Sibel Edmonds, a former FBI language specialist, was terminated from the bureau after reporting security breaches, cover-up, and blocking of intelligence with national security implications. Since that time, court proceedings in her whistleblower case have been blocked by the imposition of ?State Secret Privilege,? and Congress has been prevented from discussion of her case through retroactive reclassification by the Department of Justice. Edmonds, fluent in Turkish, Farsi and Azerbaijani; holds an MA in Public Policy and International Commerce from George Mason University, and a BA in Criminal Justice and Psychology from George Washington University.

Establishment-Made Heroes, Blind Seekers of Saviors & Suckers The real majority believe with a blind and unshakable faith. Because they want to believe. Because they want saviors. Because they want heroes. Again, no matter how many facts you give them, no matter how many contradictions you show them, no matter how much historical context you provide them with, they are going to hold on to their beliefs.

Rescind President Obama's 'Transparency Award' Now Obama has invoked baseless and unconstitutional executive secrecy to quash legal inquiries into secret illegalities more often than any predecessor. The list of this president's invocations of the "state secrets privilege" has already resulted in shutting down lawsuits involving the National Security Agency's illegal wiretapping

Bin Laden Death Script and the Needed Trigger for Next Step -- Pakistan We'll be reading and watching and listening to their PR machine in the media give us one concocted fantasy after another. As in all other wars of ours we will have zero to say, zilch to gain, and plenty to lose. They have the cards, and we are the piled up tokens on the table.

In the Name of a General, his Son, a Spook & the Godmother of Neocons No matter what, with this kind of foundation, nothing will change for us, the ordinary Americans. Our tax dollars will go to the Wardaks or Wardaks-like parasites. Our soldiers will lose arms and legs, or their lives. The Afghani civilians will continue to suffer death, destruction, and chaos.

Bombing Afghanistan: Where Have All the Photos Gone Maybe releasing the photographs of the nameless unrepresented victims of these airstrikes should be as important as those of torture. Because, from what I see, they and their loss of lives have been reduced to some petty number to fight about.

"Contrary to what they may claim in order to pacify the recent 'Anti State Secrets Privilege' movement, the Congress does not want to deal with this issue. And this applies to members of both parties...of course we will hold a couple of hearings and show we have investigated and reviewed cases..." (Unnamed congressional staffer.)

Two Sides of the Same Coin: Heads-Heads During the campaign, many disregarded Pres Candidate Obama's past record. Some continued their reluctant support after candidate Obama became grand finalist and prayed for the best. And a few still continue their rationalizing and defense, with illogical excuses such as he's only been in office x days. Edmonds takes the position that if he can do this much damage to our civil liberties, democracy, etc., then god help what...

In Congress We Trust... Not Jane Harmon told a suspected Israeli agent that she would lobby the Justice Department to reduce espionage-related charges against two former officials of AIPAC. The Israeli agent pledged to help lobby for Harman to become chairwoman of the House Intelligence Committee. The Duopoly unites in blocking public attempts to investigate Congressional crimes. It's all for one and one for all.
