Steve Rosen and Keith Weissman

Lawyers for two former American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) lobbyists facing espionage charges have subpoenaed Rice, National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley, Deputy National Security Adviser Elliott Abrams and several others to testify at their trial next year.

Prosecutors had challenged the subpoenas in federal court.

Lobbyists Steve Rosen and Keith Weissman have argued that the Israeli interest group played an unofficial but sanctioned role in crafting foreign policy and that Rice and others can confirm it. If they ultimately testify in court, the trial in federal court in a Washington suburb could offer a behind-the-scenes look at the way US foreign policy is crafted.

The lobbyists are accused of receiving classified information from a now-convicted Pentagon official and relaying it to an Israeli official and the press. The information included details about the al-Qaida terror network, US policy in Iran and the bombing of the Khobar Towers dormitory in Saudi Arabia, federal prosecutors said.

But defense attorneys suggested that top US officials regularly used the lobbyists as a go-between as they crafted Middle East policy. If so, attorneys say, how are Rosen and Weissman supposed to know the same behavior that is expected of them on one day is criminal the next?

US District Judge T.S. Ellis III said the lobbyists have a right to argue that "they believed the meetings charged in the indictment were simply further examples of the government's use of AIPAC as a diplomatic back channel."

Defense attorney Abbe Lowell cheered the ruling.

"For over two years, we have been explaining that our clients' conduct was lawful and completely consistent with how the US government delt with AIPAC and other foreign policy groups," Lowell said on behalf of both defendants. "We look forward to the trial."

Ellis left open the possibility that the Bush administration may challenge the subpoenas on the grounds they would reveal priviliged information. But the judge said his ruling Friday "may trump a valid governmental privilege."

If so, that could force the government to decide whether to allow the testimony or drop the case.

Neither the State Department nor the Justice Department had an immediate comment.

Among those subpoenaed in the case were: former Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz; former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage; and Marc Grossman, former undersecretary of state for political affairs.

Condoleezza Rice, à la barre
Un juge fédéral des Etats-Unis a décidé de citer à comparaître la Secrétaire d'Etat Condoleezza Rice et le Conseiller pour la sécurité intérieure Stephen Hadley dans le cadre d'une affaire d'espionnage, en relation avec les activités des lobbies de l'« American Israel Public Affairs Committee » (AIPAC). La Cour examine, actuellement, le dossier de Steven Rosen et de Keith Weissman, qui ont été accusés, en 2005, aux côtés d'un responsable du Département de la défense, Lawrence Franklin, de conspiration, en vue de communiquer des informations relevant de la défense nationale, entre 1999 et 2004, à la suite d'une longue enquête montrant qu'ils avaient transmis des renseignements sensibles et classés « Top secret » du Pentagone à Israël. Franklin, qui a été l'assistant de l'ancien sous-Secrétaire à la défense Douglas Feith, a plaidé coupable, et purge actuellement sa peine de prison. La nouvelle sur l'espionnage pratiqué par l'AIPAC a provoqué une vague de colère et de protestation dans l'opinion publique contre les activités d'espionnage israéliennes. Même si les lobbies sionistes ont une grande influence aux Etats-Unis et au sein de l'administration américaine, cependant, cela ne les empêche pas d'espionner leur allié politique et militaire le plus proche. Ceci dit, ces échanges de renseignements entre les hauts responsables américains et l'AIPAC ne datent pas d'hier ou d'aujourd'hui. Dans les années 80, le cas de l'espion Jonathan Pollard a fait éclater un grand scandale aux États-Unis. Les avocats de Steven Rosen et de Keith Weissman ont demandé que soient entendus Mme Rice et Stephen Hadley, pour témoigner au procès de leurs clients, afin de pouvoir les disculper. Cependant, certains observateurs pensent que la Maison Blanche pourrait empêcher une telle comparution, « car la présence des hauts responsables américains au tribunal, ajoutent-ils, révélera sans doute les dessous des relations qu'entretiennent Washington avec le lobby israélien et mettra par conséquent en danger la politique moyen-orientale des États-Unis. » L'AIPAC est actuellement le lobby le plus influent sur la scène politique américaine, qui dirige même les prises de position de Washington à par rapport au Moyen-Orient, à tel point que l'ancien Président américain, Jimmy Carter, a estimé que son pays était prisonnier des intrigues du lobby Israélien.

