Ex-FBI Translator Claims Spying at DoD
October 21, 2009
Military.com|by Bryant Jordan

After seven years of forced silence, a government whistleblower is opening up on what she learned while working as a Turkish translator for the FBI in the wake of 9/11.

In sworn testimony to attorneys on Aug. 8, Sibel Edmonds described a Pentagon where key personnel helped pass defense secrets to foreign agents or provided them names of knowledgeable officials who were vulnerable to blackmail or co-option.

And firmly rooted in this espionage program in the 1990s, according to Edmonds’ deposition, were two men who, with the election of George W. Bush as president in 2000, found themselves in the Pentagon: Douglas Feith, who would head the Office of Special Plans, and Richard Perle, who would become chairman of the Defense Advisory Board.

Douglas Feith Tells 60 Minutes Attack On Iraq Was Anticipatory Self-Defense; Not 9/11 Retaliation

Feith says there have been lots of errors in judgment, but not by him. He is generous in his criticism of Secretary of State Colin Powell, CIA Director George Tenet and General Tommy Franks. And they have returned the favor, plus interest.

anyone recognize these people, besides Feith and PerleHarbor?

Israel's "Clean Break" + PNAC's "Rebuilding America's Defenses" = 9/11?

I'm sure most here are familiar with PNAC's "Rebuilding America's Defenses (RAD)" paper, which states "...the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event — like a new Pearl Harbor." However, we never hear much about an Israeli policy paper that preceded PNAC's RAD plan by four years entitled "A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm".

The excerpt from the article below explains how Israel's "Clean Break" policy paper and PNAC's "RAD" plan are intimately related:

ONCE A COMPANY MAN, ALWAYS A COMPANY MAN, September 6, 2006

[SNIP]

The $64,000.00 question of “Who done it?“ is found in the brainchild of Richard Perle and Benjamin Netanyahu…”A Clean Break”, the founding document of PNAC.

A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm

Commonly referred to as the "Clean Break" report, was prepared in 1996 by a study group led by Richard Perle. The other participants were James Colbert, Charles Fairbanks, Jr, Douglas Feith, Robert Loewenberg, Jonathan Torop, David Wurmser and Meyrav Wurmser
