Is she an attention-seeking menace, does she have some personal ax to grind or is she a good citizen who, at great personal risk, wants to expose corruption at the top levels of American government?
The most gagged person in American history, FBI translator Sibel Edmonds, says she is ready to spill all to any network that will let her do so in an unedited interview. Edmonds says she is ready to name names, reveal post 9/11 cover-ups and even face criminal charges for doing so.
National security surely requires that governments keep certain matters secret, while government officials often survive on cover-up and obfuscation of the truth to protect their own hides. It is also inevitable that government officials will attempt the latter in the name of the former. 9/11 has given government officials a more compelling pretext for this bait-and-switch than they have enjoyed in many years.
Edmonds' insistence makes me wonder what she wants to say.
