PNAC Russia Plagiarism Files Sibel Edmonds

January 7, 2008

PNAC may have used information about Russia using academic kompromat to gain IMF loans in the 1990’s to get the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998. There may be overlap between this group and the Sibel Edmonds matters, Jack Abramoff Case, the USAO Mass investigation of Harvard econ dept, US v. Harvard, Shleifer, and Hay, as well as older uses by Russia of these methods tracing back to Los Alamos and relating to the Klaus Fuchs case and even the Rosenberg Spy case which linked to Fuchs through Harry Gold.


PNAC may have known this from Paul Wolfowitz who may have learned of historic cases from his father Jacob Wolfowitz and also from Libby a close associate of Paul Wolfowitz and Marc Rich’s lawyer. Rich may have known it from his Russian contacts as Russia was doing it in the 1990’s. Rich may have given info to Israel on this to get help in his pardon.

Re Larisa Alexandrovna on Sibel Edmonds

January 7, 2008

That the Times ran these allegations (she is under a state secrets gag folks, so it is not like she is gagged for lying) is encouraging. But that they omitted all names from the allegations is unethical. The point of a free press is not to protect the powerful against the weak, but to protect the public from the powerful. The Times was willing to stick a toe in, but was not willing to risk upsetting a foreign government (This is, after all, a British paper).

The British may be involved through oligarchs Boris Berezovsky and Roman Abramovich and because the academic kompromat link to atomic espionage started in the UK in 1925 with the Dirac Fowler plagiarism of Max Born later used by Kapitza and the Soviets in 1944 to try to pressure the British (unsuccessfully) to give the bomb secret to Russia.  This may then have been used along with other cases to pressure IMF loans from Stanley Fischer and Larry Summers in the 1990’s.

See the following for how these may be linked to the Sibel Edmonds case:

Video of her with part of her story and FBI agents saying its true.

Justin Raimondo at Antiwar

London Times article with her story.

They were helped, she says, by the high-ranking State Department official who provided some of their moles – mainly PhD students – with security clearance to work in sensitive nuclear research facilities. These included the Los Alamos nuclear laboratory in New Mexico, which is responsible for the security of the US nuclear deterrent.

At the same time, Russia was getting billions in low interest rate IMF loans. They may have had embarrassing information on the econ profs from Harvard and MIT in control of the money. This includes Larry Summers and Stanley Fischer.

Russia got 20 billion in IMF loans in the 1990’s from Clinton econ profs. At the same time, DOJ investigated Harvard econ profs including Shleifer. This lasted from 1997 to 2005 and was settled in 2005 by Harvard and Shleifer. Information may have been concealed and that used by Russia to get more IMF loans in 1998. Bush profs may have known this starting in 1998.

Other countries knew of this method, Russia started it in publications in 1937. China, India, Pakistan, Israel and likely Turkey knew of this history. The IMF was a center of intrigue in the 1990’s. The neocons knew this. They may have used this to get Clinton to sign the Iraq Liberation Act in 1998 during the Clinton impeachment hearings and during the ongoing USAO Mass investigation of Harvard and Clinton econ profs.

Bush and the neocons may have used this as leverage during Bush v. Gore because Gore was linked to Summers and Russia. John Yoo may have told this to Scalia during the case and possibly to Senator Hatch. The two cases may have become intertwined as sources of leverage. All 3 branches of government are involved in the academic kompromat case because law professors are close to econ profs. This includes through Antitrust Division of DOJ and antitrust law and econ profs.

Antitrust cases and matters in the 1990’s and 2000’s are also linked to the same people. This includes US v. Microsoft where the expert witnesses on both sides and the Antitrust Division econ profs, DAAGs, were linked to MIT in 1969 where the plagiarism by Stanley Fischer and Paul Samuelson may have happened against victims Nils Hakansson now at Berkeley.

