Sibelology, Part 2 of 2

Continuing from Part 1 reviewing the August 10th, 2005, article Did Speaker Hastert Accept Turkish Bribes to Deny Armenian Genocide and Approve Weapons Sales?:

SIBEL EDMONDS: As I said, Amy, I have been giving all the details to the appropriate channels. And they have been confirmed. And what I have said all along is the fact that as far as the 9/11 is concerned, September 11 is concerned, these departments -- and when I say "these departments," the Department of Justice, the Department of State, and the Department of Defense -- have intentionally blocked the investigations of real -- the real criminals in this country. And we are talking about countries involved. The Vanity Fair article points out to Turkey -- countries. And it's very interesting. To this date, we are not hearing anything about targeting, you know, certain Central Asian countries. They are not speaking about the link between the narcotics and al Qaeda. Yes, we are hearing about them coming down on some charities as the real funds behind al Qaeda, but most of al Qaeda's funding is not through these charity organizations. It's through narcotics. And have you heard anything to this date, anything about these issues which we have had information since 1997? And as I would again emphasize, we are talking about countries. And they are blocking this information, and also the fact that certain officials in this country are engaged in treason against the United States and its interests and its national security, be it the Department of State or certain elected officials.


The Departments of Justice, State and Defense are blocking the investigations of the real 9/11 criminals.

"The Vanity Fair article points out to Turkey -- countries. And it's very interesting. To this date, we are not hearing anything about targeting, you know, certain Central Asian countries. They are not speaking about the link between the narcotics and al Qaeda."

"Central Asian countries" -- well, we know Afghanistan is involved on the production end, and to some extent Pakistan in involved as well. Iran has been a (mostly unwilling) transit country for poppy-based products on the way to Turkey.

But, that's not what she's talking about, is it?

For the most part, the countries in question share the Turkic background with Turkey, and the Sunni Muslim background with Al Qaeda and Saudi Arabia.

The countries we need to examine have a well-developed and interoperable transport infrastructure, and many other common features, all an inheritance from days under Soviet rule.

These countries became a free-for-all economically, when their strong, centralized economy collapsed with the Soviet Union's demise. And, when centralized policing collapsed, they were left with a power vacuum that organized crime filled nicely. They also share a heritage of government corruption from the Soviet era, a heritage which suits the needs of organized crime.

These countries are located along an old trade route, one of growing importance in the heroin trade as an alternative to Iran, which, contrary to what many people may imagine, has been surprisingly effective in interdicting the flow of narcotics across its territory from Afghanistan and Pakistan to Turkey.


Riddle me this!
I should like to know:
From Afghanistan to Europe,
What's the best way to go?

My curiosity thirsts,
So riddle me again;
What once carried silk,
But now carries heroin?

My curiosity abounds,
So riddle me for three:
What countries are Turkic --
Other than Turkey?

Another question I have,
(Do my riddles grow old?) --
What region has much gas,
As well as black gold?



AMY GOODMAN: Could you name names?


Yes, she could, Amy -- if she weren't gagged.

I appreciate the fact that you are helping call attention to Sibel's case, but your questions imply that you know very little about it yourself, Amy. Sibel can't answer your questions, because she is gagged.

So, if you want to know the answers, you must solve the riddles!


Sibel is a patriot,
And loves her adopted land.
Corruption kills America;
For this Sibel won't stand.

So she went through channels,
Telling stories of spies,
But no authorities investigated,
Though it was known these weren't lies.

Sibel took the matter to court,
Wanting to explain her reasons,
That this wasn't about her job --
It was a case of obvious treason!

Horrified they watched --
The cat was getting out of the bag!
So some slick lawyer said,
"Hey, I know, let's try a gag!"

But the matter ended not there,
As surely it was intended to.
Thanks to Sibel it continues:
Stay tuned for Part Three of Two.
