TOP US OFFICIALS REPORTEDLY INVOLVED IN GANGSTERISM - REVELATIONS OF SIBEL EDMONDS

Catli has links to terrorism, gangsterism and Chicago in the USA.

In the summer of 2001, 4 months before 9 11, the FBI's monitoring of Turkish agents revealed Turkish contacts with Feith, Wolfowitz, and Perle.

These people had discussions with the Turkish ambassador in Washington.

The subject of the discussions was a deal whereby the U.S. would invade Iraq.


According to Interpol, "Turkey is a major staging area and transportation route for heroin destined for European markets."[37]

Reportedly, members of the Turkish military and police are members of drug gangs.

Sometimes there is gang warfare.

The CIA and its friends in NATO are reported to have used 'terrorist' gangs in order to keep the 'right wing' in power in Europe, including Turkey.

"Those structures still exist," claims newspaper columnist Cengiz Candar. ('Deep state plot' Coup rumours about rogue security officials set Turkey abuzz)

The CIA is believed to work closely with certain right-wing forces in Turkey.

In 1996, a car crashed in the town of Susurluk, in Turkey.

The car contained a top police chief and a top politician.

The car also contained a man called Abdullah Çatli, who was a drug trafficker and contract killer with links to fascism and the CIA's Operation Gladio.

In 1998 the magazine Monde Diplomatique alleged that Abdullah Çatli organized the 1981 attempt to assassinate the Pope, "in exchange for the sum of 3 million German mark"

In 1989, Catli was on Interpol's 'most wanted' list.

In 1989, Catli was able to travel to the USA, be granted residency, settle in Chicago, and continued to conduct his operations.

According to Cengiz Candar, "Susurluk revealed weird connections between state officials and those who operate outside the limits of the law. It happened at a time when we had a lot of extra-judicial killings in Turkey."

"But the investigation stopped just as there was speculation it was reaching very sensitive spots, even the military establishment. That only confirmed the existence of these networks in the public consciousness." ('Deep state plot' Coup rumours about rogue security officials set Turkey abuzz)

Sibel Edmonds

Sibel Edmonds, as a translator for the FBI, translated recordings of conversations between suspected Turkish intelligence agents and various Americans.

She was concerned that one of her fellow translators, Can Dickerson, was a member of the American-Turkish Council, a Turkish group being investigated for:

A. Bribing top government officials and members of Congress
B. Drug trafficking
C. Illegal weapons sales
D. Money laundering
E. Nuclear proliferation.

Sibel was sacked from the FBI in April 2002 after she raised her concerns.

She was shocked that no effort was made to deal with the corruption that she had come across.

A Department of Justice inspector general's report called Edmonds's allegations 'credible.'

Two ranking Senate Judiciary Committee members backed her.

'60 Minutes' found her claims believable.

John Ashcroft's Justice Department gagged her.

In August 2009, she was able to testify under oath in a court case in Ohio.

Marc Grossman

The 1 November 2009 Issue of The American Conservative has an article entitled: Who's Afraid of Sibel Edmonds?

This article covers the evidence Edmonds gave in court in August 2009.

Among the points made:

1. Members of Congress and US government employees were giving information to foreign agents. Sibel Edmonds provided names and details.

One person identified was Marc Grossman, then the third highest-ranking official at the State Department.

While Grossman had been U.S. ambassador to Turkey (1994-97), he reportedly became involved with Turkish government operatives and with suspected criminal groups.

He also had 'suspicious' contact with Israelis.

Reportedly, Grossman was involved in the 'Susurluk' scandal which involved top criminals and top army and intelligence officers with whom he had been in contact.

The gangster who was killed in the 1996 Susurluk scandal was Abdullah Catli.

Catli was on Interpol's 'most wanted' list.

But Catli, in 1989, was able to travel to the USA, be granted residency, settle in Chicago, and continued to conduct his operations.

Air Force Major Douglas Dickerson worked for Grossman in Turkey. Later he went to work for Douglas Feith; and his wife Can Dickerson was hired as an FBI Turkish translator.

2. According to Edmonds:

A. Grossman, at the State Department, continued to assist his Turkish and Israeli contacts.

B. Grossman helped certain people to gain access to members of Congress such as Tom Lantos.

C. Israel, Turkey and Pakistan ended up receiving US defence information.

Perle

3. According to Edmonds:

A. officials at the Pentagon, such as Richard Perle and Douglas Feith, were also involved.

B. Perle and Feith would give to Grossman the names and personal details of certain officials in the Pentagon.

C. Grossman was being paid for his services.

D. Feith and Perle had a relationship with Kissinger's group, with Northrop Grumman, with former secretary of state James Baker's group, and with former national security adviser Brent Scowcroft.

Feith

4. According to Edmonds:

In the summer of 2001, 4 months before 9 11, the FBI monitoring of the Turks revealed contacts with Feith, Wolfowitz, and Perle.

These people had discussions with the Turkish ambassador in Washington.

The subject of the discussions was a deal whereby the U.S. would invade Iraq.

The UK would take the south.

The USA would take the rest.

The Turks wanted to take the Kurdish region.

Scowcroft and Baker had consulting firms doing business with Turkey.

Scowcroft, Baker, Richard Armitage (deputy Secretary of State), and Grossman became involved in negotiations with Turkey.

Scowcroft wanted Iraq invaded in 2001, assuming his friend Turkey would be given a good deal.

Wolfowitz.

5. According to Edmonds:

Turkish agents had a network of Turkish professors in US universities.

Turkish students would be placed in various US nuclear facilities and some were able to work for the US Air Force.

Grossman could ensure security clearance.

Information gained by the students could be sold for example to the Saudis.

6. This corruption also involved Congress.

According to Edmonds:

The FBI was looking at Bob Livingston, Dan Burton, Dennis Hastert, Tom Lantos and Jan Schakowsky.

Turkish agents found out that Jan Schakowsky was bisexual.

A Turkish agent began a relationship with her.

7. Edmonds saw conversations that suggested US agents were supporting al-Qaeda in central Asia and the Balkans, and that this contact continued until 9/11.

According to Edmonds:

These conversations, between 1997 and 2001, involved various bin Ladens, managed by US agents.

Marc Grossman was in charge.

Various bin Ladens, plus guns and drugs, travelled on NATO planes.

NATO planes took some of the drugs to Belgium. Drugs then went to the UK.

A lot of drugs were transported on military planes to the USA.

8. According to Edmonds, corrupt Chicago is central to Obama's administration.

The Turkish criminals have Chicago as the centre of their operation.

Abdullah Catli, under the name "Mehmet Ozbay", lived in the US from 1989 to 1995 and he lived close enough to Chicago to use the Turkish consulate there to obtain passports, a new Turkish identity card, and to file an extension for his required military service.

He was also married to an American and had obtained a US green card.

What may be more interesting is that Catli apparently was issued a US passport under the name "Michael Nicholsan".

During most of the time that Catli lived in the US, he was on Interpol's wanted list.

Hey Aangirfan,

On the topic of Turkish connections to various neocons, the question I would like to see discussed is whether the Turks we're talking about are 'Turkish' in the same way the Bolsheviks were 'Russian'. Which is to say, 'Yes, but...'

Today's word list:

-Donmeh
-Salonika
-Young Turks

I will admit that my knowledge of all this is skimpy but in terms of big-picture broad strokes it makes a lot of sense.

Dear Nobody,

Thank you for the word list.

As you know, dönmeh refers to Turks of 'Jewish' origin.

The dönmeh, who played a key role in the Young Turk movement, helped bring down the Ottoman Empire.

So, the neocons may well be working with the donmeh.