Russia may have used this incident and prior ones to pressure nominations for the Nobel Prize in economics from Samuelson and Arrow, uncles of Larry Summers in the 1970’s at econ conferences in Warsaw in 1972 and 1974.

This was a continuation of the same methods used in physics as part of Russia’s gaining atomic know-how starting in the 1940’s. Russia was using this pressure on Niels Bohr in 1944 and the British government knew of it then. See the above link for information on this.

Pakistan learned of this history in physics from Abdul Salam and MAB Beg possibly. Turkey from A. O. Barut possibly. In economics, Shaukat Aziz and possibly Moeen Qureshi (in the US) could have learned of this and used it for Pakistan’s debt refinancing after 9-11. Aziz came from Citigroup where Stanley Fischer and Robert Rubin went after Clinton.

LTCM traded Russian government bonds using the above information is a possibility in 1998. Robert Merton also part of the MIT 1969 group plagiarizing Hakansson,was part of LTCM and Harvard Business School during the whole series of events. Samuelson and Merton got NSF grants in 1969 and Stanley Fischer his US citizenship. But Russia may have also used the history of physics and the atom bomb to pressure Nobel Prize nominations for Kantorovich in econ in the 1970’s. He won in 1975. This was key to the Soviet Union because it was founded on an economic theory. They felt they had to win a Nobel Prize to prove communism worked in theory, especially because the Russian people knew it didn’t in practice.

The Soviets used all they could in terms of academic kompromat to get those nominations in the 1970’s. But under US law that creates a question whether by nominating Kantorovich in the 1970’s the US econ profs became co-conspirators or accessories after the fact to atomic espionage.

That is just a legal issue not an assertion. But the Russians could use that uncertainty in the 1990’s to pressure Larry Summers who couldn’t know what a court would rule. Nor could Stanley Fischer who was also involved and at IMF in charge of loans to Russia.

The use of plagiarism to pressure atomic scientists by Russia started in the 1940’s. Klaus Fuchs was an assistant to plagiarism victim Max Born. Born was Oppenheimer’s dissertation supervisor just after Born was plagiarized by Dirac in England. Rutherford was the father in law of Fowler who supervised Dirac and was doing the plagiarism as revenge in part for the Germans shooting him in World War I.

The Rockefeller Foundation was giving grants to Niels Bohr for Heisenberg and Jordan, the latter one of the victims of the Dirac Fowler plagiarism, to work at the Bohr Institute. Rutherford made Bohr a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1926, the year after the 1925 plagiarism of a major paper in quantum mechanics. The Russians had Kapitza at Rutherford’s Lab. He knew this.

Stalin brought Kapitza back to the Soviet Union c. 1934 and Kapitza was used to write two letters to Bohr, one in 1944 and the other in 1945. These embarrassed Bohr. In the first case, the letter was to the Soviet embassy in London and Bohr showed it to the British. Churchill’s scientific adviser had already been a Fellow of the Royal Society in the 1920’s and knew the story and told Churchill who then threatened Bohr with prison because Bohr was telling Churchill and FDR to give the bomb secret to the Soviets. Churchill called FDR who then lost interest in Bohr, likely after Churchill told FDR the leverage the Soviets had on Bohr.

The Jack Abramoff case is linked to the IMF loans and Russian kompromat. Abramoff helped Russia in the 1990’s get the US House to give money to the IMF. Then Russia used the academic kompromat to move the money from IMF to Russia.

Bush senior went to Moscow and gave a talk that Goldman Sachs paid him 100,000 to give in 1997 or 1998 while this was going on. That was to paint a picture of Bush family involvement. That gave them leverage over Bush junior when Bush became president. GS had econ and finance profs who knew about this history and itself was trading Russian government bonds for clients during the 1997 and 1998 period. Robert Rubin at Treasury was from GS. Bush has hired others from GS since then.

GS was part of the LTCM bailout. Jon Corzine spoke at Fischer Black’s funeral at Harvard the year before Merton and Scholes won the Nobel Prize in economics for the option pricing formula. But that formula too was based on prior work that was not properly being acknowledged. (And there was more in econ including other Nobel Prizes in econ (and physics) linked into the story.)

