Sibel Edmonds has a story to tell. She went to work as a Turkish and Farsi translator for the FBI five days after 9/11. Part of her job was to translate and transcribe recordings of conversations between suspected Turkish intelligence agents and their American contacts. She was fired from the FBI in April 2002 after she raised concerns that one of the translators in her section was a member of a Turkish organization that was under investigation for bribing senior government officials and members of Congress, drug trafficking, illegal weapons sales, money laundering, and nuclear proliferation. She appealed her termination, but was more alarmed that no effort was being made to address the corruption that she had been monitoring.
A Department of Justice inspector generals report called Edmondss allegations credible, serious, and warrant[ing] a thorough and careful review by the FBI. Ranking Senate Judiciary Committee members Pat Leahy (D-Vt.) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) have backed her publicly. 60 Minutes launched an investigation of her claims and found them believable. No one has ever disproved any of Edmondss revelations, which she says can be verified by FBI investigative files.
But on Aug. 8, she was finally able to testify under oath in a court case filed in Ohio and agreed to an interview with The American Conservative based on that testimony. What follows is her own account of what some consider the most incredible tale of corruption and influence peddling in recent times. As Sibel herself puts it, If this were written up as a novel, no one would believe it.

Blame Clinton! (seriously)
I saw this woman on a video...very credible and her story is very distressing regarding how corrupt our government officials are...
Bump for later reading
“very distressing regarding how corrupt our government officials are...”
We always hear of how corrupt govt types are in banana republics.
Guess we have no room to talk, no surprise though.
Mulituralism is a highway to corruption by foreign agents pulling the strings of Left wing tribal politics on politicians. This is about multiculturalism’s “Turkish-American community” operatives making headway into American power. You can multiply this by every Nation in the world.
It also declares that the US is multicultural meaning we have no culture or ethics - we are the cesspool of the world at it’s lowest common denominator. It declares that interests of foreign governments are the same as the interests of the American government because America is a “multicultural society”. It explains Juan McCain’s interest in “Mexican-American” desires of the government of Mexico above the interest of “American-American” well being.
The Left has purposefully shut out the American-American community and interests from multiculturalism for destabilization. This is why I refer to our elected officials as “citizens and representatives of the world” rather than citizens and representatives of America.
