A week or so ago I wrote a diary here: Chris Floyd ties Bush and BCCI to Sibel Edmonds bombshell
It received 465 comments and was on the recommended list for quite a while. It seemed there was a real interest in this explosive story. At the time, I didn't realize that the kossack Lukery had been all over this, and has an amazing record of reporting about this case here.
So when his follow-up happened, today -- an even more explosive revelation, again from the Times in the UK -- that the FBI is deliberately covering up the existence of its case file which implicates US government officials in corruption and the trading of black market nuclear weapons, I expected it to get some notice here.
It barely made a blip. Instead, we have (sigh ....) candidate diary after candidate diary ....
So for those of you who might actually appreciate some news of the Biggest Story of the (7 year nightmare of Bushco) here's your chance to have your eyeballs pop out of your head:
(Sibel Edmonds) says the FBI was investigating a Turkish and Israeli-run network that paid high-ranking American officials to steal nuclear weapons secrets. These were then sold on the international black market to countries such as Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.
One of the documents relating to the case was marked 203A-WF-210023. Last week, however, the FBI responded to a freedom of information request for a file of exactly the same number by claiming that it did not exist. But The Sunday Times has obtained a document signed by an FBI official showing the existence of the file.
Edmonds believes the crucial file is being deliberately covered up by the FBI because its contents are explosive. She accuses the agency of an “outright lie”.
As Lukery put it in his diary on this:
The FBI's comments demonstrate conclusively that either:
a) They are lying, or
b) They have destroyed the evidence of this multi-year investigation concerning the corruption of high-level US officials, the nuclear black market, money laundering and narcotics trafficking.
Furthermore, this new revelation ties in the Valerie Plame scandal with this one. Check it out -- Brewster Jennings, the company that was Plame's CIA front, was investigating this very scandal when she was outed and her career -- and presumably the work on this case -- destroyed by the Bush administration:
The official document obtained by The Times has some very damning evidence regarding Marc Grossman, former #3 at the State Department and former Ambassador to Turkey. Two weeks ago, The Times ran an explosive article detailing how Marc Grossman was a mole for foreign criminal groups which stole American nuclear secrets and sold them to the highest bidder.
According to the latest Times article, they have an anonymous letter which:
claims the government official (Grossman) 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.
Former CIA agent Phil Giraldi, who was stationed in Turkey, is another who is familiar with these matters. Giraldi wrote a terrific article for the American Conservative in 2006 describing Sibel's case. In Kill The Messenger, a documentary about the nuclear black market element of Sibel case, Giraldi says:
"And that Brewster Jennings was, apparently, working against the target of Turkey, meaning that Turkey was being investigated by the CIA as a proliferator of weapons."
Journalist Chris Deliso wrote a terrific article in Nov 2005 linking Marc Grossman, Brewster Jennings, the American Turkish Council and the Turkish connection to the nuclear black market. Although the new Times article doesn't mention Grossman by name, it is clear that Grossman is again the unnamed former official in this article.
So hey, come on, people, this is the story we've all been waiting for. And it's being overlooked while everybody argues about "is Bill Clinton a racist" or whatEVER the F**K you people are arguing about here 24/7!
I'll repeat that: This is the story we've all been waiting for.
Let's get it out there.
