Justice Dept. Opposes Bid to Revive Case Against F.B.I.
by John Files


WASHINGTON - The government has told a federal appeals court that a suit by an F.B.I. translator who was fired after accusing the bureau of ineptitude should not be allowed to proceed because it would cause "significant damage to the national security and foreign policy of the United States."

Lawyers for the government said in a brief filed with the court on Thursday that the suit could not continue without disclosing privileged and classified information. <skip>

The case has become a lightning rod for critics who contend that the bureau retaliated against Ms. Edmonds and other whistle-blowers who have sought to expose management problems related to the antiterrorism campaign.

The A.C.L.U. joined her cause last month, when it asked the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to reinstate her suit against the government. The suit was dismissed in July after Attorney General John Ashcroft invoked a rarely used power and declared the case as falling under "state secret" privilege. <skip>

1. Also the Indira Singh whistleblowing backs up the Edmonds case
as does all the FBI whistleblowers in Minneapolis (Colleen Rowley et al) as does...well you get the picture. Why all the whistleblowers ? Check into Operation Mockingbird and then delve more deeply into the meaning of propagandist Gannon/Guckert...what is the media all about today ?

Intimidation and propaganda.
