Greenwald and Edmonds Have Both Done Tremendous Good
Glenn Greenwald and Sibel Edmonds are both heroes.
Greenwald has not only published the Snowden leaks, but has railed against torture, drone warfare, government secrecy and many other forms of government corruption and abuse for many years.
Former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds was very well known after 9/11 for her allegations about corruption in U.S. intelligence agencies.
Edmonds was been deemed credible by:
The Department of Justice’s Inspector General
Several senators (free subscription required)
A coalition of prominent conservative and liberal groups
The ACLU described Edmonds as:
The most gagged person in the history of the United States of America.
As such, Edmonds knows what it’s like to be a whistleblower.
And famed Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg – who is a hero to Greenwald and Snowden – says that Edmonds possesses information “far more explosive than the Pentagon Papers”.
Additionally, Edmonds broke the story this summer that a former NSA whistleblower says the government is using the information obtained by spying to blackmail people … including government officials. Edmonds’ reporting led PBS and other media to interview the whistleblower.
Greenwald has recently become much better-known that Edmonds:
But that doesn’t mean that she should be brushed off as unimportant.
The Main Difference Between Greenwald and Edmonds
Greenwald and Edmonds have butted heads concerning allegations that Greenwald’s new employer – EBay founder Pierre Omidyar – has cooperated with the NSA and is suppressing Snowden documents. (We have no idea whether or not the allegations are true, because we have not talked to any sources who would know.)
But we believe that a more important difference between Greenwald and Edmonds has to do with their interest in false flag terrorism.
Specifically, governments from around the world have ADMITTED that they carry out false flag terror … terrorist acts which they falsely blame on their enemies in order to justify.
Edmonds frequently writes on the topic … but Greenwald has never written a single word on it.
Given that the NSA spied on the 9/11 hijackers and Americans BEFORE 9/11, and that one of the NSA’s main justifications for spying – the lone wolf terrorist – is a myth, Greenwald should be naturally-curious about this topic.
And given that the NSA has carried out offensive attacks which were intentionally made to look like mere equipment malfunction, Greenwald should be interested in this area.
And given that it is well-documented that false flag terror has routinely been used by governments around the world (Christian, Muslim, Jewish and otherwise) to consolidate control and justify wars – two topics that Greenwald repeatedly addresses – it seems like false flags should be an area of interest for Greenwald.
The bottom line is that Greenwald has done a tremendous amount of good for many years writing about spying, secrecy, torture and war.
His blind spot appears to be false flag terror…
