Waxman to Make Announcment Early Next Week on Sibel Edmonds

UPDATE: Lukery says that it is now too late to write, and that only phone calls can help at this point.

Lukery's newest essay about Sibel Edmonds contains alot of information, and is well worth the read. (Edmonds told Jon Gold that Lukery "is the best investigative journalist out there on this case, and has done a tremendous amount of work on it.")

In the essay, Lukery states:

Sibel has briefed [Waxman's] office in classified hearings - and it appears that he is going to make a decision (& announcement) early next week about whether he will hold separate hearings into her case.

Lukery also gives more specific contact information for Waxman and other relevant Congress critters (see below).

Please note that this is not a done deal ... it is not over until Waxman makes his announcement, and I invite every person who has not contacted Waxman to do so.

The powers-that-be within the Democratic party are going to put enormous pressure on Waxman to focus on "more important things" (that is, anything other than 9/11), and to ignore Sibel Edmonds.

Please also remember that -- from the perspective of congress people -- phone calls count the most, faxes and letters the second most, and emails almost not at all (since everyone knows that emails take the least time, and since it is difficult to separate spam from real emails).

Sibel Petition

I have her petition posted alongside #67.
It will certainly help if readers sigh it, and any/all of ther others posted on my site. They're easy to find, they're along the right column. The 9/11 Truth Movenement is spread over so many websites and blogs that it's difficult for our impact to ever be realized unless we sign a petiton and make our single little selves count on the tally.

Strength in Numbers?

signing the petition

won't help any more.

Sibel's petition (15,000 sigs) has already gone to congress.

only phone calls can help now - mon and tue


Thanks, and

welcome Lukery.

Waxman to the rescue?

"insist on accountability" = stamping, stammering, sniffing, and snorting.

"It's not our job to determine criminal culpability, but it is out job to determine what went wrong and insist on accountability," Waxman said as he opened hearings.

Please note that this is NOT over Waxman makes his announcement.

I just had a very pleasant conversation...

... with one of Congressmen Waxman's staffers.. (I've got to get better at grabbing names, forgive me)

After she fully acknowledged the flood of calls they have received about Sibel specifically, the intensity of the subject, the excitement of being involved in something of such magnitude... her inability to confirm one way or the other about plans and/or "announcements"... "you should stay tuned", was basically her summation.

I offered to arrange a screening of KTM for her and her fellow staffers... and "the fine Mr. Waxman" (the brown nose'r I can be...) if they are unaware of the amount of private citizen interest in the Sibel Edmonds saga.

I wish the best to all of us... "stay tuned".

Lukery on DKos??

DKos is an avowed enemy of 9/11 truth--YET he allows this story about Sibel, and none of the usual suspects on DKos have chimed in crying CONSPIRACY KOOKS!


Look at this exchange from the dkos comments:

sibel appears to have a different definition (0 / 0)
sibel appears to have a different definition of 'al-qaeda' than is generally accepted (and she appears to switch between the 'standard' definition, and her own definition)

at one level, the turkish generals outsource some of their heroin distribution tasks to 'al-qaeda'

further, it appears that Perle and Feith funnel arms to groups like the KLA and the chechyan rebels (both of which appear to have close links to 'al-qaeda')

Big Question: Does The Money Filter to Bin Laden (1+ / 0-)
Recommended by:lukery
...at some point? If it eventually makes its way into accounts controlled by Bin Laden, how we define 'al Qaeda' becomes less important.

i think sibel makes it quite clear (0 / 0)
that the answer to your question is a categoric "yes"

even worse, (and i'm speculating a little here) it even appears that perhaps bin laden was actually laundering money for people higher-up in the network.

and separately, sibel says that the nuclear secrets and wmd that were stolen from the US nuclear labs (courtesy of the ATC and the State Dept) were sold to al-qaeda.

Bin Laden Laundering? (0 / 0)
I had always thought it was the other way around- that Turkish groups were laundering money for Bin Laden.

But if Bin Laden controls a bank in Cyprus, it would make sense he would be doing the laundering.

Bin Laden must be a financial genius, perhaps picked up from the BCCI days.

i'm not exactly clear (0 / 0)
but i think/speculate that these things might run in both directions.

SO, is the Sibel story being used by some to still try to link bin Laden to 9/11? This is one I'm going to watch with a very jaded eye, sorry...

"This is one I'm going to watch with a very jaded eye, sorry..."

You're not alone.

I have tried my darnedest to locate the switch-a-roo potentially laying in wait for us... but the physics of 911 stand alone completely uncaring about change-agents, blind allies, and manipulations of people and motives lead by their ill, mis and/or disinformation.

Sibel has made no bones about the 911 Commission being a complete fraud. The dynamics and role of Bin al Qaeda are yet to be unraveled... and I want to hear Sibel in an open public hearing... regardless.

I trust the truth-net will dissect each and every word her and her 70 some NSWBC have to say... in an open, un-SCIF-ed forum.

This is an interesting series of posts, and

we should definitely keep our eyes open. Could it be that Edmonds is not disputing that Al-Qaeda is a CIA front, but that she is saying that money was laundered back and forth between U.S. people and institutions, the Turkish group and AIPAC, and Al-CIA-duh, as a front?

In other words, even fronts and patsies need money to operate.

Something more like that...

... rather than a redirect back to the scary scary boo'sville of swarthy freedom haters out to get us all! Sibel doesn't strike me as the type... and she won't get three inches back into that meme before the truth-net calls her on it.

I'll be the first to turn on her if I smell such a plot twist.

