Sibel Edmonds — the FBI intelligence analyst who was fired and placed under a lifelong gag-order for having found criminal wrongdoing during an investigation of a member of Congress, and who had found what she says was clear criminal involvement by “top level” officials at FBI in the process of that investigation — has now revealed in a 17 February 2017 online video at her website Newsbud, that, prior to 9/11,
(32:40) “The FBI was not allowed to have an official Turkish desk for counter-intelligence, because [of] Turkey’s direct involvement in the [CIA’s] Operation Gladio related activities, both with NATO and also the State Department, and the CIA. The other country that was exempt was the United Kingdom — England is exempt [from investigation]; there is no desk for England; and the third country exempt from counter-intelligence investigations by the FBI is Belgium [which is head of the EU]. After 9/11, due to what had happened, and due to certain actors that had ties or connections to various countries, including Turkey, basically they decided to override it and they started a Turkish desk, but they never started a UK or Belgium desk in the Washington field office counter-intelligence division, which is the largest, the main counter-intelligence division for all FBI offices in the country; everything is handled from the FBI’s Washington field office.” (33:45)
Consequently, the CIA’s Operation Gladio, which specializes in setting up terrorist acts that are pre-designed so as to be blamed upon countries that the U.S. government wants to control or else overthrow (these are called in the intelligence-trade “false-flag” events, because they’ve been designed to be blamed upon a country that had nothing to do with it, and are thus “false flag”) was continuing at least up till 9/11. Somehow, Sibel Edmonds was able to reveal this, despite her gag-order, but the gag-order itself is top-secret, and therefore we can’t know exactly what it states.
Also consequently, the American government’s closest, most intimate, two allies are UK and Belgium. Until 9/11, Turkey was also among the three.
Then (34:10), she reveals the identity of the U.S. Representative who was the target of that investigation. She had earlier in this same video explained that the Representative had been blackmailed or “hooked” against her will, as Edmonds put it, into cooperating with a foreign government’s spying operation — that this was not done because of the Representative’s lack of natural patriotism but because some force was being applied against her, because revealing the Representative’s homosexuality would have ended that person’s career in public office — this was back in 2001, when anti-homosexual bigotry was common in the United States. Not to participate in the spying would have terminated that Representative. The person’s picture is finally put onscreen: it is “Jan Schakowsky of Chicago, and her husband, another target of the investigation, Robert Creamer, who usually goes by [the name of] Bob Creamer. And another state representative in Illinois, and [yet] another executive branch government official in the state of Illinois that was involved in a high level criminal operation that ranged from narcotics, money laundering, and in this case also espionage-related activities.” (34:50).
At this point, Edmonds reveals that — and this was right before she had been fired — she then contacted the FBI’s Israel desk in order to request information they might have regarding Jan Schakowski; and (35:38) “In this case they told me that this information they could not share with me, because it was based on need-to-know basis. However, they could provide me with general information which had to do with this congresswoman, Jan Schakowski, and her role that she had been playing for the country of Israel, for her handlers, who were part of the top two lobbying groups in the United States. And the role that they had set up for this congresswoman was to pretend that she was pro-Palestinian, and to cozy up to various activist groups and entities as not anti-Israel exactly but pro-Palestinian, someone who speaks against Israel’s actions … and under that role she would gain access to information and would pass it on to officials at [garbled] and AIPAC, and they would send the information to their handlers, I assume to be in Israel.”
So: Jan Schakowski had been blackmailed by someone to pretend to be sympathetic to Palestinians, so as to extract from pro-Palestinian activists in the U.S., information regarding the plans of their organizations, and pass that information along, via AIPAC and one other Israeli front group, the information, so that Israel’s government could then act on it, in ways to reduce the effectiveness of America’s pro-Palestinian organizations.
Furthermore (37:00), “This congresswoman had acted, in the U.S. Congress in Washington DC, to hide high-level secret documents, because she also played some role in the Intelligence Committee, even though she was not the higher-up level, she had access to top-secret U.S. intelligence information. Well, this information that she had access to was beneficial to several countries. Israel was one of them.” (37:30)
Israel wasn’t only spying on America but was also blackmailing American officials to spy for them. But Edmonds is under a gag-order, which prevents her from revealing certain details — and/or from revealing entirely other operations or findings.
