What If Sibel Is Right?

Let's just think for a minute about exactly what Sibel Edmonds says:
She says the FBI was investigating a Turkish and Israeli-run network that paid high-ranking American officials to steal nuclear weapons secrets. These were then sold on the international black market to countries such as Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.
Now, ignoring all the official silence and water-muddying, let's just assume that Sibel's allegations are 100% correct. What does it MEAN?

Let's break the story down into its constituent parts:

1. There are highly placed US officials leaking important secrets about nuclear weapons (and other things too, presumably).
2. These officials are being "controlled" (paid) by Israel and Turkey. So both those governments (and others?) have infiltrated the top levels of US government and intelligence agencies.
3. These nuclear (and other?) secrets are being sold on an "international black market".

But surely the most damning fact of all is this:

4. The FBI, the Bush administration, the US Congress and even the US media have all conspired to silence Sibel's allegations.

If you are wondering how far the tentacles of corruption reach, that last one spells it all out, doesn't it?

Now, it would be one thing for spies to betray their country by leaking information to another nation because they felt some compassion or loyalty to that other nation, for whatever reason. But these appear to be corrupt officials who are basically just cashing in on their positions of privilege, and not giving a damn about the consequences. The same can be said for the Israeli and Turkish folks who are on-selling these secrets to the highest bidder. The network does not appear to be motivated by anything other than profit-making. The fact that these secrets are being sold to unstable nations further belies this lack of morality.

But wait a minute, I hear you say - what about the War On Terror? Isn't this exactly the sort of thing that the Bush administration and it's intelligence agencies are most committed to stopping? Hasn't this been their top priority since 9/11/01?

Well, no.

In fact, the entire Bush administration has been complicit in this greedy corruption. The entire War On Terror has been a hoax foisted upon the citizens of the USA (and the world) in order to fill the coffers of Bush's friends in the military-industrial complex.

And these allegations from Sibel Edmonds confirm that. And the more the FBI tries to gag her, and the more they hide the evidence, the more they confirm our worst fears.

The US government has been bought up by corrupt profiteers, who have taken the people of the USA for all they can get. And they are not going to stop until - and unless - you can stop them.

FWIW, this story has gotten mentioned in one U.S. media outlet -- the leftwing talkback radio of Air America and another bloke named Mike Malloy on Nova-M Radio. (He was fired by Air America last year for being too radical.)

The trouble is, leftwing radio is marginalised. Few stations, on crummy frequencies that can't be heard over much of the metropolitan areas where they're located, and programming is irregular. The broadcasts we counted on listening to when we lived in San Francisco would frequently be pre-empted by college basketball games. So the message does not get out. And MSM ignore it.

Plus, with the rampant lying of the Bush era, nothing is believed by everyone. There are people who are sure the U.S. Army found WMDs in Iraq. We know it's BS, but they're sure. And even if it was shown that what Edmonds says is true, there would be lots of people who say it's false.

That's one of the psychological reasons for the blatant bogosity -- if anything can be true or false, then any crime can be committed, because it can be denied. "A million Iraqi dead? You're just one of those conspiracy nuts."

FWIW, I don't necessarily believe Edmonds, nor do I disbelieve her. (Same with that "Ceaser" in Iraq.) I'd like to know more evidence...

And one gruesome thought for why the Bush Crime Family might be leaking nuclear secrets -- perhaps they have concluded that the current mass of humanity is too much for Planet Earth to cope with, so they're setting up a nuclear war to thin the herd. Not them, of course -- they've got the bunkers stocked and ready...

"blatant bogosity" Bukko? And I thought I was the one making new words!

Sounds like a good name for a blog: BUKKOS BLATANT BOGOSITY!

If I was going to do that, I'd call it "Bukko's Blog of Blatant Bogosity." Linguistic formulation courtesy of a political T-shirt booth I saw at a rock festival that went by the name of "T-shirts of Total Radness" run by these two snarky Kiwi blokes. Featured a poster of Jesus drawn in the style of a pre-Renaissance Italian triptych, only he was cradling an AK-47 and wearing a T-shirt that said "Peace the Fuck Out." My kinda humour.
