WORLD NEWS TOMORROW | WNT NEWS – USA: Condi Rice, as with most Washington insiders, has a secret that can take her down. We don’t know how many but one is serious enough to cost her any security clearance and to make her allegiance to the United States totally suspect.
First, we will look at her National Security Commission, a hand picked group of spies. Remember, each member carried, not only a Top Secret security clearance but an “SC” clearance as well, known as “Special Compartmentalized Intelligence,” this is a higher rating that most are even aware of and awarded to only the most carefully vetted public servants, usually with a history of dedicated combat service. None of Rice’s staff were veterans, almost all were Israeli citizens.
The “downfall” that should occur will involve serious breaches of trust, violations of national security policy and perhaps much more involving Matthew Bryza.
Today, Bryza is a former Ambassador from the US married to a Turkish national living in Istanbul and deeply enmeshed in the Caspian Basin oil business. He is a young man, born in 1964. His ambassadorship was stripped away for statements he made in denial of the Armenian genocide. His history as a diplomat puts him in the Russian embassy during the mid 90’s after spending his first years in Poland during the end of the Soviet influence there.
When President Bush (43) took office, he appointed Condi Rice as his National Security Advisor. She took over running the National Security Council, bringing most members over from Project for a New American Century. This included Richard Clarke, as Counter Terrorism Chief, Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle.
Let’s start with Perle. Perle had already been accused of spying, according to Seymour Hersh in his book, the Price of Power (page 322):
“In mid-October 1970, [Henry] Kissinger testified, when a second wiretap was authorized for Helmut Sonnenfeldt, who was Kissinger’s closest friend on the NSC [National Security Council] staff, his role was even more tangential…. Richard N. Perle, a foreign policy aide to Senator Jackson, was overheard discussing classified information that had been supplied to him by someone on the National Security Council Staff….. Kissinger – perhaps seeking to ward off a Nixon explosion – handed him (Haldeman) the FBI wiretap on the Israeli embassy and requested that the FBI be assigned to determine which NSC staff member was in contact with Richard Perle… Kissinger had to know that Hoover and Haldeman would suspect Sonnenfeldt, whoi was known from previous wiretaps to have close ties to the Israelis as well as Perle.”
Thus, the day Perle was brought over, he was a known espionage agent. Rice would be sure he was not alone.
Next was Steve Rosen, who was arrested for spying along with Lawrence Franklin, assistant to Paul Wolfowitz and Richard Perle and Keith Weissman. Rosen was brought into the White House by Rice, Franklin by Wolfowitz, who was brought into the White House by Rice. Weissman was given full national security access though not a government employee by Rice.
Rosen, head of the Rand Corporation was Middle East Chief on the NSC, in direct contrast to reports that list him as only an “AIPAC” (Israeli lobbyist”) as was Weissman. All three were arrested for spying, the espionage organized by AIPAC and the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative “think tank.” Franklin was sentenced to 13 years in prison and charges against Weissman and Rosen were “suspended” on “national security concerns” by the Bush Justice Department.
President Bush had Franklins spying sentence commuted to 10 months of “house arrest.”
Douglas Feith was appointed Under Secretary of Defense, part of the same group, under suspicion but never arrested. He came from PNAC also as did Elliot Abrams, convicted in 1991 on two counts of lying to congress during the Iran Contra investigation. Reagan had appointed him Assistant Secretary of State for Humanitarian Affairs yet CIA insiders have him deeply involved in the genocide in Central America, Guatemala in particular, that killed over 300,000. His greatest project was El Salvador, however.
” Loved ones of the thousand unarmed Salvadoran peasants, including 139 children, killed by U.S.-trained contra troops in the 1981 El Mozote massacre may be less inclined to let bygones be bygones. Abrams has been a consistent massacre denier, even calling Washington’s policy in El Salvador a “fabulous achievement.” He told Congress that the reports carried in the New York Times and Washington Post a month after El Mozote were Communist propaganda.
In 1993, members of a Salvadoran Truth commission testified about the massacre in a congressional hearing of the House Western Hemisphere subcommittee. Chairman Robert G. Torricelli (D-New Jersey) vowed to review for possible perjury “every word uttered by every Reagan administration official” in congressional testimony on El Salvador. Abrams denounced Torricelli’s words as “McCarthyite crap.”
Eventually documentation emerged proving that the Reagan administration had known about El Mozote and other human rights violations all along. Abrams, however, carefully denied knowledge of the assassination of Salvadoran Archbishop Oscar Romero, committed shortly after the cleric denounced government terror. “Anybody who thinks you’re going to find a cable that says that Roberto d’Aubuisson murdered the archbishop is a fool,” Abrams was quoted in a March 21, 1993 article in the Washington Post.”
Bryza was brought into the NSC by Rice in April 2001 to head the vital Turkey (Eurasia) desk at the NSC. He was given top security clearances which were later discovered to have been awarded under, not just false pretenses, but to someone actually living with a Turkish intelligence agent to whom he passed vital US intelligence for years.
That intelligence, never entirely cataloged, due to Bush administration obstruction, went to Russia, China, Iran and elsewhere. The investigation was handled by the FBI, never reported until now. Did Bryza access more information than Pollard? The truth is that nobody was able to ask as Bryza was “protected” by Condi Rice who had the power, through President Bush, to quash any investigation and, as we will read later, clearly violate any law.
Here is how it started;
Our sources are at the highest levels of the Bush White House.
First you must understand that the FBI is not allowed to interview any White House or NSC staff on foreign policy or intel issues without permission from the National Security Adviser. Naturally, the FBI finds this objectionable. Here is part of what we were told:
In early 2002, two FBI agents asked if I could help them prove that this policy was basically a green light for anyone on the White House and NSC staff to commit national security breaches with no investigation. They asked if I knew of any current examples of an NSC staffer who might be compromising intelligence. If they could prove that this was going on, they hoped to convince Condi to change the policy.
So I told them that Matt Bryza, who was handling Caspian issues, was living with a Turkish national, Zeyno Baran, who was not only the stepdaughter of the owner of Sabah, a Turkish newspaper, but also was unofficially lobbying hard for US support of the Baku Ceyhan oil pipeline. I said I was pretty certain Matt had not mentioned that during his clearance process. Also, the last time I had seen Matt and Zeyno was at Steve Rosen’s house
