Sibel Edmonds Truth

by Lasthorseman Wed Jan 9th, 2008 at 07:22:19 PM EST

Just starting to surface on the internet are excerpts from Sible Edmonds.
The corruption is as vast as the collective imagination of Satanic souls.
Nuclear proliferation, prostitution, arms trading all rolled up in one.

I am left in a state of rapturous joy at the prospect of real news after the "coverage"(insane talking bobbleheads) of the NH primary.

I understand that there has been almost no coverage of Sibel in the US press. I think that theory is, "If a tree falls in the forest and there is no one to hear".

I think you should be following the Brad Blog as well for some information on Sibel Edmonds.

The US press is more controlled than Pravda.  It surpasses the wildest dreams of Herman Goebells.  People in NH are already asking why their votes were not counted.

I actually don't care if it's true or not, I want it to be a household word in the US like "rendition" is.

i regret not nuancing my agreement with the quote in this comment, but it does explain one of the ways she has been marginalized in the U.S. press.

This is dazzling.

The Bomb in the Shadows: Proliferation, Corruption and the Way of the World. ... (Vote, Report, Down, January, Abuse)-Chris Floyd - Empire Burlesque - High Crimes and Low Comedy in the Bush Imperium

This week, the Sunday Times lifted the lid on one of the most important stories of the last quarter-century: how American officials sold nuclear arms technology to illegal proliferators -- including ideological allies of al Qaeda -- in return for bribes and other inducements. This widespread corruption has been protected from exposure by the highest levels of the U.S. government, which has gone to enormous lengths to protect the truth from coming out. The entire planet has been put at grave risk by the greed -- and geopolitical gamesmanship -- that lies behind this criminal enterprise, which actually is even more extensive, and goes back further in time, than the newspaper's remarkable revelations.

The Sunday Times story is based on the evidence provided by former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds, who has been subjected to an unprecedented campaign of state-enforced muzzling by the Bush Administration since she first tried to speak out about the corrupt connections between American officials and foreign agents she discovered when reviewing transcripts associated with the 9/11 investigation. As even the leaders of the whitewashing 9/11 Commission themselves now admit, that investigation was deliberately sabotaged by the Bush Administration - in part to cover up the nuclear proliferation network that has directly or indirectly enriched so many in the American elite over the past decades - including the sitting president of the United States, George W. Bush.

I read Chris Floyd ardently, but hadn't seen this just yet.

It actually does make sense to me to explain a lacklustred approach to investigate some elements surrounding 9/11. Is 9/11 conspiracy thinking generating a smokescreen for the bigger scandal?

Holy crap is right.

But eversince I have heard about Sibel Edmonds' story, I knew she must be covering up something immense.  The sale of "nuclear secrets" by high level officials" the U.S. State department to Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence via Turkish operatives in the Turkish embassy in Washington D.C. fits perfectly the vague outline of her story that shimmered through her state secrets gag order.

Also - don't forget the destruction of the Brewster Jennings & Associates network which tracked WMD proliferation in those areas - aka the "Plame affair".

Yea, but nothing will happen. the very people who could do something about this are the very people implicated.

Kinda like Ollie North, the man was a traitor to the constitution and the people of the United States. thatcan never be said often enough : Oliver North was a traitor. But his treachery was useful to the elites who were also traitors, anybody who knew what he was up to, or who helped cover it up or agreed to buy his slence with a pardon, were traitors to the United states.

and this is the same. Punishment of the innocent, praise and honour to the guilty. Trebles all round..cheers.

Something doesn't smell right about this story. I've been following it slightly from the beginning and it just doesn't get any "traction".

I'm willing to buy the idea that there are those in government that want to suppress information, but similar scandals in the past have come out despite such attempts. The Pentagon Papers and the Iran-Contra affair are good examples.

In a country like the US there are still news outlets which would be happy to run with a scoop, they don't have to be very big ones either. A journalist like I.F. Stone was able to break some important stories during his heyday and he only put out a four page newsletter with a tiny circulation. So postulating a conspiracy that could cause all US media to clam up doesn't seem likely.

One reason that this story is not getting any play may be that those in the US who have looked into it find the information not credible. Perhaps they have other sources of information which contradict Edmonds, or perhaps they can't get any one to corroborate her claims. Whatever the reason there has to be one.

If the claims are true then getting supporting information from elsewhere would seem to be a priority if any more is going to come out of this affair.

This isn't the first time that a strange silence has come out of the US. I believe the Downing street memos would be another example.

As far as deciding that the story is not credible there are a couple of thoughts:

It has been deemed to be newsworthy in a number of other countries, and since when have the US press cared about the credible nature of a story?

I'm 26 miles north of Boston and I have just had to endure "coverage" of the NH primary.  I really can't describe how insane,retarded, evil it was.  I am actually going to have to meditate and spiritually cleanse over the weekend.

Our "news" is really controlled now by two corporations plus the heavy hand of Homeboy Security in this "post 911 world", and other such upchuck material.

Even if .00001 percent of what Sibel says is true I support all of it 100000 percent.  You may have to channel the dead though to confirm any of it.
