Plamegate update: Clarice Feldman says Sibel Edmonds misunderstood

Share

Ernie Souchak, Editor-in-Chief

American Thinker contributor Clarice Feldman came up with a stunning justification for her hit piece on Sibel Edmonds' credibility.

After she was criticized for failing to provide any facts or references to support her public declaration that FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds is not credible, Feldman finally offered this journalistic gem:

"p to p has no secret info to my knowledge. As I recall the investigation of Sibel's charges was mixed--She was found credible respecting claims of the operation of the FBI's Arabic translation group. Not so with her assertions that a variety of high govt officials were engaged in treasonous stuff with Turkey. As to those things I thing she misunderstood what she had overheard"

So, according to Clarice Feldman, the woman who testified before the 911 Commission and had state secrets privilege invoked on her twice, simply "misunderstood what she overheard" on the FBI wiretap tapes.

Wow, thanks for clearing that up for us, Clarice.

Now if you don't mind, just tell us the correct translation of what is on the FBI wiretap tapes that Edmonds "misunderstood".

And please show us where DoJ Inspector General Glenn Fine says Edmonds is not credible as it pertains to "her assertions that a variety of high govt officials were engaged in treasonous stuff with Turkey" in his unclassified report.

Because we can't find that in the report. Or anywhere else for that matter.

Unless of course Clarice received a copy of the classified report. Well, did you Clarice?

But Feldman is right about one thing: "Plamegate" was a hoax. However, she is not telling the truth about the who, what, why, when, and where of the hoax. Or the more accurate description - disinformation campaign.

And now Feldman is continuing the disinformation campaign by quoting from a new book by John Rizzo, a CIA attorney and self described friend of Patrick Fitzgerald.

Really?

Will get back to you on that one......more to come...

American Thinker’s dishonest attempt to discredit a hero

Share

Ernie Souchak, Editor-in Chief

Clarice Feldman and the American Thinker's dishonest attempt to discredit a true American hero by the name of Sibel Edmonds exposes their hidden agenda.

Feldman's coverage of "Plamegate" coupled with another story IP2P is currently working on involving the American Thinker  will not only raise very serious questions about American Thinker's credibility in the minds of their readers. It will also prove to be very upsetting to many of the fine writers who contribute to the American Thinker. And who deserve better.

Let's start with a few things you may or may not know about Clarice Feldman that will help paint a picture of what is clearly her agenda.

You may know that Clarice Feldman was a DC lawyer. However, did you know that Clarice Feldman's career as an attorney was spent employed by the federal government at the National Labor Relations Review Board (NLRB)?

Did you know that Feldman was a Washington insider who was nominated to be on the federal bench three separate times?

And did you know that Feldman's husband is a Washington insider as well?

Howard J. Feldman - Van Ness Feldman LLP

Keep these facts in mind as you read the following communication between American Thinker editor Thomas Lifson and one of the contributors to his website.

Subject: American Thinker's dishonest attempt to discredit

Thomas,

I wish to bring to your attention egregious misrepresentations and falsehoods written by Clarice Feldman and published in the American Thinker, that by all indications appear to have been intentional.

I recently asked you the following: What was the purpose of the Clarice Feldman article titled Spy vs Spy? To which you replied "I am not a mind reader". OK Thomas, I believe you when you say you are not a mind reader. However, you are the editor of American Thinker and you should have a clear understanding of what you publish.

So, I am going to take this opportunity to explain to you what you allowed to be published under your watch. Feldman's article Spy vs Spy was the most transparently feeble underhanded cowardly dishonest attempt to discredit a credible bonafide whistleblower that I have ever seen.

As Feldman is fully aware, the media did not have "well-supported questions about Edmonds' credibility" as she stated. In fact the opposite was true. The media that did report on Edmonds touted her as being completely credible. And members of congress including the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee Sen. Chuck Grassley (R) stepped up and went on programs such as CBS 60 minutes to say so.

Not to mention the fact that Sibel Edmonds the most gaged women in America was credible enough to be called to testify in front of the 911 commission.

Furthermore, Feldman's attempt to discredit Edmonds with the tactic of guilt by association using an indirect connection to as Feldman puts it "the oddly-named Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPs)", was disgraceful.

