Have Turkish Agents Penetrated Highest Echelons of US Government?
There is a new article in The California Courier.
"Have Turkish Agents Penetrated Highest Echelons of US Government?"The article then states:
"The Vanity Fair magazine published last year an investigative article alleging that the American Turkish Council (ATC) and the Assembly of Turkish American Associations (ATAA) had conspired, among other things, to make illegal campaign contributions to the Speaker of the House, Dennis Hastert, in return for blocking a congressional resolution on the Armenian Genocide. The article also mentioned that Turkish agents had infiltrated the highest echelons of the U.S. government.
The main source for some of the Vanity Fair revelations was Sibel Edmonds who had worked as a Turkish translator for the FBI. Unfortunately, she could not disclose most of what she knew on this sensitive subject, as she is legally prohibited from making public the confidential FBI documents that she had translated in the course of her work. All attempts by U.S. courts or Members of Congress to get out the full facts have been quashed by the Bush Administration, using the cover of protecting national security.
There is a clear need for a congressional hearing to expose all the facts of this very serious matter. However, it would be impossible to hold such a hearing as long as the White House and the Congress are controlled by Republicans who are eager to protect not only their own leadership in the House but also many top officials in both the Pentagon and the State Department who are allegedly involved in these illegal activities.
Furthermore, while the Bush administration is aggressively confronting the Korean and Iranian nuclear programs, shouldn’t the American public expect a similar concern for Turkey’s efforts in this regard, particularly since it is alleged that high ranking current and former administration officials are covertly assisting Turkey to go nuclear?
