"I'm telling you that these people are untouchable. They are the untouchables because you see this with many, many people, and it's not raising any flags, the mainstream media is not reporting on it, the congress is not doing anything about it, so what does Marc Grossman have to worry about?"

While I was away, quite a bit of information surfaced on Sibel Edmonds' case. Apparently ABC News discussed former congressman Dennis Hastert's new jobat the DC law-and-lobby firme of Dickstein Shapiro. Dennis Hastert was named in FBI tapes that Sibel Edmonds translated as taking drug/bribe money from Turkish agents in the US. Not surprisingly, the TC and Turkish companies are clients of Dickstein Shapiro.
For more information and commentary on the Hastert story, see what Luke had to say at Let Sibel Edmonds Speak. There you'll find, among other things, that the Clinton administration had appointed a special prosecutor from the Injustice Department to investigate congressman--not only Hastert--who were on the Turkish take. The Bush administration killed the investigation as soon as it was took over.
The other news has to do with the nuclear black market that Turkey, Marc Grossman, and A.Q. Khan--among others--were involved with. In this case, the CIA ordered the Swiss government to destroy evidence of a family that supplied the A.Q. Khan network with "supplies". The members of the family involved were also CIA assets.
Tens of thousands of documents relating to the case were destroyed by the Swiss government, working for the CIA. The IAEA was also present with the CIA at the destruction of the documents, which means that it is also in on the game and cannot be trusted.
As Luke summarizes:
The US government has done just about everything it can to ensure that Sibel Edmonds is prohibited from spilling the beans on what she knows about the nuclear black market, among other things. Now we see the hand of the US government apparently reaching into a foreign democracy [???--Mizgîn's question marks], exporting the concept of the 'unitary executive' and upsetting the balance of powers, to destroy evidence which was to be used to prosecute crimes involving the spread of nuclear weapons to rogue regimes.
The US government had previously demonstrated that it didn't wanted to prosecute these crimes, therefore their flimsy ex-poste rationales for destroying the evidence, in secret, need to be held up for extra scrutiny.
You can listen to Scott Horton's interview with Sibel and Luke on these matters, here.
There's a wrap-up, and information on the Injustice Departments redacted IG report on Sibel at Luke's. As Sibel mentions in the radio interview:
It is the fact that there is this nuclear black market, and we have many, many players, and some of these players happen to be our allies, some of these players happen to be U.S. persons, and yet, we only get partial stories, and whenever it is convenient for our government to say "Oh, okay if it is Syria, or if it is Iran…" and yet looking the other way when it happens to be people who we call our allies.
If that's not the very definition of hypocrisy, I don't know what is; but I do know that the "untouchables" are very touchable.
