03/07/07 – Sibel Edmonds and James Bamford – The Scott Horton Show

by | Mar 7, 2007 | Interviews

Former FBI contract linguist-turned-whistleblower Sibel Edmonds and investigative reporter James Bamford discuss the Department of Justice’s abuse of the “State’s Secrets Privilege” to keep Edmonds from telling all she knows about high-level corruption in the Turkish Lobby, the State and Defense Departments and the Congress, a new petition by over 30 organizations demanding hearings into her case and a new FBI whistle-blower, who’s letter the the Department of Justice’s Inspector General [.pdf] reveals that all those wiretaps Edmonds was transcribing were illegal — begun on warrants under the much easier to satisfy-Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act in cases of public corruption.
