The Obama administration has the worst track record when it comes to prosecuting whistleblowers. Obama once claimed he'd work hard to have a transparent government, but many have faced retaliation for revealing controversial government information. Sibel Edmonds, who is a whistleblower, waited 340 days for FBI clearance of her memoir but finally released it on her own. Edmonds, founder of the National Security Whistleblowers Coalition, joins us for more.
Edmonds talks about her experience with the controlled mass media, the cover-up of pre-911 intelligence and also general corruption in Government departments - with individuals inside the USA working with foreign nations (presumably Turkey and Israel) to the detriment of US National Security.
Regarding Bin Laden, and Bin Laden related groups, according to Sibel, the CIA and State Department had been working with them throughout the 90s, right up to, and AFTER the attacks of September 11. In other interviews she has also said that the US had intimate ties to Osama Bin Laden right up to the day of the attacks.
This is the real world we live in. The billion dollar budgeted intelligence agencies DO have tentacles everywhere, but they don't talk about it. They know what's going on and manipulate things to serve certain geopolitical interests. This sort of thing has been going on for a long time. And >> if these interests find themselves with no serious threats, or rather no military excuse to intervene in foreign countries, like at the end of the Cold War, then they lose a measure of their ability to control events - hence the War on Terror.
This is a great clip.
And note: when asked about bombshell information, Sibel states she did not release information that she knew was classified. There is obviously more story to tell. However, what we do know is damning enough.