Until then, she gets all my love that her hubby will allow from a stranger.


I suppose

don't get me wrong--I've been on the Sibel bandwagon from the beginning, and my site has included a link to her story from its inception. but given how the story just went nowhere for so long, and NOW that we're making huge strides it's trying to edge into the limelight I'm going to be watching closely. Her claims notwithstanding 9/11 are serious if true. What I wonder is if they will reveal some genuine shady biz going on, but use it to actually support the OCT in some way.

Like Erin said, what Sibel has to say will not change the impossible physics of the OCT. I used to talk about Sibel using the initials TIPS or SPIT, saudi pakistan israel and turkey, because it seems that shenanigans she talks about involve all of the above. While her testimony could be useful, it'll have to be a wait and see... while she could well expose an important conspiracy, it may not be exactly the one we're looking at--then again it may. We'll see! Caveat Veritor! (let the truther beware)

I don't think Mme Edmonds testifying can be a bad thing

It's just part of a mountain of damning evidence. The "impossible physics" of 9-11 are pretty much obvious to any honest scientist who studies them.

The most important thing now is to keep this flow of damning scandals coming, and it will contribute to an overwhelming movement for impeachment, as even some Repubs have speculated. If the House can pass an impeachment measure with a decent margin, it will put enormous pressure on the Senate to act, especially given continuing scandals, war protests, hearings, subpoenas, etc.

I think the climate is finally ripe for the "truth" about 9-11 to emerge in a much larger context of scandal and malfeaseance. Many of us just happened to awaken due to 9-11, but the causality is much bigger. The more damning evidence emerges about any scandals (Plame, Walter Reed, Gonzales as the most recent) the more people will be able to accept "the unthinkable."

Reality got you down? Read the La Rochelle Times: http://www.rochelletimes.blogspot.com

good points.

the reps are basically in charge of flakcatching and the senate only deals with shit they can't... words to live by!

More scandals, properly vetted for accuracy will become all the rage in entertainment online. as long as someone is guarding internet neutrality like a hawk we should be ok!

boil the story down to the truth.

commit to that and we win.

Consider this:

In terms of shear manipulative mindfuckery, 911 stands apart.

But IF what Sibel-n-friends are talking about is one tenth true... in terms of people involved and deep political corruption... the actuary costs in lives lost and dollars counted... 911 was just a long-weekend job for these bastards.

They did not count on the internet becoming what it has.

that's my message to the Hon. Waxman.

and a great RAH RAH if we start getting the truth. that means if they're going to hang out another "5 frames at the Pentagon" bait then they may as well drop their fishing gear right now. This development is either a positive step by those in power or it is a delaying tactic. And frankly, if that's what it turns out to be look out--our bullhorns go to 11... :)

Is Cheney's speech in front of AIPAC...

"So where is the oil going to come from?... The Middle East, with two-thirds of the world's oil and the lowest cost, is still where the prize ultimately lies."

Richard Cheney - Chief Executive Of Halliburton

For those...

Who do not understand how important Sibel's link is to 9/11 Truth, let me try to help.

The family members had to fight for her to testify before the 9/11 Commission. She testified for 3 hours. She received a footnote in the back of the 9/11 Report.

The 9/11 Commissioners, and I'm almost certain, Philip Zelikow, were told everything that Sibel knows, and everything we have read in recent days.

None of them felt obligated to investigate these claims even though it was CLEARLY within their mandate. As American citizens, none of them felt obligated to report these crimes to the proper authorities.

Right now, Sibel represents several whistleblowers that were ignored, or turned away from the 9/11 Commission.

She will invalidate the entire 9/11 Commission's report. In front of Congress, and the people.

If she gets her "day in court", she will, without doubt, open up a can of worms the likes of which has never been seen before. That will lead to other cans, and other cans, and ultimately, I believe, the absolute truth of 9/11.

But it is the PEOPLE that can accept NO LESS.

We have to keep pushing, and pushing. There must be accountability. There must be.

In other words, this is most certainly a GOOD thing.

well put Jon

Sibel can't tell us all we want to know about 911 - but she CAN demonstrate that there was a cover-up - and that will lead to all sorts of questions, balls rolling etc.

And she can point to the ATC as the nexus for a lot of activity around 911 - and we know that the people involved at the ATC include Perle, Feith, Grossman et al.

So I think it's in all of our interest to support the hearings. One last push for phone calls on Monday & Tuesday.


Lukery, impressive takeover of DKos

Your particular focus and persistence at DKos incredably broke through the bouncers and forbidden subject forcefield, and scored recommended essays three times this week.

Very impressive. Congratulations.

i never thought we'd make it!

thanks for your kind words.


Making the effort on calls for Sibel

We might as well spread the news about calling Congressman Waxman all over the net. To the groups we visit and request that as many people as possible make the call. I've posted it a couple of times on http://www.democrats.org blog and http://www.crooksandliars.com is allowing the posts regarding Sibel. Great work on getting the DailyKos crowd into it. I hope his office is bombasted with calls to the point he thinks the whole society wants him to hold these hearings. I haven't researched Sibel that much, but we might as well work like hell to help her get heard. That is all I know.

2 days

Thanks Orangutan - if you can push the news over the weekend, and then we'll have Monday and Tuesday for final calls - and then we demand an answer.


Approaching the tipping point

The Sibel Edmonds story coming to the fore and the US attorney firing scandal erupting(they thought about firing all 93) among other things, indicate massive tectonic plates of truth beginning to shift.

What lays ahead of us is the climax of one of the most iconic periods in American and world history. I believe we will win.
