Sibel Edmonds’s Big Day

Sibel Edmonds, former contract-FBI translator/whistleblower and “most gagged person in U.S. history” has finally told all – to’s Philip Giraldi. It’s all in the cover story for November’s issue of The American Conservative magazine, “Who’s Afraid of Sibel Edmonds?” which hits the stands (and Website) on Tuesday.

Last month, Edmonds was deposed in a civil lawsuit for 6 hours (video and transcript here), and told as much of her story as she ever has, and all together in one place. Now, however, she has gone much further and apparently told Giraldi everything, less sources and methods.

For those who’ve been waiting for the day when this story would break back into the mainstream media, this may be the time to get out your trusty old letter-to-the-editor pen, set your speed-dial to the local morning news radio stations, and make sure to Facebook friend your 2nd cousin at CNN so you can send him a message when the article goes online.

How could they possibly continue to ignore such tales of drugs, guns, spies, lies, bribes, sex, blackmail, terrorism and the nuke black market from such an inside source?

Tuesday on Antiwar Radio, I’ll be speaking with Giraldi, David Rose and Joe Lauria – the journalists who’ve done the best and most “credentialed” reporting on her case – about all of Edmonds’ explosive allegations. Listen live 2-4 Eastern at

Update: Brad Friedman has more details here.

Update II: The interview is now online here.

Update III: My interview of Philip Giraldi and Joe Lauria here.

    1. Thank you so much for your continued courage in fighting this cause. You are a true patriot amongst the evil ruling/ruining this nation. I am not alone when I say we support you 100%.

    2. My best regards to you, Ms. Edmonds. I read your interview with Philip Giraldi, and you confirm what thinking people have always known: The District of Corruption is–well, the District of Corruption!

  1. In this explosive interview, Edmonds mentions a Congresswoman, Jan Schakowsky, as having been blackmailed in a lesbian sex sting by a Turkish spy ring.

    Schakowsky is my Congressional representative and a political darling in my liberal town. Proving that corruption, and now probably treason are bipartisan, Schakowsky last year, just before the election, voted for the billionaire banker bailout despite massive constituent opposition to it. Yet the liberal chumps still re-elected her. More recently she voted for Obama's fraudulent stimulus plan and for the latest Iraq/Afghanistan war bill.

      1. I hope that you're right, Peaceful_Idiot, but, unless she's in jail by then, I suspect that her brain dead useful idiot supporters will have forgiven and forgotten everything by November 2010, just as Bush's Jesus zombies saw nothing wrong with their man killing dark skinned Arab infidels by the hundreds of thousands. Tribal politics rules America.

        1. Very True. I admit that I'm far too cynical to have been so optimistic in the first place. It's telling when hoping for a credible primary challenger against a treasonous congresscritter requires elevating your expectations.

    1. I bet Jan Schakowsky and her fellow traitor Jane Harman are returned to office without the issue of their disloyalty ever being raised.

  2. has any one gone in to how this connects to Valery plame ?
    i believe ms Edmonds said that her frort company had already been outed several years back.
    seem like some what i a side track but to me it seems like alot of people on the top must have been completely aware of every thing Sibel is disclosing

    1. Paul, please click Joe Lauria's name above for more on the "Brewster Jennings" (CIA front company) angle. Also, it's in the deposition and today's interview of Giraldi and Lauria a bit as well. Edmonds says Marc Grossman warned some Turkish spies about Brewster Jennings right on the eve of a deal the Turks were going to strike with them in '01, and I think also that they in turn warned Pakistan, etc.

  4. A major link between the Jewish lobby/Neocons/Marc Grossman -and- Turkey is that they have long collaborated to deny the Armenian genocide.

    A 2007 campaign exposed the ADL:

    Click on "Timeline" and "News Archive"

    Giraldi ignores the Armenian aspect. He didn't mention that the reason Sibel testified against Cong. Schmidt is that her opponent, David Krikorian, an Armenian American, charged that Schmidt had taken money for her opposition to the Armenian genocide resolution. Giraldi's apparent attitude about Armenians and recognition of the Armenian genocide, and his own pro-Turkish attitude, are a coverup. If the Armenian angle had been investigated by Giraldi — he knew about the issue — the Jewish – Israeli – Turkish triangle would have come to public light sooner.

