    Thanks for breaking this into bite-sized chunks, but it's still hell on the digestive tract.  I have only two questions at this point, and nobody here can answer them definitively.

    Is there hard evidence of all this?  Would Perle, Feith, et al, simply be guilty by association or were they actively participating in the drug and arms dealing?

    I'd like to take Sibel Edmonds' word for it -- that's exactly what makes me a little skeptical.

      documents, wiretaps, and a bunch of agents who were in charge of the counter-intelligence operations who ae willing to testify.

      and if that's not enough, this has all been investigated and proven already in multiple forums.

      how's that?

      ...the detailed evidence.  So, we have to learn to trust Sibel on this.  She has been deemed credible by Senators Grassley and Leahy, Congressman Waxman and the Inspector General.  Furthermore, the Bush Administration's reaction to her case, the excessive use of secrecy to silencer her, tells us the U.S. government takes her charges seriously.

      Finally, I would like to add, Sibel is not gaining personally from any of this.  And some of us in the blogosphere who have had the opportunity to correspond with Sibel know that she's a) very bright, b) very level-headed and practical and c) is not given to making wild charges or unsupported statements.
