"One intelligence source says the Office of Special Plans’ off-book team was using Speicher and WMD as a pretext for whatever their real objective may have been."This is around the same time that Brewster Jennings was outed. Is it possible that the two events are related? It's always been a mystery why the maladministration didnt plant WMD's in Iraq - is it possible that they were planning to smuggle some in through Turkey and BrewsterJennings learnt about the scheme? If so, did BJ specifically learn that the neocons were involved? or did BJ only learn the transaction and trafficking details?
Remember, Sibel points specifically to Feith and his role (with Perle) in 'lobbying' for Turkey, and specifically points to Feith as the bridge between plamegate and sibelgate - and, of course, Edelman was pulled out of Turkey and put directly into Feith's position.
I've been hoping that Larisa would break a story about BJ - she's chosen an odd entree piece to tiptoe into the waters. Let's hope there's some more from her. and soon.
update: just as a speculaative aside, wouldn't it weird if journo's knew this story all the time, and this is why they've kept their mouth shut?
correction: pincus actually says: "I didn’t write about that information at that time because I did not believe it true that she had arranged his Niger trip."
