National Security Whistleblowers series continues on Worldview
Wednesday July 9, 2008 by Jonah Meadows, Worldview Producer
Sibel Deniz Edmonds (pictured at left) is a former FBI translator who says she saw evidence of “criminal activities involving U.S. officials.” After she blew the whistle, the government used the “State Secrets Privilege” to silence her in court.

Sibel first came to public awareness in a 2002 60 Minutes story, and much of what is known about allegations came from a 2005 Vanity Fair article by British journalist David Rose. (It even prompted a letter of complaint from Dennis Hastert’s lawyer. Hastert was implicated in the allegations of bribery and corruption by Turkish agents.)

After the Supreme Court refused to hear her case, upholding its dismissal on State Secrets grounds, Sibel’s story disappeared from the media. But this year was different. In January, the British Sunday Times newspaper published an explosive three-part series into Sibel’s allegations.

On Worldview today, Jerome talked to Joe Lauria, an investigative journalist who contributed to the Sunday Times series, while I had the chance to talk with Sibel.

Also, to get an idea of how much has remained secret in this case, check out the redacted version of the official Department of Justice Inspector General’s report into the actions surrounding Sibel’s case. [warning: large PDFfile, but you'll want to see this...]

Here’s part one of the interview with Sibel.

Sibel Edmonds story must be investigated.

I believe Sibel Edmonds has uncovered something huge. She is a true patriot. Her exposure of Marc Grossman, number 3 man in the US State Department at the time, selling nuclear secrets through operatives of the ATC into the black market is of paramount importance.

Grossman now works for the Cohen Group. He is in the lobbying and propaganda business.

I found this article in the Boston Globe where he is promoting closer ties and legislative financial assistance for Columbia.

Is Columbia a client of the Cohen Group?

I see Columbia as a strategic partner for the future invasion of Venezuela. It will likely be a covert proxy war with the objective of overthrowing Chavez and getting their oil for the multinational oil conglomerates like EXXON/MOBIL. I am quite certain that Columbia is still a huge supplier of cocaine to the US. I guess that isn't a deal killer because cocaine is being trafficked by our own CIA and military. Cocaine is providing money to the CIA for covert ops like Iran/Contra. Not to mention enriching individuals like Oliver North.
