Bribed For Nuke Secrets?

By Cernig

Sibel Edmonds, former FBI translator turned whistleblower has been trying for years to get the US media and political in-crowd to sit up and listen. She's finally gone to the UK to spill some of what no-one on this side of the pond seems to want to listen to.

The front-page tale she has told to Murdoch's London Sunday Times involves senior American officials and politicians hip-deep in bribery and espionage to sell American nuclear secrets to to Turkish and Israeli interests. In turn, Israel used that knowledge to become a nuclear power while the Turks turned it over to A. Q. Khan - the man who gave Pakistan The Bomb and who proliferated that knowledge to Libya, Iran and North Korea and possibly even Al Qaeda.

The Brad Blog has the backstory on Edmond's attempts to make the US establishment listen, and also names some names missing from the Times story.
