‘Gagged’ FBI Whistleblower, Risking Jail, Says American Media Have Refused Her Offer to Disclose Classified Information, Including Criminal Allegations, Information Concerning ‘Security of Americans’
The BRAD BLOG spoke recently with the legendary 1970’s-era whistleblower [Ellsberg] in the wake of our recent exclusive, detailing Edmonds’s announcement that she was prepared to risk prosecution to expose the entirety of the still-classified information that the Bush Administration has “gagged” her from revealing for the past five years under claims of the arcane “State Secrets Privilege.”
“I have been receiving calls from the mainstream media all day,” Edmonds recounted the day after we ran the story announcing that she was prepared to violate her gag-order to disclose all of the national security-related criminal allegations she has been kept from disclosing for the past five years.
“The media called from Japan and France and Belgium and Germany and Canada and from all over the world,” she told The BRAD BLOG.
“But not from here?” we asked incredulously.
“I am confident that there is conversation inside the Government as to ‘How do we deal with Sibel?'” contends Ellsberg. “The first line of defense is to ensure that she doesn’t get into the media. I think any outlet that thought of using her materials would go to to the government and they would be told ‘don’t touch this, it’s communications intelligence.”
—–Good grief people! The woman worked a full 9 months with the FBI – how much classified information could she possibly have obtained during her training period? Lady, if ya had something to say – you would say it to Japan, France, Belgium, Germany, Canada and other places “all over the world.”
And, um lemme see – “they” can murder Kennedys, MLK, assassinate and/or overthrow foreign leaders, experiment with mind control on American citizens, use Monica to set up Clinton, can steal elections, wellstoned Paul Wellstone, pulled off 9-11 attacks, can set up and engage in large scale preemptive wars, etc. etc. etc. etc. etc., and yet – as God is my witness – for 5 years “they” have scratched their heads and asked “how do we deal with Sibel?”
Can the sheople get any dumber? (Rhetorical question.)
(And learn some grammar rules BradBlog; possessive Edmonds is Edmonds’ not Edmonds’s.)
