Effort to save Libby by discrediting Plame and Wilson continues

(WMR) -- The discredited story about a "Jean Edwards," a Washington, DC, lawyer and purported resident of Jamaica, who listed "Brewster-Jenning and Associates" [sic] as her employer from 1985 to 1989 on an on-line resume posted on the Akerman Senterfitt law firm's web site, is once again being circulated on the Internet.

The story about Edwards and her attendance at various nuclear technology conferences after she supposedly left Brewster Jennings in 1989 and became a "CIA Case Officer," also listed on her resume, was circulated by a Carolyn Kuhn during last March's America Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference in Washington, DC.

At the same time, another phony story was circulated that a "Robert Ellman" also listed Brewster Jennings as his employer on his online resume.

The salting of "Brewster Jennings" in the two online resumes was such a sloppy disinformation campaign, Edwards' resume had the firm listed as "Brewster-Jenning." Misspellings are common indicators of online forgeries since the programmer perpetrators of such computer hacks are often poor English-speakers from Russia, Ukraine, and Eastern Europe.

Kuhn's now discredited story was an attempt to show that Brewster Jennings & Associates was a well known operation.

The story and the forgery of the resumes was an attempt to clear Scooter Libby of any wrongdoing while his major financial backers met at the AIPAC meeting in Washington to set up his defense fund. The fake Brewster Jennings resume stories were an attempt to garner sympathy for Libby and another attempt to smear Valerie Plame Wilson and her husband, Joseph Wilson.

Some of those involved with the fake resume story were also associated with the fake Niger documents that helped propagandize the public and media for the attack on Iraq.

The reappearance of the fake resume story just after the announcement last week of the Wilsons' lawsuit against Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, Scooter Libby, and ten unnamed "John Does," is no coincidence.

WMR's CIA sources have stated that Brewster Jennings & Associates was not active in the 1980s but was activated in the early 1990s to deal with the proliferation of nuclear weapons after the collapse of the Soviet Union.
