Abdurahman Alamoudi's "Oil for Yellowcake"

Special Report

New Attempt to Distract Niger Uranium Export Issue Away From Libyan Rôle

Analysis. By Gregory R. Copley, Editor, GIS. New attempts are being made by officials from Niger to obfuscate the political picture with regard to the supply of Niger-originating uranium to Iraq. However, there is now a growing possibility that the reality that Niger supplied uranium to Libya, and that Libya hosted the Iraqi strategic weapons programs from about 1998 onwards, will be openly acknowledged by US and UK governments in the near future. The exclusive reporting on this matter by GIS/Defense & Foreign Affairs — reporting which was either denied or ignored in the build-up to the Iraq War — is increasingly being vindicated by other sources.

1. Who provided the forged documents to the US, and why? and

2. Was the uranium sent to Iraqi WMD laboratories and facilities in Libya, rather than Iraq?

It is now known absolutely that Libya’s External Security Organization (ESO), under the control of Moussa Koussa, who was the primary link to the US and British intelligence services in “normalizing” Libya’s relations with the US and Britain, produced and delivered the forged documents to the Italian military intelligence organization, SISMI, for onward passage to the US. At an appropriate time, the Libyans ensured that the fact that the documents was forged was leaked to the Director-General of the UN’s International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Mohamed El-Baradei, who then attacked the US assumptions on the Iraqi nuclear program by stating that the documents on which the US based its assessments were forged.

Defense & Foreign Affairs Daily, December 22, 2003: Libyan WMD Programs, Long Cited by GIS, Admitted as Qadhafi Begins Rear-Guard Action to Stave Off US Attack.

Indeed, as the original intelligence from GIS/Defense & Foreign Affairs HUMINT sources showed in 2002 and 2003, Iraq was buying uranium, but not (or not just) from the DPRK (North Korea), where the UK Special Intelligence Service (SIS) and some sources believed, based on intercept intelligence.

Loftus: “I was told about this amazing wiretap where British Intelligence overheard a call from North Korea to Libya saying, 'My god, if the Americans ever go into Iraq, they're going to find out about our nuclear program. And who's going to pay all the Iraqi nuclear scientists in Libya if Saddam falls?’”

Loftus: "Eric, that's EXACTLY it. Within a month after 9-11, British wiretaps showed that we had a MAJOR risk. Nuclear weapons in terrorist's hands would be devastating. And that's why the President said: 'OK, we're gonna shift the emphasis from Afghanistan and Osama bin Laden. We're gonna go into Iraq - that's where the evidence is - we have to capture Ali Sobree."

Later in the interview Loftus noted:

"It was THE major strategy. Qadhafi has now confirmed he is going to hand the Ali Sobree protocols over to the United States. Sobree, himself, is now in US custody and he is already scheduled as one of the first three witnesses in the trial of Saddam Hussein.”

If we believe the GIS report, and so far it seems to be the most credible, then the question is why go to such great lengths to deflect the Libya transactions?

Well, there is one person who can tie all of this together. This person was deeply involved in:

Major lobbying efforts in washington
Got FBI Director Robert Mueller to speak to his terrorist group
Was honored by the IMF and the WTO at a party sponsored by the State Department
Owned the Rock Creek Corp that employed Joe Wilson
Was caught with over $300,000 in cash in the UK
Received $300,000 cash from Libya
Was involved in real estate transactions on behalf of Libya
Plotted to kill the Saudi Prince
Taken photos with Clinton and Bush
Former Executive Director of the American Muslin Council

Abdurahman Alamoudi was arrested for supporting terrorists and for money laundering which leads us right back to Libya and the Oil for Yellowcake money laundering operation, IE caught with $300,000 in cash on his way back from Libya.

I had previously read an article about at least 10,000 Iraqi workers in Libya working on WMD'S and a complex under a mountain where all the Nuke work was being done.

Interesting how as soon as Iraq fell, Libya couldn't wait to turn over all of "it's" nuclear secrets.

If true this would GREATLY explain Ghadafi's jump to cough it up. It was Iraq's program not his and he was afraid it would come out.
Wow, Saddam is a shrewd bastard, had us all fooled and ran the entire thing from Libia.
Bush just keeps getting better and better, he is the master of behind the scenes manipulation.
I wonder how much we will never hear of because its top secret but would vindicate the administration.
Guts and a real love of this country, thank God for our wartime president, I always said the hand of god was at work in 2000

Well, if it comes out in the trial that Saddam was building a bomb in Libya. That would be great news. And the yellowcake is probably in our possession since we moved all of Libya's nuclear stuff over to believe Fort Knox as I recall from Loftus on John Batchelor's show on WABC a couple of years back.

I'm a better troll then you'll ever be.

The reason Bush never pushed the issue is that we cut a deal with Quadaffi, we didn't expose what was going on and he gave us all the materials and records.

It's called diplomacy.

By the way, Clinton knew that Osama Bin Ladin and Saddam Hussein were working together on WMD's in North Africa as well. You find proof of that in The inditement of Osama Bin Ladin by the Clinton Justice department.

I bet you also didn't know that WMD's were used in the first World Trade Center attack, enough cyanide gas to kill 40,000 people, which was almost totally destroyed by the blast.

You'll find that unbelievable factoid in the closing statement of the Judge in that trial.

I don't see why it has to be Libya OR the French. Why not both? Especially as there are reports that Rockefeller had major control over the oil involved as well as the yellowcake through the French consortium. Hopefully the Italians can figure out the nuances of Nigergate.

