This is a follow up to yesterday’s article Stolen Nuclear Bomb Plans Sold On Black Market. Today, scientist, A.Q. Khan, denied reports coming out of Washington that stated he sold stolen nuclear warhead blueprints to factions in the Middle East.
While I think he knows more than he is saying, one would be able to rule out all other culprits, save for the fact that high ranking U.S. government officials in Washington, also illegally sold nuclear bomb plans to parties in the Middle East, such as Turkey.
There were closed hearings in Congress regarding it with many credible newspapers lambasting FBI headquarters for trying to cover it up and not prosecuting the offenders. Not to mention, Robert Mueller’s predecessor at the FBI, the now incarcerated, Robert Hansen, was spying for Russia for 20 years.
Sidebar: FBI headquarters is not good at covering things up. FBI headquarters is like the CIA’s idiot cousin that keeps dropping the ball when you throw it to him (hence 9/11 and 7/7 happening). That’s why the public always finds out the FBI’s business, sometimes, without even trying (*looking at the EFF and the ACLU*).
You know, like trying to look all official in putting out redacted documents when there is software on the market than can un-redact it. Stuff like that (LOL). Or the head of the FBI, Robert Mueller, going into Congress asking for tools they already gave him.
It’s all quite sad, as the FBI has the potential to do a great amount of good in America, especially with some of the dedicated agents it has, but the corrupt agenda that trickles down from headquarters is constantly disgracing and humiliating the FBI as a whole…and the press is always there to capture it for posterity.
With proper leadership the agency could really kick butt, but with headquarters in chaos under Mueller’s poor stewardship, bad things are going to keep happening, for which excuses will continue to be made to Congress. The American people deserve more than that for the billions a year in their tax dollars given to the agency.
Pakistan’s Khan denies selling advanced nuke blueprint
Jun 17 03:52 AM US/Eastern – Pakistani scientist Abdul Qadeer Khan on Tuesday denied selling blueprints for an advanced nuclear weapon to Iran or North Korea, telling AFP that Western countries were to blame…
“This is all a lie, there is no truth in this. It is total bulls**t,” Khan told AFP by telephone from his Islamabad villa, where he has been kept under house arrest since confessing to proliferation activities in 2004.
“The Western countries are suppliers of the technology, they sold it, they are the proliferators…. Why don’t they publish juicy stories about Israel. There is not a single word about Israel on the nuclear issue,” he added.
Boeing Scientist Charged with Mishandling Govt. Info
June 16, 2008 – A former Boeing scientist who specialized in anti-missile systems for aircrafts was charged in federal court today with the unlawful retention of national defense information. Abraham Lesnik will plead guilty to the charge, his lawyer Marc Harris told ABCNews.com.
Agents in the FBI’s foreign intelligence unit opened a criminal investigation into Lesnik in 2006 after questions were raised as to whether or not classified information ended up in the hands of unauthorized individuals, including foreigners.
Rogue Scientist A.Q. Khan Allegedly Sold Stolen Nuclear Warhead Blueprints To Dangerous Factions
June 16. 2008
Doc Brown He Is Not! (Dr. A.Q. Khan)
Pakistani scientist Abdul Qadeer Khan, who is under house arrest, is being accused of selling stolen, sophisticated nuclear weapons blueprints to dangerous parties in the Middle East.
Doc “1.21 gigawatz” Brown (Back to the Future)
The information was discovered on computers “belonging to the smuggling network” A.Q. Khan is said to be head of. Washington is not sure who Khan sold the plans to, but are concerned at the news, as several entities in the region have been producing more sophisticated weapons, resembling the swiped blueprints.
Nuclear weapons often contain uranium or plutonium (you know, stuff that ends in “ium”). I saw a photo of plutonium and it was in the form of a cylindrical, metal object.
Being the brilliant scientific mind I am I thought to myself that can’t be plutonium. In the movie “Back to the Future” it was in liquid form and in vials. That thing (pictured below) looks like a discus (though I wouldn’t advise you throwing it):
Then I scrolled down some more and there were the vials of plutonium -just like in Back To The Future. Where’s Doc Brown when you need him.
Seriously, this news is quite alarming, especially in light of how negligent the government can be in matters of national security.