Rice pourrait témoigner dans une affaire d'espionnage impliquant Israël
WASHINGTON (AFP)3 novembre 2007 - La secrétaire d'Etat américaine Condoleezza Rice et d'autres hauts responsables peuvent être convoqués pour déposer devant un tribunal dans une affaire d'espionnage mettant en cause des lobbyistes pro-israéliens, selon la décision prise vendredi par un juge fédéral américain.

Le juge T. S. Ellis, du tribunal fédéral d'Alexandria (Virginie, est) a autorisé les avocats de Steven Rosen et Keith Weissman, d'anciens lobbyistes de l'American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), le principal lobby juif à Washington, à convoquer Mme Rice, ainsi que le conseiller présidentiel américain à la sécurité nationale, Stephen Hadley.

Treize autres actuels ou anciens hauts responsables gouvernementaux, dont l'ancien numéro deux du Pentagone, Paul Wolfowitz, pourraient être appelés à déposer dans ce procès qui pourrait avoir lieu à partir de janvier, selon des documents de justice.

Pour ces 15 personnes, sur les 20 convocations demandées, le juge Ellis a rejeté les arguments du gouvernement selon lesquels leurs témoignages n'apporteraient rien et seraient défavorables à la défense.

La Maison Blanche n'a pas souhaité commenter la décision du juge.

"Nous sommes au courant de la décision autorisant des convocations potentielles si l'affaire Rosen et Weissman aboutissait à un procès", a déclaré Gordon Johndroe, le porte-parole du Conseil national de sécurité de la Maison Blanche.

"D'après ce que nous comprenons, aucune convocation n'a été délivrée à ce stade. Nous ne pouvons pas faire d'autre commentaire, étant donné qu'il s'agit de poursuites criminelles en cours", a-t-il ajouté.

"Nous ne commentons pas une affaire judiciaire en cours", a renchéri un porte-parole du département d'Etat, Tom Casey.

Steven Rosen et Keith Weissman sont accusés d'avoir transmis à des personnes non autorisées des informations classées secret défense par les autorités américaines alors qu'ils travaillaient pour l'AIPAC.

Ils espèrent que le témoignage des hauts responsables appelés à déposer soutiendra leur ligne de défense, selon laquelle ils n'étaient pas impliqués dans des activités d'espionnage.

"Les accusés estiment que le témoignage de ces responsables actuels ou passés tendront à montrer que leurs actions ne reflètent rien d'autre que la pratique officielle des discussions par des canaux officieux, bien connue à Washington", indique le document.

MM. Rosen et Weissman ont été accusés en 2005 aux côtés d'un responsable du département de la Défense, Lawrence Franklin, de conspiration en vue de communiquer des informations relevant de la défense nationale, à la suite d'une longue enquête du FBI (police fédérale) montrant qu'ils avaient échangé des renseignements sensibles entre eux et avec Israël.

Selon des responsables du gouvernement, M. Franklin a transmis des informations secrètes à Israël entre 1999 et 2004 en utilisant le couvert de l'AIPAC, au moment où Rosen était le directeur politique du lobby et où Weissman y travaillait comme spécialiste de l'Iran.

Franklin, qui a été l'assistant de l'ancien sous-secrétaire à la Défense Douglas Feith, a plaidé coupable après une série d'audiences à huis-clos et a été condamné en janvier 2006 à 12 ans et 7 mois de prison, ainsi qu'à 10.000 dollars d'amende.

La décision du juge permettra aux avocats de Rosen et Weissman de convoquer Mme Rice, M. Hadley, ainsi que Richard Armitage, Marc Grossman, Matthew Bryza et William Burns, tous anciens hauts responsables du département d'Etat, et également les anciens responsables du département de la Défense Douglas Feith et Paul Wolfowitz, ainsi que des personnalités fréquentant les cercles de la diplomatie et de la sécurité nationale.

Sibel Edmonds has recently updated her website with a gallery of 21 photographs in 3 groups, ostensibly of parties guilty in her case. Three of the photographs are simply question marks, for reasons as yet unknown.
As Edmonds has said, her case involves "highly-recognizable, highly-known names", as can be confirmed below.

