The Highjacking of A Nation

Sibel Edmunds, the former FBI translator who has been steadily blowing the whistle of malfeasance and cover-up since September 11, 2001, is a founding member of the National Security Whistleblowers Coaltion. For it she has written a two part essay called The Highjacking of a Nation.

Part 1: The Foreign Agent Factor

“Today, foreign influence, that most baneful foe of our republican government, has its tentacles entrenched in almost all major decision making and policy producing bodies of the U.S. government machine. It does so not secretly, since its self-serving activities are advocated and legitimized by highly positioned parties that reap the benefits that come in the form of financial gain and positions of power.”

No need to be hypothetical, she says. We have recent history on hand:

“Our investigators [says Senator Bob Graham] found a CIA memo dated August 2, 2002, whose author concluded that there is incontrovertible evidence that there is support for these [September 11, 2001] terrorists within the Saudi government. On September 11, America was not attacked by a nation-state, but we had just discovered that the attackers were actively supported by one, and that state was our supposed friend and ally Saudi Arabia.”

Part 2: The Auctioning of Former Statesmen & Dime a Dozen Generals

“Operating invisibly under the radar of media and public scrutiny, lobby groups and foreign agents have become the ‘epicenter’ of our government, where former statesmen and ‘dime a dozen generals’ cash in on their connections and peddle their enormous influence to the highest bidders turned clients. These groups’ activities shape our nation’s policies and determine the direction of the flow of its taxpayer driven wealth, while to them the interests of the majority are considered irrelevant, and the security of the nation is perceived as inconsequential.”
