Sibel Edmonds news

The ACLU is urging the Supreme Court to hear Edmonds' case, and is challenging former Attorney General John Ashcroft's use of the "state secrets" privilege. Associate Legal Director Ann Beeson said the rarely invoked privilege "should be used as a shield for sensitive evidence, not a sword the government can use at will to cut off argument in a case before the evidence can be presented...."

Meanwhile, Vanity Fair's current issue contains a profile of Edmonds by British writer David Rose, who says that House Speaker Dennis Hastert is one of the many high-ranking people Edmonds claims would be exposed in a very bad way if her tapes were released.

According to comments Edmonds has made in the past, the corruption at the top of the government is impressive, and every measure has been taken to keep the content of the tapes from being revealed.
