Former FBI translator and whistle-blower Sibel Edmonds has released a list of photos of those she claims to have overheard in wiretapped conversations (that took place, coincidentally, before Bush's illegal wiretapping program was put in place)of selling nuclear secrets to untrustworthy allies such as Pakistan. Many of the people involved were high ranking officials within the State Department during both the Clinton and Bush administrations and include the self proclaimed prince of darkness, Richard Perle. (Also named are Pentagon OSP Douglas Feith and convicted AIPAC spy Larry Franklin)
Ms. Edmonds has been under a gag order not to speak, because what she heard America's national security would be severely impaired.
Edmonds contends that an international nuclear smuggling ring, associated with the intelligence agencies of Pakistan, Turkey, and Israel, has been permitted to operate in the U.S. with impunity. Our government, she claims, knew all about it yet, in order to placate the foreign governments involved, allowed a vast criminal enterprise to carry out its activities, including money laundering, narcotics trafficking, and espionage involving efforts to steal U.S. nuclear technology.

And, it seems, a trail leading right up to 9-11, what with Pakistan ISI head Gen Mahmoud Ahmad, the gentleman who wired $100,000 to Mohammed Atta's Dubai bank account prior to that fateful day. Add to that the news report that one Louai al-Sakka, who claims to have trained several of the 9/11 hijackers at a camp situated outside Istanbul in the resort area of the Yalova mountains, and you get the idea that something fishy was going on there. And it was going on right under the government's nose, while people within the current administration were blocking any investigation of any wrong doing. And seeing the close proximity some of these people had to the vice-president's office.........

Pearle and Feith, eh? Didn't some retired general once call Feith the "dumbest shithead in the world" or something like that? Pearle ain't far behind, if that's the case. Maybe they've been hanging out with Ollie North and are running a covert "arms for brains" deal.

Now Lew... Pakistan is our good buddy. How else can ya explain the $220 million Pakistan reaped in debt relief, plus $60 million a month for its logistical support for the American military?
Stop laughing, Lew.
Seriously... stop laughing.

Atta... what an interesting character, at least according to Daniel Hopsicker's book "Welcome to Terrorland" he was.

And I'm actually shocked that Sibel is still around to tell such secrets. I've always kind of expected her to show up in a seedy motel bathtub with her wrists slit and a belly full of booze and sleeping pills.... and a mysterious "self-inflicted" bullet wound in the back of her head.

Speaking of people being "dealt with", I think if Obama is the candidate, he should pick Hillary as his VP. And if... God forbid... if Hillary is the candidate, she should pick Obama for her VP choice. No... I don't suggest doing so because I have any love for Hillary (for the record, I'm a hardcore Kucinich fan who has fondness for Edwards). No, see doing so might render them both assassination-proof from the foaming at the mouth wingnuts.
