Valerie Plame Wilson Describes Sibel Edmonds Disclosures as ‘Stunning’

What disclosures are those? Treason.

Sunday Times 1,2,3. Philip Giraldi 1,2,3.

Now BradBlog reports to us an interview from Tuesday, February 12th 2008, in which “outed” CIA agent Valerie Plame Wilson discusses (at 39:00) the allegation that former State Department official Marc Grossman tipped off the Turks and Pakistanis to her nuclear black market-monitoring CIA front company years before we ever heard of her. From Bradblog:

[Plame] says she has been following recent blockbuster series in British paper concerning U.S. nuclear secrets espionage, allegations that her [CIA] cover company, Brewster Jennings, was exposed by a former high-ranking State Department official as long ago as 2001.

Former CIA operative Valerie Plame Wilson says the recent disclosures in the UK’s Sunday Times concerning the sale of U.S. nuclear secrets to the foreign black market, as aided by high-ranking government officials, are “stunning.”

The previously covert agent, who had worked in the agency’s counter-proliferation division for years, monitoring traffic in the nuclear black market under the guise of a cover company named Brewster Jennings until being outed by Administration officials, was asked about the recent series of explosive stories in the British paper during an interview this morning with Florida radio host Henry Raines of American AM.

Those disclosures include allegations that Brewster Jennings was outed to Turkish officials as a CIA front, by State Department official Marc Grossman, as early as 2001.

That would be as opposed to by Robert Novak in July of 2003.

Plame says that she can’t confirm it, but she sure doesn’t sound doubtful of Edmonds’ story.

  1. The comment is certainly significant. However, did anyone ever wonder at the “basics”. How easily every nation on the earth is a “threat” if the US, (or, of course, Israel) merely says it’s a threat. As far as “basics” go, did anyone ever wonder how a nation of five million people, (Israel), is now the fourth largest weapons arms merchant on the globe, surpassing even Great Britain? Might I suggest that its, (Israel’s) “product” on the global arms market consists of equipment and plans either stolen by the legion of Pollards in the US, or simply “drop shipped” by interested parties.
    The notion that a nation the size of Cleveland has done all these things, including becoming the world’s fourth largest arms seller, with five million people and little industry, is a riotous fantasy, and one that only an ignorant American public could ever buy into, (no pun intended).

    1. Having worked in the military electronics industry, I have seen military electronics companys with Zionist management (LORAL of years back comes to mind) establish satellite operations in Israel and then with a lot of legislative help get rid of “American only” restrictions so that Israel could get access to highly advanced technology paid for dearly by America. Israel didn’t need spies. A healthy feeling of tribal allegiance between Zionistic Jews in key places of American industry to Israel grew Israel’s military technology industry. Unfortuneatly Israel sees no threat except from Arabs, so that they have no problem selling their “gift” to interests opposed to America’s interest like China. This parasidical relationship between America and Israel will continue and grow until Americans view Israel as a foreign country and not as some fulfillment of divine will. I can’t see that happening with baboons screaming about threats from Islam, constantly.

  2. Americans are the dumbest people in the first world! Remember the TV show about nothing? Well, Seinfeld was at least entertaining. We have just witnessed a primary season about nothing. Three candidates, 2 dems and 1 repub, had something to say. All the rest did not. The 3 were marginalized, ignored, laughed at, slandered, and then written out of the script. Remember, McCrazy got 40% of republican votes from people that ID'd themselves as REPUBLICANS AGAINST THE WAR! Can you find dumber people? I rest my case.

    1. Americans capacity to rationalize genocides and torture in their name has far surpassed that of Germans during Nazis regim of Uncle Adolf.

        1. Comrade Scott, all you need to do is read and understand history.

          Start with the pilgrims and conclude with Police State Act a.k.a “patriot act”.

          Billions of innocent humans have been slaughtered in your name.

  3. Hmmm … 2008-2001 = 7 years and it hits BRITISH press! If there were ANY doubts that the US media is purely a propaganda outlet for the corporations and your evil government … well, they should by now (7 years later) be dispersed!
    What surprises me the most is the fact that most of the US population does not care! Do they operate out a part of your brains at birth or are you guys just sheep?
    Well done Ms Edmonds and watch out for Evil-Dick and his killer squad (CIA). I am quite sure yo’re next on their ‘to do’ list!

  4. Americans have been trained not to think by our public school system. Our schools were designed that way on purpose. People train for their jobs but critical thinking is suppressed. John Taylor Gatto did a marvelous job exposing this in his book the Underground History of American education. Check his website out.

    1. unrelated to the above blog


      i presume you are the one at CR’s blog as well – thanks for your posts but really drdave is not worth your energy – he’s a waste of it

      take care and best regards

    2. Is their evidence that Americans have been trained not to think by accredited parochial and other religious schools? Are these schools designed that way on purpose?

  5. to address two issues:
    #1. The political stupidity of the American people: they are not stupid. They believe in trickle down from the rich elites who run the country and they well know that their standard of living depends on sucking off the rest of the world. So the ball is in your court: UK, EU, China, Russia??? Except everyone is interconnected and no one wants to bring down the deck of cards. Like switch oil payments to euros or another standard?