So what are these men guilty of? In response to this summary of the allegations, Edmonds as said: "as far as published articles go, this one nails it 100%":
Sibel Edmonds, the Turkish FBI translator turned whistleblower who has been subjected to a gag order could provide a major insight into how neoconservatives distort US foreign policy and enrich themselves at the same time. On one level, her story appears straightforward: several Turkish lobbying groups allegedly bribed congressmen to support policies favourable to Ankara. But beyond that, the Edmonds revelations become more serpentine and appear to involve AIPAC, Israel and a number of leading neoconservatives who have profited from the Turkish connection. Israel has long cultivated a close relationship with Turkey since Ankara's neighbours and historic enemies - Iran, Syria and Iraq - are also hostile to Tel Aviv. Islamic Turkey has also had considerable symbolic value for Israel, demonstrating that hostility to Muslim neighbours is not a sine qua non for the Jewish state.

Turkey benefits from the relationship by securing general benevolence and increased aid from the US Congress - as well as access to otherwise unattainable military technology. The Turkish General Staff has a particular interest because much of the military spending is channeled through companies in which the generals have a financial stake, making for a very cozy and comfortable business arrangement. The commercial interest has also fostered close political ties, with the American Turkish Council, American Turkish Cultural Alliance and the Assembly of Turkish American Associations all developing warm relationships with AIPAC and other Jewish and Israel advocacy groups throughout the US.

Someone has to be in the middle to keep the happy affair going, so enter the neocons, intent on securing Israel against all comers and also keen to turn a dollar. In fact the neocons seem to have a deep and abiding interest in Turkey, which, under other circumstances, might be difficult to explain. Doug Feith's International Advisors Inc, a registered agent for Turkey in 1989 - 1994, netted $600,000 per year from Turkey, with Richard Perle taking $48,000 annually as a consultant. Other noted neoconservatives linked to Turkey are former State Department number three, Marc Grossman, current Pentagon Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Eric Edelman, Paul Wolfowitz and former congressman Stephen Solarz. The money involved does not appear to come from the Turkish government, and FBI investigators are trying to determine its source and how it is distributed. Some of it may come from criminal activity, possibly drug trafficking, but much more might come from arms dealing. Contracts in the hundreds of millions, or even billions of dollars provide considerable fat for those well placed to benefit. Investigators are also looking at Israel's particular expertise in the illegal sale of US military technology to countries like China and India. Fraudulent end-user certificates produced by Defense Ministries in Israel and Turkey are all that is needed to divert military technology to other, less benign, consumers. The military-industrial-complex/neocon network is also well attested. Doug Feith has been associated with Northrup Grumman for years, while defense contractors fund many neocon-linked think tanks and "information" services. Feith, Perle and a number of other neocons have long had beneficial relationships with various Israeli defense contractors.

While Edmonds claims the Times published only 20% of her allegations, antiwar.com's Justin Raimondo has published a good analysis that gets to the heart of some of the deeper implications of her case, including Israeli involvement in 9/11, and the American-Israeli-Turkish-Pakistani-"Al-Qaeda" (i.e., CIA/Mossad/ISI) terror connections.





