other words, while the Bush administration was rushing through the PATRIOT ACT, rounding up thousands of 'suspects' and gutting the Constitution, the State Department was protecting many of the key participants in the mass murder on 9/11 in order to protect 'sensitive diplomatic relations.'

Here's Sibel describing the cover-up:
"What occurred with the 911 related investigation - be it the FBI, or the Department of Defense, or the Department of State, or the CIA or the Pentagon - they choose to basically publicize the deal at the hijacker level - and completely went about covering up certain entities that they had DIRECT evidence, DOCUMENTED evidence of the support networks - be it the financial support networks, or communications, or obtaining visas - they have not touched those individuals. Those individuals are still roaming free! Today!"

And here's Sibel again, making the same point:
"I will give you an analogy, okay? Say if we decided to have a "war on drugs," but said in the beginning, "right, we're only going to go after the young black guys on the street level..." But we decided never to go after the middle levels, let alone the top levels... It's like this with the so-called war on terror. We go for the Attas and Hamdis – but never touch the guys on the top." Which people are Sibel talking about? Sibel is talking about three different, though often over-lapping, groups of:
a) Those who were directly involved in planning and/or facilitating the 911 attacks,
b) Those who knowingly, specifically, intentionally provided and facilitated 'indirect' support functions for the attacks
c) Those who support and finance al-Qaeda generally.

Let's begin at the highest level. In Sibel's "THE HIGHJACKING OF A NATION - Part 1" she quotes Senator Bob Graham's numerous statements that Saudi Arabia's support for some of the 911 hijackers has been hidden in the redacted 27 pages of the congressional inquiry's final report into 911. Sibel notes:
"What Graham is trying to establish in his book and previous public statements in this regard, and doing so under state imposed 'secrecy and classification', is that the classification and cover up of those 27 pages is not about protecting 'U.S. national security, methods of intelligence collection, or ongoing investigations,' but to protect certain U.S. allies. Meaning, our government put the interests of certain foreign nations and their U.S. beneficiaries far above its own people and their interests. While Saudi Arabia has been specifically pointed to by Graham, other countries involved have yet to be identified." (emphasis mine)

In various other interviews and articles, Sibel gives us some clues as to which 'other countries' she is pointing to. For example, in this 2006 interview, Sibel says, "We're not just talking about - as they say - Saudi Arabia and Egypt - but they have glossed over the involvement of certain entities within other countries - such as Turkey, Pakistan, Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan - many Central Asian countries. They have absolutely covered up the involvement of certain entities - it's not necessarily only governmental - from these other countries - Central Asia - they call it "Sensitive Diplomatic Relations' - you know they are putting (military) bases there.

Please note that not only is the US establishing military bases in these countries, these countries are generally:
1) Major customers for US military hardware
2) US 'allies'
3) Anti-democracy, anti-freedom, police states
4) Major players in the heroin trade
5) Supporters of various terrorist activity

Sibel describes the US' hypocrisy (if that's the correct descriptor), particularly as it relates to Turkey, in The Highjacking of a Nation: Part 2: "Curiously enough, despite these highly publicized reports and acknowledgments of Turkey's role in these activities (Ed: nuclear black market, heroin trafficking, illegal arms sales), Turkey continues to receive billions of dollars of aid and assistance annually from the United States. With (Turkey's) highly placed co-conspirators and connections within the Pentagon, State Department and U.S. Congress, Turkey never has to fear potential sanctions or meaningful scrutiny; just like Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. The criminal Turkish networks continue their global criminal activities right under the nose of their protector, the United States, and neither the catastrophe falling upon the U.S. on September Eleven, nor their direct and indirect role and ties to this terrorist attack, diminish their role and participation in the shady worlds of narcotics, money laundering and illegal arms transfer.

The 'respectable' Turkish companies established and operate bases in Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan and other similar former Soviet states. Many of these front companies, disguised under construction and tourism entities, have received millions of dollars in grants from the U.S. government, allocated to them by the U.S. congress, to establish and operate criminal networks throughout the region; among their networking partners are Al Qaeda, the Taliban, and the Albanian Mafia. While the U.S. government painted Islamic charity organizations as the main financial source for Al Qaeda terrorists, it was hard at work trying to cover up the terrorists' main financial source: narcotics and illegal arms sales. Why?"  In summary, certain US allies protect a bunch of organizations which support al Qaeda and the Taliban. Despite this, these organizations, and their host countries, are protected by the US government under the guise of protecting 'sensitive diplomatic relations' and "protecting certain foreign business relations." When Sibel first began claiming publicly that the US was covering up the role of certain allies in 911, her claims sounded so outrageous that she was largely dismissed. In 2007 it has become accepted fact. For example, when Presidential hopeful Barack Obama states that Pakistan, a US ally, is protecting Osama bin Laden, there is no about about whether this is true or not, only what to do about it. Similarly, Senator Bob Graham says in his book: "It was as if the President's loyalty lay more with Saudi Arabia than with America's safety."

Some Specific Examples of Hiding the Culprits
In this section, I'll take a look at some examples of organizations and individuals that were believed by the FBI to have played roles in 911 but have escaped any accountability.

American Turkish Council (ATC)
The ATC is a mini-AIPAC - a lobbying group where Turkey's business and military leaders interface with America's finest; current politicians from both parties, CEOs from the Military Industrial Complex (MIC), and former high-level officials acting as lobbyists. The ATC was being monitored by FBI counterintelligence (as well as CIA counterintelligence (Brewster Jennings)) and much of the information that Sibel learned is believed to have come from the surveillance of the ATC. Sibel says that the ATC is essentially a front organization for various criminal activity - ranging from nuclear black market, heroin trafficking and illegal arms sales - and was being "monitored in a 9/11 investigation." Despite the ATC's role in all of this criminal activity, it is demonstrably untouchable and is alive and well today. In fact, Sibel goes as far as to say that the ATC is basically a representative arm of the U.S. government, lobbyists, foreign agents, and the MIC. It's not a surprise, therefore, that the ATC has some type of informal 'protected' status, and that the FBI can't act on any of the information uncovered in any of the counter-intelligence operations.

Melek Can Dickerson
Dickerson joined the FBI in October 2001 as a Turkish translator. She had previously worked at the ATC and two other organizations that were the targets of FBI counterintelligence. Almost immediately, Dickerson began engaging in various espionage activities including attempting to recruit Sibel and other translators into the espionage ring, intentionally covering up FBI evidence which implicated her friends at the ATC and elsewhere, stealing documents and leaking them to her friends, and falsifying "top-secret documents related to 9/11 detainees" in an attempt to falsely exonerate her guilty associates. Sibel's claims regarding Dickerson were investigated and validated by the FBI. Remarkably, Dickerson was allowed to keep her Top Secret clearance, and was allowed to continue translating Top Secret information regarding her friends and associates, including 911 investigations, for another 6 months until she fled the US.

Top Targets of 911 Investigation
Melek Can Dickerson and her husband, USAF Major Doug Dickerson, offered to introduce Sibel to some of their friends, including two Turkish guys who belonged to the ATC and worked out of the Turkish embassy in DC. According to Sibel, "These two people were the top targets of our investigation!" For one reason or other, these two (and maybe more) "top targets" of the 911 investigation were allowed to leave the US in mid-2002 without ever having even been interviewed. Prior to Robert Mueller's testimony at the 911 Commission, Sibel prepared a list of questions for the Commissioners to ask Mueller including: "Director Mueller, is it true that several top targets of FBI investigations, related to support networks of terrorist activities, were allowed to leave the United States, months after the 9-11 attacks, without ever being questioned? Why?" That question remains unanswered.

"Blueprints, pictures and building material for skyscrapers"
Another case that was apparently ignored by the US authorities was a mid-2001 wiretap that Sibel translated of a prisoner who had been arrested on narcotics charges. The FBI agents suspected that he might be involved in terrorism-related activity and wiretapped his phone calls from prison. In one phone call, this individual organized for blueprints, photos & details of the building material of the World Trade Center to be sent to (presumably) the authors of the 911 atacks who were hiding in a remote border location somewhere in the Middle East. The wiretap also "revealed illegal activities in obtaining visas from certain embassies in the Middle East through network contacts and bribery."

