Looks good and I like your 'jumping words' and the little James Bond gif. Your profile page looks great now!
Thanks! I'll ping you to the update when it's ready.
Is the Detroit guy you're thinking of David Bonior? I haven't found a direct connection between him and Wilson, but they did both have links to the Alamoudis and the antiwar movement's Congressional allies, and I think there are signs of coordination at those levels. I've been writing up something on that I'll be posting shortly--meant to get it out this week and didn't quite make it.
Beautiful work. I missed this when you posted it, but I'm bookmarking it now.
Amazing piece of work! You are good! Thank you!
I realized after I typed that the Detroit guy you mean is probably Shakir Al-Khafaji, who also financed Scott Ritter's movie, right? He paid Jim McDermott, who went with Bonior to Baghdad; and Bonior in turn received a campaign donation from Abdurahman Alamoudi on other occasion for lobbying activity against anti-terrorist legislation--that's why I thought of him when you mentioned Detroit and Alamoudi, but then I reread and realized he wasn't in the Volcker Report so you probably meant someone else. Sorry for any confusion.
I wrote this in between working on the VVAW stuff (that was a busy month!!!) and I didn't think to ping you because we were wrapped up in that; sorry about that! I'll be sure to ping you to the update.
I made up a separate blank text Jag.jpg so I can simply add font or a transparent BG text .gif or black BG text .jpg on that basic image

Just finding the right head is the trick
It is clear why Mr. Wilson was at this event, but why would Valerie Plame be there?
We now know that Ms. Plame had been a covert agent, her appearance at this function would have had to be cleared with her superiors. Why would she be there if not on official business?
"Headhunters Inc", send me the head you want!
I've been wondering the same thing, and haven't come up with an answer yet. Was Plame working on Counterproliferation yet at that time? This would've been early 1997, and would've been about the time the CIA recalled her from overseas assignments, reportedly due to concerns over Aldrich Ames.
PS to add on a thought I just had: maybe she was there in her capacity as an "energy analyst" for Brewster-Jennings, i.e., to make contact with people at the Turkish embassy who might be of interest to the CIA.
Reportedly there is a link between Valerie Plame and Judith Miller in the AIPAC scandal.
That prosecution is separate from Fitz' case so he may not have juridiction over all the
Judith Miller is Unnamed Woman in AIPAC Spy Ring Indictment
Let me see if I understand the timeline: Wilson is married to Jacqueline who is working for French Intelligence.
While Joe is the spouse of a French Intelligence officer, Joe has his hand in Valeries panties so she will sing like a canary that she works for the CIA as a spy.
Valerie Plame is outing herself to the then current spouse of a French Intelligence officer. This is all prior to 1998.
Am I missing something?
Thanks for the link; I hadn't heard about that. I'll look into it.