Hi MilleniumBug,

In the end, it is both Libya and France. The connections are too great and both had a lot to gain by deflecting the information away from both Libya and Cogema who was propbaly receiving payment for the Uranium through laundering money in the "oil for food" program.

Yes. This would mean Ghadafi was "pushed" by the Iraq invasion in a much bigger way that we imagined.

I was wondering when this story was going to surface again. As usual, the MSM got right on it. But they're too busy chasing Libby and Rove. So we have to rely on professional journals to find the news.

....2. Was the uranium sent to Iraqi WMD laboratories and facilities in Libya, rather than Iraq? .....

Bert's take for sometime now has been that Saddam subcontracted his nuclear work to Libya. This piece says he had his labs there but I would rather believe he had full time inspectors monitoring the Libyan work.

Others here have argued the timeline was wrong but this article says otherwise.

As was reported here earlier, W visited Oak Ridge to see the material brought here from Libya.

It will not be Saddam's trial. This will be saved for someone else.... Tariq Aziz for instance.

Or in my mind with Quadaffi's son who saw the sun sinking in the east and to avoid twilight sold out Saddam and put the sun back on it's normal course.

Abdurahman Alamoudi was arrested for supporting terrorists and for money laundering which leads us right back to Libya and the Oil for Yellowcake money laundering operation, IE caught with $300,000 in cash on his way back from Libya.

Hmm...and as we FReepers all know, Abdurahman Alamoudi has some INTERESTING Connections to one Senator Chuck "Yes; I'm McStain's Muppet!" Hagel!

Gee, Chucky is conneted to the Holy Land Foundation, and so is Sami Al Arian...who just coincidentally, was just cleared of a whole bunch of Conspiracy charges!

Check This Thread, and also this; THE ROLE OF CHARITIES AND NGO’S IN THE FINANCING OF TERRORIST ACTIVITIES SUBCOMMITTEE ON INTERNATIONAL TRADE ^ | AUGUST 1, 2002, and also THIS mind-blowing record of Hagel's pro-Islamazi efforts.

And since Hagel is McStain's muppet, I believe this is all linked to "Keating 5" John!

HILLARY BLASTS GOP OVER TERROR-LINK CHARGE The New York Post October 29, 2000, Sunday

Copyright 2000 N.Y.P. Holdings, Inc. All rights reserved. The New York Post

October 29, 2000, Sunday

SECTION: All Editions; Pg. 005

LENGTH: 497 words

HEADLINE: HILLARY BLASTS GOP OVER TERROR-LINK CHARGE

BYLINE: GREGG BIRNBAUM in West Babylon, L.I. and ROBERT HARDT Jr. in Ithaca

BODY: Hillary Rodham Clinton said yesterday she was "outraged" the state GOP was making phone calls linking her with the bombing of the USS Cole and demanded rival Rick Lazio apologize to victims' families.

"I believe that the Republican Party and Congressman Lazio owe an apology to the families of the sailors who died in the terrorist bombing of the USS Cole," the Democratic Senate candidate said, blasting the GOP calls as "a new low."

Clinton was reacting to a report in The Post yesterday revealing the state Republican Party is making phone calls to over 500,000 undecided voters, telling them the first lady accepted money from an Arab organization that "openly brags about its support for a Mideast terrorism group, the same kind of terrorism that killed our sailors on the USS Cole."

Lazio made no apology and charged Clinton with trying to hide an Arab-American donation to her campaign. State Republican officials said the calls were appropriate - and will continue.

Seventeen sailors were killed two weeks ago in a terrorist bombing of the guided-missile cruiser Cole off the coast of Yemen.

Clinton joined her husband at the memorial service for the sailors in Norfolk, Va.

"To go beyond the pale, as they've done here, really deserves the condemnation of everybody: Republicans, Democrats, independents, anyone who cares about the quality of our political process," said Clinton, whose campaign also released a statement from war hero Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) ripping Lazio.

During a press conference on Long Island, Lazio asked in disbelief, "I should apologize?"

Lazio scoffed, "I don't think we need instructions from the Arkansas political machine that Mrs. Clinton affiliates with . . . on how to run New York campaigns."

"Especially people who were forced to return $50,000 to people who associate themselves with terrorism or violence in the Middle East," Lazio added, referring to a fund-raiser for Clinton that some charge was sponsored by the American Muslim Association.

The Republican Senate hopeful said the calls were not being made by his campaign and that there was no attempt by the GOP to conceal the fact the party was running the phone bank.

Republican Party spokesman Dan Allen defended the calls and said they would continue, along with other calls targeting Jewish voters.

Lazio also repeatedly refused to answer when asked if he believed Clinton supports terrorism, as the GOP phone message charges.

Lazio and Gov. Pataki, who made a campaign stop with the GOP hopeful, accused the first lady of trying to hide the affiliation of one of the Arab-American contributors to her campaign.

The $1,000 donation - since returned by Clinton - was from Abdurahman Alamoudi, of the American Muslim Council, but it was recorded on the first lady's publicly available campaign-finance report as the "American Museum Council."

"That's the real story," Lazio said.

The Clinton campaign said it was an innocent mistake.

I think in part you are correct about the "finger" pointing theme. Personally I do not like the term "neocons" as it diverts attention away from the whole picture, and quite frankly some of the self appointed within the "neocons" seem themselves to have become distracted from the purpose of removing Saddam.

What event triggered Bill Kristol and John McCain's campaign to oust Rummy from Department of Defense remains a mystery to me. I would not be a bit surprised to see Rockefeller and the neocons meet in theme and agenda.
