A True Patriot - Cynthia McKinney Exposes Israeli Espionage In U.S.

Framing Muslims And Locking Up Their Money

I would like to take a moment to follow the trail of another trial involving the sale or give-away of U.S. national security secrets to a foreign government; the name of that government is never mentioned; and the litigation never pierces the American psyche due to an effective news blackout. News of this is nowhere to be found while we know in detail the mental state of Brittany Spears.

Consider for just a moment what is happening, though unpublicized, today. In case number one, a Pentagon man is found with 83 top secret documents at his home, some of them having been passed to American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) who then passed them to Israel - known in the newspapers as Country A. The other case involves the outing of a CIA agent who was tracking nuclear proliferation in the Middle East. This is the case of Ambassador Joseph Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame, that saw the chief of staff of the Vice President of the United States [I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby] sentenced to prison, only to be later pardoned by the President!

Interestingly, when George Bush came to the White House, he brought with him Richard Perle, Douglas Feith, and others. Perle would soon leave because it was learned that he tried to use his position as head of the Defense Policy Board to make money off the War on Terror. Feith, as head of the Office of Special Plans, presided over the most ignominious period in the history of the Pentagon, with it producing faked intelligence, stovepiping it to the White House, and then to the American people and the U.S. Congress, sending our young men and women into war in Iraq. Feith left the Pentagon as soon as the investigation into Larry Franklin, his subordinate in his Office, started to get hot. Larry Franklin is now in jail.

When Franklin met with two AIPAC operatives, Steve Rosen and Keith Weissman, what he didn't know was that every word was being recorded. Franklin, Rosen, and Weissman formed a neat circle. Elliot Abrams at the National Security Council, Dov Zakheim, Comptroller at the Pentagon, Doug Feith number three at the Pentagon in its Office of Special Plans, and Paul Wolfowitz, number two at the Pentagon, closed that circle.

Ex-CIA agent Phil Giraldi in "Kill the Messenger" confirms that both Perle and Feith were investigated by the FBI for passing secret information to Israel. He continues, "In no cases, were any of them convicted. The prosecutions were dropped ... in my opinion because of political pressure not to get into this kind of case that involves Israel and espionage." Wolfowitz was under investigation for passing U.S. secrets to Israel through AIPAC.

Spying inside the United States is not new.

In 2001, the FBI discovered new, "massive" Israeli spying operations in the East Coast, including New York and New Jersey," and they began watching Naor Gilon (at the Israeli Embassy), who eventually led them to Franklin.

In 1970 while working for a U.S. Senator, Richard Perle was caught by the FBI giving classified information to Israel.

In 1985, the New York Times reports that the FBI is aware of at least a dozen incidents in which classified information is transferred to Israel.

In 1987, the Wall Street Journal headlined that Israel's role in the Iran-Contra scandal would not be investigated by Congress.

In 1993, the Anti-Defamation League is caught operating a massive spying operation on critics of Israel, Arab-Americans, the San Francisco Labor Council, ILWU Local 10, Oakland Educational Association, NAACP, Irish Northern Aid, International Indian Treaty Council, the Asian Law Caucus and the San Francisco police. Data collected was sent to Israel and in some cases to South Africa. Pressure from certain organizations forces the city to drop the criminal case, but the ADL settles a civil lawsuit for an undisclosed sum of cash.

General Karen Kwiatkowski, who quit the Pentagon, wrote that during her time there, Doug Feith gave the Israeli military access to the Pentagon without signing in, in violation of security policy.

And finally, Sibel Edmonds, who has a gag order on her, but she courageously is now speaking, says that Patrick Fitzgerald will find more than just a few guys spying for Israel if he conducts a real investigation. Sibel says that it's basically the same people over and over again and the activities include multi-billion dollar black-market nuclear sales to terrorists and unsavory regimes. She says that the beauty of the larger case is that you can start from any angle. If you start from the AIPAC angle, you wind up at the same people. If you start from the Valerie Plame case, you end up with the same people. The FBI probe of Pentagon intelligence activities had as its target Doug Feith's Office of Special Plans.

Sibel concludes that the investigations were shut down in 2000 and in 2001 "because they ended up going to higher levels and involving maybe way too many people, US persons. I'm talking about individuals who are breaking the law, misusing the trust and abusing their power, and in some cases I would even say engaging in treason."
