Peddling Peril, Peddling Lies

David Albright, President of the Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS), has a new book out (which I haven't read) about AQ Khan and the nuclear black market called Peddling Peril: How the Secret Nuclear Trade Arms America's Enemies.

Remarkably, one of the sources for the book was former #3 at the State Department Marc Grossman.
Grossman was named, under oath, by former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds as a key participant in the nuclear black market. You can read the gory details over at Boiling Frogs Post, but basically Grossman:
1. Arranged visas and security clearances for nuclear labs like Sandia and Los Alamos
2. Facilitated blackmail of American officials with access to various secrets
3. Outed Brewster Jennings in 2001, two years before Robert Novak wrote his infamous article.

Why is Albright using Grossman as a source? Why isn't Grossman facing criminal charges?
