Sibel Edmonds speaks to the UK Sunday Times

This is a MUST READ! (Especially the article in the UK Sunday Times)

Former ‘Gagged’ FBI Whistleblower Alleges Pentagon, State Department Officials Overheard Receiving Payoffs in Exchange for Classified Info; Crimes Covered Up at Highest Levels of Government.

Sibel Edmonds, the former FBI translator who has been under a Bush administration gag order for the past 5 years, has now begun to disclose some of the classified information she has been prohibited from revealing.

“A WHISTLEBLOWER has made a series of extraordinary claims about how corrupt government officials allowed Pakistan and other states to steal nuclear weapons secrets,” reports Great Britain’s Sunday Times in the lead of their front page exclusive, headlined:

For sale: West’s deadly nuclear secrets

In the article, just filed tonight, Edmonds reveals details overheard on wiretaps she translated during her time at the FBI, just after 9/11. Her disclosures to the Times reveal a maze of nuclear black market espionage involving U.S. Defense and State Department officials, that resulted in the sale and propagation of nuclear secrets to Turkish and Israeli interests. In turn, that information was then sold to Pakistan and used by A.Q. Kahn for development of nuclear weapons. The secrets were subsequently proliferated to Iran, Libya, North Korea, and potentially al-Qaeda’s Osama bin Laden, just weeks prior to September 11th, 2001.

This must be pretty threatening to some very high up people if our Congress continues to address this and allow her to testify. The worst part of all, this directly affects the national security of this entire nation. To me, this represents the greatest threat to our national security. There are traitors working freely in our government, and our leaders won’t do anything about it.

This would be a good thing to ask the presidential candidates about. Feels like its time to start writing some more letters..

  1. Muse I had thrown up a quick post on this should we take mine down since your’s is so much more in depth?

  2. I’m not at all surprised. Governments can’t be trusted. Those in power all think like Neanderthals.

  3. She was able to discuss the case with The Sunday Times because, by the end of January 2002, the justice department had shut down the programme. from Times article.

    When the programme shut down, it was already too late. The horse was out of the barn so to speak and Turkey probably still has copies for sale. I believe Libya dropped it’s nuclear program because of insufficient funds.

  4. For now, it looks like people like us are going to have to help spread her story. Perhaps we could write LTEs to our local papers asking them why they won’t cover Sibel Edmonds’ story. (And if they do, they must print what she is saying, not simply that she got in trouble for accusing a co-worker of doing something illegal. Turns out an investigation showed her complaints were proper.)

    As for the senior State Dept official alleged to be involved in all this, this is what he had to say:
    “If you are calling me to say somebody said that I took money, that’s outrageous . . . I do not have anything to say about such stupid ridiculous things as this.”
    I understand that the ellipsis means words were taken out of that quote (I hate when they do that), but that sounded to me like the classic “non-denial denial”. He didn’t deny it, just called the charge “outrageous”, “stupid” and “ridiculous”, but he did not say they were false. One of the tactics used by guilty people rightly accused of wrong-doing is to claim the charges are outrageous (or other terms). This does not mean, of course, that every time someone calls the charges “outrageous”, it’s because they’re true. It just shows that the denial means nothing. (It may also be that the charges are technically incorrect but correct in spirit. (Maybe he didn’t keep the money for himself, so it wasn’t “he” that took money but our government. That’s the kind of semantic gymnastics that keeps the truth hidden for several more years. People will hear things in that “denial” that weren’t actually said.)

    I’ve gone on long enough. Thank you. And great post, muse. (And thanks to Shayne, too, for your addition to this story.)

  5. The “continue reading” link wasn’t working for me. I looked at it in the editor and there was a redundant “http” which I removed. It’s working now.

  6. Absolutely stunning. Edmonds has met with and told Congress what she knows, and nothing is being done. A traitor (Grossman, allegedly) lives free, and yet Edmonds has to be worried about going to prison for telling the truth.

    And the Corporate SCLM won’t touch her with a ten foot pole.

    Thanks for keeping up with this, muse.