And is further conformation that Clarice Feldman was motivated by an agenda and not a desire to report the truth.

Thomas, you have been provided documents and sworn testimony of Sibel Edmonds that as you know has not been challenged by anyone in the media or the federal government, including the Department of Justice and the FBI.

With that evidence in hand, it is time for the American Thinker to do what is right, and correct a wrong. Print a retraction of the hit piece Clarice Feldman and the American Thinker did on Sibel Edmonds and her credibility (attached below) along with a long overdue apology to Sibel Edmonds, who is a true American hero that deserves our thanks and admiration.

January 31, 2008 Spy vs Spy
Clarice Feldman

The UK Sunday Times has run a series of articles detailing sensational charges by Sibel Edmonds, a short term translator for the FBI who claims that Marc Grossman, a key prosecution figure in the Scooter Libby case, was involved in espionage against the U.S., divulging nuclear secrets and warning people that Plame's cover Brewster-Jennings was a CIA front.

Annie Jacobsen of Pajamas Media asks why no major US outlet has covered this, suggesting fear of being involved in charges of divulging state secrets.

My own view is that the media have well-supported questions about Edmonds' credibility. Interestingly, there is a whistleblowers operation supporting her that has some overlapping membership with the oddly-named Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPs) which insisted the government's case against Libby was solid, that Plame's career was destroyed when she was "outed" and that she was involved at the time in very important, top secret matters.

Page Printed from: http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2008/01/spy_vs_spy.html

Feldman knows that if Edmonds was lying she would have faced criminal prosecution.

So, ask yourself the following:

Why would Feldman, who is the lead cheerleader for the Bush family, try to discredit the one person Washington wants to silence, Sibel Edmonds?

Why would Clarice Feldman, a DC insider who was nominated to be a federal judge, ignore all the documented facts and evidence that prove Valerie Plame's identity as a CIA operative was exposed in 2001?

And why would Feldman choose to believe Dick Armitage's ridiculous lie that he did so in 2003, over Sibel Edmonds' sworn testimony?

And why would Thomas Lifson' the founder and editor of American Thinker, participate in this lie?

Could it be because of the fact that Edmonds telling the truth exposes that Dick Armitage was not part of a conspiracy against the White House as Feldman and the American Thinker want you to believe, but rather part of a disinformation campaign/cover-up orchestrated by the White House?

And the fact that if that were exposed, the Bush family and a whole bunch of Washington insiders friendly to Feldman and the American Thinker would have a lot of explaining to do?

And most likely, time to do as well! As in prison time.

Yep, not only could it be. It is.

Much more to follow.....

Just wait until you hear who was quoted saying "it is bigger than Watergate" when talking about the "Plamegate cover-up". And who they are collaborating with now!

CNS News: It’s about Patrick Fitzgerald

Share

Ernie Souchak, Editor-in-Chief

CNS News understands that the real story in the Blagojevich saga is not Rod Blagojevich, it's former U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald.

Rod Blagojevich is just another crooked politician who under normal circumstances in Illinois would never have seen the inside of a courtroom, much less a jail cell.

However, a distraction was needed to cover up crimes the Bush administration was committing, and to clear the path for Barack Hussein Obama to lead the next puppet administration.

You heard right, Fitzgerald was covering up crimes for both Bush and Obama.

Since Fitzgerald and his partners in crime (including the media) were successful, it is now time to let Blagojevich out of jail before he snitches on his fellow criminal government pals.

CNS News recognizes that although Blagojevich is guilty and belongs in jail, in the big picture Blago is just a flea on an elephant's ass.

If you really want to know who the big time criminals are, focus on Patrick Fitzgerald and what he has done. He will lead you right to them. Don't be distracted again!

High honors to Barbara Hollingsworth at CNS News, very astute.

Valerie Plame lied and people died

Share

Ernie Souchak, Editor-in-Chief

Valerie Plame lied about her cover as a covert CIA operative at front company Brewster Jennings & Associates being blown in 2003 due to an article written by Bob Novak.

And as a result, the U.S. invaded Iraq and people died!

