Stephen M. Kohn of the National Whistleblowers Center says that for national security whistleblowers, Obama’s presidency has been “a disaster.” Kohn, the author of eight books on whistleblower law, represents Sibel Edmonds, an FBI whistleblower and the author of the just-released Classified Woman. Edmonds submitted her book to the FBI for censorship, and the FBI failed to identify anything that she could not print, but also refused to approve of the book. Edmonds, however, has gone ahead and published it. The book protects, rather than endangering, national security. But it does embarrass the FBI. http://bit.ly/IQag6G
"Edmonds must feel a bit like Alice at the tea party, where just ice is not being served, and where a secret is a secret but why it's a secret or who says it's a secret is a secret, and we can't tell you why because it's a secret."
-- Seattle Post
"She's credible. And the reason I feel she's very credible is because people within the FBI have corroborated a lot of her story."
-- Sen. Grassley on 60 Minutes
"Sibel Edmonds would not let an intimidating FBI shut her mouth, and as a result, suffered grievous consequences, but she has persevered and we are better off for her sacrifices.""
-- Paul Newman
"The silencing of Edmonds has been remarkably silent. Which is probably just what the FBI was counting on in the first place."
-- Clay Risen, The New Republic
