The UK’s Guardian is running a piece, “US journalists ignore Sunday Times scoop on FBI nuclear scandal,” criticizing the US media for not picking up on the latest revelations by their competitor, the UK’s Times, in the case of former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds.

The author of the piece is the Guardian’s media commentator, Roy Greenslade, a Professor of Journalism and former Managing Editor of the Times. He writes:

It looks to me as though the Sunday Times has landed a genuine world exclusive that should surely have been broken ages ago by US-based reporters.

I agree entirely. Consider what any journalist in the US has known, or should have known, for years.

Sibel’s case broke as an espionage story in June 2002 in the Washington Post and an October 2002 CBS’ 60 Minutes segment (youtube) where we learned that foreign operatives had spies working for them in both the Pentagon and the State Department.

Simply following the names and associations of the people known to be involved, any journalist should have been able to piece together the broad outlines of the story simply from public sources.

    It’s the most complete synopsis/overview I’ve seen and gave me the necessary background/context to let me wrap my mind around this complex story. It’s 52 min long and excepting 2 minutes in the middle had me ‘glued to the tube’
