Sibel Edmonds was recruited by the FBI as a translator in the wake of 9/11. She quickly turned whistleblower when she discovered security breaches, cover-ups and malpractice at numerous levels. The US government has made her "the most gagged person in the history of the United States".

Sibel Deniz Edmonds is a Turkish-American[1] former FBI translator turned whistleblower. The most gagged woman in US legal history, she founded the National Security Whistleblowers Coalition[2]. Principal among her revelations are the development of Operation Gladio into Operation Gladio/B, a NATO-backed project to carry out false flag attacks in the name of "Islamic terrorists".

Background

Sibel Edmonds is fluent in English, Turkish, Farsi and Azerbaijani. She has a MA in Public Policy and International Commerce from George Mason University, and a BA in Criminal Justice and Psychology from George Washington University. [2] She was hired just after 9-11 as a language specialist for the FBI’s Washington Field Office.

Whistleblowing

During her work with the FBI, she discovered serious security breaches, cover-ups and deliberate blocking of intelligence. After she reported these acts to FBI management, she was disciplined and ultimately fired in March 2002. Her later claims have gained her awards and fame as a whistleblower.[3] The American Civil Liberties Union has termed her "the most gagged person in the history of the United States".

Sworn Deposition

On 8 August 2009, Edmonds gave a sworn deposition in which she testified to her knowledge of treasonous and corruption involving current and former members of Congress, US State Department and Defense Department officials. Given the nature of the deposition, the lines of questioning focused on Turkish espionage and services obtained through bribery and blackmail by Turkish officials and proxies. However, Edmonds has previously disclosed that the corruption involving U.S. officials also includes money laundering, drug trafficking, arms dealing, selling nuclear secrets, U.S. support for Ossama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda and obstruction of FBI investigations related to 9-11 both before and after the attacks. Edmonds learned of these things from wiretaps she translated for the FBI in 2001-2002.[4]

Edmonds testifies how compartmentalisation prevented agents on the ground from forming a bigger picture of the intrigues they were involved in:

"The most important thing for people to get is we're not even looking at one big investigation, all these agents working together. They were chopped up and divided, but because I worked in the central place... other agents were sending their material to me... I was in this position to see all the dots being connected... These agents, while I was there, because I was the central person, they started connecting the dots."
Sibel Edmonds[5]

Censorship

US Attorney General John Ashcroft asserted "State Secrets Privilege" to block legal action based on Edmonds' deposition. The Department of Justice moved to prevent US Congress from any discussion of her case by its "retroactive re-classification".

Later Activities

Sibel Edmonds has been an energetic independent journalist, attempting to raise awareness about the deep state and the corruption she saw evidence of while working for the FBI. She started a website, Boiling Frogs Post and later NewsBud.

Publications

The FBI classified 100% of Sibel's Classified Woman. When she found out that she doesn’t need to get pre-publication approval for “novels”, she decided to write a novel, The Lone Gladio, a roman à clef.

Blackmail“The did not want to appoint any federal judges to the bench... if ... candidates didn't have enough skeletons. Meaning they have to be rapists, pedophiles, despicable characters, and that information is collected during the background check, then they are used against these judges. So the judges rules per government instruction... They were all blackmailed. Blackmailed by whom? Blackmailed by the deep state... If you're squeaky clean and if you start running for a major position, the chances are you're not going to get there because you will be disqualified. They don't want you there.”2017Newsbud
Operation Gladio/B“For the past 11 years I have been emphasizing that my State Secrets Privilege & Gag Orders had to do with the FBI files (covering period 1996-2002 February) on covert-terrorist operations in Caucasus and Central Asia backed, managed and armed by US actors. These US-NATO directed operations in the region involved Bin-Laden and mainly Zawahiri ….. The FBI documents contained damning evidence (audio and written) collected between 1996-2002 tying these terror operations directly to the U.S. persons in the State Department/CIA and Pentagon. Also, how the State Department got Congress to grant huge amounts of funds to “front“ NGOs and businesses (mainly Turkish companies in US-listed/members of ATC) to funnel money to the terrorist cells in this region.”Global Research
Operation Gladio/B“projecting U.S. power in the former Soviet sphere of influence to access previously untapped strategic energy and mineral reserves for U.S. and European companies; pushing back Russian and Chinese power; and expanding the scope of lucrative criminal activities, particularly illegal arms and drugs trafficking.”

Corporate media“I am confident that there is conversation inside the Government as to ‘How do we deal with Sibel [Edmonds]? The first line of defense is to ensure that she doesn’t get into the [corporate] media. I think any outlet that thought of using her materials would go to to the government and they would be told “don’t touch this...””Daniel Ellsberg2014
Operation Gladio/B“Most Americans have never heard of Sibel Edmonds, and if the U.S. government has its way, they never will. The former FBI translator turned whistleblower tells a chilling story of corruption at Washington’s highest levels—sale of nuclear secrets, shielding of terrorist suspects, illegal arms transfers, narcotics trafficking, money laundering, espionage. She may be a first-rate fabulist, but Edmonds’ account is full of dates, places, and names. And if she is to be believed, a treasonous plot to embed moles in American military and nuclear installations and pass sensitive intelligence to Israeli, Pakistani, and Turkish sources was facilitated by figures in the upper echelons of the State and Defense Departments. Her charges could be easily confirmed or dismissed if classified government documents were made available to investigators.”Phil Giraldi2008
Operation Gladio/B“A journalist with the Sunday Times‘ investigative unit told this author he had interviewed former Special Agent in Charge, Dennis Saccher, who had moved to the FBI’s Colorado office. Saccher reportedly confirmed the veracity of Edmonds’ allegations of espionage, telling him that Edmonds’ story “should have been front page news” because it was “a scandal bigger than Watergate.””Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed
Operation Gladio/B“[The] investigation based on Edmonds’ information was supposed to have four parts, but was inexplicably dropped. “The story was pulled half-way, suddenly, without any warning”, the journalist said. “I wasn’t party to the editorial decision to drop the story, but there was a belief in the office amongst several journalists who were part of the Insight investigative unit that the decision was made under pressure from the U.S. State Department, because the story might cause a diplomatic incident... The way the story was dropped was unusual, but the belief amongst my colleagues this happened under political pressure is plausible.” He cryptically described an “editorial mechanism, linked to the paper but not formally part of it, which could however exert control on stories when necessary, linked to certain interests.” When asked which interests, the journalist said, “I can’t say. I can’t talk about that.”An unnamed "lead reporter" on Edmonds' series at the Sunday Times.