If the Russians didn’t get the second leg of the trip done, getting the US House to approve the funds for the IMF wouldn’t help, i.e. if the money didn’t go to Russia. So Russia may have used old academic kompromat files to get Summers and Fischer to move the money to Russia.

This was during the investigation by USAO Mass of Harvard. At the same time, LTCM knew this and bought Russian government bonds.

But the Russians instead took the IMF dollars, sold them to Russian oligarchs for rubles, devalued the ruble by defaulting, and then repaid the ruble loans they took out to buy the IMF dollars at a lower value. This let them capture the final 4.8 billion dollar IMF loan in 1998 but still look on the books that Russia used the IMF loan to buy rubles to support the ruble.

In fact they did, but they bought them from oligarchs in on the scheme who knew the ruble would be devalued by Russia defaulting on its bonds. LTCM owned Russian bonds that were registered. Russia knew that LTCM or Bear Stearns was holding the bonds and knew Bear was the back office for LTCM. So Russia knew by defaulting on the bonds it was keeping the econ profs at LTCM from making money on their own crimes. This was an extra sweetener for the Russians.

Neocon profs like Paul Wolfowitz knew this. Jacob Wolfowitz, Paul’s father knew of the history up to 1981 when Jacob died. Paul got his Ph.D. c. 1970 and Jacob would have warned Paul not to plagiarize because Russia uses it to blackmail profs. So Paul would have known the story. John Yoo may have learned it at Berkeley from a law prof who got an econ Ph.D./J.D. and clerked with Yoo at the Supreme Court in the 1990’s. That contact may then have been used for Yoo to pass the info to Scalia during Bush v. Gore that Summers and the Clinton clan were holding out this info from the USAO Mass investigation of Harvard Econ Dept and its role in Russia with a grant.

Pakistan was in a position to know this, as was Turkey. So they could have used that as leverage as well in the 1990’s and by guessing that the Bush profs used it also have used it after 9-11 to pressure Bush to keep quiet about Pakistan’s role in 9-11. The Saudis are on the board at IMF and also may have learned of this from friendly Arab and Muslim profs in the US and Europe in econ and physics.


They were helped, she says, by the high-ranking State Department official who provided some of their moles – mainly PhD students – with security clearance to work in sensitive nuclear research facilities. These included the Los Alamos nuclear laboratory in New Mexico, which is responsible for the security of the US nuclear deterrent.

Los Alamos was involved in the coverup of academic kompromat from the 1940’s onwards. Klaus Fuchs got into Los Alamos in part because he worked for Max Born. Hans Bethe was the boss of Fuchs and reported to Oppenheimer. Bethe and Fuchs were both refugees at Bristol in the 1930’s from Hitler. Fuchs was a Lutheran which meant to be a refugee he was a communist. But Max Born was likely known to be a communist by the profs. Born had two communist Chinese students in the 1940’s who left the UK for China after Fuchs was arrested c. Jan 1950. They then became part of China’s heroes of science, including the bomb and rocketry. Kun Huang was one and Huanwu Peng the other. Peng’s son came to the US in the 1980’s and got a Ph.D. in physics at Carnegie Mellon.

Bethe couldn’t say Fuchs is a communist without people asking about Max Born. That would mean asking about Oppenheimer since Oppenheimer was a former assistant to Born as was Fuchs. So Bethe kept quiet. But the Soviets used that and tweaked them all in a 1947 Fock Letter about Corson. Corson was the friend of Fuchs who plagiarized Fock knowing this history. He thought the Soviets would keep quiet, but instead they published a letter denouncing the plagiarism.

