The military news outlet Military.com is covering the story of FBI linguist-turned-whistelblower Sibel Edmonds as their lead story today.
Report Bryant Jordan’s 1,500 word feature includes a background summary of Edmonds’ story, which The BRAD BLOG has been detailing for years, and a summary of the allegations she offered under oath last August in her sworn deposition following seven years of “forced silence” under a court-ordered gag due to the so-called “State Secrets Privilege” twice-invoked by George W. Bush’s Department of Justice.
Jordan’s piece is well reported and includes, for the first time to our knowledge, several forms of denials of Edmonds allegations by some of Bush’s key State and Defense Department officials — such as Richard Perle and Douglas Feith — who, she says, were participants in espionage plots against the United States in order to share military and even nuclear secrets with Turkish and Israeli government operatives.
