4,000 word exclusive interview with the gagged FBI whistleblower on espionage, al-Qaeda, and secrets for sale'...
Broke the news on air tonight. 4,000 word cover story on FBI translator turned whistleblower Sibel Edmonds in The American Conservative to hit stands and web tomorrow, by former CIA agent Phil Giraldi.
Well pick this up tomorrow after I get a look at it. You East Coasters will likely beat me to it. But heres the teaser from TAC :
Theres a new issue of The American Conservative going to press today, and it includes a story that will make more than a few congressmen and foreign lobbyists intensely uncomfortable: an in-depth interview between Phil Giraldi and FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds. She tells us exactly how Turkish intelligence have penetrated national secrets, suborned government officials, and blackmailed Congress. Its going to be explosive.
Good. Rightwingers are covering it. So hopefully that means the liberal media will now pay attention!
UPDATE 9/18/09 1:15pm PT: Sibel posted the cover over at her site, and Ive added it above. She also notes that the story is currently online available online to subscribers only until Monday when theyll release a major press release along with the print version out the same day. The story should then be available to all online on Tuesday.
The cover title: Whos Afraid of Sibel Edmonds?: The gagged FBI whistleblower on espionage, al-Qaeda, and secrets for sale
In an email she just sent me just now, she notes: Weve been getting foreign MSM inquiries; tons. Zilch here; so far
Not much of a surprise by now. After all, what U.S. media would possibly care about members of the U.S. Congress and high-ranking State and Defense Dept. officials taking bribes, being blackmailed, and enabling the theft and sale of U.S. nuclear secrets? Even if the allegations came under sworn and video-taped deposition by a former FBI translator who overheard such things first hand. Non-story, apparently.
