In the back of my mind, I've been wondering about this sentence from that article: "Karni then contacted Zeki Bilmen, head of Giza Technologies of Secaucus, N.J."
(her emphasis) - in particular, i wonderered whether she intentionally, or accidentally underlined the location - and if it was intentional, what it might mean.
Incidentally, Chris Deliso's article says:
"Further, she adds, "the Brewster Jennings network was very active in Turkey and with the Turkish community in the U.S. during the late 1990s, 2000, and 2001 … in places like Chicago, Boston, and Paterson, N.J.""That "Paterson" reference is quite specific. Who is she talking about? It turns out that Paterson is just 10 miles from Secaucus (link).
Incidentally, I stumbled across another story today about a fascinating FBI operation from June 01 called Operation Diamondback- a $30m sting operation that involved Bin Laden, heroin, the ISI, nuclear components - not least that Michael Chertoff was apparently nefariously involved - and a whole bunch of other fascinating stuff.
"Federal agents involved in the case later express puzzlement that Washington higher-ups did not make the case a higher priority, pointing out that bin Laden could have gotten a nuclear bomb if the deal was for real. Agents on the case complain that the FBI did not make the case a counterterrorism matter, which would have improved bureaucratic backing and opened access to FBI information and US intelligence from around the world."Incidentally, in August 01, the informant in Operation Diamondback, Randy Glass, told Senators Bob Graham and Wexlor that the WTC was about to be attacked. On 911, Graham was hanging out with ISI's Mahmood (who had recently given Atta $100k), and Porter Goss. (Graham went on to co-chair 911comm)
It turns out the sting was in Jersey City, just 3 miles from Secaucus.
Are these 3 references to the same geographic region related? What was Sibel talking about when she mentioned Paterson, N.J.?
