Sibel Edmonds must be heard (Huffington Post 2/4/08)
EXCERPT: “Sibel Edmonds is the FBI translator turned whistleblower who decided to go public late in 2002 and has been seeking to tell her story about high level corruption in the United States government involving Turkey and Israel. What makes her story particularly compelling is that the corruption relates to the theft and sale of United States defense secrets, most particularly nuclear technology. Sibel obtained her information while translating Turkish language telephone intercepts directed against several Turkish lobbying groups who had contact with senior officials in the Bush Administration, both at the Pentagon and in the State Department. Many of the officials involved are apparently the same neoconservatives who cooked the books to enable the rush to war against Iraq and who are continuing to urge more wars in the Middle East, most notably against Iran and Syria. Several of them are close allies of leading Republican presidential candidate John McCain.”

EXCERPT: “A report by the department’s senior oversight official, Glenn Fine, said that other accusations made by Mrs Edmonds relating to poor standards in the FBI’s translation department and possible espionage, were supported by witnesses and other evidence. The official said even today the FBI had not properly investigated the claims. “We found that many of Edmonds’ core allegations relating to the [espionage allegation] were supported by either documentary evidence or witnesses other than Edmonds,” the report said.”