Immediately after 911, another wiretap captured this same individual congratulating an associate on the successful attack. Who was this individual? Who did he phone to deliver the blueprints? Was he a mastermind of 911? Was he acting on his own initiative? If not, at whose behest (and why was he doing from jail?)? Who was he congratulating? We don't know the answer to any of these questions. In fact, in July 2002, FBI Director Robert Mueller "maintained... that the 19 al-Qaida hijackers operated independently in the U.S. and were an isolated case" telling the joint congressional 911 inquiry:  "As far as we know, the (hijackers) contacted no known terrorist sympathizers in the United States," Mueller was effectively lying (although he may have technically given himself wiggle-room). As Sibel said, the US authorities "completely went about covering up certain entities that they had DIRECT evidence, DOCUMENTED evidence of the support networks - be it the financial support networks, or communications, or obtaining visas... They have absolutely covered up the involvement of certain entities - it's not necessarily only governmental - from these other countries" Of course, it's not just Mueller who knows what Sibel knows. I'll finish with two more quotes. The first is from an interview with Chris Deliso

Deliso: You think they [the government] know who they are, the top guys, and where?

Sibel: Oh yeah, they know.

Deliso: So why don't they get them?

Sibel: It's like I told you before – this would upset "certain foreign relations." But it would also expose certain of our elected officials, who have significant connections with high-level drugs- and weapons-smuggling – and thus with the criminal underground, even with the terrorists themselves.

And finally, in Kill The Messenger, Sibel says:
"I am not the only one who knows about this. Too many people know this! The fraudulent 9/11 Commissioners, every single one of them knows about my case and the details, and the names, and all the specifics. Several people within the U.S Congress do know. Everybody in the FBI, involved, they know! Everybody in Department of Justice, they know! My goal has been exposing the criminal activities: money laundering, narcotic activities, and nuclear black market, converging with terrorist activities. Put out the tapes, put out the wiretaps! Put out those documents! Put out the truth! The truth is going to hurt them, the truth is going to set me free!"

Everybody knows except us. It's time we knew.

Let Sibel Edmonds Speak: Call Waxman. Demand public open hearings:
DC phone: (202) 225-3976
LA phone: 323 651-1040
Capitol switchboard phone: 800-828-0498
All eyes are opened, or opening, to the rights of man. The general spread of the light of science has already laid open to every view the palpable truth, that the mass of mankind has not been born with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few booted and spurred, ready to ride them legitimately

BLOGGED BY Brad Friedman ON 10/29/2007 5:30AM 
http://www.bradblog.com/?p=5197



EXCLUSIVE: FBI Whistleblower Sibel Edmonds Will Now Tell All - and Face Charges if Necessary - to Any Major Television Network That Will Let Her
She's Prepared to Name Names, Including Those of Two 'Well-Known' Congress Members Involved in Criminal Corruption
The 'Most Gagged Person in U.S. History' Tells The BRAD BLOG She's Now Exhausted All Other Channels...

-- By Brad Friedman

Attention CBS 60 Minutes: we've got a huge scoop for you. If you want it.

Remember the exclusive story you aired on Sibel Edmonds, originally on October 27th, 2002, when she was not allowed to tell you everything that she heard while serving as an FBI translator after 9/11 because she was gagged by the rarely-invoked "States Secret Privilege"? Well, she's still gagged. In fact, as the ACLU first described her, she's "the most gagged person in the history of the United States of America."

But if you'll sit down and talk with her for an unedited interview, she has now told The BRAD BLOG during an exclusive interview, she will now tell you everything she knows.

Everything she hasn't been allowed to tell since 2002, about the criminal penetration of the FBI where she worked, and at the Departments of State and Defense; everything she heard concerning the corruption and illegal activities of several well-known members of Congress; everything she's aware of concerning information omitted and/or covered up in relation to 9/11. All of the information gleaned from her time listening to and translating wire-taps made prior to 9/11 at the FBI.

Here's a handy bullet-point list, as we ran it in March of 2006, for reference, of what she's now willing to tell you about.

"People say, 'why doesn't she just come forward and spill the beans?' I have gone all the way to the Supreme Court and was shut down, I went to Congress and now consider that shut down," she told The BRAD BLOG last week when we spoke with her for comments in relation to our story on former House Speaker Dennis Hastert's original attempt to move a resolution through the U.S. House in 2000 declaring the 1915 massacre of 1.5 million ethnic Armenians in Turkey as "genocide."

"Here's my promise to the American Public: If anyone of the major networks --- ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, FOX --- promise to air the entire segment, without editing, I promise to tell them everything that I know," about everything mentioned above, she told us.

"I can tell the American public exactly what it is, and what it is that they are covering up," she continued. "I'm not compromising ongoing investigations," Edmonds explained, because "they've all been shut down since."


"She's Very Credible"

She has, in fact, spent years taking every reasonable step to see that the information she has goes through the proper channels. The Supreme Court refused to hear her whistleblower lawsuit, even in light of the Department of Justice forcing the removal of both her and her own attorneys from the courtroom when they made their arguments concerning why it was that she still had to remain gagged under the "States Secrets Privilege."

On the morning that the SCOTUS refused to hear her case, the facade cracked on the front of the building. In a ridiculously ironic metaphor which would have been rejected by any credible screen-writer, a chunk of marble --- just above an allegorical statue representing "Order" and just below the words "Equal Justice" --- came crashing to the ground.

She has met with, and told her story to, U.S. senators including Republican Charles Grassley and Democrat Patrick Leahy, both of the Senate Intelligence Committee, both who found her extremely credible. 60 Minutes producers may remember when Grassley told them, "Absolutely, she's credible...And the reason I feel she's very credible is because people within the FBI have corroborated a lot of her story."

In fact, the FBI itself has done so. Their Inspector General found her allegations, as described in the unclassified version of his report, to be "credible," "serious," and "warrant[ing] a thorough and careful review by the FBI."

As far back as 2002, Grassley and Leahy co-wrote letters on Edmonds' behalf to Attorney General John Ashcroft, FBI Director Robert Mueller, and DoJ Inspector General Glenn A. Fine, calling on all of them to take action in respect to the allegations she's made.

"Certain officials in this country are engaged in treason against the United States and its interests and its national security," she said during an interview an August 2005 interview on Democracy Now. That comment followed 60 Minutes' revelation years before alleging that Edmonds had information revealing that a "Turkish intelligence officer" she worked with at the FBI "had spies working for him inside the US State Department and at the Pentagon."

She's briefed many legislative offices --- as well as the 9/11 Commission --- in regard to her claims, and now, she says, she's even prepared to tell the media "the names of every single Congressional office who has received the names of the witnesses" to the crimes she's detailed.

When we spoke last week, Edmonds seemed to reserve most of her frustration for Congressman Henry Waxman's office. Waxman is the Democratic Chairman of the U.S. House Government Reform and Oversight Committee.

After briefing members of his security-cleared staff "inside the SCIF" --- a high-security room in the U.S. Capitol, specially created for discussion of highly sensitive information --- Edmonds says she was told on several occasions, prior to the 2006 Election, that her case would be one of the first heard in his committee, once he became Chairman.

"I even gave names of former and current FBI agents who were willing to go to Waxman's office and give more information on all of this," she said.

"Before the elections, I had a promise from Congressman Waxman's office." She claims they told her, before the election, "the only reason they couldn't hold hearings, was because the Republicans were blocking it."

"They said 'your case will be one of the first ones we will hold investigations on,'" she told us. Now, however, since the Democrats have become the majority in the House, Waxman's office is "going mum." They won't even respond to her calls.

The congressman's office did not respond to several requests for comment on this story.

Two Other "Well-Known" Congressmen

Aside from the allegations she's already made concerning Hastert, as we reported in some detail in early 2006, following up on a Vanity Fair exposť in 2005, Edmonds says there are at least "two other well-known" members of Congress that she's prepared to name as well.

"There are other Congressional people, whose names have not come out," she explained. "As [Waxman's office knows] I'll be able to give them file numbers and investigations, including investigations by the IRS. I will be giving details one by one, not just allegations."

"But," she added, "unfortunately nobody wants to have an investigation like that."