by , January 08, 2008
"The next president may have to deal with a nuclear attack," averred ABC’s Charles Gibson at Saturday night’s Democratic presidential debate. "The day after a nuclear weapon goes off in an American city, what would we wish we had done to prevent it and what will we actually do on the day after?"
It’s a question that frightens everyone, and one to which there is no easy answer: none of the candidates really rose to the occasion, and most seemed baffled. Hillary Clinton made sure she used the word "retaliation" with unusual emphasis, and when pressed on the question of how she would retaliate against "stateless" terrorists nevertheless insisted that she would indeed retaliate against someone, because the perpetrators had to have a "haven" somewhere within a state.
Yes, well, that’s not necessarily true, but what if that "haven" is… right here in the U.S.? Or, perhaps, in a NATO country, say, Turkey?
Say what?
Impossible, you say? Not if you believe Sibel Edmonds, a former translator for the FBI who listened in on hundreds of telephone intercepts and has now told the London Times that several top U.S. government officials conspired with foreign agents to steal U.S. nuclear secrets and sell them on the black market. The Times reports:
"Edmonds described how foreign intelligence agents had enlisted the support of U.S. officials to acquire a network of moles in sensitive military and nuclear institutions.
"Among the hours of covert tape recordings, she says she heard evidence that one well-known senior official in the U.S. State Department was being paid by Turkish agents in Washington who were selling the information on to black market buyers, including Pakistan. The name of the official – who has held a series of top government posts – is known to The Sunday Times. He strongly denies the claims. However, Edmonds said: ‘He was aiding foreign operatives against U.S. interests by passing them highly classified information, not only from the State Department but also from the Pentagon, in exchange for money, position and political objectives.’
"She claims that the FBI was also gathering evidence against senior Pentagon officials – including household names – who were aiding foreign agents. ‘If you made public all the information that the FBI have on this case, you will see very high-level people going through criminal trials,’ she said."
Edmonds brought all this to the attention of lawmakers, as well as the American media, and several news organizations filed reports – until a federal judge issued an unprecedented gag order. Edmonds’ story was deemed too hot to handle: if the public were allowed to know what she knows, according to our government, America’s national security would be severely impaired. Yet now she is speaking out, and what she has to say is unsettling, to say the least.
Edmonds has named at least one of the officials: he is Marc Grossman, a former U.S. ambassador to Turkey, assistant secretary of state for European affairs under the Clinton administration and undersecretary of state for political affairs from 2001-2005. Grossman is now vice chairman of The Cohen Group, a consulting firm founded by Bill Clinton’s defense secretary, William S. Cohen.
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.
As a translator for the FBI, Edmonds had the task of translating many hours of intercepted phone conversations between Turkish officials and Pakistanis, Israelis, and Americans who were targets of the FBI’s counterintelligence unit. Thousands of hours of intercepted calls revealed a network of moles placed in various military installations and academic venues dealing with nuclear technology. Edmonds gives us the details, via the Times:
"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.
"They were helped, she says, by the high-ranking State Department official [Marc Grossman] who provided some of their moles – mainly Ph.D. students – with security clearance to work in sensitive nuclear research facilities. These included the Los Alamos nuclear laboratory in New Mexico, which is responsible for the security of the U.S. nuclear deterrent."
And "while the FBI was investigating," says Edmonds, "several arms of the government were shielding what was going on." An entire wing of the national security bureaucracy, associated with the neoconservatives, has long profited from representing Turkish interests in Washington: this group includes not only Grossman, but also Paul Wolfowitz, chief intellectual architect of the Iraq war and ex-World Bank president; former deputy defense secretary for policy Douglas J. Feith; Feith’s successor, Eric Edelman; and Richard Perle, the notorious uber-neocon whose unique ability to mix profiteering and warmongering forced him to resign his official capacity as a key administration adviser.
Edmonds draws a picture of a three-sided alliance consisting of Turkish, Pakistani, and Israeli agents who coordinated efforts to milk U.S. nuclear secrets and technology, funneling the intelligence stream to the black market nuclear network set up by the Pakistani scientist A.Q. Khan. The multi-millionaire Pakistani nuclear scientist then turned around and sold his nuclear assets to North Korea, Libya, and Iran.
This was no "rogue" operation, but a covert action executed by Gen. Mahmoud Ahmad, the chief of Pakistan’s intelligence service, the ISI, at the time. The Turks were used as intermediaries because direct ISI intervention would have roused immediate suspicion. Large amounts of cash were dropped off at the offices of Turkish-American lobbying groups, such as the American Turkish Council in Washington, which was reportedly picked up by at least one top U.S. official.
This Pakistani-Turkish-Israeli Axis of Espionage, operating through their respective embassies, systematically combed Washington officialdom for potential moles, compiling lists that, according to Edmonds and the Times, “contained all their ‘hooking points,’ which could be financial or sexual pressure points, their exact job in the Pentagon and what stuff they had access to.” Nice work, there.
