Edmonds' case is only tangential to 9/11, from what has been revealed so far in the London Times and elsewhere, but it came to light due to 9/11.
She is natively fluent in Farsi and arabic and was approached by the FBI after 9/11 to go through a huge backlog of intercepts. She uncovered the plot
reported in the Times--high USG officials bribed to facilitate the placing of Turkish moles in sensitive positions to allow them to pillage US nuclear
secrets, which were sold on the black market by Turkey, Israel and Pakistan, and the resulting stonewalling of these revelations by the FBI.
She also uncovered the most important mover of all this, the American Turkish Council, or ATC, which is ostensibly a Turkish lobby but on whose board
sit reps of many major American military contractors--Boeing, Northrop, etc. She was approached to join the org. by co-workers already there, and
realized the FBI was infiltrated. She reported this, too, to her superiors, all the way to AG Ashcroft, and was fired as a result.
The essence of her claims were contested in a wrongful dismissal suit she initiated, and this is when she was slapped with the State Secrets gag,
which is so rarely used most people don't even know it exists.
The most interesting recent revelation is the connection between Edmond's case and that of Valerie Plame, the CIA operative outed by the Cheney
cabal, whose front company Brewster Jennings was working on nuclear arms proliferation in the Near and Middle East, and also had the ATC in its
Of course, ostensibly, to fight the GWOT, nuclear proliferation intelligence is of the highest importance, yet in both cases you see the exec. branch
undermining the work of the FBI and CIA, destroying extremely important assets that in the case of Plame took decades to set in place.
This case is horrifying.
