62. I suspect something devious in the works too. Read my post above.
I'm guessing that it is NO coincidence of the timing of this story is right before the big primary there, where most eyes are glued to stories on Obama and Clinton, and distracted from any stories like this showing up. They can later claim as you state that they "covered" it, and that we as the people didn't care about it.

And as I note above, the pattern of right wing owned publications increasingly covering Sibel Edmonds' stories and the pattern of avoidance by folks like Waxman, etc. I think is being "engineered" to perhaps try and bring about some new "right wing" rennaissance of media dedicated to "the truth" over what has been ruling us by BOTH parties to this point that has failed us. With the amount of money funding these publications, as well as funding the disinformation and censorship in the other corporate media publications to prevent stories from showing up there in what are regarded as more "neutral" (though corporate) publications, I can see this sort of manipulation going on.

We need to be VERY careful how we endorse these publications, and pick apart carefully like another poster on this thread has how they are manipulating the story through edits to perhaps serve a larger and more nefarious purpose here, but not openly doing so so that we seal them up completely. We need to exploit them putting what they are out there now to newer eyeballs, but we need to ensure that those eyeballs aren't being propagandized into their world view through LTTE's, etc. that can fill in the gaps the way these publications might not want to have them filled to suit their purposes.