    #2 Remember how the whole Iran question brought in the Republican Ronald Reagan? Well, watch this scenario. McCrazy wins the 2008 election because
    the Israeli crazies ( Netanyahu/Likud) attack Iran and the US jumps in to “save” their ally. Will the American public in a time of war threat ( remember the crazies in this country have the Iranians as the 4th Reich starting WWIII) vote for a woman? This won’t play out like the Falklands farce with Ms. Thatcher.

    1. The American people are no more or less stupid than the other 95% of the world’s population. The difference between them and Europe is that they have imbibed irrational modes of thought to an almost unprecedented degree.

  6. Now I get it the 40% of Republicans that were self identified as against the war that voted for McCainiac are against the way it is being run, they want it escalated, they want more blood, nukes, etc. That lunatic is just the man they want.

  7. All the people that used to think were nuts are now making sense. Scientific American ran a disturbing story about flouride in its last issue. I remember my father the physician telling me that people who were against flouride were crazy/disturbed people.

    We need to have a national reconciliation of how we got from there to here. My suggestion is to start around 1960 to present day. Somebody please ask George Bush Sr. where he was when JFK was shot. He doesn’t seem to remember.

  8. Why did it take Valerie Plame so long to learn about Sibel Edmond’s disclosures, or did it? I still don’t trust Valerie Plame.

  9. Don’t miss out on the larger picture here..

    Sibel Edmonds has snared one tentacle of the octopus that has been dealing in narcotics, nuclear secrets, and illegal weapons sales for decades. The blog Antifascist Calling has just posted another very detailed piece on this international criminal network, titled Deep State, Corporate Crime. It’s a must-read.

    The term “deep state” refers to a political system, composed of high-level elements within the military, security and intelligence services, the judicial branch, and important commanders of organized crime. Although the term originated to describe Turkey’s political system, it also correctly describes the USA, Great Britain, Pakistan, Israel, and others from roughly the 1970s through today. A peek at the ATC board members listed in Deep State, Corporate Crime gives one an idea of the numerous players who benefit politically and financially from deep state politics. Keep in mind the ATC board is one of hundreds of deep state lobbies and CIA cutouts created to carry out ilegal and deadly deep state activities.

    Deep state activities during the 1970s and 1980s are well documented, though higly complex. The now defunct bank BCCI was one of the primary institutions used to launder the money used in this illegal narcotics, nuclear, and weapons trade. Although it is well-known that BCCI functioned as the CIA’s money-laundering facility, Democratic Senator John Kerry helped whitewash the CIA’s connections to BCCI during the investigations of the failed bank’s criminal activities during poppy Bush’s presidency.

    While the Bush crime family is well-known, with poppy Bush a former CIA chief, and generations of war profiteering and graft, the role of the Clinton crime family in deep state politics is more well-hidden. Here are a few of Clinton’s connections to the 1990s deep state. Support of the terrorist Kosovo Liberation Army, well-known for heroin trafficking, and the war on Serbia to ensure a secure flow of heroin from Turkey to western Europe is one. Another is the assistance governor Clinton provided to help cover for the CIA’s cocaine trafficking into Mena, AK. One of the best summaries of Bill Clinton’s connections to deep state politics is in this chart (top of page), depicting the relationships various Clinton associate had to BCCI, and this compilation of sales and thefts of weapons techology to China.

    To learn more about the USA’s deep state activities prior to 1990, start with The Politics of Heroin; CIA Complicity In The Global Drug Trade by Alfred McCoy, The Last Circle by Carolyn Marshall, and books by Peter Dale Scott.

    It’s a steep learning curve to bring oneself up to speed on decades of CIA and deep state criminal activity, but it is crucial to know the context of Sibel Edmonds’ revelations, 9-11, and the threat posed by unaccountable intelligence agencies that also control much of the world’s narcotics and illegal weapons trade. The threat posed to democratic societies, and the world in general, by intelligence agencies run amok makes CIA asset al Qaeda look like a cuddy teddy bear. The war on terror is a mere cover for the profits and operations of those who control deep state politics.

  10. No comment has yet pointed out the obvious. Americans on the right, left and in the middle are caught up in the delusion/myth of U.S. invincibility.

    Nothing can remain secret for very long, certainly not for 75 years, and the damage from nukes begins when they are made. Even if they are not used, they go off slowly in the environment, in the genome.

    Any nation state or other group that constructs them is the moral equivalent of a suicide bomber.

    The same, of course, is true for so-called ‘civilian use’ of nukes to generate electricity; the death and destruction is spread out over a longer time frame (a few hundred thousand years).

    If you insist on the foolish pride of nationalism, why not put it to good use and lead by example? Peace and Justice in a Nuclear-Free World!

  11. Why are americans so stupid as an american I can tell you we get the information the MSM wants us to have not the information we need we dont have news people in the news rooms and newspapers anymore we have corprate flunkies diseminateing what and what not to report they will never let us know the whole truth if its gonna hurt the powers that be that are responsible for the huge tax breaks they get and them being able to dominate the public square and opinion we are in a sad time in our history information wise and some people just dont give a damm some have a see no evil hear no evil aproach they will just go tru life with there heads up there collective asses as long as you tell them everything is goin just honkey dory even tho everything is being drug tru the sewer
