Longtime Zemblans are certainly aware that we have over the years devoted a goodly amount of wordage to the case of fired FBI translator (and 9/11 whistleblower) Sibel Edmonds, but our own desultory, secondhand reportage pales beside that of our learned colleague Lukery Land, who corresponds frequently with Ms. Edmonds, and who publishes the fruits of his research at the exemplary blog WotIsItGood4. We have not read a more astonishing document in calendar year 2007 than the transcript of Mr. Land's radio interview with Scott Horton of Antiwar.com, a discussion that ranges from:
- the attempt, by certain of her FBI colleagues, to recruit Ms. Edmonds into a de facto espionage ring affiliated with the American Turkish Council; to
- the shadowy connections among Afghan warlords, Turkish drug smugglers, and American lobbyists and Congressmen; to
- the process by which neoconservatives "distort American policy" and line their own pockets simultaneously; to
- American complicity in the spread of nuclear technology by Dr. A. Q. Khan of Pakistan; to, last but not least,
- the curious link between outed CIA operative Valerie Plame and the American Turkish Council
too kind! (and sweet summary!) Thnx Simbaud.