For the record, she told The BRAD BLOG, the other two "well-known members" are from the House, both Republican, and "one of them is recently no longer there."

So far, she says, "those names have not been public."

"Kafka-esque"

Since leaving the FBI, and in the wake of her years-long ordeal, which she frequently describes as "Kafka-esque," Edmonds has founded the National Security Whistleblowers Coalition.

In addition to the support she has received, at various times, from members of Congress, she's received a great deal of support from members of the national security whistleblower community and government watchdog organizations.

As we reported last Spring, Veteran FBI counterintelligence agent John Cole has said he's "talked to people who had read her file, who had read the investigative report, and they were telling me a totally different story" than that given publicly by FBI officials. "They were telling me that Sibel Edmonds was 100 percent accurate," he said, "management knew that she was correct."

Famed "Pentagon Papers" whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg has described Edmonds as "extremely credible." In a 2005 interview on KPFA, Ellsberg said, "FBI agents we've talked to have, in every respect that was raised, have confirmed her story - that she's a very credible witness."

More than 30 groups, from across the political spectrum --- including the Project on Government Oversight (POGO), Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the September 11th Advocates, the Liberty Coalition, the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), OMB Watch, Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) and People for the American Way (PFAW) --- all signed a letter in March of this year calling on the House Oversight Committee to "hold public hearings into the case of FBI Whistleblower Sibel Edmonds, and the erroneous use of the State Secrets Privilege to shut down all court proceedings in her case."

That petition was sent almost precisely one year after The BRAD BLOG originally reported on a public petition to Congress, demanding they hold public hearings. More than 30,000 people, Edmonds says, have now signed that petition since it was first announced.

"Exhausted Every Channel"

In a speech given over the Summer in D.C. at the American Library Association (ALA, video here), Edmonds detailed the "Kafka-esque" nature of her unprecedented gag-order. Among the information still-regarded as "classified" under the States Secret Privelege: the fact that she was a translator for the FBI, where she was born, what languages she speaks, the date of her birth, the universities she attended, and the degrees she earned.

In fact, the interview that CBS's 60 Minutes aired with her in 2004, was later retroactively classified by the Department of Justice under the same "privilege"!

But enough is enough. She's now ready to tell all. To the public. But not (yet) to us. She will speak, however, to any broadcast network that would like to have her.

"I have exhausted every channel. If they want to, they can bring criminal charges against someone who divulges criminal activity, and see how far they're going to get."

But will any of the corporate mainstream networks take her up on the offer? It'd certainly be an explosive exclusive.

"I don't think any of the mainstream media are going to have the guts to do it," she dared them.

So whaddaya say 60 Minutes? We've given you scoops before that you ended up turning down --- and likely later regretted. Will you be smart enough to take this one?

"You put me on air live, or unedited. If I'm given the time, I will give the American people the exact reason of what I've been gagged from saying because of the States Secrets Privilege, and why it is that I'm the most gagged person in the history of the United States."

"My feeling is that none of them have the guts to do that," she dared them, before charging, "they are all manipulated."

"I keep using the word Kafkaesque..." she paused, during her speech at ALA, clearly showing her exasperation, "because...," she continued slowly, "...I really can't come up with a better word."
All eyes are opened, or opening, to the rights of man. The general spread of the light of science has already laid open to every view the palpable truth, that the mass of mankind has not been born with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few booted and spurred, ready to ride them legitimately

Covered-up 9/11 information to be released.
« Reply #2 on: October 29, 2007, 01:42:44 PM »

FBI Whistleblower Sibel Edmonds, named "the most gagged person in the history of the United States of America" by the ACLU, will tell all and face charges. *If* any major TV network will air what she has to say unedited. 

She'll tell everything she concernng the following.

9/11 Related:

    * Information omitted and covered-up regarding documented and confirmed case of a long-term FBI Informant & Asset who provided the FBI with specific information and warnings in April & June 2001 regarding 9/11 terrorist attacks.

    * Information omitted & covered up regarding documented information in the procession of the FBI in July 2001 regarding blue prints and building composite information of Sky Scrapers being sent to certain groups in the Middle East by certain Middle-Eastern suspects in the State of Nevada.

    * Information omitted & covered up regarding arrangements made between the State Department and certain countries to deport certain Middle-Eastern and Central Asian detainees from jails in New Jersey & New York off the record and without having them interrogated in November 2001. (Documents related to these suspects were forged at the FBI).

    * Information omitted & covered up regarding nuclear related information illegally obtained by certain foreign entities and US persons (government officials) from several US labs being sold to a certain Middle-Eastern group in the United States in 1998-2000. The operation involved individuals with Diplomatic cover, foreign Ph.D. students, and US employees.

    * Information omitted & covered up regarding money laundering & narcotics operations, some of which involved entities from the Middle East and the Balkans, in several US cities.

    * Information omitted & covered up regarding certain Pakistani Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI)-related activities linked to the 9/11 attacks between August & October 2001.

    * Certain terrorist related Counterintelligence/FISA information & investigations were prevented from being transferred to counterterrorism & criminal division by the Department of State and the Pentagon; "preserving sensitive diplomatic relations" and "protecting certain US foreign business relations (mainly involving weapons procurement)" were cited as reasons.

    * Intentional mistranslation & blocking of foreign language intelligence of FBI counterterrorism and counterintelligence investigations.


And the list goes on here:

"A time comes when silence is betrayal."



This has probobly been eating away at her.  She can't betray America any longer by keeping quiet.

Just a suggestion but perhaps we should send Ď60 Minutesí a healthy barrage of respectful yet stern e-mails encouraging them to interview Sibel Edmonds?  Send such a request to any news outlet of preference actually.  I just figured that it would be more effective if we all chose to focus on the same program/network.  The media needs to be pressured and this will eliminate their ability to plead ignorance on the subject.

Impeach Cheney, Bush and Pelosi!

By Ted Lang
http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article18786.htm

11/28/07 "ICH' --- - As has been consistently reported by the real American news media, the Internet, a vast majority of Americans want the war in Iraq ended, and also want Cheney, the real head of the Executive Branch, along with his puppet, George W. Bush, impeached. It is the belief of this writer that no president in American history is not only more disliked, but is actually more hated by the majority of Americans. The lies that got US into a war of invasion and mass murder of innocent, unarmed people perpetrated under the guise of “bringing them freedom and democracy” is the cruelest of absurdities, and totally un-American.

Our so-called two-party system has always been touted as a naturally evolved complimentary political support system that enhances our constitutionally limited republican form of government thereby ensuring the individual freedoms of each and every American citizen. The Cheney-Bush regime clearly underscores the fallacy and absurdity of this continuing mainstream media hype. A year ago, voters, including Republicans, handed Democrats a card blanche authorization in the interim elections voicing this nation’s desires to end the war in Iraq, to impeach Cheney-Bush, and to block these lunatics from initiating World War III by invading Iran. The resultant non-action is testimony to the farce of the “two party system.”

The chief obstruction in Congress has been House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi. As far as this writer is concerned, her treason is much greater than that of Cheney-Bush. For it is Pelosi, and only Pelosi, who enjoys the most powerful position in American government, a power which solely enables her to remove these proven criminals from office. Remembering and considering the lies, falsehoods and propaganda, now all proven as such as generated by the criminals in the Bush White House, and employed to enrage the American people into believing that vengeance could be delivered to the doorstep of those who planned and perpetrated 9/11. Bush, in a post Iraq press interview answering a reporter’s query as to what Saddam and Iraq had to do with 9/11, replied, “Nothing!” Then why are we there? Why are we still there?

The answers to these questions are obvious when considering the intransigent position of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, and the obvious collusion of the Democratic Party. Reflect upon this, the most golden of opportunities, for one party to not only openly demonstrate “product differentiation” as well as its opposition to the other, but to, at the same time, satisfy the will of the overwhelming majority of voters and to dispel the growing anger of the American people who are increasingly coming to hate their government. What an opportunity to do the right thing. But the governing attitude in play is that of the “American” mainstream media [MSM] and that of our now-affirmed criminal political class: “The public be damned.”

