Skip to comments.The Wilson, Rockefeller, & McCarthy Ties

Very interesting stuff going on in the Mary McCarthy files. It appears many of us missed a few important connections:
One aspect of her background so far comparatively unexamined is her West African uranium connection. She served in a key government position concerned with West African nations producing yellowcake uranium at the same time that Joseph Wilson was working in the area. The two may be considered members of the yellowcake community within the Clinton national security apparatus of the 1990s.
There are more questions than answers for the moment, but yellowcake uramium is not only of strategic importance for WMD puposes, it is also a highly profitable commodity traded under UN supervision and restrictions, a set of circumstances known to produce extraordinary opportunities for both profit and corruption, as in Oil-for-Food. These comparatively still waters may run deep. Investigators equipped with both subpoena power and security clearance may be called for.
Mary McCarthy held positions in both African and Latin American analysis desks at Langley while Wilson was U.S. Ambassador to the Gabonese Republic from 1992 to 1995. Gabon was a producer of yellowcake uranium. Wilsons powerful position in Gabon from 1992 to 1995 raises questions about his official trip to Niger to discredit President Bushs claim that Iraq had sought quantities of uranium from Africa.
During his time in Gabon, Wilson must have been deeply knowledgeable about uranium production and trade there, and must have been familiar with officials of the French energy giant COGEMA, now consolidated into the French Areva Group, a firm closely involved with the French government which appoints members of its board. Joe Wilson has his own French connection.
So, who better to send to Africa to dig up dirt to refute intelligence findings of both the US and Great Britain concerning the Iraq-Africa yellowcake trade?
The article then goes into great detail about the loophole the UN institued to allow:
certain nuclear materials to be maintained and traded even by countries known to be covertly developing a nuclear capability or who supported terrorist groups.
And ask’s the question, what else could have been gained by this cabal of intelligence officials:
Speaking of dealing in commodities, this whole affair brings us back to square one and Mary McCarthy. One of her previous employerswas Beri, SA. Possibly by coincidence Beri provides a Mineral Extraction Risk Assessment service for up to 145 countries that are expected to show rapid growth in oil, gas, and mineral extraction capacity. If one had advance access to economic intelligence and had fostered close business ties over the years with uranium producers, huge financial gains would be possible. Could the Wilson-McCarthy-Africa connection may indicate another instance of US intelligence and Foreign Service personnel taking advantage of regulatory loopholes and lax security in third world countries for personal gain?
Macranger, the former intelligence official, believes he knows what is coming next:
I can’t tire of telling you how important it is that Mary Loose Lips has been brought down. More than just a random ‘discovery’ - she is the key to the lock. Guys at the agency and the DOJ knew exactly where to target - and they hit it dead on. In the coming days you will see why Senator Rockefeller HAD to make such an emergency visit to Syria in 2002. For a little tip, read here.
The “here” he is referring to is a Italian article that points out Rockefeller’s business dealings with none other, Cogema. Cogema runs the Niger uranium trade.
Ping a ling!!! There's more to the article. Finish it up at the link.
Are we sure it's Jay Rockefellers business dealings .. and not the family's in general??
check this out
I wouldn't be surprised if the whole family is corrupt.
Let's not forget that Wilson himself is now an international business consultant, whose "portfolio" of business "expertise" (how to do a deal) is specifically targeted with "business opportunities" in Africa. This is not so unusual for former ambassador types who did not have major "commericial" careers before their state deparment service. But, there is a history of these types using their "diplomatic" expertise and "in side the beltway" connections to further the financial aims of themselves and their clients, at the expense of U.S. foreign policy and national security concerns.
Is it no logical to wonder if Wilson's major financial friends in France - whose businesses have the most extensive business activities in Africa in the sale and extraction of strategic commodities - were actually concerned about too much scrutiny of Niger.
Let's not forget (1)the history of Iraq's nuclear program begins with France helping Sadaam get it started, (2)the "forged documents" intended to discredit interest in Niger have the fingerprints of the French intelligence service all over them (3)France was, duplicitously, (a)the unnamed source of the uncontrovertible evidence of Saddam attempting to make a uranium deal with Niger (an actual letter between Iraq and Niger confirming Saddam's desire), (b)yet they then told the US that they had also seen the "forged documents" and vouched for them as well, when internally they had already decided they were forged, (c)then waited until after the US presentation of evidence to the UN to tell the U.S. they had erred in their earlier assessment of the forged documents - which is a lie, because the "error" was in lieing to us that they ever supported the veracity of the forged documents, and (4)Wilson's personal French connections and personal connections with businesses looking to make deals in Africa - is it too much to suspect that Wilson, French business interests and French intelligence are actually hiding something with respect to Niger and uranium?
The Dumbrats hawk their "culture of corruption" mantra while UAE/Dubai puts $14 million into a westcoast consultancy who then pays millions to Bill Clinton to go make America bashing speeches in Dubai and hires Madeline Halfbright and others to get the Dubai ports deal safely through the secret CFI commission process. A lieing ex-ambassador, an idiot ex-state dept head, a lieing ex-president and all intertwined as shills for hire to some of the most unscrupulous wheelers and dealers on the planet. Whose corrupt, and whose corruption threatens our national security??
Interesting, but I tend to think Joe's trip to Niger was a free ride and board, he was already going there on business apparently.
But a Rockefeller - Desmarais conspiracy would be nice!
Bookmark & BTTT
This thing has long tentacles...and lots of them, apparently!
Agreed ... but if this can be connected directly to Senator Rockefeller ... then he is some deep trouble
And IF true .. a Democrat U.S. Senator selling the country out for money will sink the Party
The comment from the former intelligence official was interesting also
I cannot keep up! Or get it straight.
Hi, Jet. Thanks for the ping. I'll read this more carefully tomorrow. What a tangled web, huh?
I'm glad I'm not the only one....my head is spinning..but I am SO praying that Rockefeller goes DOWN...before the November elections..
I have no expectations, but I do find this oh so interesting.
LOL .. same here