You see, as we now know from documents and sworn testimony of FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds, the cover of Plame's CIA front company Brewster Jennings & Associates was blown in the summer of 2001 by Undersecretary of State Marc Grossman.

Grossman exposed Plame as CIA long before the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003 or Plame's husband Ambassador Joe Wilson's infamous trip to Niger in 2002.

In fact, Plame's CIA front company was exposed before the collapse of World Trade Center building 7 (the CIA's second largest complex) on September 11, 2001.

Thanks to Sibel Edmonds we now know that Valerie Plame, Lewis "Scooter" Libby and the White House were all fully aware of the fact that Brewster Jennings & Associates was exposed and shut down in 2001, and that Grossman was selling nuclear secrets at that time.

So, ask yourself this.

If in 2001, Valerie Plame or Joe Wilson would have told the truth about the fact that Marc Grossman (the third highest ranking official at the State Department) exposed Plame as a CIA operative to officials in Turkey and Pakistan, and was selling nuclear secrets on the black- market, would we still have invaded Iraq?

Of course not!

Remember, in 2001 Valerie Plame was purportedly in the CIA's counter-proliferation division. Plame's job was to catch people who were selling nuclear secrets on the black-market. People like Grossman!

And, "Special Counsel" Patrick Fitzgerald was head of special task force unit 49 in 2001, nicknamed the bin Laden unit. Unit 49 was a antiterrorism task force that operated out of the U.S. Attorney's Office Southern Dist. New York. (Manhattan)

Valerie, isn't Pakistan where the A.Q. Kahn network operated out of?

And Patrick, isn't Pakistan where Osama bin Laden operated out of?

Why is it that Valerie Plame and her husband Joe Wilson now refuse to answer any questions about a subject that in the past you could not get them to shut up about?

Why is it that Valerie Plame and Joe Wilson refuse to answer any questions about their friendship with Marc Grossman, the man who exposed Brewster Jennings and Valerie as CIA?

Answer: Plame and Bush lied - people died!

As for former U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, there is some blockbuster news coming very soon.

“Plamegate” was a CIA/State Dept. disinformation campaign

Share

Ernie Souchak, Editor-in-Chief

"Plamegate" was a CIA/State Dept. disinformation campaign designed to distract Americans from Acts of Treason that had been, and were being committed.

And who better to carry out such a plan than Mr. Disinformation himself, Dick Armitage?

You see, the CIA, State Department, Department of Defense, Department of Justice, FBI, DoJ Office of Inspector General and the White House all knew by Feburary, 2002 that in the summer of 2001 Undersecretary of State Marc Grossman was caught on a FBI wiretap exposing Valerie Plame and Brewster Jennings as CIA to Turkish nationals.

So, with that being a documented fact, how could Valerie Plame possibly think she was a covert agent attached to the CIA front operation known as Brewster Jennings & Associates in 2003?

Answer: she couldn't. It's a lie. Or, as Plame would say, her tradecraft allows her to call it disinformation.

And did anyone seriously believe the bullshit story Mr. Disinformation Dick Armitage told?

Answer: of course not. Armitage planted the story with the unwitting Robert Novak to kick off the Plamegate disinformation campaign.

Oh, we forgot to mention that not only was Grossman captured on tape exposing Brewster Jennings & Associates as a CIA front, he (Grossman) was also caught on tape selling America's nuclear secrets on the black-market.

Wasn't it Valerie Plame's job at the CIA to catch people that do things like that? You know, the bad guys dealing in nuclear proliferation?

The problem for Dick Armitage, Valerie Plame, Patrick Fitzgerald, James Comey, Judith Miller and a plethora of others connected to the "Plamegate cover-up" is that the plan relied on silencing FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds.

And as they learned the hard way, that was something that could only be accomplished temporarily.

As this unfolds you will find that nothing is as it seems, and that we really are dealing with a one party system in Washington, DC.

Remember, "the truth will set you free". And, there is no expiration date on the truth.

Valerie Plame lied to Congress and Chairman Henry Waxman knew it

Share

Ernie Souchak, Editor-in-Chief

On March 16, 2007 while testifying to the Congressional Oversight Committee, Valerie Plame lied under oath. And Chairman Henry Waxman was fully aware of the act of perjury being committed by Plame.

