Whistle Blower in 9/11 Case Gets Some Support

I wrote previously about Sibel Edmonds a former FBI translator that was ordered to shut up after she appeared on 60 minutes on October 27, 2002. During the 9/11 commission hearings in March, Edmonds said "that the bureau had "real, specific" information relating to the Sept. 11 attacks before they happened." Her testimony to the 9/11 Commission was kept private.

In her review, Edmonds said the documents clearly showed that the Sept. 11 hijackers were in the country and plotting to use airplanes as missiles. The documents also included information relating to their financial activities. Edmonds said she could not comment in detail because she has been under a Justice Department gag order since October 2002.

Even those in congress sought to keep her quiet. Why? She testified before congress and they got mad at her. The Motley Rice law firm is representing the families of the 9/11 victims and wants Edmonds testimony.

I wrote on May 20th about the Justice Dept coverup. The Justice Department had retroactively classified information it gave to Congress nearly two years ago regarding Sibel Edmond's testimony. It's unheard of to Retroactively classify documents!

Edmonds is not allowed to testify in any case because the government quickly got Bush-appointed Judge Reggie B. Walton to attempt to permanently silence Sibel Edmonds.

Well now, the Project On Government Oversight , POGO, is suing Ashcroft and the DOJ because they can't oversee the DOJ's actions due to the retroactively classifying important documents which is unconstitutional and unlawful. This case will probably go before, you guessed it, Judge Reggie B. Walton.

POGO claims: "This information was presented by the FBI during two unclassified 2002 briefings held by the Senate Judiciary Committee and was referenced in letters from U.S. Senators Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont) and Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) to DOJ officials. The letters were posted on the senators' Web sites, but were removed after the DOJ reclassified the information. POGO has the letters and wants to post them on the Web to initiate public debate."

Until Sibel Edmond's testimony is revealed as the whistle-blower testimony needed to unveil the secrecy behind what really happened on 9/11, the 9/11 Commissions findings will not prove very much of anything. The few congressman who support Edmonds are being silenced. What's going on?

Why does John Ashcroft hate America?
