Sibel Edmonds Documentary - Kill The Messenger

'Uncovered a Network of Nuclear
Black-Market, Narcotics &
Illegal Arms Trafficking'

Product Description:

In the wake of September 11, 2001, Sibel Edmonds is approached by the FBI. As an American of Iranian and Turkish origin, Edmonds’ linguistic skill-set makes her a valuable asset to the Language Services Unit, where she spends months translating high-security clearance documents. One day shortly after reporting the possible infiltration of her unit by Turkish spies to her supervisors and their supervisors, Edmonds’ world is turned upside-down.

Instead of seeing her colleague become the target of an investigation, she is interrogated, then unceremoniously fired and warned not to pursue her claims any further as she would be watched and listened to. In the years that follow, Edmonds is transformed into the country’s first public National Security whistle-blower and a prominent First Amendment advocate (the ACLU calls her the “most gagged woman in America”). Sibel is fighting for the very ideals that American democracy relies on and is facing, against overwhelming odds, some of the most reckless and powerful officials in the U.S. government. She brings her case to Congress, the 9/11 Commission, the media and the Supreme Court, facing down not only the FBI, but also then-Attorney General John Ashcroft, Vice-President Dick Cheney and then-National Security Advisor Condelezza Rice.

Sibel has granted the film crew full and exclusive access to document her story and her struggle as we zero in on her “secret”—the network of nuclear black-market, narcotics and illegal arms trafficking activities. Playing like a big-screen adaptation of Frontline, 'Kill the Messenger' is a riveting true spy story that presents one citizen’s unexpected journey through the politicized quagmire that is America’s War on Terror.

Well Done! Whistle-Blowers Are True Patriots

Just finished watching this documentary and was very impressed. I loved the part where they drill the holes in the 9/11 Commission Report. One mistake in the documentary is the date of the release of the 9/11 Commission Report. The documentary states it is July 24th, 2004 and it should be July 22nd, 2004. The documentary connects a lot of dots and that will all help if we have a real investigation.

Beyond the Triangle

This is a terrific documentary and shows the absolute frustration of Sibel trying to get the truth out. That said, it would be fascinating to see what else was in Sibel's documents besides the dirty business dealings between Congress members, Turkey and Israel. Did she see anything for instance about the attacks on the WTC being a false flag operation? Her story has focused on the government having advance knowledge of the attacks. Did her classified documents also say that the jets were a ruse? I guess Sibel still can't speak about such matters.

One brave woman

Sibel Edmonds is a very brave woman and her story portrayed in this video is compelling. Unfortunately the Supreme Court “decided not to review the lower court’s decision” about her case and her fate was sealed at a high level meeting 3 years before, perhaps (as Janice L. Kephart, a 9/11 Commission attorney once said) “because it’s all about protection of the institution in the end.”

It’s well worth repeating and taking to heart Sibel Edmond’s warning:

“Today we are facing despots who use national security and classification to push everything under a blanket of secrecy. To gag, and call it a privilege. Unless we recognize these attacks for what they are, and stand up and speak out; no shout out, against those despots in government, then we are doomed to wake up one sad morning and wonder when and where our freedom died.”