Long before Congressman Waxman heard sworn testimony from Valerie Plame at a House Oversight Committee hearing, Congressman Waxman was briefed by former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds.

In addition to being briefed by Edmonds.

Congressman Waxman was provided Inspector General Glenn Fine's classified report that contained the fact that Valerie Plame's identity as a CIA operative was exposed in 2001 when Undersecretary of State Marc Grossman was secretly recorded warning Turkish nationals to stay away from Brewster Jennings & Associates because it was a CIA front.

And as Chairman Waxman was well aware, Brewster Jennings & Associates was the CIA front that Plame claims gave her covert status.

Like many in our government, Congressman Waxman thought Edmonds (the most gagged woman in the U.S.A.) would never be heard.

You thought wrong Henry. Oops!

Now, armed with the knowledge that Congressman Waxman was fully aware that Valerie Plame was lying to the oversight committee. And the fact that we also know "Special Counsel" Patrick Fitzgerald's investigation was a sham, and United States v I. Lewis Libby was a show trial.

With this in mind take another look at the despicable conduct of Chairman Waxman as he lies to all of America, and tries (but fails) to discredit an honest witness.

Congressman Henry Waxman, time for you to join Sen. Chuck Grassley up on stage with your pants down.

Plamegate cover-up: Judith Miller is reaching out to Scooter Libby for help

Share

Ernie Souchak, Editor-in-Chief

IP2P recently reported Judith Miller's confession that she knew former Deputy Secretary of State Dick Armitage was not the person who really exposed Valerie Plame as a CIA operative.

What we did not report at that time was that Judith Miller contacted Lewis "Scooter" Libby immediately after making that confession in the hope that Scooter could intervene, and convince us not to pursue this explosive story.

Clearly Scooter did not convince us.

However, we did find it interesting that the woman (Miller) who purportedly spent 80 days in jail before reaching out to Scooter for help during the Plame investigation reached out to Scooter for help within hours of a discussion about Dick Armitage.

Let's examine a possible reason for this interesting phenomena.

It's a known fact that FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds testified under oath that FBI wiretap recordings captured Undersecretary of State Marc Grossman exposing Brewster Jennings & Associates and Plame as CIA in 2001 to individuals connected to the American-Turkish Council.

What's not well known is this:

According to Edmonds, while he was at the State Department Grossman would brag:

We just fax to our people at the New York Times. They print it under their names."

Wow! Armitage's friends at the American-Turkish Council must have liked hearing that.

Now, ask yourself this:

Why did Miller think Scooter could or would help her with her current predicament?

How did Miller know Dick Armitage did not expose Valerie Plame as CIA before Sibel Edmonds made it public that Marc Grossman did?

Dick Armitage and Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz

Judith,

Were you receiving stories via fax from Dick Armitage and his friends while you were employed at the New York Times?

Is Dick Armitage the mystery editor you mentioned that would not run your Plame story in the New York Times (a story Armitage clearly intended for Robert Novak to publish)?

Much more to follow..... until then, keep in mind the infamous words of Armitage friend and cohort William Casey.

Miller was contacted: however, she refused to comment.

Cover-up Update: Sen. Chuck Grassley’s office delivers a “Fast and Furious” bombshell

Share

Hugo Floriani, Investigative Reporter

Sen. Chuck Grassley and his staff refuse to answer any questions or give a statement to the media regarding the documented fact that the senator was actively involved in what is now being called the "Plamegate cover-up".

However, in a very odd conversation with Grassley staff members Tristan Leavitt and James Donahue, in which they changed the subject from "Plamegate cover-up" to the gun walking scandal "Fast and Furious" and its Chicago connections, Leavitt dropped this bombshell:

Sen. Grassley's investigation into "Fast and Furious" is in the civil courts, in an attempt to get information.

So, an investigation into the deaths of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, Immigration and Customs agent Jaime Zapata, and an untold number of Mexican citizens is now in civil court. Really?

In other words, Sen. Grassley's office has confirmed what we suspected:

Congressman Darrell Issa was only putting on a show for us in the Congressional Oversight Committee hearings. And, that he always intended to bury this scandal.

Here are our words for Sen. Grassley and Congressman Issa:

Brian Terry, Jaime Zapata and their families deserve better.

