    "The other thing I noticed is how Chicago, with its culture of political corruption, is central to the new administration."

    Furthermore there is no evidence that Catli lived in the US much less was granted permanent residency.

      Everyone is entitled to an opinion. Everyone should be entitled to challenge or qualified the opinions of others.

      I doubt Sibel Edmonds knows much about Chicago, other than what she reads in the papers. But, then again, there's a lot to read in the papers. And the same goes for Washington DC.

        a culture of corruption.

        And it's not wrong to say so.

        Only some conservatives are racist. The rest are merely enabling racists, allying with racists, and hoping they win the next election with racism.

        Vanity Fair has established that around the time the Dickersons visited the Edmondses, in December 2001, Joel Robertz, an F.B.I. special agent in Chicago, contacted Sibel and asked her to review some wiretaps. Some were several years old, others more recent; all had been generated by a counter-intelligence that had its start in 1997. "It began in D.C.," says an F.B.I. counter-intelligence official who is familiar with the case file. "It became apparent that Chicago was actually the center of what was going on."

        [ . . . ]

        In her secure testimony, Edmonds disclosed some of what she recalled hearing. In all, says a source who was present, she managed to listen to more than 40 of the Chicago recordings supplied by Robertz. Many involved an F.B.I. target at the city’s large Turkish Consulate, as well as members of the American-Turkish Consulate, as well as members of the American-Turkish Council and the Assembly of Turkish American Associates.

        And then we have Mehmet Celebi fundraising for Rahm Emanuel.  Yeah, that would be THAT Mehmet Celebi.

        So much for Chicago.