Even given the advantage of Cheney-Bush former insiders coming out and coming clean, Paul O’Neill, Colin Powell, and now Bush’s former press secretary Scott McClellan, Democrats are electively hamstrung. The MSM did more than a yeoman’s job in marginalizing the Plame Affair: who said what to whom, was Plame really an agent, was the information concerning her role damaging or even classified at the time, etc.? All the usual MSM obstructionism of misinformation, disinformation, editorialized facts to fit a political template, as well as the total spiking and suppression of facts and truth. It can therefore be expected that the same journalistic obstructionism and obfuscation will be used against McClellan. And let’s not forget the eventual ridicule from “The Three Stooges” [Limbaugh, Hannity and O’Reilly].

The Plame Affair represents the exposure of an undercover supervising agent and her operatives during a time of war, which implies that just perhaps some of those operatives could have been placed in serious danger, rendered permanently ineffective, or even murdered. Of course, such outcomes have been minimized and ignored by the media. And even though the question concerning the impact upon operatives was posed during Plame’s interview on CBS’ “60 Minutes,” Plame indicated that the answer couldn’t be given because she implied that such information was highly confidential and that she was therefore also under a government gag order; yet another secret to protect the Cheney-Bush federal crime machine. And recently, Sibel Edmonds revealed that the primary subject of information she had and for which she was gagged by Cheney-Bush arch criminals Mueller and Ashcroft concerned the criminal activities against the United States by the Israel lobby, AIPAC. Surprise, surprise!

The Plame exposure is a violation of Title 18 of the United States Code of Federal Regulations. Virtually any and all Title 18 violations constitute a felony. In the case of Plame, exposing an undercover federal agent on assignment investigating a potential enemy’s [Iran] weapons of mass destruction, a potential enemy Cheney-Bush has all along indicated as being precisely such, indicates that Cheney-Bush had knowingly exposed Plame to a potential enemy of the United States for solely political reasons to enhance their own positions of political power and wealth. Such an offense, under Title 18, and during a time of war, constitutes a capital offense punishable by death. Cheney-Bush’s brief but frantic efforts to re-word the “Global War on Terror” [GWOT] to render the military incursions into Iraq and Afghanistan as non-war activities is irrefutable testimony of the fact that Cheney-Bush knew they were in violation of Title 18 when they actively and deliberately outed Plame. McClellan’s pronouncements to advance his book now manifest themselves as more such evidence in the American court of public opinion relative to the felonious outing of Plame.

Proof of criminal espionage against our nation was established in the Larry Franklin/AIPAC spy case, where the top AIPAC officials received confidential Executive Branch secret documents from Franklin and then passed them on to the Israeli government in Tel Aviv. These secret documents concerned the Cheney-Bush strategy for igniting war with Iran as per Israel’s latest warmongering desires and directives. And clearly, our criminal-dominated federal government is now dragging its feet in prosecuting the AIPAC spy case, while at the same time allowing Cheney-Bush to dodge the bullet concerning Plame and the entire CIA’s findings that Iran poses no nuclear threat! At the very least, Pelosi should never have caved into AIPAC’s booing and hissing at her speech announcing her intent to congressionally and constitutionally restrain Cheney-Bush from initiating a preemptive attack against Iran. It will be recalled how she quickly returned to her office to remove those restraints per AIPAC and Israel’s commands.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is a traitor! Her joy and giddiness at achieving Speaker status in January 2007 now demonstrates clearly that gender makes absolutely no difference in terms of integrity, compassion, morality and service to the American people via the faithful performance of required constitutional mandates. The need to impeach Cheney-Bush to preserve the Union, preserve the two-party system, and assure a people-responsive federal government, have been egregiously ignored as well as orchestrated and amplified by this immoral traitor. It is Pelosi who now represents Cheney-Bush’s most powerful and effective enabler and supporter. Pelosi is now a vital part of the Cheney-Bush crime machine. She is an accessory before, during and after the fact. And she assuredly supports the AIPAC/Cheney-Bush crime machine’s intended and unwarranted, unconstitutional invasion of Iran.

Any impeachment effort must now include House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

I do not believe that the constitution allows for impeachment of a congressional member, but it does allow for treason investigations , trials, and convictions.

Because they all answer to CFR and Rockefeller.  They are all on the same team and now everyone can see it clearly.

But something like Nixon is more probable:

Step 1: cheney resigns

Step 2: Bush appoints a new VP (which must be approved by congress)

Step 3: Bush resigns and new pres appoints new VP (which again must be approved by congress)

that is how nixon went down and how ford (unelected) became president of the free world.

But if Pelosi keeps f**king around, the people can request a grand jury investigation into treason for disobeying and blocking the constitutional responsibilities of her office.

With reports of Cheney being in poor health, we can hope. :-)

Step 2: Bush appoints a new VP (which must be approved by congress)
Does it?  I thought Bush was above the law and Congress powerless now? ???

Step 3: Bush resigns and new pres appoints new VP (which again must be approved by congress)
If Bush resigned, how would the new President be selected?  Would this be by Congress also?  I could see them appointing Arnold Schwarzenegger as VP even if he isn't constitutionally eligible to serve as President.  I've heard that the Rothschilds are keen on AS becoming President. :-\

n.b As I am British and have never been to the US, I'm a bit vague about the ins and outs of the American system.

He has set things up for Hillary, they usually do not use the powers they grant themselves (look at all of Clinton's EOs), the process needs to move slowly or we catch on.  If he did this, there would be 200 million revolting.  With enough investigations and battles on the info-war front - he will have to take the deal.

The new pres would be the VP that is agreed by Congress/Bush (look at how Ford became Pres, it was the same way)

A VP c annot be selected who does not have the qualifications to be a president.  Dude you are getting wacky, Arnold has been totally exposed as a Nazi, something Bush has been hiding before he was born.

I heard that anyone who was an American citizen for a set amount of years was eligible to serve as VP.  I guess that was likely misinformation where I saw it. ???

Dude you are getting wacky
Nah, lol I've always been a bit wacky. :P  A lot of info from the US has given me the impression that the global elites will do whatever they like, with or without the consent of the American people, regardless of what the constitution or any law states.  Most ordinary mind controlled masses in America and Britain seem to believe that the government is the law and their ingroups can act according to their whims. ???

yeah well we are trying to get all that straightened out since there is a nationwide awakening of hundreds of millions of Americans at the moment.

Did you hear that 90% disapprove of our government?  That is 270 million Citizens.

Impeachment Must Happen

By Carol Davidek-Waller

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article18799.htm

11/29/07 "ICH" -- -- Clearly the nation has turned against Vice President Cheney and President George W. Bush. Their approval ratings are the lowest of any elected leaders in American history. We are weary of war and bled white from profligate spending and larceny. Our civil rights have been severely restricted and crimes have been committed. A once peaceful world stands on the brink of turmoil.

As the 2008 elections draw near, it's tempting to look upon regime change as an end to our long night. We would like to believe that a change of face in the Oval Office would repair the damage done by the current administration. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Without investigation and impeachment, electing a new president will only serve to codify the unprecedented and illegitimate power stolen from the Congress and the American people. The powers of a dictator will be passed on like an Olympic torch where they will reside with the next president.

The nation has been wounded in its beating heart. The president is no longer obligated to uphold and defend the Constitution or obey and execute the laws of the land. We no longer have the full protection of the Bill of Rights. Our elected leaders are no longer bound to tell the truth. These wounds will continue to fester until they are cleansed by a strong dose of sunlight.

Failure to impeach is a threat to our national security. In the same way that we cannot expect our nation to be secure if we donít understand what threatens us beyond our borders, we cannot expect the nation to be secure if we donít understand and check what threatens us from within. The excesses of our own government can become a far greater threat than terrorism.

Articles of Impeachment against Dick Cheney were filed several months ago and the majority of Americans favor impeachment. Congress has refused to act. They even turned a blind eye when Rep. Dennis Kucinich read out the well-document charges against Cheney on the floor of the House and demanded action.

The charges against Cheney are chilling. They outline in stark relief the peril our nation faces when even one man exercises unrestrained power; even a man whose office is purely ceremonial. How could so much damage be done in such a short time? Why has no one stopped him?

