Based on her testimony, the only conclusion one can reach is that a Turkish government spy ring, perhaps acting for the interests of Turkey, perhaps as a cutout spy ring acting for the interests of another country or some combination of both, has infiltrated, in a massive way, "high levels of the United States government".
We are talking about the Pentagon, the State Department and Congress.
It is mind boggling that there is not major league front page coverage. 24 hour cable coverage. I repeat, a very credible person who was an FBI contract worker assigned to listen in on the wire tapped conversations of Turkish spies says that those spies have penetrated the Pentagon, the State Department and Congress.
When the FBI hired another Turkish translator, who turned out to be a member of one of the Turkish organizations that was spying on the United States, she reported this to her FBI bosses.
The new trnaslator visited Edmonds house with her husband. The translator's husabnd was at the time a major with the Defense Intelligence Agency, Major Douglas Dickerson, and he was working for neo-conservative Douglas Feith's office and was a coordinator with the State Department on the Republics in Central Asia.
Edmonds believes the visit was a recruitment attempt by the husband and wife for her to join one of the Turkish organizations that was operating one of the spy rings:
Q And during that discussion, during that visit, did you come to belive that Ms. Dickerson was recruiting you?Edmonds was eventually fired.
A Yes, I did.
Q For what?
A They wanted me to joint the American Turkish Council, and they told me that I would be provided with many benefits, both monetary but also prestigious benefits, if I were to enroll with them.
Q Okay, and did you know at the time that the American Turkish Council was one of the counterintelligence targets?
A Absolutely, yes.
Q And did you believe Ms. Dickerson knew that as well?
A She -- yes, and the fact because her husband associated with American Turkish Council and she worked for them.
With Turkish infiltration and Paulson doling out billions to his cronies, do we really need to expand current government agencies and create more government agencies, which will only be new sources of power that the bad guys will attempt to capture?
And, one can only ask, can the lack of coverage of the Sibel Edmonds' testimony be further proof of how captured this country already is?