This history was concealed from the FBI most likely by Los Alamos and the universities when Fuchs was exposed as a spy in 1950 and in the Oppenheimer Security Clearance case in 1954. Thus Los Alamos and the universities were still covering up the same cases in the 1990’s. Hans Bethe and Edward Teller were still alive. Bethe may have stopped Teller from telling this at the Oppenheimer Security Clearance case the day before Teller testified when they had an argument but we don’t know about what.

So this was all available as leverage in the 1990’s and 2000’s. By then China, India, Pakistan, Turkey, Israel and others had put together the whole story. This then lets these countries build Ph.D. student networks at US labs and universities because the profs are still covering up atomic espionage methods Russia used from the 1940’s onwards.

==Antitrust Division of DOJ and Econ profs

Econ profs recommend econ Ph.D. students to DOJ Antitrust Division to get jobs. But the head of the Ph.D.’s at DOJ is always an econ prof as a Deputy Assistant Attorney General, DAAG. They serve 1 to 2 years and then go back to their academic job. Econ Ph.D.’s at DOJ are promoted by the econ prof DAAG at the time. Thus their entire career is controlled by the econ profs.

Daniel Rubinfeld was Paul Samuelson’s research assistant c. 1971 after Robert Merton. He was at MIT in 1969 as was Laura Tyson. The DOJ Antitrust Division should have told the FBI in the 1990’s and told the USAO Mass investigating Harvard econ dept on their Russia activities about this history. But they likely different. This gave all the players leverage over DOJ.

John Yoo became a DAAG at DOJ, possibly as a reward for telling this to Scalia to influence Scalia to stop the vote counting in Florida. Thus DOJ was already implicated at high levels in the coverup. This is why they can’t investigate anyone in much detail. They may have prosecuted Libby for the Marc Rich pardon and Libby’s involvement in this.

The Swiss banks had profs in Switzerland who were aware of at least some of this in the 1990’s during the Holocaust Bank deposit scandal. The US DOJ was pushing that investigation. But at the same time the Swiss profs knew that econ profs at DOJ were concealing this info.

Marc Rich may have learned this from Swiss profs or Russian contacts. He may have passed info on this to Israel to get help with his pardon not the cover story. Libby was Marc Rich’s lawyer. They may have pooled info and Libby may have used this during Bush v. Gore as leverage over Gore and Clinton to give up after the Supreme Court went against them. The Marc Rich pardon may have been part of this.

Laura Tyson and Daniel Rubinfeld were from Berkeley where the victim of the 1969 plagiarism was still a prof.  Paul Samuelson was Larry Summer’s uncle.  So Larry Summers was under this pressure from Russia.  The other econ profs in government knew this.  Treasury, Federal Reserve, DOJ, Federal Trade Commission (also has econ profs), Council of Economic Advisers, and federal judges from law and economics backgrounds or antitrust knew this.

Joel F. Brenner was an antitrust trial lawyer in DOJ in early 200’s.  He was made the Inspector General for NSA.  Now he is head of US counter-intelligence.  He has a Ph.D. from LSE, but not in econ, and a J.D. from Harvard.  Yet as an antitrust lawyer he ends up as head of US counter-intelligence.  Why?

Law schools linked up with econ profs decades ago in the law and economics movement.  They became linked at the hip.  Federal judges are often law profs.  Many of them are antitrust profs.  They have become linked into this history.  This is where the real ability to shut this comes down.  The House and Senate Judiciary committees are linked in with the law profs and law schools.  John Yoo was chief legal counsel for

Senator Hatch at Senate Judiciary in the 1990’s as well as a clerk for Thomas and then returned to Berkeley law school.  This is where the ability to shut down the investigations comes in part.  All 3 branches are involved in the coverup. The federal judges are protecting law and econ profs, many of them famous and some with Nobel Prizes in econ.

Federal sentencing law is extreme and harsh.  The federal judges and the DOJ leadership leadership can’t imagine their friends and mentors going to prison for long terms.  No one knows what would happen.  There is so much legal ambiguity and no one trusts the system to be merciful or wise so they all just cover it up. There is a lock down on information for this reason.