Elections give us an opportunity to choose our representatives and leaders. They do not and were never meant to address the gross abuses of power, war crimes, felonies and fraud that Cheney and Bush have engaged in. Impeachment not elections gets top billing in the Constitution.

Elections will not address the tragedy of the hundreds of thousands who have died in an unnecessary war nor honor their sacrifice. Elections will not prevent your government from spying on you without cause or restore your right to privacy. They will not prevent you from being incarcerated or having your assets seized because one man, the president, says so. Elections will not prevent you from being tortured or flown to another country to be tortured. Elections will not keep your own military from being used against you. They will not restore the rule of law or the integrity of the Judiciary. They will not restore the balance of powers. Elections will not prevent this nation or any other from making war at will or stealing another nationís resources. They will not restore the delicate balance of the global community, shattered by broken treaties and unchecked lust for domination and power.

Elections will not prevent a president Clinton from declaring you an enemy combatant and shipping you off to Guantanamo. They wonít prevent a president Obama from sweeping up Americans and holding them indefinitely on his word alone. They wonít prevent a president Guiliani from illegally and immorally murdering millions of Iranians for no legitimate reason. They wonít prevent a president Romney from seizing your home and assets because he alleges you are impeding operations in Iraq. It wonít prevent a president Thompson from exempting himself, his entire administration and his political supporters from the rule of law. It wonít prevent any president from leaving the nation unprotected by ignoring or rewriting the intelligence to suit his or her political agenda. Elections wonít guarantee that anyone you elect to lead or represent you has to tell you, the congress or the judiciary the truth.

Under the Constitution, we have the right to know if our elected leaders are doing their jobs or abusing the power of their office.

When serious allegations are made, it is our right to have public investigations that are immune to state secrets and executive privilege.
We have a responsibility as citizens to act on that information.

There is no more important work for congress to do. You cannot build anything on a weak foundation. Unscrupulous men and women have damaged the very foundation of our nation: the Constitution is the very bedrock upon which the order and legality of our nation rests. These same people have suspended the rule of law by which we govern ourselves. They assert that the government is theirs to do with as they wish. We cannot let that stand.

The genius of the Constitution is that it contains the remedy for its own healing, itís own restoration. That remedy is impeachment. Not elections. Impeachment.

We Are Change LA - Truth Squaded! An Encounter with Rep. Henry Waxman
http://www.mtrnews.com/group/print.php?news.6
by, Cheri Roberts-Piper – MTR News


Thursday night Rep. Henry Waxman walked into a crowded room of concerned constituents and citizens - after what had reportedly already been a trying day. The longtime and much loved Congressman got a little more than he bargained for. Waxman was met in a small community room at the Westside Pavilion Landmark Theater building in Santa Monica, CA, by more than a hundred people, most of whom appeared to be there to discuss and press for the impeachment of both President Bush and Vice President Cheney.

Waxman’s more than 30-minute speech focussed on health care, corrupt charities, rampant steroid use in major league baseball, and he touched lightly with pride on the fact that Congress had just passed the Whistle Blower Protection Act. He clearly stated with regard to any impeachment bill that his opinion differed from those in the room and that he would not support such hearings nor would he entertain a new 911 investigation because it would look bad for the Democratic Party. When the disagreeing crowd interrupted his speech at that point, Waxman, who was clearly agitated and sounding almost childish said,


"Hey this is not right, the way you are treating me".

As We Are Change LA’s Adam Ruff put it,

"He nearly cracked completely a couple times. He apparently wants to continue to ignore the will of the people and wants to be respected for that".

Later, when the audience was allowed to ask questions they lined the center isle for their turn to speak. From the beginning Waxman was bombarded with question after question about Sibel Edmonds – the gagged FBI Whistleblower, WTC7 and other issues related to the crimes of 911. These questions came from We Are Change LA members who had dispersed into the audience and appeared to be coming from everywhere - even the cameraman at the event, Drew Piper, was a founding member of the Change LA group.

Congressman Waxman, you have just been Truth Squaded!

The questions ranged from why the Congressman refuses to have Sibel Edmonds testify under oath in an open session to when will Congress open a new 911 investigation - while also hitting hard on HR 1955. Waxman was obviously caught off guard and cornered with little to say on those issues. Even the forum’s host and moderator, Mickey Oskey - of the Democratic Westside Progressives, tried without luck, to stop the bombardment. No less than six We Are Change LA members were able to get their hard-hitting questions heard before the Congressman had to leave.

At the end of the night I asked core Change LA members Katy Kurtzman - whose question was about the new Thought Crime Bill HR 1955, and Jeremy Rothe-Kushel what they were walking away with from this experience.

Katy was the first to respond,

"What I find most striking is he (Waxman) admitted to not reading HR 1955 at all before signing it. I mean, that just really struck me hard, that and also the fact that he is obviously ok with fascism and treason in our country because according to him it would hurt the Democratic Party if he were to press any line of impeachment".

When Kurtzman asked her question during the Q & A, the Congressman readily admitted to not having read HR 1955 and went on to admonish the audience for not alerting him personally that there was any controversy surrounding the Bill. Anonymously from the audience came the response that Waxman had no right to sign anything pertaining to the American people without first reading and understanding what he was signing.

While as Jeremy, Change member and founder of Jewish Voices for Peace and Justice, said he got what he had expected to get and that,
"He (Waxman) confirmed for me what I was already thinking about the democratic leadership at this point, that they’re just playing politics with peoples lives and with what is right and wrong. The fact that the congress has a lower approval rating then the worst President in US history is proof that this strategy of theirs is neither moral nor politically savvy".

As Waxman exited the community room, Change members were waiting for him on the catwalk, with camera rolling. Followed by his entourage, Waxman walked away only to stop abruptly, arms spread wide in question and turn to this writer with obvious discomfort and ask,

"Why are you following me?"

To which I replied,

"Because the exits that way Sir…"
*Sibel Edmonds - pronounced Si-bell, testified under oath before Congress about foreknowledge of the attacks of Sep. 11th, 2001 by government higher ups as translated while the FBI employed her. Sibel has been gagged from speaking about this and other evidence, by the US Government with threat of incarceration and is a champion to the 911 Truth movement.

SIBEL EDMONDS SPEAKS TO UK SUNDAY TIMES: SAYS U.S. OFFICIALS INVOLVED IN RELEASE OF NUKE SECRETS TO TURKEY, PAKISTAN, IRAN, OTHERS, POSSIBLY EVEN AL-QAEDA
Former 'Gagged' FBI Whistleblower Alleges Pentagon, State Department Officials Overheard Receiving Payoffs in Exchange for Classified Info; Crimes Covered Up at Highest Levels of Government
U.S. Media Scooped Again, Failed to Air Claims After Offer of Disclosure by Edmonds in Recent BRAD BLOG Exclusives...

-- By Brad Friedman

Sibel Edmonds, the former FBI translator who has been under a Bush administration gag order for the past 5 years, has now begun to disclose some of the classified information she has been prohibited from revealing.

"A WHISTLEBLOWER has made a series of extraordinary claims about how corrupt government officials allowed Pakistan and other states to steal nuclear weapons secrets," reports Great Britain's Sunday Times in the lede of their front page exclusive, headlined "For sale: West’s deadly nuclear secrets."

In the article, just filed tonight, Edmonds reveals details overheard on wiretaps she translated during her time at the FBI, just after 9/11. Her disclosures to the Times reveal a maze of nuclear black market espionage involving U.S. Defense and State Department officials, that resulted in the sale and propagation of nuclear secrets to Turkish and Israeli interests. In turn, that information was then sold to Pakistan and used by A.Q. Kahn for development of nuclear weapons. The secrets were subsequently proliferated to Iran, Libya, North Korea, and potentially al-Qaeda's Osama bin Laden, just weeks prior to September 11th, 2001.

The explosive allegations, shared with the Sunday Times over the last several weeks, follows on the heels of two reports published late last year by The BRAD BLOG, based on our own exclusive interviews with Edmonds.

While not everything Edmonds has to reveal is reported by the Times tonight, the foreign paper's front-page feature underscores, yet again, the failure of the U.S. mainstream media to adequately report on issues of extraordinary importance to American national security.