Nuclear ring reportedly had advanced design
Published: June 15, 2008 – WASHINGTON: American and international investigators say that they have found the electronic blueprints for an advanced nuclear weapon on computers that belonged to the nuclear smuggling network run by Abdul Qadeer Khan, the rogue Pakistani nuclear scientist, but that they have not been able to determine whether they were sold to Iran or the smuggling ring’s other customers.
Today, the Roswell Beacon (Georgia) ran an item about disgruntled race hate groups that may try to kill black candidate Barack Obama in the run up to the 2008 U.S. presidential election.
Barack Obama hoping to stay off the Clinton Body Count list
In Zimbabwe politician Morgan Tsvangirai has publicly accused president Robert Mugabe of plotting to murder him for running against him in the election, whose results are being disputed. Wow, tough room.
Zimbabwe holds democratic elections, and thus, people should be free to establish their candidacies, without fear of reprisal.
As a world community, the standing rule should be, elections should never transition into violence. In countries that allow citizens to vote, elections should be fair and accurate (you heard that Diebold), reflecting the will of the people, not the will of the candidate.
Benazir Bhutto was murdered in Pakistan this year for daring to run for office. Many say she knew what she was getting into and that she would be assassinated, but that’s no excuse for murder.
Becoming a head of state anywhere in the world, should not be this difficult – too many people trying to pick off others they disagree with, in acts of cold blooded murder. Is this what so-called power does to people.
It’s difficult enough having to prepare your platform via finding ways to combat poverty, famine, disease, and preparing for then rebuilding after natural disasters that inevitably strike all nations at some point or another. However, it is fundamentally wrong and unjust, that one cannot peacefully and productively run for office without having the proverbial target slapped on your back.
Robert Mugabe’s men in plot to kill Morgan Tsvangirai
ZIMBABWE’S opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai was forced to cancel his planned return home yesterday after learning of a plot by President Robert Mugabe’s forces to kill him.
Tsvangirai had planned to launch his campaign today for next month’s run-off election for president with a rally in Bula-wayo that would have marked the start of what was billed as a nationwide “victory tour”.
As he was preparing to leave for Johannesburg airport at 8am yesterday to fly to Zimbabwe, he received a telephone call from a sympathiser within Mugabe’s state security apparatus, warning him that he would be assassinated. When he passed the details to his own security team, they refused to let him travel.
“He gets phone calls of threats every day but this was specific, a well-structured plan,” said George Sibotshiwe, Tsvangirai’s spokesman. “Politically and personally he desperately wanted to be back, but he’s no help to Zimbabweans dead.”

4 FBI Agents Wounded In Pakistan Bomb Blast
4 FBI agents were wounded in a Pakistan bomb blast at a restaurant on Sunday, March 16, 2008. A bomb was tossed into the Luna Caprese restaurant in Islamabad, Pakistan, where the 4 FBI agents and two British diplomats were dining. A Turkish aide worker died in the blast.
It was also revealed Spitzer’s security detail did not detect the FBI surveilling him. Well, clearly they didn’t have the FBI agent from the Pimp C funeral doing surveillance that day.
(You blended right in – parking lot full of black guys and a lone white guy in a government issue car shooting photos. You should be a spy in the Middle East, they’d never spot you). – March 12. 2008
The FBI is usually discreet in undercover operations. After all, they did infiltrate the Italian American mafia on different occasions. However, it must be noted, they did so using Italian and Hispanic agents that could blend in with the mafia set and pass for Italian.
This is why I don’t understand the logic of why they use agents who don’t blend in on other assignments. You wouldn’t use black FBI agents to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan. Grand dragon would spot them immediately. It wouldn’t work. He wouldn’t think they are white people with tans.
So why send a white agent in visible settings to do surveillance on black rappers? And why send strapping, corn fed white boys from the Midwest to the Middle East?
A television news broadcast last night showed photos of the injured in the Luna Caprese bombing in Islamabad – they were white men who look Anglo-Saxon. The broadcast also mentioned there was a clearly visible white government SUV outside the restaurant.
With the prevalent anti-American and anti-western attitudes in the Middle East right now, due to Bush’s illegal war in Iraq, why draw attention to yourselves as agents and diplomats when you go over there.
Judging by the footage on the news last night, it appears you didn’t send Muslim FBI agents, El Debarge look alike black agents or brown Puerto Rican agents, who would have at least blended in.
