Who’s Afraid of Sibel Edmonds? Interview in the American Conservative

Sibel Edmonds has been interviewed by former CIA Officer Philip Giraldi for the American Conservative. Edmonds, who has been twice gagged under the State Secrets Act by Ashcroft and called ‘credible’ by Sens. Leahy and Grassley, and DOJ IG Fine, alleges members of Congress, top Defense and State Dept officials, and RAND employees have colluded with Turkish, Israeli, Pakistani and Saudi agents. Crimes, many of which amount to treason, include espionage, blackmail, bribery, trading political favors, laundering money, trafficking in drugs, arms and nuclear secrets and weapons technology. Edmonds also says there were pre-9/11 discussions with Turkish officials on invading and dividing up Iraq, and that the CIA was aiding and abetting ‘bin Ladens’ and Mujahideen (now called Al Qaeda) right up to 9/11.

However, Edmonds has previously disclosed that the corruption involving U.S. officials also includes money laundering, trafficking in drugs, arms and nuclear secrets, U.S. support for Bin Laden/Al Qaeda, and obstruction of FBI investigations related to 9/11, before and after the attacks; she said these things came up “briefly” during the deposition. Edmonds learned of these things from wiretaps she listened to while working as a translator for the FBI in 2001-2002.