And, We the People are going to insist they get better.

Here are the facts:

Sen. Grassley was ranking member on the Senate Judiciary Committee in 2002 when FBI translator Sibel Edmonds informed him that Undersecretary of State Marc Grossman was caught on a federal wiretap exposing Brewster Jennings & Associates as a CIA front to the Turks.

FBI Director Robert Mueller and Senator Chuck Grassley

In 2003 Sen. Grassley actively engaged in a cover-up by participating in the appointment of U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald as "Special Counsel" to investigate who exposed Brewster Jennings and Valerie Plame as CIA.

Sen. Grassley's involvement in this cover-up was shielded from the public by the fact that the U.S. Government gagged FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds by invoking States Secrets Privilege on her.

But on August 8,2009 Sibel Edmonds testifies under oath that Marc Grossman exposed Brewster Jennings & Associates as a CIA front in 2001.

And, Edmonds also testified that Inspector General Glenn A. Fine, Sen. Chuck Grassley and Sen. Patrick Leahy were officially informed of Grossman's crimes in 2002.

That's when Sen. Chuck Grassley and many others in government got caught with their pants down.

Secret is out!

Ernie Souchak, Editor-in-Chief

Clarice Feldman is a writer for the American Thinker who has taken the position that Dick Armitage is a liar, except when his lies fit her agenda. Then you can believe him over all others.

Feldman's agenda: Keep Americans from learning that "Plamegate" is a cover-up, and that her friends in Washington, DC were not victims. They were participants.

Remember we said "Now that the lie is out in the open, individuals involved in the "Plamegate cover-up" are having difficulty answering the simplest of questions."

That's because once Armitage's lies are fully exposed to the public, the "Plamegate cover-up" comes crashing down, exposing the granddaddy of all scandals. And, that will explain a plethora of scandals. Including current ones!

August 30, 2006 - What President Bush Should Do about Plamegate by Clarice Feldman

http://www.americanthinker.com/2006/08/what_president_bush_should_do.html

You state your belief that Dick Armitage, Colin Powell, John Ashcroft and James Comey were co-conspirators against President George W Bush. The conspiracy you accuse them of orchestrating was commonly known as "Plamegate"

Fast forward to today.

Judith Miller exposed “Plamegate” as a cover-up

http://illinoispaytoplay.com/2013/11/07/judith-miller-exposed-plamegate-as-a-cover-up/

FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds has since testified under oath that Valerie Plame's CIA front Brewster Jennings & Associates was exposed in 2001 by Undersecretary of State Marc Grossman, who coincidently reported directly to Deputy Secretary of State Dick Armitage.

And, Judith Miller is now on record stating that she knew Dick Armitage was not who exposed Valerie Plame as CIA, and that a lot of people knew that.

Clarice, so we are clear on this.

Now that you have full knowledge of Miller's confession, and Edmonds testimony.

You're telling me that you still believe Dick Armitage, a man you accused of conspiring against The President of the United States, was telling the truth when he confessed (in 2006) that he exposed Valerie Plame in 2003.

And, you believe Judith Miller and FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds are both lying when they say Armitage did not expose Valerie Plame.

However, you refuse to offer a reason for this peculiar belief.

Is there anything else you would like to say?

Or, are we clear on this?

(name redacted)

What Feldman refuses to tell her readers is, that there were hoards of people in Washington, DC who knew that Marc Grossman exposed Brewster Jennings & Associates in 2001.

Including: FBI Director Robert Mueller, Dept. of Justice Inspector General Glenn A. Fine, Senator Chuck Grassley and Senator Patrick Leahy.

Clarice Feldman would like you to believe that Dick Armitage, Colin Powell, John Ashcroft and James Comey conspired against President George W. Bush while Mueller, Fine, Grassley, Leahy and others in positions of power just watched.

Really? Wouldn't that make them all co-conspirators?

Clarice, when a conspiracy involves this many people in Washington, the conspiracy is not against anyone in Washington, it's against We the People

Clarice Feldman is right about one thing--Dick Armitage is a liar!

Thanks to Sibel Edmonds, that is a well documented fact.

Much more to follow......
