Raw Story Investigation: Pentagon Domestic Propaganda

April 20, 2008 The New York Times broke the news that the Pentagon (and members of the Bush Administration) had been coordinating with retired military analysts on talking points to cover in their media appearances, as part of a ‘psyop’ on the American public to sell the ‘post-9/11 world’, the ‘War on Terror’, Guantanamo, torture, and the continued occupation of Iraq. These ‘analysts’, many of whom had undisclosed conflicts of interest such as financial ties to defense contractors, appeared over 4500 times in the media, as part of this campaign. The media outlets responsible for participating in the program- which includes the NY Times- have generally not acknowledged any fault on their own part, and some commentators attempted to spin the psyop as simply the Pentagon telling their side of things. A DOD Inspector General investigation found no wrong doing on the part of the Pentagon, but that report was later found to be so flawed, it was retracted and removed from the DOD’s website. More recently, RawStory.com has published the results of its own investigation into the program, which has uncovered further evidence, as well as indications that the Pentagon’s efforts to manipulate public opinion are continuing under the Obama Administration.

Sibel Edmonds and John Cole- Oct 23, 2009 Interview by Scott Horton

Oct 23, 2009 FBI whistleblowers Sibel Edmonds and John Cole were interviewed by Scott Horton for AntiWar Radio. This post preserves the transcript, with links to the original and the audio.

These networks involved members of Congress and State and DOD officials, and their counterparts in Israel, Pakistan, Turkey and Saudi Arabia.

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.

Bradblog Breaks Down Sibel Edmonds’ Bombshell Deposition

August 8, 2009 Sibel Edmonds gave 4 hours of testimony, naming members of Congress, and State and Defense Dept officials as being complicit in treason, trafficking in arms and nuclear secrets, money laundering, bribery, blackmail, obstruction of justice, cover up and more. The 4 hours of video and well over 200 pages of transcript are a lot to wade through, but Brad Friedman is taking the time to pull out some of the devastating details, that so far no ‘mainstream’ media, and only a few alt/indy media, have seen fit to report on, and no member of Congress or US government official has commented on…

Sibel Edmonds Deposition: Deep Corruption Beneath the Surface

Aug 8, 2009, Sibel Edmonds gave a sworn deposition in which she testified to her knowledge of treasonous crimes and corruption involving current and former members of Congress and State and Defense Dept. officials. Given the nature of the deposition, the lines of questioning focused on Turkish espionage and services obtained through bribery and blackmail by Turkish officials and proxies. 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.