In late October, Edmonds had told The BRAD BLOG she was prepared to reveal the information to any major U.S. broadcast media outlet, after feeling that she had exhausted all efforts to see the disturbing information properly investigated by U.S. Government agencies. She had, in fact, spent years in classified interviews with high-ranking officials from the FBI, DoJ, 9/11 Commission and both houses of the U.S. Congress, in hopes of seeing accountability brought concerning the issues of national security, which the DoJ's own Inspector General had described as "credible," "serious," and "warrant[ing] a thorough and careful review by the FBI."

Despite broken promises for hearings on her case by U.S. Congressman Henry Waxman (D-CA), support from Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Patrick Leahy (D-MI), and a number of mainstream exposťs several years ago detailing aspects of her story before she was willing to break her unprecedented "States Secrets Privilege" gag order, none of the American broadcast media outlets took her up on her offer.

"She has now decided to divulge some of that information after becoming disillusioned with the US authorities' failure to act," reports the Sunday Times tonight...

"While that "well-known senior" State Department official is not named by the paper, Australia's Luke Ryland, perhaps the world's foremost expert concerning the Sibel Edmonds story, has told The BRAD BLOG that the official, unnamed by the Times, is Marc Grossman."
http://www.bradblog.com/?p=5518

Marc Grossman named to have possible roll in Plame outing as well.


 Lesser Neocons of L'Affaire Plame
by Christopher Deliso

balkanalysis.com

From start to finish, the Niger deception and the outing of CIA agent Valerie Plame depended on a relay team of hawkish officials providentially placed throughout various government agencies. These included the CIA, the Pentagon and its Office of Special Plans (now under official investigation by the Pentagon's Office of the Inspector General), the State Department, and the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), performing a handoff of information from the point of origin (the CIA) to the ultimate "commissioners" of the inquiry, the masterminds in the White House and the office of Vice President Dick Cheney.

Considering the frequently attested intra- and interfactional nature of all of these agencies, it is understandable why the highest officials in the land jostled to get their "people" strategically inserted throughout the departments, where they could garner inside information and hinder the objectives of their ostensibly direct employers whenever they conflicted with the goals of their real minders.

Aside from the high-visibility officials involved or presumably involved in the outing of CIA agent Valerie Plame Ė Lewis Libby, Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, etc. Ė we also have a generous sprinkling of neocons who, while somewhat less well known, have played a crucial role in not only the Plame outing but in policy-crafting and, perhaps, criminal activities as well.

The present study considers four such figures: David Wurmser and Frederick Fleitz, both formerly employed in the State Department office of the Madman with the Handlebar Mustache, John Bolton; Marc Grossman, a longtime State Department official recently turned lobbyist; and Eric Edelman, like Grossman a former ambassador to Turkey, longtime Cheneyite, and current recess appointee to Doug Feith's old position as No. 3 in the Pentagon.

As Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs from 1997 to 2000, Ambassador Grossman was responsible for over 4,000 State Department employees posted in 50 sites abroad with a program budget of $1.2 billion. He played a lead role in orchestrating NATO's 50th anniversary Summit in Washington in 1999 and helped direct U.S. participation in NATO’s military campaign in Kosovo that same year.

Oil for Food, Lobbyists, and Corporate Profits

Prior to the October 2005 release of Paul Volcker's report on violations of the United Nations' Iraq oil-for-food program, the Australian wheat exporter AWB Limited hired the Washington DC lobbying firm The Cohen Group, which is headed by former U.S. defense secretary William S. Cohen. AWB paid approximately $A300 million in trucking fees on its wheat contracts to a Jordanian company, Alia, which owns no trucks. The funds were funnelled to Saddam Hussein's government, according to information given to an Australian government-appointed Royal Commission.

Last week, AWB Middle East Marketing Manager Chris Whitwell mentioned The Cohen Group when asked about diary entries related to "develop[ing] a communications strategy." Whitwell said "Chalabi - link to Alia" referred to Ahmed Chalabi, as "he and Alia have some issues." Stanley McDermott, a partner in the law firm DLA Piper Rudnick Gray Cary, which has a "strategic alliance" with The Cohen Group, has also advised AWB. [1]

In December 2005, AWB hired Peter Sandman to assist in handling the kickbacks crisis. According to testimony by AWB Secretary Richard Fuller, Mr Sandman's strategy was to "over apologise" and that he had drafted a letter to the Australian people doing so. AWB subsequently decided not to proceed with the strategy. [2]

Good ol' Marc...taking away sovereignty from the Iraqi people. How is this f**ker not in jail?
http://sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Iraqi_sovereignty:_June_30%2C_2004
Writing for the April 22, 2004, edition of the New York Times, Steven R. Weisman reported that Bush administration officials admitted during the day's "Senate Foreign Relations Committee's hearing on the goal of returning Iraq to self-rule on June 30[, that the administration's] "plans for a new caretaker government in Iraq would place severe limits on its sovereignty, including only partial command over its armed forces and no authority to enact new laws [and] ... Only 10 weeks from the scheduled transfer of sovereignty, the administration is still not sure exactly who will govern in Baghdad, or precisely how they will be selected."

Although leadership of Iraq's 25 ministries should go to the Iraqis, CPA "senior advisers" have been in charge of them for the past year, with ultimate control of both "budgets and policy. ... After June 30, ministries will theoretically become free from US control; their budgets will be set by the Iraqi interim government. The people now acting as provisional authority advisers may stay on, US officials say, but only as consultants to the Iraqi ministers." [18]
"In testimony before the Senate and the House Armed Services committees, Deputy Defense Secretary Paul D. Wolfowitz and Undersecretary of State Marc Grossman said the United States will operate under the transitional law approved by the Iraqi Governing Council and a resolution approved by the U.N. Security Council last October. Both those provisions give control of the country's security to U.S. military commanders.
"Whereas in the past the turnover was described as granting total sovereignty to the appointed Iraqi government, Grossman yesterday termed it limited sovereignty because 'it is limited by the transitional law . . . and the U.N. resolution.'"
"Under the current plan, U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan's special adviser, Lakhdar Brahimi, will appoint a temporary government that will run Iraqi government agencies for six months and prepare the way for January 2005 elections of an assembly that will select a second, temporary government and write a constitution.
"Wolfowitz described the July 1 government as purely temporary and there to 'run ministries . . . but most importantly, they'll be setting up elections.' In addition he said, the government will run the police force 'but in coordination with Centcom [the U.S. Central Command], because this is not a normal police situation.'"
"'Sovereignty is not something we can, or want, to take back,' Wolfowitz said yesterday, outlining efforts to develop a large, new armed force there. 'The security of Iraq . . . will be part of a multinational force under U.S. command, including Iraqi forces.'"

Future of Iraq Project -  http://sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Future_of_Iraq_Project A hearing on the U.S. Department of State's Future of Iraq Project was held by Senate Commmittee on Foreign Relations on February 11, 2003, with Senator Dick Lugar presiding.
Two witness panels at the hearing included: (Panel 1) Marc I. Grossman, Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs, and Douglas Jay Feith, Undersecretary of Defense for Policy, and (Panel 2) Colonel Scott R. Feil (Ret.), Executive Director, Role of American Military Power; General Anthony C. Zinni, (Ret.)

Burke Chair for Strategy, Center for Strategic and International Studies.

