Antiwar's Raimondo on Edmonds' Story

Nukes, Spooks, and the Specter of 9/11
We're in big trouble if even half of what Sibel Edmonds says is true…

By Justin Raimondo, January 7, 2008

...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...

...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...

Beware of the Gatekeepers.

A good gatekeeper is smart.Intellectually above average.They baffle/intrigue and bullshit with intellect. like Nome Chumpsky you know the guy eh?

They always work for the other side whilst in a sneaky manner pretend to be on yours.They are always easily spotted if you use your Golden Compass!

9-11 Cover-Up, Treason and The Bomb

Many 9/11 truth haters hide behind behind Edmonds

Let's not forget that Raimondo, like a number of other Edmonds defenders, remains a determined enemy of 9/11 truth. Indeed, Raimondo has probably done more than anyone in libertarian circles to suppress discussion about 9/11 and insult those seeking the truth, while steadfastly refusing to address specific points.

He even kills any the Paul Craig Roberts columns -- which his website,, pays rights for anyway -- that even obliquely question the official account of 9/11. No 9/11 truth comments are ever permitted on Indeed, no reference to the fact that there's even a 9/11 truth controversy is permitted there. Email queries about 9/11 are never answered.

Let's not give readers here the impression that somehow Raimondo is on our side.

+1 These proven gatekeepers

+1 These proven gatekeepers all of a sudden talking about a possibly 9-11 related
(Osama did 9-11, now he has nukes too) info from Edmonds sounds like disinformation to me.
Let's not fall for this.

WTC 9-11-2001 was a Neocon-Zionist conspiracy-
The WTC was destroyed by controlled demo-

This is all a Red Herring

Edmonds is reinforcing a limited hangout,i.e. that Al Qaeda is real, did the attacks of 9/11 and the U.S. is conspiring with them.

Reality: 9/11 was a pure U.S. military operation.

The nuke spiel is also bogus. Raytheon's satellites can detect mintue traces of enriched uranium and it's movement. No false flags can occur without the real perps knowing.
Israel Pakistan and Turkey are puppets and have nothing to do with the real power, PRIVATE MILITARY CONTRACTORS.

It was a joint effort by several different elites

Are you saying military contractors just went off and pulled off 9/11?

If so, that would show little understanding of how politics and government work. To pull off an operation as enormous as 9/11 and get the MSM consistently to hold to a patently silly line about the whole thing required a considerable coalition effort. A hotly motivated element came up with the plan, and then painstakingly recruited and assembled representatives of various interests who were needed to realize that plan.

Of course military contractors were involved. (And the fact that some of those same corporations also own major media has helped keep the MSM in line.) But they didn't just do it by themselves, or were likely to have come up with the original plan themselves. Other interests -- U.S. and Israeli "intelligence" (covert ops) agencies, power-mad politicos, certain well-connected oil interests, wealthy investors in federal bonds, etc. -- joined together to make 9/11 happen and keep it misinterpreted by the bulk of humanity.

While I'm on this topic: Likewise, bringing out the truth about 9/11 and vanquishing its true perpetrators will take a coalition effort. It will take liberals and conservatives, Marxists and rightists, libertarians and anarchists, working together to assemble and disseminate that truth. The perpetrators are hoping that we will be divided into too many uncooperative factions to ever represent the kind of force needed to bring the truth to the masses.

Evidence points to Israel

Yes, the military industrial complex was certainly in on 9/11. The war games, stand down and other actions show their involvement. But who ran the operation? Who planned it? Most of the key people involved in orchestrating and covering-up the attacks were dual Israeli citizens.

I believe it was an Israeli black-ops with their operatives having key positions in the government
and military. Then after the operation, they use their control of the media to suppress any "conspiracy theories". But not worry, WE KNOW WHO DID IT. Just like the USS Liberty
was attacked by Israel in one of their many FALSE FLAGS.
