Our friends at the BBC got the story. The Brits, the FBI and the Russian FSB are not amused. Hope they find the rat and put him away for life.

Now it all makes sense! Why hasn't this been publicized? Do you know this explanation to be true, or are you assuming?

Then why would the Russians go along with this 'venture'. Aren't they against the war etc. Why would they cooperate in this 'stunt' (which it seems like you're calling this) to help keep up Bush's poll numbers?

They would benefit from our help or looking the other way on Chechnya. They opposed the Iraq war because Saddam was a client who owed them money and because a new Iraqi government may not honor their oil contracts.

Newsweek ^ | 8/14/03 | Michael Isikoff & Mark Hosenball News Leak Blows Big Opportunity Newsweek Web Exclusive While publicly congratulating themselves over the bust of an international arms dealer in an alleged plot to sell Russian-made surface-to-air missiles, top Justice Department officials are privately fuming over a premature news leak that may have blown a rare opportunity to penetrate Al Qaeda's arms-buying network, NEWSWEEK has learned . . .

Liz posted a great article here:

INSIDE THE PLOT TO SELL A MISSILE (serial numbers on dollar bills key to prosecution) ^

The Fifth Avenue jeweler is an Afghani. Yehuda Abraham was caught with a dollar bill with the serial number Lakhani had given an FBI informer.

Yehuda Abraham was awared bail. I guess the Feds don't consider him as much of threat as the others. Bad news for Jewhaters, eh?