Iraqi Interim Government - http://sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Iraqi_Interim_Government "Officials Explain Plans for Sovereignty Transfer in Iraq." Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Marc Grossman and Lieutenant General Walter L. Sharp, director of Strategic Plans and Policy of the Joint Staff, testified before the International Relations Committee of the House of Representatives May 13 about the administration's plans to transfer sovereignty to Iraq on June 30, 2004.
"At the national level, our focus today is on forming the Iraqi Interim Government (IIG). At the invitation of the Iraqi Governing Council, and with our full support, the UN is playing a vital role in the formation of the Iraqi Interim Government by June 30 and in preparing for national elections by January 2005.
"In April, Ambassador Lakhdar Brahimi conducted extensive consultations with Iraqis as part of this process. On April 27, Ambassador Brahimi briefed the UN Security Council on his preliminary ideas for the formation of the IIG.
"Based on his consultations in Iraq, Ambassador Brahimi has proposed establishing by the end of May an interim government led by a Prime Minister that also includes a President and two deputy presidents. A council of ministers would report to the Prime Minister. An Advisory Body, selected in July by a National Conference, would serve alongside the Executive but have no legislative authority."
"The Iraqi Interim Government will be the sovereign governing authority of Iraq on June 30. But it will also be a temporary government. As Ambassador Brahimi has noted on several occasions, the priorities of this government should be the day-to-day administration of the country, the preparations of elections for the Transitional National Assembly, providing for the security and safety of the Iraqi people, and continuing economic reconstruction and development.
"On June 30, Iraq will be fully sovereign. Iraqis have told us, however, of their desire to have limits on the authorities of this government -- an unelected, short-term interim government. This reflects the view among Iraqis that there are some issues best left for decision to an elected Iraqi government."
"Iraqis have told us that only a government chosen by democratic elections will be viewed within Iraq as fully legitimate. We agree. The call for national elections in early 2005 was a key part of the November 15 agreement.
"The UN's involvement in helping Iraqis prepare for elections has been, and will remain vital to Iraq's political transition. The UN election team, headed by Carina Perelli, has a close, productive working relationship with Iraqi and CPA officials. Ms. Perelli has recently reported that preparations for the establishment of an Independent Election Commission are in good shape. A nationwide nomination process, endorsed by the Governing Council, to select the commissioners is now underway. The plan is to select seven commissioners through a careful review process. As its name suggests, the Commission will be independent and nonpartisan. Even with this progress, we continue to face a very tight timeline."

Sibel 'names names' (in pictures!)

Over at Sibel's website, she has published "Sibel Edmondsí State Secrets Privilege Gallery" - twenty one photos of people.

Sibel doesn't say anything about the photos - or the people in the photos - but we can reasonably presume that they are the 21 guilty people in her case.

Sibel has broken the photos into three different groups.

The first group contains current and former Pentagon and State Department officials.

Richard Perle


Douglas Feith


Eric Edelman


Marc Grossman


Brent Scowcroft


Larry Franklin


The second group is current and former congressmen

Dennis Hastert - Ex-House Speaker (R-Il)


Roy Blount - ( R, Mo)


Dan Burton - (R - IN)


Tom Lantos - (D- CA)


?

Bob Livingston - ex-Speaker of the House (R-LA)


Stephen Solarz (D-CA)


The 3rd group includes people who all appear to work at think tanks - primarily WINEP, The Washington Institute for Near East Policy

Graham E. Fuller - RAND


David Makovsky - WINEP


Alan Makovsky - WINEP


?

?

 Yusuf Turani (President-in-exile, Turkistan)


Professor Sabri Sayari (Georgetown, WINEP)


Mehmet Eymur (Former Turkish Spy Chief MIT)


As you can see, there are a couple of 'Question Marks' instead of photos. I'm not sure why that is the case.


I'll have some more later, obviously.

Are you sure this site belongs to Sibel Edmonds? The man listed above has fought tooth and nail to get Mercury removed from vaccines, as his grandson was afflicted with autism.

http://www.csmonitor.com/2007/1012/p01s04-woeu.html ...Some congressmen said the Turkish warnings of retaliation were a bluff, with one saying he felt as through a "Turkish sword" was over his head. "We can't provide genocide denial as one of the perks of friendship with the United States," added Rep. Brad Sherman (D) of California. But others expressed shock. "This is crazy," said Rep. Dan Burton (R) of Indiana. "We're in the middle of two wars and we've got troops over there that are at risk, and we're talking about kicking the one ally that's helping us over there in the face."


C'mon and wake up.

Dan may like clean vaccines, but he loves Nukes for Turkey.

More on Mehmet Eymur (Former Turkish Spy Chief MIT)


http://rastibini.blogspot.com/2007/01/jitem-and-hrant-dink.html

Yet more, from TNA: [story in the link is now gone]


    Hanefi Avci, who was then the police intelligence department acting head and now is Edirne police chief, best described the Susurluk connections. In his testimony at the parliamentary commission probing the Susurluk scandal, he claimed that there was an "illegal" organization established within the state to fight terrorism. He also said this organization then became a gang, which was established within the MIT, the police and Gendarmerie Intelligence (JITEM). Mehmet Agar, Korkut Eken, Ibrahim Sahin from the police, Mehmet Eymur, Duran Firat and Kasif Binbasi from the MIT and Lt. Col. Veli Kucuk from JITEM were in this organization and involved in numerous illegal actions under the leadership of Ahmet Cem Ersever, who was later killed by Kemal Uzuner (a.k.a Cubuklu), a driver working at JITEM, said Avci.



[Note: Mehmet Eymur is the bastard who was in charge of MIT's "counter-terrorism" department. He's been in "exile" in the US for some time, apparently after having some kind of trouble with the really big bastards behind the Deep State. Word on the street now is that he's been given some kind of reprieve, and that he's assisting Mehmet Agar in his campaign. Why is the United States protecting mass murderers like Mehmet Eymur? Inquiring minds want to know.]

Even More on Mehmet Eymur (Former Turkish Spy Chief MIT)

http://www.hri.org/news/turkey/anadolu/1998/98-01-23.anadolu.html [There is a lot in this link, but I'll post the most interesting part]

[12] TURKEY-SUSURLUK SCANDAL (4) - SUSURLUK REPORT : '' THE COMPLEX STRUCTURE OF EVENTS STEMMED FROM THE UNSERIOUSNESS OF THE STATE INSTITUTION''


ANKARA, Dec 23 (A.A) - The Susurluk report of which a part has been disclosed in a private tv channel said ''... the complex structure of events stemmed from the unseriousness of the state institutions. This negative atmosphere is the cause of what has happened, the report added.

The report said that it will not be a prediction to identify all the gang activities with the Susurluk incident and to say that local camps and bullies would take over the state soon if great remedy projects are not adopted.

Briefing about Mahmut Yildirim who is known by the public with the code name of ''Yesil'', the Susurluk report said, ''his name is Mahmut Yildirim. His code names are Ahmet Bilgin, Ahmet Demir, Mehmet Komurcu, Sakalli, Terminator... born in Bingol in 1953. He works several times for MIT, JITEM, and the Security department. In the identity cards he is called a psychological war expert. Yet, his real duty is to commit crimes. His assignment places are Bingol, Genc, Tatvan, Tunceli, Nazimiye, Ovacik, Mut, Diyarbakir, Elazig, Antalya, Ankara and Istanbul. The Intelligence units of the state know about his activities, from whom he collects illegal money and who he has killed. In fact, he is a state official. He appears to be a worker at the Elazig Ferro Krom Installations.

Yesil argues with the police while entering a night club and he is brought to the security department. He undergoes a thorough investigation here. His code name was Hasan Tarlaci when he was captured. The Police break his ribs and MIT helps him to receive medical treatment. The report says that Orhan Tasanlar, the Ankara Security Chief investigates him and searches for his links with MIT. As an outcome, the MIT officials including the MIT Counter- Terror Department Chief Mehmet Eymur come and take Yesil and bring him to MIT. Meanwhile, it was also revealed from Yesil's telephone notebook that he had links with Ibrahim Sahin, Mehmet Eymur, Abdullah Catli, Sirri Sakik and Sami Hostan.

Yesil collects illegal money from drug smugglers such as Hursit Han. Yesil addresses Eymur as ''father'' which is an indication of the existence of the problem. That is what we call a Susurluk incident.


The report also widely included Omer Lutfu Topal who is known as the ''king of casinos.'' Quotations from the report said:

''...the money activities of Topal is a great incident in itself. It has been reported that the Azeri Prime Minister Haydar Aliyev's son has a 500, 000 US dollar debt to Topal. It is as though the Imperial Company invaded Turkmenistan. The Turkish Eximbank credits opened to Turkmenistan went to the Imperial Company. The State financed Topal here. It came to a point where the Imperial Company and Topal began to intervene with Turkmenistan's natural gas and oil reserves.''

So the dam finely breaks on the the information Sibel Edmonds has held all these many long years! I salute her courage. This is a good day for freedom! 

Kudos to Brad Friedman, and hats off to all of you who are adding further information, and details here. Thnak you so much.

