Sibel Edmonds: US Government Needs to Keep the Fear Factor Alive by Creating Terror Threats

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 covers 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, up to, and AFTER the attacks of September 11. In other interviews she has said that the US had intimate ties to 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 but if they find themselves with no threats, like at the end of the Cold War, they lose their importance and relevance.

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.
