Living in Idaho is no excuse

While reading an article in a British newspaper online a few weeks ago, I
noticed that most of the comments were from Americans, even to the point
that a Brit questioned whether the availability of similar information was
that scarce in America.

He has no idea.

What have you seen about Sybil Edmonds and what she discovered during her 6
months as a Turkish translator for the FBI? Look hard.

On January 7, Dave Lindorff in The Huffington Post reviewed an article from
The Sunday Times (British) from January 5 regarding Edmonds' discoveries
when working for the FBI and her subsequent experience as a whistleblower.

Lindorff wrote, "...there is enough in just this one London Times story to
keep an army of investigative reporters busy for years. So why...is this
story appearing in a highly respected British newspaper, but not anywhere in
the corporate US media?"

Lindorff also writes, "If Edmonds' story is correct, it casts an even darker
shadow over the mysterious and still unexplained incident last August 30,
when a B-52 Stratofortress, based at the Minot strategic air base in Minot,
ND, against all rules and regulations of 40 years' standing, loaded and flew
off with six unrecorded and unaccounted for nuclear-tipped cruise missiles."

US Navy and Air Force veterans say Defense Secretary Robert Gates'
explanation of an "accident" is not believable.

Lindorff adds, "Incredibly, almost five months after that bizarre incident
(which included several as yet unexplained deaths of B-52 pilots and base
personnel occurring in the weeks shortly before and after the
flight)...there has been no Congressional investigation and no FBI
investigation."

It looks like the only "accident" was the failure to stop the three
as-yet-unnamed Air Force whistleblowers who contacted the Military Times
newspaper. I salute those three and their partner-in-truth Edmonds!
