FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds spills her secrets.

by Philip Giraldi

And who you may ask is Philip Giraldi? Philip Giraldi, a former CIA Officer, is a partner in Cannistraro Associates, an international security consultancy.

There is very clearly an attempt in progress to put the Sibel Edmonds case on the "front burner" (or at least to take it out of the freezer). Further evidence here and above. These "signs of spring" (which certainly can't be characterized as "early" despite their appearance in January) seem to strengthen the belief that something has happened behind the scenes, in addition, of course, to the long term and up to now nearly fruitless efforts of Luke Ryland and other supporters of Sibel Edmonds. We'll know for sure that something is up if either Grassley or Leahy becomes visible, or some ambitious pol takes up the cause. One should, I think, bear in mind that the "dark side" has had five years to prepare a plausible refutation of Ms. Edmonds charges, so we may merely be witnessing a new attempt to swiftboat a pesky personality, and turn the accuser into the accused, or to use her in some way to put the derailed attack on Iran back on track. In any event, the congressional hearing at which Grossman is slated to testify could prove to be a compelling "media event", in the unlikely event that any of the "guardians of democracy" should decide to cover it. Which ain't fucking likely.
