    and the Pakis, but what was the role of the Israelis?

    Thanks for your ongoing reporting on this story - your critique of the Times series is particularly valuable.

    Say hi to statesecrets for me.

      Hi Mark - you can read the UK TImes fisrt article for starters: http://www.timesonline.co.uk/...

      "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."

      and

      "Edmonds also claims that a number of senior officials in the Pentagon had helped Israeli and Turkish agents."

      Bilmen also worked with the Israelis.

      Added: Karni - who bought the stuff of Bilmen and sent it to Pakistan - is also Israeli.

      •  AIPAC (0+ / 0-)

        was involved with the information on the tapes Sibel listened to, wasn't it, Luke?

        If so, has anyone tried to establish a social-networking diagram of the people involved with JINSA and AIPAC?  And from there, tracing the network into the ATC?

        I mean, we know that AIPAC was instrumental in establishing the ATC.

        If we could establish a social-networking matrix of those people, the Israeli connections might become more exposed.
