Interview with Sibel Edmonds: FBI Translator and 9/11 Whistleblower

Interview with Sibel Edmonds: FBI Translator and 9/11 Whistleblower

Below is the amazing story from the Baltimore Chronicle of an FBI translator who saw documents that clearly show criminal conduct by elements within the US government who could have done things to prevent 9/11. She is being gagged from telling all she knows by the very top levels of government. I have provided the highlights of this long article for you. The link to the full story is immediately below.

I also have worked as a contract Indonesian interpreter with the US Department of State. I have interpreted for Bush, Cheney, Clinton, Gore, and many others. In my work, I have seen a few disturbing things as well, even one instance related to terrorism possibly orchestrated by elements within the US government.

You can read the inspiring story of how I came to interpret for the president at www.gcforall.org/inspiringstories (the story is in Issue #1, at the bottom of the webpage).Take care and have a great day!

INTRODUCTION: Sibel Edmonds and Behrooz Sarshar, beginning in December of 2001, began filing reports to their superiors at the FBI. These reports could lead to the collapse of a corrupt power structure that has a stranglehold on the very institutions that are obligated to control it. We cannot excuse these institutions, for while they fiddle, they pass death sentences on their own troops, and on the people of Afghanistan and Iraq.
On April 30th, Sibel Edmonds was my guest for 50 minutes on WGDR radio. What follows is an edited transcript of the interview. The editing is for the sake of a more readable piece.
Sibel Edmonds is a former FBI translator. She blew the whistle on the cover-up of intelligence that names some of the culprits who orchestrated the 9/11 attacks. These culprits are protected by the Justice Department, the State Department, the FBI, the White House and the Senate Judiciary Committee. They are foreign nationals and Americans. Ms. Edmonds is under two gag orders that forbid her to testify in court or mention the names of the people or the countries involved.

"If they were to do real investigations we would see several significant high level criminal prosecutions in this country. And that is something that they are not going to let out. And, believe me; they will do everything to cover this up."
-Sibel Edmonds, former FBI translator
