SmellsLikePodcast·Dec. 13, 2012

Sibel Edmonds is the founder and President of the National Security Whistleblowers Coalition (NSWBC), and runs the independent website Boiling Frogs Post. During her time working for the FBI in 2001-2002, she reported on serious acts of misconduct within the Bureau, and was subsequently retaliated against, and fired. After a long battle, she published the book Classified Woman: The Sibel Edmonds Story, earlier this year. Her courage and willingness to fight for justice are traits that are to be admired, and we were very pleased to have the opportunity to speak with her on the podcast. Enjoy!

  12. To say “They allowed” 9/11 is really a sign of disrespect to those who have spent the last ten years proving “They DID it.” We have more than enough evidence right now to arrest and indict 9/11 perpetrators by the dozen. There is simply a lack of muscle, a lack of moral courage and a lack of national (or international) WILL to do so. Tomorrow.

    • Lynn, however sympathetic one is ~and I must say the entire history leading up to that day really does stink ~ inference will never constitute proof. We cannot assign responsibility on circumstantial grounds alone, however persuasive the argument from clustered anomalies or association. Proof is a highly contentious concept. We must be able to demonstrate, incontrovertibly, the total falsehood of the official line peddled by arrogant, self-serving mouthpieces; but that is not enough.
      What is needed to unravel this freighted and complex enigma is some kind of inside testimonial, that finally exposes the specific actions that occurred or did not, and will eliminate any possibility of erroneous assumption.
      What is missing here is the evidence of the surviving alleged perpetrators, and their story from the “other side.” Everything that has emerged from them has been redacted, completely restricted or elicited from torture. We need more fluent and reliable Arabic detail. Also the Pakistani money trail is far from clear.
      The right questions are being asked, so far we do not have conclusive answers.
      Where is the specific Thermite evidence for example? If charges were placed in those buildings, someone somewhere knows exactly how, when, where and what.
      If the planes were guided, then this crucial element is a residual fact and ought to be traceable. All chains have links. There is no such thing as an unbreakable chain.

      • I beg to differ. We have more than sufficient material evidence to indict a host of key figures in the crimes of that day. Not only for the demolitions themselves, but for destruction of evidence, obstruction of justice, suborning perjury and R.I.CO. offenses. These include Giuliani, Silverstein, Jerome Hauer, Bernard Kerik and Donald Rumsfeld. We could arrest Rumsfeld and the active commanders of the Joint Chiefs (especially General Myers) and Maj.Gen. Arnold for the NORAD stand-down (“exercises”) alone.

        • I say “bring it on!”
          If you really think there is enough evidence to charge these self-obsessed freaks, terrific, bravo. I shall be the first to encourage and support their indictment. I’ve been studying the collective documentary works of Scott Noble (Lifting the Veil, PsyWar, the Power Principle etc.) that taken together with the more surreal masterpieces of Adam Curtis constitute an extraordinary archive of thought provoking and enlightening material.
          Great stuff. Lets bring down this tyranny, reinvent the world, liberate our intelligence!

  13. So agree, Ariel.
    Tracking back to
    Wet’suwet’en defender Mel Bazil speaks about his traditional language in which “law” and “responsibility” are synonymous concepts.

    The difference between Shell and indigenous notions of law are therefore acutely significant.
    Shell’s legal jargon turns “responsibility” into corporate gain for China profit and their inarguable “need” to systematically destroy Nature, thereby deliberately violating indigenous habitats and spreading toxic pollution. So let’s hear it for heroic Shell! Just drop the S and we get the idea.
    Indigenous responsibility means to steward and protect life. How stupid is that? Why, its just absurd…to assert that Nature is Sacred ~ even Alive!

  14. Sibel, right on! I learned most of these lessons as an anti-war activist and feminist back in the late 60’s and early 70’s, and was appalled to see the activists in the Bay Area after 9/11 accepting money from people such as the Rockefeller Foundation or Mellons, etc. I’m heartened that you are addressing this issue.

    Americans have not been politically savvy enough to mount an effective resistance movement to the militarization of our country that we’ve seen since 9/11.

    I’m going to post a message on our open forum here at Dandelion Salad that I wrote just the other day that addresses the issue of effective strategy, so that this comment does not go too long. We are on the same wavelength.