This sounds a lot like the setup the handlers of convicted spy Larry Franklin worked with to glean information from the rabidly pro-Israel Franklin and pass it off to Israeli embassy officials, including former Israeli ambassador Danny Ayalon; Naor Gilon, the former political officer at the embassy; and Rafi Barak, the former deputy chief of mission. And there is indeed a connection to the Franklin case, according to the Times,
"One of the Pentagon figures under investigation was Lawrence Franklin, a former Pentagon analyst, who was jailed in 2006 for passing U.S. defense information to lobbyists and sharing classified information with an Israeli diplomat. ‘He was one of the top people providing information and packages during 2000 and 2001,’ [Edmonds] said."
Franklin delivered his "packages" to AIPAC officials Steve Rosen and Keith Weissman and their Israeli handlers for ideological reasons, but others, such as Grossman – according to Edmonds – did it for money. Grossman angrily denies the charge. In any case, apparently large cash transactions were recorded on the tapes Edmonds translated, in which U.S. officials were heard selling the nation’s nuclear secrets. As the Times relates:
"Well-known U.S. officials were then bribed by foreign agents to steal U.S. nuclear secrets. One such incident from 2000 involves an agent overheard on a wiretap discussing ‘nuclear information that had been stolen from an air force base in Alabama,’ in which the agent allegedly is heard saying: ‘We have a package and we’re going to sell it for $250,000.’"
A vast criminal enterprise supported by at least three foreign intelligence agencies acting in concert with top U.S. officials, including some "household names" – if true, it’s the story of the decade. Yet that isn’t all. The really scary aspect of this labyrinthine network of foreign agents, and their American dupes and collaborators, is its connections to terrorist organizations, specifically al-Qaeda.
To begin with, Gen. Ahmad is suspected of having wired a large amount of money into Mohammed Atta’s Dubai bank account shortly before the 9/11 terrorist attacks. More ominously, the Times reports: "Following 9/11, a number of the foreign operatives were taken in for questioning by the FBI on suspicion that they knew about or somehow aided the attacks."
Pakistani and/or Turkish operatives arrested or held for questioning in the wake of the 9/11 attacks? Well, that’s the first I’ve heard of it. However, the U.S. authorities did round up a large number of Israelis, including these guys, and held them for several months before extraditing them back to their home country.
Even more alarming is the reason Edmonds approached the Times with the story, "after reading about an al-Qaeda terrorist who had revealed his role in training some of the 9/11 hijackers while he was in Turkey." That’s a reference to this Nov. 2 story in the Times, which details the career of a top al-Qaeda kingpin, 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.
Now that‘s curious: a Muslim fundamentalist training camp in a country run by a fanatically secular military that would normally not tolerate such activities. As the Times puts it: "Turkish intelligence were aware of unusual militant Islamic activity in the Yalova mountains, where Sakka had set up his camps. But they posed no threat to Turkey at the time."
Not a threat to Turkey, eh? All too true: the terrorists’ target was the U.S. The al-Qaeda recruits trained by Sakka were specifically chosen by the top leadership of al-Qaeda – i.e., bin Laden – to carry out the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. That they were nurtured and steeled for their mission under the noses of our NATO allies in Ankara seems bizarre – until one begins to take Sibel Edmonds seriously. Then the whole horrifying picture starts to fall into place.
The darkest secrets of 9/11 are buried at the end of the trail laid out in Edmonds’ testimony. As Luke Ryland, the world’s foremost expert on the Edmonds case, writes:
"The Times article then notes something that I reported 18 months ago. Immediately after 911, the FBI arrested a bunch of people suspected of being involved with the attacks – including four associates of key targets of FBI’s counterintelligence operations. Sibel heard the targets tell Marc Grossman: ‘We need to get them out of the U.S. because we can’t afford for them to spill the beans.’ Grossman duly facilitated their release from jail and the suspects immediately left the country without further investigation or interrogation.
"Let me repeat that for emphasis: The #3 guy at the State Dept. facilitated the immediate release of 911 suspects at the request of targets of the FBI’s investigation."
Corruption and a massive cover-up organized at the highest levels of government – America’s nuclear secrets and technology looted on a massive scale, and sold to our enemies via a network set up by our alleged foreign "friends," while the threat of nuclear terrorism hangs over our country like a thick fog of fear, and warmongering politicians scare us into going along with the program – if even half of what Edmonds alleges turns out to be true, then we are all in some very big trouble.
In light of the Edmonds revelations, we have to reconsider the implications of the question Charles Gibson opened with during the ABC Democratic debate:
"The day after a nuclear weapon goes off in an American city, what would we wish we had done to prevent it and what will we actually do on the day after?"
Perhaps congressman Henry Waxman, who solemnly pledged to launch a public investigation into the allegations made by Edmonds, will wish he had kept his promise. Maybe even the national news media, which has been offered this story repeatedly, by Ms. Edmonds and her supporters, will wish they had covered it.
Fortunately, we don’t need the "mainstream" media to get the truth out to the American people. With the new technology of the computer age, we can do an end run around the media. This YouTube video is shocking:



As Edmonds says, "we have the facts, we have the documents, we have the witnesses. Put out the tapes, put out the documents, put out the intercepts – put out the truth."
If a nuke ever goes off in an American city, it will probably have been stolen from our own arsenal – once the American people wake up to that scary fact, the rest will follow automatically.
