I was following the gag order on whistleblower Sibel Edmonds 3 to 4 years ago rather closely and just gave up because the powers that be have their hands in everything and there is too much money to be made from drugs and weapons trafficking that I was overwhelmed by the fact that a mafia-like crime organization was in charge of everything that was wrong with the world including our government. There was just no way that she would be heard because it seemed that everyone had their hand in the drug/weapons industry. She was the Farsi (Turkish) translator who was hired by the FBI after 9/11 who discovered too much and the FBI wanted her to just overlook it. She appeared on 60 minutes in January of 2002 and was then fired by the FBI. A Washington judge order her silenced. The DOJ classified everything she said. Congress didn't want to hear about it (especially Hastert and you'll see why soon) and her testimony to the 9/11 Commission wasn't even in the report. You have the makings here of the biggest coverup in history as I reported 3 years ago and it goes deeper and deeper.
While I was busy trying to connect the dots, I missed a few but blogger, lukery has done a bang up job connecting them (and more at his blog). What's more, with Hastert out of the way, we can get this case opened again if you'd just make a few phone calls. Please call the offices of Congressmen Waxman - (202) 225-3976 (ask for Michelle Ash & David Rapallo) - and Conyers - (202) 225-5126 (ask for Elliot Mintzberg) - demanding open hearings into Sibel Edmonds' case and the State Secrets Privilege.
In short according to lukery in the comments:
Turkey is run by drug-dealing, terrorism-loving, arms dealing crooks
those crooks have enough money that they can 'buy' anyone
those crooks use the ATC as their front organization
the US establishment loves the ATC because it pays well.
we are all less safe as a result.
Edmonds stumbled upon the who's who of arms and drug (heroin) trafficking. You've got the American Turkish Council (ATC), AIPAC, the neocons: Richard Perle, Douglas Feith, Paul Wolfowitz, Marc Grossman, Eric Edelman, and Stephen Solarz... Dennis Hastert was involved and as a result, America's elite are making out nicely. ATC and AIPAC own our government.
You might as well start here What the heck is Sibel Edmonds' Case about? And why should I care? and then follow the links. It's important to let Sibel Edmonds speak once and for all. Maybe there are some honest people in Congress or somewhere in DC.