This should blow the lid off, and if these were ordinary times, and we had a real media it would. We don't. We have the truth, we have the internet, and we have us. And as imperfect as all of us are, we will prevail over these criminals, and the media dogs who take fat corporate paychecks to protect them.


Now folks, please read this whole post, not just the title ;) :

Don't let the Sibel Edmonds story SUCKER you ...
http://www.opednews.com/articles/opedne_ladybroa_080106_don_t_let_the_sibel_.htm

THE REAL headline to this story should read:

State Dept released 911 suspects at the request of targets of the FBI's investigation.State Dept released 911 suspects at the request of targets of the FBI's investigation - as revealed by Sibel Edmonds.

And why did THAT happen? To cover up "state secrets" showing how the US, the Saudis, Isreal and Pakistan were all involved in further nuclear proliferation.

Finally, at long last, we are hearing Sibel Edmonds speaking her TRUTH.

Long awaited, a Rupert Murdoch-owned UK daily, the Times, has printed an astonishingly long piece, front page, on what her long gagged information actually IS. To make a very long and detailed story into an executive summary:

Sibel Edmonds was an FBI translator who came to know that Pakistan's Dr. AQ Khan had set up a very nasty black market in nuclear weapons. She was aghast at the lax (and troubling) method of hiring translators who were not just transcriping tapes, but also at the way these translators were, or were NOT hired. It lead to her being able to see how evidence of an impending attack on the United States, specifically on a large office complex in the US would be attacked by airplanes was being ignored and the evidence of that being covered up. The story on what was happening has been covered on BBC's panorama and can be viewed here. I recommend starting your viewing at the 4:40 minute mark. A brief written article about this Panorama special can be viewed here.

Edmonds also claims that "moles," mainly PhD students, received assistance from a "high-ranking State Department official" who gave them security clearance to work in "sensitive nuclear research facilities."

Further, Sibel worked on translating tapes of those who were queried and investigated AFTER 9/11 .. she was able to identify, This led her to look very closely at the role of Pakistan, Israel and the Saudis in terms of control of the Middle East with the specific cooperation of the US Department of State. While today's Times' article does not specify Mark Grossman, No. 3 in the State Department, this is already widely known to be the man who handled the transactions and the flight from the US of the 9/11 hijackers.

We are at last being given a bone to chew on. The establisment is letting us have our "SECRETS EXPOSED" meme for 2008. But there is an inherent danger: because this one covers some VERY IMPORTANT ground - nuclear arms proliferation, government coverup and lack of transparency, 9/11 truth, reprisals towards those who don't "toe" the government line during any administration involved . we are apt to lose sight of something very important. IMPEACHMENT.

Sibel Edmonds is a US Whistleblower, BUT her story has not been told in the US press and that my friends, is why I am writing this to sound a warning to you all -- dont' get suckered, keep working for impeachment and the removal of Nancy Pelosi, who knows this story backwards and forwards, as PELOSI was on the intelligence committee that has buried it!! So has Henry Waxman, who said he was for hearings, but now as Chairman does nothing to see that they happen. Are they blackmailed?

Impeachment is the ONLY way to find out. The rest of the world is not going to be amused to read the whole story of the US assisting nuclear proliferation whilst NOT follwing the Geneva accords .. and as I am constantly pointing out, IF the US does not follow these agreements, it is legally permissable for another nation to attack the United States - and that includes with nuclear materials.

With impeachment proceedings, we could have subpoenas with TEETH, since nothing else has worked to expose how all these George HW BuZh players were just waiting in the wings to occupy their new positions when Dubya came into power!! Cyncial? You bet. These guys are truly evil, more evil than anything our normal minds can imagine.

Wide dissemination of this story needs to be a first priority, not because it is sensational and stunning (which it most definitely is and worthy of any great espionage novelist) - but because this will definitely show how nuclear proliferation is one of the greatest war crimes that has been going on .. and paid for with the taxpayer's DIME, to boot. Possible avenues for LEANING ON THE US MEDIA include, at this point, appeals to Keith Olbermann, John Stewart and Stephen Colbert. Amy Goodman has already done some fine work on US officials making money engaged in the NEXT generation of US Politico nuclear energy profiteers engaged in the Presidential race, but this might not give us truth seekers wide enough coverage to get the entire nation to see what has happened and what is at stake if the truth is not told in its entirety.

It is time to get on your phones and ask your representatives WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO DO, I mean actually DO, to have, finally, Congressional hearings on this important revelation?? Henry Waxman has stalled and stalled on this issue - it's time to "get heavy" with CONgress on this. We are talking TREASON here . plain and simple.

Obviously as the US seems to be preparing to send troops to Pakistan (US special ops going in is already in the news) .. the fact that we allowed them to be armed with nukes is of high interest in today's news market place. This actually goes all the way back to REAGAN, and is reflected in the Solarz Amendment .. so more criminal act are hinted at.

POINT: This is a huge, Byzantine plot that is totally bipartisan and getting appropriate help in the US Congress is not going to be an easy job .. Just look at the coverup over Barksdale and our own (US) mess in handling nukes and then transfer all that happened into a Pakistani context. [As a sidenote, at Fargo, they STILL don't have enough regulations in place to pass an inspection which has been postponed indefinitely ...) It would seem that the lack of oversight that Sibel has pointed out left a hole that lead to the ISI stranglehold in Pakistan, which many contend lead to the death of Benazir Bhutto. Whatever your feelings about Benazir are, and I have plenty myself, she was ASSASSINATED over this coverup ...

 For those new to the Sibel Edmonds story (which is nearly of MYTHIC proportions!), there is a lot of ground to cover now. There are websites to visit, comments to read, and a HUGE plot that stretches over many years to unravel. There is the feeling of pride in Sibel's struggle to process internally as well as a feeling of relief that certain bloggers have never given up on trying to get the story out there. A special THANK YOU and appreciation for LUKERY's blog has developed over the years at WOTISITGOOD4 dot blogspot dot com.

Questions to be answered:

Will Sibel finally getting onto the mainstream news record put her at further risk??

Can a Special Prosecutor be found to investigate her claims - who is not already seriously compromised ? Henry Waxman, who would be the logical choice to head up hearings cannot be relied on; there are three guesses as to WHY This is .. he is being blackmailed, Nancy Pelosi won't let him, he is too close to AIPEC and the Israeli lobby and it's officials to allow it.

Why were US business interests put above the interests of the US Citizen when it came to FBI/counterintelligence/counterterrorism translations and investigations pursued??

How do we get more media coverage over the coming weeks?

How does this all relate to Plamegate and Brewster Jennings?? Valerie Plame was tracking AQ Khan -- and how do we get this in as part of an impeachment and war crimes tribunal process!!

Was Pakistan's nuclear force built up as a way to secure Afghani land to grow poppies for the US drug-dealing syndicates? Or just a diabolical Israeli plan to carve up the Middle East and benefit from Balkanization of the 'stans??

Are there in fact two sets of standards when it comes to getting security clearance in the United States??

How is Iran going to react to this news? Afterall, it's not okay for them to have nukes .. but it IS okay for Israel to facilitate an ARAB nation getting nukes. Iran is NOT arab .. and has been patient with Israel and the United States despite EXTREME provocation ...

Were the FISA-court approved wiretaps aimed at high level officials who just might spill the beans .. as has been alleged??

Sibel doesn't say anything about the photos - or the people in the photos - but we can reasonably presume that they are the 21 guilty people in her case.

Sibel has broken the photos into three different groups.


The first group contains current and former Pentagon and State Department officials. The second group is current and former congressmen. The 3rd group includes people who all appear to work at think tanks - primarily WINEP, The Washington Institute for Near East Policy

I have placed tons of information and videos at both my blogs as well, ladybroadoak and stop the radiation!
You can get regular updates at LUKERY's fine blog, at Daily Kos and at Brad blog.

You can thank Lukery ONLINE at this thread. We may end up owing him alot in terms of personal security in upcoming years!!

Remember by pursuing the truth, and looking for ways to find LEGAL REMEDIES, we can return to the RULE OF LAW and the real war criminals can be held accountable. We have been traumatized for too many years already.
