As a follower of the War on Terrorism news reports and the White House 9-11 injustice I sometimes find a good story worth posting. This is a good one
FBI Translator Sibel Edmonds asked to change 911 Intercepts
Washington, DC -- March 24, 2004 --12:15 EST --
BREAKING SPECIAL REPORT FROM 9-11 HEARINGS
DOJ Asked FBI Translator To Change Pre 9-11 Intercepts
by Tom Flocco
FBI translator Sibel Edmonds was offered a substantial raise and a full time job to encourage her not to go public that she had been asked by the
Department of Justice (DOJ) to retranslate and adjust the translations of [terrorist] subject intercepts that had been received before September 11,
2001 by the FBI and CIA.
Edmonds, a ten year U.S. citizen who has passed a polygraph examination, speaks fluent Farsi and Turkish and had been working part time with the FBI
for six months--commencing in December, 2001.
In a 50 reporter frenzy in front of some 12 news cameras, Edmonds said "Attorney General John Ashcroft told me 'he was invoking State Secret
Privilege and National Security' when I told the FBI I wanted to go public with what I had translated from the pre 9-11 intercepts."
"I appeared once on CBS 60 Minutes but I have been silenced by Mr. Ashcroft, the FBI follows me, and I was threatened with jail in 2002 if I went
public," Edmonds told tomflocco.com.
When we asked her if it was really true that she had been bribed by the FBI and DOJ, Edmonds said "You can interpret it as that."
This writer personally asked Edmonds where the term "State Secret Privilege" was derived. "The term came from an October 18, 2002 DOJ memo to me
from DOJ spokesman Barbara Comstock," said Edmonds.
"My translations of the pre 9-11 intercepts included [terrorist] money laundering, detailed and date specific information enough to alert the
American people, and other issues dating back to 1999 which I won't go into right now."
Incredibly, Edmonds said "The Senate Judiciary Committee and the 911 Commission have heard me testify for lengthy periods of time (3 hours) about
very specific plots, dates, airplanes used as weapons, and specific individuals and activities."
This explosive information has been kept under wraps by the White House, CIA, FBI, and DOJ since Edmonds' 60 Minutes interview segment.
