Plame & Wilson v. Libby, Rove, Cheney, & Does

Valerie Plame and Joseph Wilson have, as you have presumably seen by now, sued [PDF] Scooter Libby, Karl Rove, Dick Cheney, and ten John Does.  They're represented by Proskauer Rose with Erwin Chemerinsky of counsel.  The suit includes Constitutional (Bivens) claims, section 1985 and 1986 claims, along with pendent state law claims -- more specifically, it alleges First and Fifth Amendment violations, civil rights conspiracy, failure to prevent civil rights violations, public disclosure of private facts, and civil conspiracy.

James Copland at Point of Law wonders "if Republicans so casually dismissive of concerns about litigation interfering with executive branch operations when Paula Jones sued Bill Clinton will still be singing the same tune."  (My prediction: not so much.)

MEMO

TO: Rep. John Sarbanes
426 Cannon H.O.B.
U.S. House of Representatives
Washington 20515
DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, USA

FROM: Paul Andrew Mitchell, B.A., M.S.
Private Attorney General, 18 U.S.C. 1964(a)

DATE: March 16, 2007 A.D.

SUBJECT: testimony of Mrs. Valerie Plame Wilson,
Committee on Oversight and Government Reform

Greetings Rep. Sarbanes:

One of your questions to Mrs. Wilson during the hearing today was this: “What was to be gained from outing your undercover status at the CIA?”

Because that was such an important question, and because my office has been in a pro bono verbal agreement to provide the U.S. Coast Guard with 9/11 follow-up, please allow me to share with you some of the information which we still consider to be the most probable correct answer to your question.

First of all, please become aware of a report entitled “The Third Temple’s Holy of Holies: Israel’s Nuclear Weapons,” by Warner D. Farr, LTC, U.S. Army, as published by the USAF Counterproliferation Center at Maxwell AFB in Alabama in September of 1999 (see enclosed). As you know, that date was exactly 2 years before the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

A key paragraph in that report states:

After the 1967 war, France stopped supplies of uranium to Israel. These supplies were from former French colonies of Gabon, Niger, and the Central Africa Republic. Israel had small amounts of uranium from Negev phosphate mines and had bought some from Argentina and South Africa, but not in the large quantities supplied by the French. Through a complicated undercover operation, the Israelis obtained uranium oxide, known as yellow cake, held in a stockpile in Antwerp. Using a West German front company and a high seas transfer from one ship to another in the Mediterranean, they obtained 200 tons of yellow cake. The smugglers labeled the 560 sealed oil drums “Plumbat,” which means lead, hence “Operation Plumbat.”

In a similar report which we obtained in the course of our research for the U.S. Coast Guard, we found corroborative facts reported by author Gordon Thomas in his article entitled “Mossad and the Russian Mafia Plutonium Connection” dated November 21, 2003 (see enclosed).

Author Thomas reports that the Mossad have been receiving at the Port of Amsterdam plutonium stolen by the Russian Mafia from former Soviet nuclear stockpiles in the Ural Mountains, and then expediting that stolen plutonium to Israel’s nuclear reactor at Dimona, in the Negev Desert in southern Israel. Moreover, Thomas alleges that this smuggling operation can be confirmed by contacting Dutch Intel-1, under auspices of Interpol: Intel-1 were responsible for setting up and executing the sting operation which caught the Mossad red-handed.

Without having access to any classified intelligence concerning Mrs. Wilson’s undercover missions, it was not difficult to find on the Internet several reports of her past involvement in finding and intercepting international black-market shipments of fissionable materials, and all manner of high technology equipment, like high-speed centrifuges that are required to fabricate and assemble nuclear weapons of mass destruction. Reportedly, she did so with the assistance of several dozen CIA co-workers, all of whom used the Brewster-Jennings Company to “cover” their real purposes and mission.

Similarly, it has already been reported widely on the Internet that her team of WMD investigators did succeed in intercepting and preventing the shipment of VX binary nerve gas from Turkey into Iraq, evidently being attempted by operatives hired by the White House for the purpose of “planting” such VX nerve gas in Iraq, where no such nerve gas had previously been found by dozens of UN weapons inspectors searching diligently for same. Contact UN weapons expert Hans Blix, on this crucial point of fact.

And, another shipment of weapons of mass destruction was headed for the port of Basra before it was also intercepted by Mrs. Wilson’s undercover team, and prevented from unloading at that port of entry, destination Iraq.

Now, in light of these historical facts, which can be confirmed by your good offices without too much trouble, it is terribly evident to us that Karl Rove specifically desired to halt the effective work that Mrs. Wilson’s team had already demonstrated by those successful intercepts. If I may be blunt, I have already written this many times in my email correspondence to people around the world, and I still feel the same way today. Specifically, I can just hear Karl Rove telephoning Ariel Sharon to say, “You can resume your shipments now. Your Mossad agents are no longer being watched.”

Once the Russian Mafia discovered who was competing effectively with them in the black market for fissionable materials like high-grade plutonium and weapons-grade uranium, it doesn’t require a genius or a rocket scientist to predict what they must have done immediately after they learned the true identity of Brewster-Jennings, Valerie Plame and her international team, working up to that point under cover of that company. We think they were murdered, gang-land style. And, I would be very surprised if one of the questions the CIA would not allow your Committee to ask did not address this very same issue, i.e. were Mrs. Wilson’s co-workers liquidated by the Russian Mafia as a direct result of her “outing” in the Washington Post? We still believe so.

It is against this background that we tend to regard the recent criminal trial in USA v. Libby to be something akin to a charade, or circus parade, complete with clowns in various costumes designed to conceal the real identities of the really guilty parties.

If the weapons of mass destruction have been in Israel all along, then why didn’t George W. Bush order an invasion of Israel instead? That may sound like an unnecessarily rhetorical question, at this junction. However, my office has recently served Rabbi Dov S. Zakheim with an INVOICE and NOTICE OF CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION, holding him and the State of Israel directly responsible for embezzling at least $2.3 Trillion U.S. Dollars from the Pentagon.

As you may recall, former Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld publicly admitted that this sum was discovered “missing” from the Pentagon’s bank accounts, and that further large sums may also be missing, if recent financial audits can be confirmed with confidence.

If Israel has been fabricating nuclear weapons with plutonium stolen from former Soviet nuclear stockpiles, and with an enormous sum of U.S. Dollars stolen from the Pentagon, then justice will demand restitution of both by all individuals who have been responsible for this international travesty, whether they be past and present employees of the United States or of any other nation on planet Earth.

Please consider me ready, willing and able to provide further testimony to your House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, provided that my safe travel to and from D.C. can be successfully negotiated with U.S. Marshals assigned to me under their Federal Witness Security Program.


Thank you, Rep. Sarbanes, for your continuing commitment to finding the real truth of all matters discussed above.


Sincerely yours,

/s/ Paul Andrew Mitchell