For the record, I do not agree with the bombing. Soldiers fighting in combat is one thing, but throwing bombs into areas with civilians is wrong. The war in Iraq needs to stop and conversely the civilian and suicide bombings need to stop as well.
It is as clear as Nicole Kidman that President Pervez Musharraf cannot control them. Benazir Bhutto went back and she was killed in a bomb blast.
After many years of controversy and Pakistani criminal investigations into financial impropriety, Benazir Bhutto left her $10 million dollar mansion in Surrey, England, to prepare to run for office in her native country. Her return was cut short by her assassination.
All this collateral damage is happening due to Bush’s interests in the region. People want peace and order in the world, but not at the price of all this collateral damage, at the expense of all these innocent lives. Bush needs to rethink his foreign policy in Pakistan and the Middle East as a whole, as it is not working and only serving to get people killed or injured.

…This One Is Sure To Cause A Fuehrer, I Mean Furor
January 21. 2008
The London Times seems to have run into the same treachery, deceitfulness and corruption I did when trying to obtain files from the FBI under the Freedom Of Information Act.
Congress declared by national order that you are supposed to be able to obtain said files, but Robert Mueller, who routinely engages in treachery that would put the mafia to shame, often decides otherwise.
Congratulate yourself, Mueller. Now your treachery and deceitfulness is known worldwide.
“THE FBI has been accused of covering up a key case file detailing evidence against corrupt government officials and their dealings with a network stealing nuclear secrets.
The assertion follows allegations made in The Sunday Times two weeks ago by Sibel Edmonds, an FBI whistleblower, who worked on the agency’s investigation of the network.
Edmonds, a 37-year-old former Turkish language translator, listened into hundreds of sensitive intercepted conversations while based at the agency’s Washington field office.
She says the FBI was investigating a Turkish and Israeli-run network that paid high-ranking American officials to steal nuclear weapons secrets. These were then sold on the international black market to countries such as Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.
* For sale: West’s deadly nuclear secrets
One of the documents relating to the case was marked 203A-WF-210023. Last week, however, the FBI responded to a freedom of information request for a file of exactly the same number by claiming that it did not exist. But The Sunday Times has obtained a document signed by an FBI official showing the existence of the file.
Edmonds believes the crucial file is being deliberately covered up by the FBI because its contents are explosive. She accuses the agency of an “outright lie”.
“I can tell you that that file and the operations it refers to did exist from 1996 to February 2002. The file refers to the counterintelligence programme that the Department of Justice has declared to be a state secret to protect sensitive diplomatic relations,” she said.
The freedom of information request had not been initiated by Edmonds. It was made quite separately by an American human rights group called the Liberty Coalition, acting on a tip-off it received from an anonymous correspondent.
The letter says: “You may wish to request pertinent audio tapes and documents under FOIA from the Department of Justice, FBI-HQ and the FBI Washington field office.”
It then makes a series of allegations about the contents of the file – many of which corroborate the information that Edmonds later made public.
Edmonds had told this newspaper that members of the Turkish political and diplomatic community in the US had been actively acquiring nuclear secrets. They often acted as a conduit, she said, for Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), Pakistan’s spy agency, because they attracted less suspicion.”

UK Times: Official Documents Prove FBI lied to protect US officials
by Luke Ryland Page 1 of 2 page(s)
January 19, 2008 at 19:36:44
The UK’s Sunday Times has another explosive article out tonight.
THE FBI has been accused of covering up a key case file detailing evidence against corrupt government officials and their dealings with a network stealing nuclear secrets.
The Times has obtained official documents which prove that the FBI is lying about the existence of a counterintelligence operation targeting high-level US officials and Turkish operatives.
The FBI’s comments demonstrate conclusively that either:
a) They are lying, or
b) They have destroyed the evidence of this multi-year investigation concerning the corruption of high-level US officials, the nuclear black market, money laundering and narcotics trafficking.
With the FBI claiming that these documents don’t exist, we must conclude either that they are demonstrably lying, or that they have destroyed all the evidence.
Unfortunately for the FBI, we are aware of at least two other cases where this operation was referenced, and those references were documented outside the FBI…

It seems the world is out of whack. There has been massive flooding in England, America, China and Pakistan. It’s times such as these that should remind us that we are a global community, none of us immune to disaster or struggle.
We all need to help each other weather these storms and rebuild, as they can happen anywhere and overnight. No country is exempt from natural disasters. They have happened all over the world at some time or another.
