Not to be confused with Sibel Edmonds' State Secrets Privilege Gallery.

The National Security Whistleblowers Coalition Dirty Dozen is a collection of US public officials chosen by Sibel Edmonds in late July 2006.


On 29 June 2006, The National Security Whistleblowers Coalition announced its Whistleblowers’ Dirty Dozen Campaign. She listed members of congress who "by their action or inaction, have stood against real investigations, hearings, and legislation dealing with government whistleblowers who have exposed waste, fraud, abuse, and or criminal activities within government agencies."[1][2]

Selection criteria

“This Dirty Dozen list could have easily been 60 or 70 people - unfortunately. It's a sad reflection on how bad things are in Congress. We had to limit the list to a number that we could manage, so we decided to keep it to a dozen people. These dozen people are at the top of our list because they have let us down the most - and also those who have been in the position to do something.”
Sibel Edmonds (30 July 2006)  [3]