    Go here ("Press Kit: A History of Opposing Recognition of the Armenian Genocide") to see what Antiwar, Giraldi, and the American Conservative have been covering up:

  5. David, I did not ignore the Armenian genocide issue. It was a major part of the interview but when we edited down from 10,000 words to get under our 4,000 word limit we felt there were other issues like treason and corruption that we had to include and were unable to come up with enough space to give the Armenian issue justice. There simply was no room to discuss the details of the Ohio court case filed by David Krikorian or to analyze the voting record of Congressman Dennis Hastert. Yes, I lived in Turkey and like Turks but I am not "pro-Turkish" or I would not have done this interview which is highly critical of Turkey. I do not believe that the Armenian genocide resolution should be passed by our Congress, but that is a foreign policy issue for me as it is for many others and I do not question in any way the reality and horror of the Armenian genocide.

    1. To omit is to igore. To ignore is not to place the information in your text. I have no animosity towards Turks or Turkey, they are people just like you and me. Unfortunately, they have had some bad luck their governments who have misled the people in the past and are continuing to mislead their people today. Most progressive Turks, and by progressive I mean true conservatives, those who want to conserve the truth and respects the individual, need our help to expose those bad elements of their government continue to distort Turkey's past. To free Turkey from the shackles of ignorance, in many areas, one must break down the taboos on facing Turkey's past honestly and openly. If you had any love for Turkey, or even respect, you would aid those elements trying to reform their government and honestly face their past.

  6. How could the[e mainstream media] possibly continue to ignore such tales of drugs, guns, spies, lies, bribes, sex, blackmail, terrorism and the nuke black market from such an inside source?

    Scott, I'm going to assume that this is a rhetorical question, knowing that you're far too savvy, cynical, and experienced as a journalist to ask it at face value. For the uninitiated or naive, the answer to Scott's question is that the kept MSM HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO ignore the Sibel Edmonds story because they, in doing their Establishment masters' propagandizing, are at least indirectly responsible for the events surrounding it. They would be forced to admit as much if they ever were to help disclose the full truth, thereby further eroding what little of their credibility remains. (Think of the chronic alcoholic who can't afford to lose one more brain cell for fear of lapsing into an irreversible coma and permanent brain death.)

  7. Edmonds mentions that ouside of DC, Chicago was a major center of these treasonous activities. She also mentions in passing, but without providing any details, that Mayor Daley of Chicago and some Illinois state senators were also involved. Obama was a state Senator from 1997 to 2004. Considering that arch zionist, Rahm Emanuel, is also from Chicago, could he have had a role?

    Does Edmonds have any details about the Chicago Connection?

  8. Woman is sharp as a tack. I like the fact she lays it out but am not surprised that her nuclear bombshells of revelation are reported more widely. Unless there is a groundswell to bring this to light we will see some other “crisis” pop up to further distract the masses. It is inevitable.

  9. It's interesting to see how all of Sibel Edmond's revelations have been covered up so effectively. I think it tends to show how easy it is cover up conspiracies, even extensive ones. Mr. Giraldi is beginning to remind me of Prof. Steven Jones. Complete nutters of course, both of them.

  10. Steven Jones believes he has evidence of thermate in the dust from the WTC. There's no need to refute that evidence – it's a priori nuts! Philip Giraldi believes that Sibel Edmonds has evidence of an enormous international conspiracy. What rot! If such a thing were even possible, everybody would know and the public would riot in the streets! And of course, all good libertarians know that the government can't even deliver the mail, so it's too dumb to hide a conspiracy.

    Both Jones and Giraldi think that their evidence needs to be heard, and both have adopted a slightly pleading tone. Actually, irony aside, I think the only nutty thing is not recognizing their shared commitment to evidence and justice.

    (Jones may be completely wrong, but there's enough riding on the matter and enough other evidence of wrong-doing to merit a proper investigation, and stop attacking people who call for one.)
